Wow! What an experience! From the lux interior to the friendly staff, it was such a treat! Amazing live band, the best cocktails I have had in yonks and mouthwatering food. I cannot wait to visit Marabi Club again!

We loved the Marabi Club. From the huge bouncers on the vault like door, to the quirky bar with piano keys to the really great jazz, and somewhere to dance the night away. The food is great, a nod to tapas, which works well. You...More
