Spain-Morocco 2015

Casablanca, Rick’s Cafe

Thank you all for checking my blog and for writing comments. It is fun to receive comments from you my dear blog readers.

This is my last post from Casablanca. The next one will be from Marrakech, where we were all day today, enjoying a very, very hot day.

Before we left Casablanca, we had lunch at this famous or legendary cafe, built……… in 2003-4, the place was designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic Casablanca. Set in an old courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina of Casablanca, the restaurant – piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film: curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades as well as beaded and stencilled brass lighting and plants that cast luminous shadows on white walls. There is an authentic 1930’s Pleyel piano and As Time Goes By is a common request to the in-house pianist. (Google)
