Istanbul is world famous for non-stop nightlife. Don't think that because 95% of Turks are Muslim that nobody's drinking, on the contrary, bars outnumber mosques in Istanbul. Turkey is a laic country and Turkish people enjoy eating, drinking and dancing. Animated nightlife of Istanbul offers thousands of options such as all kinds of bars, night clubs, discos, restaurants, live music venues, dance clubs, tea gardens, hookah pipe cafes and a variety of pubs all over the city. It only remains for you to choose among these many alternatives. Ortakoy, Taksim-Beyoglu, Levent, Nisantasi, Etiler on the European side and Kadikoy, Bagdat Street on the Asian side are the most popular areas for night life.

Definitely you will be amazed at how fast time flies. Normally, the drinking age is 18 years but identity cards are rarely checked.
