Hg2 : The Hedonist

Jolly Joker Balans

Balo Sokak is party-central, slap-bang in the middle of barmy, boisterous Asmalimescit. But unlike many sweaty locales in this street, Jolly Joker takes its music policy a wee bit more seriously with a roster of Turkish groups and the odd international band with music ranging from rock and indie to fiery traditional folk. From Thursday to Sunday expect riotous – or tear-jerking if it’s folk-time – ensembles with crashing guitars and soaring vocals cheered on by an up-for-it crowd. DJs fill in the gaps on other nights – when the atmosphere is, as ever, more student bop than poser’s paradise.
