The Mediterranean is getting a little closer to the Midwest.

A new Moroccan restaurant, Arabesk Palace, is ready to open, the South Bend Tribune reports.

The restaurant, located at 1701 N. Ironwood Drive in South Bend, intends to have a soft opening on Thursday, with a grand opening event planned for this weekend.

Lunch will be available every day of the weekend in a relaxed casual atmosphere, but in the evenings Arabesk will transform into more of a nightlife destination.

Arabesk will be offering not only traditional Mediterranean food, but a hookah lounge and live entertainment, too — think Moroccan music and belly dancers. On weeknights, the atmosphere will focus on being a spot for folks to grab a cocktail or a craft beer, while weekend evenings will see live entertainment, the Tribune reports.

On a standard Thursday night of there will be a cover charge of $10,  but the restaurant/venue is waiving the fee tomorrow and offering reduced cover of $15 on Friday.

Patrons can expect to find traditional Mediterranean food on the menu, including hummus, falafels, baba ghanouj, shawarma, tabbouleh, and skewers and kabobs.

The restaurant will be open from noon to midnight Sunday to Wednesday, and from noon to 3 a.m. Thursday to Saturday, and is only open to people 21 and older, according to Arabesk’s website.
