Nightlife in Istanbul is huge. There are many popular establishments — some aged over thirty years old and some very down to date. Being such a big city with several city centers, Istanbul has more than one entertainment destination.
Located in Ortaköy, Anjelique is giving service at a three-level waterside mansion with an amazing Bosphorus view. This venue is an ideal place to enjoy the nights and to have fun.
The venue is located in a penthouse of a 19th-century apartment building with 360 degrees fascinating landscape views of the Bosphorus, Golden Horn, and the Sea of Marmara. The place expresses itself with four elements: cuisine, design, entertainment, and atmosphere. The club comes alive on the weekends, offering DJs and vocalists with live dancers and performances, and non-stop partying until the early morning hours.
Klein Club is a popular club located in Harbiye within a walking distance from Taksim. Klein offers a great clubbing experience for its visitors with its famous international and national DJs, electronic and techno music shows in an authentic atmosphere. Klein is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 23.00 till 04.00.
Located near the Galata Tower in Galata, Nardis Jazz Club is a real jazz club featuring live jazz during the week from 21:30 to 00:30 and from 22:30-01:30 on weekends. Nardis Jazz Club is a unique place with a capacity of 120 guests and provides a stage for concerts in a club atmosphere.
Founded in 1999 to host the very best of progressive good music in an emerging neighborhood in the heart of Istanbul, Babylon Bomonti transformed the city’s music scene and became a popular club for international and local music culture. Babylon moved to the Bomontiada Campus in 2015 to start a new cultural transformation and host its community at its state of the art and multi-purpose live performance center.
One of the newer additions to the ever-growing Karaköy neighborhood, Finn Karaköy is known for its cool interior as well as its award-winning bartender and owner. A menu of specially selected craft cocktails, DJ performances Friday and Saturday nights, and plenty of delicious side dishes make Finn an excellent spot to party in Istanbul.
In the summer, everyone in Istanbul looks forward to the raging parties at Suma Beach. Located a bit outside the city right on the beach, many spend the day swimming and relaxing and then head to the club in the forest where DJs play until the sun comes out.
If you want to venture further up the Bosphorus, and the Istanbul social ladder, follow the phalanx of Porsches trailing towards Lucca. Situated prominently at the heart of Bebek's cafe scene, this has become the kind of place self-consciously cultish enough to flog homemade albums mixed by the in-house DJs who hold the floor on Friday and Saturday nights. Lucca starts the day as a restaurant and turns into a bar after the sun sets – and a magnet for Istanbul high society.
A small cubbyhole down a side street in Tünel, hidden behind a heavy curtain, Off Pera was – until recently – often completely empty, despite being within stumbling distance of the city's best restaurants and drinking holes. In recent months, however, it has become a bit of an open secret – though it has retained all of its charm. With little floor space, the dance floor rapidly absorbs the club. If you can fight your way into the bar, dance the night away to Turkish and European pop under an extraordinary ceiling of flashing LEDs, presided over by DJs in a bunk bed-like booth halfway up the wall.
Situated in a wonderful location with the stunning Bosphorus views in Kurucesme, Sortie is one of the most popular nightclubs in Istanbul having a complex with a combination of 6 restaurants and 3 bars. Sortie is open every day from 18.00 till 04.00.
