Ortakoy is the premier entertainment precinct to head to if you’re looking for the uber chic that oozes from the well-stocked bars and pumping dance floors. Anjelique, right on the Bosporus by the first bridge, is one such swanky club that gets jam-packed on the weekends with crowds of glamorous people. From the open-air terrace upstairs you can hang over the balcony, watch the lightshow of the Bosporus Bridge, and count the VIPs from luxury yachts entering the club below. A fine-dining menu is available, but most locals prefer Anjelique for its bar and club scene which, come midnight, takes over the venue.
