as the red city, built out of burnt clay and
nestled in a thousand year-old palm grove
cherished as one of the city’s most precious
testaments to its rich history, visitors and
natives alike find Marrakech the most
beloved city in all of Morocco.
Its charm reflects in the silver
jewelry laid out on carpets, in the hamamms
hidden within its narrow streets, in the
myriad of colors and scents emanating from
busy souks and bustling marketplaces. A city
steeped in the traditional Berber culture,
it is a meeting place for people of all
likes. It is the point where the North
encounters the South, perched on the edge of
the Atlas Mountains and a gateway to
Northern Africa’s notorious Sahara Desert.

With our will to celebrate both the
best of our native country and our new home
in Washington DC we have infused the most
celebrated aspects of old world Marrakech
with Washington’s unique history of
multi-culturism and unique culinary tastes.
As a natural crossroads of Europe,
Africa and the Middle East, Morocco’s
cuisine has been influenced by both Spanish
and French culture, while still maintaining
its traditional tagines and couscous.
We invite you to join us for a cup of
mint tea, relax and soak in the extravagant
fabrics and tiles of a far-away exotic land.
At Marrakech every guest is treated to
the finest in Moroccan hospitality.
