Already have you visited the wonders of the city? The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Prince’s Islands, the Museum of modern art, la Cisterna, already have been in all markets? Grand Bazaar, the Spice Bazaar, flea markets, then is the best time to go one step further and discover the nightlife of the city. A Mediterranean touch, a European metropolis, a decadent air, Istanbul has everything and your nightlife has much to offer. Here we present some examples of bars and venues that are really worth. Sooner or later acabareis in the famous shopping street? stiklal Caddesi, where you can participate in rounds of bars. If you want to fill the stomach first on the outskirts you will find different jobs of food (there are many posts in which they sold kebabs and doners in the Taksim Square).

Bambiland is an institution; What began as a small stand of food has become a famous chain. It is open 24 hours and is very popular among locals and tourists. Do is also the bar-restaurant 5.Kat in OS? anc? Sokak No. 7 (Cigangir), near the Taksim Square. This ancient five-storey building has a rooftop terrace from where you can see beautiful views of the Bosphorus.

Those who prefer electronics can go to Dirty (Erol Dernek Sokak No. 11), with a very retro style, or Pixie (Tosbaga Sokak No. 12) If you want a bit of everything. For live music is the Babylon (? ehbender Sokak No. 3), known throughout the city for its concerts of jazz. In this local concerts and even some festivals, are held so it is best to buy tickets in advance. For a bit of punk, indie and other styles based on guitar, Peyote (Kameriye Sokak No. 4) is the perfect venue. It has been a meeting point for many years and has even been compared by critics to premises of the same style in New York and London.
