Crystal opened up some years ago and quickly it climbs the steps and became the No:1 night club in Istanbul
The club is open from midnight to 05:30.. If you happen to arrive there before 2:00 am, you will be alone in the club, but afterwards it is packed with the jigs of Istanbul..
The dress code is required and bouncers are really bouncing..:) But when you are inside, you will love it
Address: Muallim Naci Cad.No:109 Ortakoy - Istanbul
Phone: +90 212 261 19 88
Istanbuls nightlife is amazing.. If you will be trapped in the touristy area, you will loose alot about the nightlife of Istanbul..
The booming nights of Istanbul is much active than many cities in the world.. If I would mention that daily consumption on nightclubs of Istanbul is over million dollars per night.. you can figure how the night beats..
The Clubs has Summer and winter locations.. While summer locations are mainly along the Bosphorus shores, winter locations are in various locations such as Etiler, Levent and Taksim..
The most hip Places in Summer are Reina, Laila, Zihni and Angelique.Buzz,
While Winters most hip places are Babylon, Roxy, Kemanci and Hayal Kahvesi..
Taksim & Beyoglu with its double face is an attracrive destination at nights also... When you walk in daytime, you see a nice atmosphere with old buildings but at nights you wont believe how those scenes has changed and everywhere has become a night entertainment center..
If you are looking for a budgeted nightlife try Taksim and surronding areas... But if you want to know where the real jerks:) are going try Kurucesme area in summer and Levent, Etiler districts in winter..
Dress Code: varies.. but jeans and regular clothes are not accepted in many places..
Note: Many clubs do not allow Single Man inside.. You shall be with an accompanying lady :)
Important Note: Drug using, Selling and carrying is prohibited in Turkey.. though you might see people using drugs.. Do NOT attempt to buy or use.. No foreigners are adviced to use or carry them..
Murpehys Dance Bar
If you happen to spend a day on the asian side of Istanbul, why not end it on a Dance bar..
Murpheys dance bar is located at Kalamis Marina. Open all days and they have special events on every nights. As I like salsa more nowadays, I can tell this is a real good place to have salsa.. Salsa nights are on thursday and sunday nights.. But if you choose another night, dont mind there is still something for you.. This place is awesome in Summer.. just laying in the middle of the marina with a very nice environment..
Only couples are allowed, no cover charge a beer is around 4,- USD..
Address: Kalamis Marina
Cumhuriyet Meyhanesi is a very old historical bar and eatery in Istanbul, Which has an history of more than 110 years.
The "Meyhane" is near to Istiklal strret, easily reachable by walking from Istiklal street... In the mid of the street , there is a passage called "Cicek Pasajý". Just next to the passage there is a narrow road going inside full with small restaurants, follow the road, around 150 meters you will reach the "Meyhane"..
It has three floors, on the first two floors you can hear old Turkish music from the Radio and on the Third floor there is live Turkish music form very old days.. You are adviced to make reservation for fridays and weekends.. The mezzes and seafood is very nice and Turkish Raki is a must drink item at the Meyhane.. It is open till 01:00 am and you will enjoy a lot to be in this place, which hosts all kind of generations from various ages..
Credit Cards are accepted and the prices are quiet average..
Dress Code: No dress requirement.. come as you are..
