Rabat Nightlife Walk, Rabat (Self Guided)

Rabat nightlife is very strict. Within the city, drinking alcohol is taboo and it is forbidden to advertise alcohol in any way. So there are few options in a bar with respect to alcohol in Rabat, but you can still enjoy a great night. Most of the bars are located within hotels, but there are bars in other places too. There are also places for non-alcoholic fun, usually involving locals. Nevertheless, this is a fine walk to take in order to see some western-style bars.
