Question: Can you drink alcohol in Marrakech?

The official religion in Morroco being Islam, its only fair to wonder if you can drink alcohol in Marrakech. The short answer is yes.

Although Muslims are forbidden to drink alcohol, Morocco is a moderate Islamic country and you are likely to feel free to drink in moderation in private or where alcohol is being served. Outside medinas alcohol may be obtained in some shops and supermarkets and in tourist hotels, especially the larger ones.

Does Marrakech serve alcohol?

In Marrakech, buying alcohol is easier than in the rest of the country. The city benefits from many expensive restaurants and licensed bars. Youll find some licensed liquor stores and two specialist wine merchants in the Newtown district. Its also pretty easy to pop to a supermarket that sells alcohol.
