In Casablanca’s city center, between remarkable old buildings with an art deco architecture, there is a small pedestrian street: rue Prince Moulay Abdellah.

Here, the popular Morocco reclaimed its position, blending two cultures and two architectural styles.
This neighborhood, which was very popular in the 1920s, represented the modern lifestyle of the people of Casablanca, up until the 1970s. Some shops, such as Maison de blanc, are real institutions and all the inhabitants of Casablanca still goes there for home linen.

Men have their fair share of stores as well. Indeed, rue Prince Moulay Abdellah hosts several suit and shirt shops that sell items at very affordable prices. They cater to every taste, both in terms of styles and colors. Célio also opened a store in this lively, popular street.
A vibrant neighborhood, it shows a different facet at night, with its many bars and restaurants that appeal to a young, trendy population in search of authentic places. One can have dinner in places dating back to the past century for a nostalgic atmosphere. Restaurant owners have made a point to keep a generous, tasty cuisine.
