Going Out in Casablanca

The list of new places to try is constantly being updated, and Shoelifer makes it a point to keep you informed. Whether you’re in the mood for discovering new trendy wine bars, exclusive dining, or coveted brasseries, the editorial team has delved into the three new places that are creating the most buzz!

For an after-work gathering with colleagues, a drink with friends, or a quick dinner for two, going out in Casablanca is often an opportunity to explore new places: new decor, new cocktails, new cuisine, and a new atmosphere… The places where you can have an enjoyable time are initially whispered about, spreading from word of mouth. We’ve selected three that are gaining unanimous approval!

Da Rua, for a French wine tasting

Da Rua is already a well-known spot among Casablanca gourmets. Located near Lycée Lyautey, it’s still the same place but with a new twist. Since mid-October, Da Rua has transformed into a wine and tapas bar. In a relaxed atmosphere, after work or for a snack, you’ll be presented with a menu of various small bites. They also offer cheese or charcuterie boards to share, croquettes, or oysters—all simple and gourmet.

In terms of wine, the restaurant offers a particularly extensive menu. It offers a selection that is sure to delight the palates of wine enthusiasts, both by the glass and by the bottle. From the most classic Chardonnay to reds like Margaux or Pomerol, including Saint-Emilion, the idea at Da Rua is to discover, taste, and indulge! An “old-new” spot to remember for going out in Casablanca.

Open every day from 6:00 PM to 12:30 AM
Da Rua
1 rue Commissaire Le Deuil, Casablanca

L’Étage de l’Abri, to start or extend the evening

A few months ago, we introduced you to the restaurant, l’Abri. As an extension, L’Étage de l’Abri has recently opened its doors and welcomes customers looking for a more festive, more musical atmosphere. The setting, conceived by Imad Rahmouni, is elegant, with mood lighting and particularly opulent decorations. The numerous details implemented have clearly been designed to accentuate the cozy atmosphere. L’Étage de l’Abri is reminiscent of trendy spots in Paris or London. Hand-painted ceilings by artist Karima Mansouri and random  objects scattered about give an artsy feel that contributes to the unique character of the place.

Organized around a large bar, the different spaces (high tables, dining area, and lounge) allow everyone to settle according to their current mood. To the beats of new disco or electro house, trying the array of cocktails offered is quite fun. Finger food, tapas, and appetizers will accompany your tastings. This is more than enough to make you want to go out in Casablanca!

Open Monday to Saturday from 7:00 PM to 1:00 AM – Closed on Sundays
L’Étage de l’Abri
23 Boulevard Bir Anzarane, Casablanca
Tel.: 06 66 20 80 12


L’Avenue Brasserie Nouvelle to fulfill bistronomical desires

Open for about ten days, L’Avenue Brasserie Nouvelle incorporates  French culinary rules in a bistronomic brasserie version. On Avenue Driss Slaoui, this noteworthy new spot for going out in Casablanca appeals to the pleasures of the palate. Punctuated with interior and exterior gardens, the decor is both simple, comfortable, and refined. You can choose to come for lunch or for dinner. As night falls, a singer takes the microphone to provide a live accompaniment to the dinners. The menu is creative and focused on local products.

In the kitchen, we find Chef Ramzi, who has worked in renowned French establishments such as Joël Robuchon or Michel Guérard. His goal is to offer a cuisine with bold flavors made of surprising and subtle touches. Among his specialties are red tuna carpaccio, sea bass ceviche, and caramelized beef cheek. Yum.

Open Monday to Friday from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM and then from 7:00 PM to midnight. Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 PM to midnight.
