Marrakech has many faces. It is the frenetic, overwhelming, teeming city of souks and sun, an undimmed beacon to all would be bohemians. There is also the glamorous Marrakech of travel supplements, stylish and hip, for those for whom St Tropez is so yesterday. Le Blokk belongs to the latter. This restaurant and cocktail lounge in the Palameraie combines a retro vibe, a dash of old school cool, with a modern Euro-sheen. The décor is smooth and earth-toned, the crowd dressed up and groomed to the hilt. There’s frequent live music and a superior fusion menu.
