Erbil Mamounia Sky Bar


Where Spectacular Views Meet Lounge Music

For an unforgettable night out with the latest lounge music and cocktails of all kinds, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, there is no other choice than Mamounia Sky Bar in Erbil, the Kurdistan region in the north of Iraq.

Located on the top floor of the newly-opened Noble Hotel in the Ankawa district of Erbil, Mamounia Sky Bar is a unique combination of a sophisticated night venue, a modern night club with upbeat lounge music, and a posh restaurant with international dishes. The Noble Hotel is centrally located as the Ankawa district is just a few minutes from the International Airport of Erbil and the ancient Citadel in the center of the city.

The place is absolutely impressive. From the amazing view of Erbil’s skyline at night to its stunning modern decoration, and from the variety of its drinks to the diversity of its menu, there is nothing left to desire.

A Party Hot Spot

Mamounia Sky Bar attracts large crowds of expats who love loud music till late at night, but young local people often come to experience western-style entertainment and have a drink at the bar. The staff is friendly, polite, and highly trained to offer the best possible service, while the creativity of the head chef is behind the western gourmet dishes that the kitchen of the bar offers.

At night the place attracts well-dressed people who want to spend the night in style, impress and be impressed, and chill out with lounge music, so this can be the ideal choice to wine and dine with a business associate.

On Thursday night, the place is transformed into a lively club that stays open until late and attracts a large number of people, so it would be wise to book your seats in advance.

In spring and summer when the evenings are warm, you can enjoy your drink, or shisha, on the spacious outdoor terrace and enjoy the last rays of the setting sun illuminate the tops of the city’s modern high rises.

Night Life in Erbil   

While the city offers a large number of cafés and restaurants, night clubs and dance clubs are few and far between. However, the ones that exist can be mostly found in the city’s large luxurious hotels and can satisfy the need for night entertainment of most American or European expats. Of course, if you are coming from a large western metropolis, you must not expect something like the mega-clubs of New York with the top resident DJs and the state-of-the-art sound systems.

Erbil has changed a lot over the last decade and continues to change. As the city flourishes and attracts more and more investments for new businesses and construction projects, the two million people, both locals and foreigners, are enjoying more opportunities and a better quality of life, including entertainment and leisure activities in a safe and secure city. As many people say: “Erbil is turning fast into the Dubai of the North” – and they are most probably right!


Mamounia Sky Bar is a combination of a sophisticated night venue with upbeat, lounge music and a luxury restaurant that offers gourmet international dishes. With excellent night view over the city of Erbil, the Kurdistan region of Iraq, it is the right place to spend the night in style.
