For many in Agadir, nightlife constitutes a stroll along the waterfront and a coffee with friends. But with its relaxed mores, Agadir can be a clubbing hot spot, particularly for young people looking to cut loose. Many places don't get going until after midnight, but the beachfront is always busy earlier on, with diners and drinkers making the most of the beach environment. Although Agadir lacks the class of Marrakesh, a number of places, mostly based in the resort hotels, are putting up some decent competition.
Be warned: nighttime also attracts many prostitutes, some underage, who throng the cheap bars. The authorities aren't afraid to imprison foreigners who patronize them. Hotel clubs tend to have a more exclusive patronage; in general, the more expensive the drinks, the fancier the clientele. Many bars and clubs close during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
