Night life in Istanbul

Some people might think that because of the religion they will not find certain kind of amusement on the city. That is not truth. Those people are right when they think about religious matter, but anyway those very religious people are not part of the night life in Istanbul and they have their own kind of amusement that we also talk about here (Tea gardens).

Istanbul by Night

Islam forbids consumption of alcohol, but you can find beer, wine and a special national alcoholic drink called Raki (*same as Uzo for the Greek, Arak for the Arabs - it is a 35C alcohol, which is deluded with water turning from transparent into a white drink. If you enjoy alcohol try it ! ).

I remind you Turkey is a laic country were religion and government do not walk together like some other Arabic countries. Turkish people enjoy eating, drinking and dancing. Turkish cuisine is very rich and millennial. Over the weekend you will see full bars and tea gardens with young and mature, women and man enjoying their tea, coffee or also beer and Raki.

Nights can be long and enjoyable in Istanbul. You just need to find out the right place that matches your wishes. Here we will recommend some places where that you can visit at night in Istanbul:
