djinn Cocktail Lounge

Cocktail Lounge

In the simplest terms, djinn are genies. However, to reduce them down to a cartoon image would merely scratch the surface of their role in Moroccan lore. djinn are mischievous spirits - not necessarily good, not necessarily bad. Some are confined to a bottle due to reprehensible acts, though the word’s similarity to a bottle of mischievous alcohol that causes one to commit reprehensible acts is merely a coincidence . . . or is it? Taste our one-of-a-kind cocktails and learn for yourself what happens next.
