Neighborhood: Beyoğlu
Overview

This bar in Beyoglu is named after a mythical land situated between heaven and hell. But that is not why it is popular among international tourists who hang out here till the wee hours of the morning. The dance floor is almost always packed, thanks to the hip music played here. Entertainers include Turkish gypsy musician Selim Sesler, who performs on Tuesdays, and the Luxus band, which plays world music and "oriental blues" on Wednesdays. Furthermore, DJs dole out pop, salsa, hip hop, punk and folk music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. For details on upcoming performances, check the website.
