The Hole in the Wall Bar, Ave Prince Heritier, Tangier....... by Bennytheball Star this if you like it!

In a traffic congested street in Tangier's city centre, after threading my way through parked cars, hawkers and miscellaneous pavement clutter I finally found my objective described in my Lonely Planet guide book as "the smallest bar in the world"..... Arriving in early evening I pushed open the black swing door which recoiled and collided with an inebriate patron, but no offence was taken when I muttered "smaalee".....sorry! the bar was almost filled to capacity at a count of around twenty all male drinkers intently watching football on the wall-mounted TV screen, the atmosphere was calm and friendly with a few animated conversations in progress among drinkers disinterested in the football, bar service was prompt and efficient from the experienced barman, only Flag and Stork bottle beers are served at 17 dirhams a pop, a few tapas remnants littered the bar top otherwise the main activity centred on swilling back as many cheap beers as possible before moving on to more expensive upmarket establishments. Despite the congestion of bodies I discreetly managed to take a picture of the interior of the bar without provoking any animosity, one of the few survivors from Tangier's notorious Interzone decades.
