Best Night Clubs in Istanbul
One of the frequently asked questions is; which is the best night club in town? First of all, we can say that we have successful DJs. Mahmut Orhan, who shook the world independently, was a serious leap forward in the music industry.
The arrows turned to Turkish music with the music idols in the world doing different covers and bringing together alternative music styles. Moreover, the increase in the combination of oriental and techno music and the DJ love of the new generation increased the interest of Turks in DJ venue culture.
This process was an essential period in the increase in night clubs and the transformation of club styles.
Long story short, let's take a look at the night clubs we have chosen for you, with different styles.
Let's start with one of the oldest entertainment venues in the city center. Kervansaray is a place where you can watch the famous Turkish night shows. In the meantime, you can enjoy your meal and quickly return to your hotel.
Sortie is the place that started the first and oldest luxury night club concept in the city. The most important feature is that it is on the Bosphorus. Therefore, you can enter the club both from the main street and from the sea by boat. However, we recommend that you call ahead and check the crowd situation. We don't want you to be kept outside, just in case.
This is another place in the center of the city. 360 Restaurant & Club is located on Istiklal Street. Although various restaurants with the same name in different parts of the city, the most well-known 360 is here. The venue, which functions as a restaurant, returns to the night club at midnight. You can have your meal and then take your cocktails and continue on the terrace if you wish.
We are in Ritim, and the place is preferred mainly by the youth in Beyoglu. As you can understand from the name of Rhythm, it is a pleasant place for rhythm lovers. Although its area is very narrow, it is a place where its lovers can never give up and repeatedly go every time. We recommend that if you're going to dance, this is the place. While playing Latin rhythms until 12, they return to R&B after 12.
We are in another place whose music is similar to Rhythm. When Beat was first opened, it was a meeting place for expats and exchange students. And this place, where there are ongoing events, has gained incredible popularity over time. Over time, they raised their floors. Now at least three floors, it has become a perfect place for R&B lovers with a terrace. So if you are young, if you feel young and dynamic, we can go now. Are you ready to show your dance moves?
Cahide Music Hall
Do you like a cabaret? Cabarets, the liveliest and most enjoyable entertainment of 80's - 90's Turkey, are now on the stage. Although it is one of the entertainment venues most affected by the pandemic process, Cahide is one of the classics. If you say you can even listen to Turkish speeches on the stage, this is the music hall where locals over 30 have the most fun. Call ahead for your table reservation.
It is one of the places that we can call the pearl of Istanbul's entertainment. The perfect darbuka show venue you will ever watch in your life. You have never seen the service, menu, professional dance team, and Arab-Turkish culture combine so beautifully. A perfect combination of night club, dance and social culture.
Anton Peran is another night club in the Galata area. If you want to have your beer and dance in a cozy and chill place, Anton Peran will be suitable for you. It is one place that the youth love, because the songs played are mostly R&B. After your entertainment, you can quickly return to your hotel without getting stuck in Taksim traffic.
Bosphorus Dinner Cruises
For decades, this is one of the most curious entertainments of those who come to Istanbul. Seeing the Bosphorus in the morning is something different. However, if your time is limited and you want to have dinner and watch a Turkish night while seeing the Bosphorus, here is our option. Turkish nights in the Bosphorus start around 8:30pm. Boats usually depart from Kabatas pier. Please make a reservation to reserve your place, find a good table and choose the appropriate boat. And enjoy night club scenes at Bosphorus.
Modern Meyhane (Modern Turkish taverns)
We have mentioned our "tavern" culture a lot in our other articles. However, with the change of the era, the new generation began to look for alternatives. Like now, this generation is more attracted to night clubs now rather than simple dance shows. In this case, the taverns were not enough. Just eating, listening to Turkish music, and going out started to cause the places to find fewer customers. Therefore, DJ booths were added to the classical Turkish tavern culture. Get ready to get up from the aniseed tables and dance, with the sound gradually increasing towards the night hours. The new generation and middle-aged generation started to love this form of entertainment.
Being in Istanbul means loving the city and not being able to stand here in the summer. But we work, we miss swimming, we love the sand and the sun, but we also need to go home. So then we're heading north of the city! Suma Beach is one of the perfect entertainment venues in summer. Because sand, sun, night, dance, DJ everything is here. If you follow Suma beach event days, you may even come across famous DJs. Working Istanbulites love the city more with Suma beach.

It wasn't long before night clubs began to stabilize. Therefore, we have recommended reliable places whenever you go, continuously owned by the same people we trust. So do not miss the chance to explore beautiful Istanbul with us.
