A bar where conversation, background music, jazz and emblematic songs from many different eras, mix with traditional and stylish cocktails as well as nice wines. This venue opts for a different music style, while others play pop or house hits, Casablanca prefers jazz, not very loud, so you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Thanks to that, Casablanca’s the perfect spot to chill while having a chat with friends, or a romantic date, while drinking a glass of wine (be aware of their great wine selection!).
The Casablanca cocktail bar is run by local couple Juan and Brandon who have owned the place since 1998. A cozy locale with an intimate lounge area decorated with local art on the first floor, the bar hosts regular French-themed nights with plenty of pate and cheese. Casablanca offers an altogether much more relaxed atmosphere than the other Sitges gay bars.
