Nightlife info

Turkish nightlife is synonymous with music, culture and food.

Turkish nightlife has traditionally centred on meyhanes, similar to taverns, where an assortment of mezes (small plates or appetizers), often followed by a meal of fish, is consumed with rounds of raki (Turkish national drink), the aniseed-flavoured national spirit.

Still extremely popular with all ages, the meyhane is a social affair, where dining and drinking is often accompanied by live music played on traditional instruments.
