3) ArafAraf is one of the most visited clubs in Istanbul, mainly due to the cheap beer. Any tourist willing to have a taste of the local nightlife may spend some hours here to get a general picture. However if you're not up to challenging yourself with experiencing the nightlife habits of local young people to the fullest, it may be better to come on Tuesdays-Wednesdays.

6) Büyük Londra Oteli BarBüyük Londra Oteli Bar is a must see in Istanbul. The interior is quite astonishing - the decors are 100-years old and the drinks are as strong as they used to be back then. Some of the prices are as pumped-up as the drinks, but you actually do get value for your money.
