My best nightlife in Agadir was sitting in an airmchair in the yard of El Bahia Hotel under the Moroccan sky, drinking beer and getting traveling plans for the next day. Add some interesting talkings with backpackers from Europe including a group of Brits driving to Mauritania, Senegal and Gambia.
Urszula (my wife) enjoyed Polish TV (Polsat) which, as I got to know, was very popular in Morocco for the two reasons: football matches in the evenings and... Polish women :-) dancing in the morning (disco polo music).
Once we tried to find some night club/bar in downtown Agadir (30 min. walk from our hotel) but it was simply too crowded, too noicy and too expensive and reminded me Spanish Torremolinos in high season. We ended with a beer (not very good but expensive) in a crowded, noisy bar.
Dress Code: Whenever you go, casual dress (jeans or shorts + T-shirt + sandals or trainers) is OK.
In the evening its a popular thing to do go have a coffee with some good company, talk and people watch and enjoy a few nice patisseries.
There are quite a number of good and popular cafes around the town centre and down along the promenade/the road that runs along the beach.
They generally close earlyish about 10-10.30 pm. Of course not only coffee is available - you may prefer a panache ie a cocktail of juices, a almond or avocado smoothie, mint tea......
Dress Code: anything casual as long as its tidy but generally Moroccos prefer to dress well so you can take the opportunity to dress up.
Not only during the day, but also at night it's nice to visit the beach and ocean area. You can walk in the white and clean sands of the beach or along the paved corniche having a drink at one of its terraces. You can also go to the terrace of one the beachbars of the hotels like the one of the Atlas Amadil Beach Hotel. Sitting here more south at the beach you can see the kasbah hill with all its lights as a clear landmark.
Dress Code: The ocean breeze can be a bit cool in the night, so even in summer it can be comfortable to have a shirt with long sleeves.
Every evening you can go to a restaurant or bar with a terrace for dinner or a drink. At some places is life music, especially around the Boulevard du 20 Aout.
In several hotels they offer traditional dances and music one or more evenings a week. In hotel Igoudar during our first stay in Agadir we looked at a performance of traditional dances. The women were wearing very colourful dresses. We enjoyed the dresses, the dancing and even more the accompanying Morrocan music.
Two times -early and late evening- I went to the bar of the Amadil Beach Hotel with my Moroccan VT-friends. You can chose to sit inside in the atrium close to the bar or outside with view at the ocean and at the background the Kasbah Hill.
Later in the evening there is life music in the atrium. At the bar you can order all kind of drinks wine, beer, juices and cocktails.
The only place I could find to have a drink without going to a restuarant. This place is a good fare size and many travellers come here for a drink like we would do but it is also very dark and many local girls come looking for foreign men here.
There is a dance floor but it is small.
Dress Code: No dress code needed here.
The beachfront of Agadir(corniche).It has many cafes on the side,I loved just sitting there and enjoying watching people walking by,the old and the young.
It`s the local families getaway.
There are many restaurants too to dine at.
Dress Code: Anything comfortable!
We were here on Christmas Day, where the staff persuded me to have a go a Salsa dancing, it was a good laugh, and all the staff where all very friendly.
Dress Code: I think anything goes, smart casual or dressed up.
In August 2011 I discovered Club Salambbo which is in Banana Village area opposite Fouquet Bar but much higher up. It is a European setting playing global pop music - a great disco experience.
What I liked is that it was not overcrowded and it seemed to be a mix of tourists and locals.
Drinks were expensive 50dh for a little Heieneken. Further, the people seemed very friendly and the bar service was very efficient.
Whilst I like Factory night club, Salambbo seems very cosey and relaxing.
Dress Code: I would suggest smart casual wear
