110. Marrakesh Restaurant DC | Exotic Car show and Dinner

Posted at August 21, 2011 by 12 Comments

Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

The long walk to my car had felt weird to begin with.

Now I was sure my car had gotten smaller.  The seats just didn’t feel right.  My mind was racing, but I was too exhausted to accurately hone in on my thoughts.

Lights were too bright. Voices were too loud.

And what does any of this have to do with Marrakesh Restaurant in Washington DC?

Turns out this was my mind’s way of refocusing after having experienced one of the best nights I’ve had in Washington D.C. : -)

Marrakesh Restaurant Exotic Car Show and Dinner

So the night started with a viewing of a collection of exotic cars.  While the car show was a one-off event, I felt I would be remiss if I didn’t share this part of the event.  Seeing these exotic cars was an absolutely lovely start to the evening.

Then we headed inside for dinner.  It almost feels strange calling Marrakesh a restaurant.  It should really be called “The Marrakesh Experience”.  Even without the car show component (which was a special event), dinner itself was an experience of its own.  It was a wonderful collection of multiple courses that included some of the best chicken I’ve ever had in my life.

With the hospitality and wonderful food, it really felt like I was hanging out at a friend’s home (a friend with awesome taste in decor and who knew how to throw a party that is!)

Lovely food, laughter, what more could I ask for right?  Well, there was more to come!  The night was capped with a magical performance from the most amazing belly dancer I’ve ever seen!

It was a night of laughs, great food, fun dancing, gracious hosts, and a new experience to add to my list of wonderful things to do in DC.

Marrakesh is an authentic Moroccan experience complete with cushion seating, belly dancing,  and a fixed seven course meal.  You definitely have to check them out.


Take a sec to meet the folks behind DC Metro Media that put this wonderful event together.  Definitely reach out to them if you’re looking for an experienced team to conceive, plan, and manage your event in the D.C metro area.

Hope you check out Marrakesh restaurant.  It was an amazing experience and a night I won’t soon forget.

  1. This was SUCH a great time! Love the coverage, Rohan! From the drive down to the restaurant to parking the cars, belly dancing, lemon chick (omg, I’m so hungry) I had such a great time! Cannot wait for the next one! Thanks so much for coming, covering the event, and being awesome!

      Oh you’re right I skipped the drive down, shoot there was even more to the evening. I would have combusted from all the excitement! Congrats again for a superb event. You guys rock!

    Great time – Was amazing seeing 395 bottle necking due to the 35 car strong exotic car caravan, and even crazier watching New York Ave shut down when everyone arrived and attempted to park at Marrakesh. The athmosphere was amazing in the restaurant, the food finger licking (Literally as you eat with your hands)and the entertainment phenomial!

      Great! Look forward to them. Vancouver is so full of great photo opioetunptirs (especially Robson Street and Granville Island). While I was there this summer, I took some interesting photos of people at those two places.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet shall be much more helpful than ever before.

    Terrific article. I’d been checking regularly this site and I am prompted! Worthwhile info specifically the concluding segment 🙂 My partner and i manage similarly info a great deal. I became seeking this particular info for a long period. Thanks a lot along with all the best.

    I disagree about the boy sohrts. I think they shorten the leg line and make girls look hippier than they are. I love tanga panties which are halfway between a bikini and a thong. They show just enough butt to be fun.I love these sets really cute. And I love your blog design.
