Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Istanbul

Indigo
Foodies flock in their droves to Indigo Restaurant with a reservations book that's always fit-to-bursting with high-profile names...
NuBlu East
A more sophisticated music policy - think groove reggae and disco rather than cheesy euro-pop - sets NuBlue East apart from its Kurucesme neighbours.
Anjelique
One of the elite super-clubs located in fashionable Kurucesme, Anjelique's fabulous Bosphorus views  are just the start of the club's charms. Dress up to blend in with the Turkish glamorati.
Nu Club
With a great fusion restaurant on the ground floor, panoramic rooftop bar and basement club, NuPera can keep you occupied for the whole evening.
Sortie
When it comes to glittering, conspicuous consumption, Istanbul's super-clubs in Kurucesme rival St Tropez, albeit with a less international clientele. Look like a model or millionaire to ensure entry.
2C Club Inn
Located near the unlovely Taksim square, 2C offers a taste of the down and dirty side of Istanbul nightlife. With banging techno and house tunes, a night here is unashamedly good fun.
Riddim
If the hip hop vibe sets your pulse racing, then run - don't walk, all the way to Riddim.
Sapphire Bosphorus
Large? Chic? Good looking crowd? If that sounds familiar, it's because Sapphire Bosphorus is virtually interchangeable with Kurucesme's other clubs.
Karga
Under the radar yet full of originality, Karga's subversive yet creative atmosphere is just the thing for an art-inspired, laid-back crowd. 
Crystal
A good deal more casual than neighbours Reina and Anjelique, Crystal's clientele are more focused on the music than each other. Wander over here later and be prepared to dance.
Reina
To truly experience Reina in all its glory, arrive by yacht thus bypassing the queues and instantly elevating yourself to membership of the elite. Just remember to leave the deckshoes at home.
