Agadir nightlife: Top tipsIn general, the nightlife in Agadir is much more low key than in Marrakech and Casablanca. Even so, there's plenty to keep you and the family entertained if a more laid-back scene is what you're looking for. Some Agadir bars are open until late, and there are a couple of nightclubs if you fancy staying out until the early hours. When the sun goes down, the promenade along Agadir beach is a firm favourite among locals. They come here to enjoy the cafés and restaurants, many of which are open until late. It's a particularly popular spot during the summer months, when the weather's warm but there's still a lovely sea breeze. In August, a music festival takes place close to the promenade, so you can expect to see lots of people around. This is the one time we recommend booking ahead if you've got a romantic night out planned, as the crowds are big and you might find it difficult to bag a seat at a restaurant.
