You can drop in here for a drink, even if you are not eating. Good selection of cocktails to enjoy in the small bar area whilst enjoying the ambience

If you're staying in and around the Medina you will find it difficult to find bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Cafe Arabs is very central (in the souk). It's classy and has good food and drink menus. Worth a visit

Thank you everyone. I can confirm Cafe Arabe does serve alcohol during Ramadan. Had a great meal as ever (been eating here for over 10 years) just never visited during Ramadan.
