La Cigale is a bar and restaurant in the center of Casablanca, which is at the corner of the Boulevard Moulay Youssef and Hassan II Avenue. It is a well-known night in the city, it has been open for years and it is known by all taxis. In the first room seems a somewhat seedy bar with antique décor and a fish tank. Fundamentally, the great room has a stage and hosts concerts - this is what gives the place its reputation. This, and the fact that they have kept their prices cheap despite their success. The beer is 20 dirhams (2 euros), while in the trendy bars a beer could cost as much as 5 euros. Many Moroccan groups have become famous thanks to their concerts at La Cigale. An old man organises the programme, and he also is a waiter at times... he is quite a character.
Xanadu is located in the suburb of Ain Diab, the liveliest quarter of Casablanca during the night. It is a bit far from the center of the city. It's a 5-euro taxi ride on the way back (because after 8 pm they charge 50% more) and be careful to only take an official red taxi ... Xanadu is next to several bars and nightclubs, is a place for the young, where they play Eastern music, danse, Egyptian, Lebanese, Moroccan and Algerian ... Also international hits. The place is decorated in an oriental style too. The drinks are very expensive. There are girls there who want foreigners to pay for their drinks. It's a unique environment, one you'll find in many bars in the neighborhood. Xanadu is open until 3 am, then there are some afters but the ambience changes a lot.
