  3. Thanks for the feedback! I am happy you enjoyed my guest post… and hope you make it to Istanbul one day :)

  4. I am istanbul guy and this article is totally wrong. hi-profiled people dont visit the clubs listed. those clubs are visited by just rich but impolite and black bearded bad looking people. i reccomend you high end jazz or latin clubs.

  5. I am from Turkey and recently moved to Canada. I enjoy being here and at the same time miss my city Istanbul. I read about your recommendations and the clubs you recommend are good choices I think. I would also say Sortie, 360, Cahide, Ulus 29, Al Jamal, Zelda Zonk and Nu Teras, these are restaurants, that turn into night club after, most of them with fantastic view.

  6. I’ve traveled to Istanbul 2 times and stayed nearly 20 days. Istanbul is a beautiful city, especially at night.
    I recommend Sess34, Chilai Bebek, Levendiz Greek Pub, Peyote and Cukka for a great Istanbul night.
