Despite being around for a while now, Morrocan eatery Marrakech is holding its grand opening tonight. The details we were given were rather brief, but apparently visitors will be able to sample the food and drink between 6pm and 9pm.
The place is well worth a visit, if not for the tasty (if somewhat small-portioned) fare on offer, then for the after-dinner Afro-beat sessions and belly dancing to be had in the bongo room, complete with shisha pipes. The labyrinthine interior is spot on (though watch out for the odd randomly placed step here and there) and, as you’ll find out if taken on a tour by the wonderfully enthusiastic owner, the place is spreading its tendrils further through the French concession block in which it’s housed.
