Although Morocco is an Islamic country, alcohol is freely sold and served. However, Rabat has a bit of a quieter nightlife scene than Casablanca or Marrakesh. There are several places which operate at night hours but do not serve alcohol. Most bars and night clubs are in western style, some of them located within international hotels.
