Hg2 : The Hedonist

Sugar Club Café

Down a small side street off Istiklal Caddesi is the Sugar Club Café, a tiny, unpretentious, contemporary spot, and one of the only openly gay daytime venues in the city. Serving a nice cup of coffee and food cooked up by owner-chef Murat Sögütlüoglu, Sugar Club Café is a welcoming spot for those seeking refuge from the crowds along Istiklal Caddesi. Fairly quiet during the day, it picks up in the evening with live music and people spilling out onto the little backstreet. The chatty staff encourage you to ask about the local gay nightlife, or feel free to ply them with any other questions you may have about gay life in Istanbul.
