here is the answer for: ...where can I dance all night long ?

A new and more detailled page now on

The night life of Bodrum is something very special.
Even Turks will rank Bodrum after Istanbul as number 2.
Bodrum probably has more bars per area than other places in Turkey, appealing to all tastes. Among them are intimate seaside cafes with magnificent views of the illuminated castle.

Bodrum by night


Lets start our bar and disco walk right underneath the impressive walls of the castle - on Iskele Meydani, the place just on the harbor side where are many cafes, just next to the tourism office.

Here starts Dr. Alim Bey street, later it leads to Cumhuriyet street, but both together are all over Bodrum known as Barstreet. This one mile long street runs parallel with the sea, so all the bars and restaurants on your right side offer a sitting area on the beach with the scenic view of the castle.

McDonalds fast food will be the first on the left side.

Then next to it is
VELI BAR, with frequently live music. This one is probably the oldest bar in town.

Nestled among boutiques with good quality textiles you'll see
YETTIGARI and then a bit further on HADIGARI BAR & RESTAURANT

Before you come to an open place, known as PIDE Place you will pass
M&M DANCING, this is a very recommendable disco of high quality standard in sound system and decoration

  Now you have reached a little square, in precise words the Hilmi Uran Meydani, or in short: the Pide place, because you find a bunch of shops selling snacks like the Turkish Pizza, the Pide. Take a rest here.

On the right then you'll see a stone house facade with the name
FORA BAR. It is again one of these nice discos situated on the Beach offering a marvellous view of the sea and castle.

Now you enter straight away the extension of this barstreet, the Cumhuriyet Caddesi. If you come in high season you'll find it difficult to walk on this narrow and crowded street.

Many shops and boutiqes sell all kinds of goods and among them are the restaurants and bars. And don't forget - you are still parallel with the sea.

By now you have reached another opening, called Azmakbasi, but the Cumhuriyt caddesi carries on.

Here on right you find
FASIL CAFE RASIT, an upstairs bar with authentic Turkish music and belly dance. The program start around 11 PM.

  After Azmakbasi you'll have the open sea on your right side and many bars and inviting restaurants to your left-

your eyes will be attracted by a building in nearly Victorian style
THE WHITE HOUSE BAR offering live music.

A bit further on is
SULTANS BEACH H0USE, owned by friendly Erdogan Danaci.

More discos and bars follow and still on your right side is the open Aegean sea. A nice little cafe called
MAVI BAR - the blue bar invites you for a drink while you can have a look at their galleries

From here you walk about 50 meters along the little ascending street to one of the nicest discos in the world, the
HALIKARNASS DISCO. They really don't need an advert - it is so wellknown. We even will not get paid by them, but a page like this would be incomplete without this wonderful place
