Are you a fan of local bars ? Do you like enjoying the city like a local would do ? Do you prefer skipping big crowds and hanging out in exclusive garden bars and cocktail lounges ? If yes, then this is the night out experience for you ! We will meet at Arnavutkoy and enjoy our first drinks at a garden speakeasy while getting to know each other From there we can visit the most popular and exclusive cocktail bar of area and enjoy the music while dancing a bit with a crowd that I'm sure you would find respectful and fun at the same time. Since the weather is always nice, we can take a taxi up the hills to a hidden and super exclusive garden lounge where they don't allow people who are younger than 25. While having our drinks at garden lounges and cocktail bars, we will have the time to get to know each other better and speak about Istanbul, local life and Turkish culture. This experience is not a conventional pub crawl experience in which people visit many bars in a small area. It’s more like a introductory night out to experience Istanbul’s signature and exclusive night life landmarks and cocktail scene in an alternative and premium area. I personally prefer smaller groups since it makes the conversation much better, which in my opinion is one of the most important aspects of the experience We can end the night around any area of your choosing say our goodbyes :)
Hello all, I am Onur. I have been living in Istanbul for the last decade, mostly around Besiktas area. I am 27 years old. After graduating from Bogazici University with the concentration on Tourism, I’ve been working for an international company. I thought it’s time to be the voice of Istanbul for all visitors wanting to meet the local vibe and hang out in most premium and off the radar places.

Due to Turkey's nightlife culture, groups of only boys might get denied entry to many places. If our night out group is only boys, you should expect changes in the route.
