Open in the evening at weekends (check online for midweek events), the exotic Kemia bar’s raffish Tangiers opium den pose sets the scene for a tasty tagine of global beats and occasional live performances from sultans of swing such as Seu Jorge and Youssou N’Dour – both of whom have played this room. Loll on Berber day beds or park up on a leather pouffe for Champagne, fine Tunisian and Lebanese red wines, bottled spirits and mixers (Tanqueray, Chivas Regal or Pampero Especial at £150, for example). Otherwise, fall for sexy cocktails such as Ali Baba, Al Ameer (Courvoisier, port, orange liqueur, lime and pineapple) or Marrakesh O Marrakesh – effectively a Pampero Blanco rum and Pommery mojito. For steamy Arabian Nights and tapas bites, this Moroccan dive(via Paris) is a Mayfair must.
