Make yourself at home at the most novel venue in Rabat, with Latin music and tapas.
100% Latin spirit
If you fancy a good knees-up, a bit of live music, some wooden barrels and – to go the whole hog – a nice grilled pork steak, then you must pop along to El Barrio Latino, the food and party hotspot of the city. As the very name suggests, it’s a kind of independent republic at the heart of Rabat, with a great wine and beer list to accompany the hearty dishes and Spanish tapas. Situated near the train station, it becomes the height of madness on Tuesdays and Saturdays when the famed “karaoke nights” take place. But you have to arrive early and be a little patient, because the low prices, live music and party atmosphere are real crowd pullers, and pretty soon its four walls are bursting at the seams. You should definitely book ahead for the show on Friday night, when it’s packed to the rafters until at least two in the morning.
