Hg2 : The Hedonist


A music club that prides itself on steering clear of mainstream music, Dogzstar hosts performers that run the whole gamut – from experimental jazz-playing art collective to Turkish ska group to Swiss indie band. Reggae and dub are perennial mainstays, however, and it’s this rocksteady beat that drifts across the neighbouring alfresco bars and cafés most evenings. Tiny, crowded, noisy and fun, Dogzstar is tucked away on a cosy side street that’s lined with cafés and restaurants and found off Istiklal. The shows are hit-and-miss, but the vibe is friendly and refreshingly unpretentious. Dress-down and leave the credit card at home.
