110. Marrakesh Restaurant DC | Exotic Car show and Dinner
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.
