I was in Istanbul in August 2015 and I stayed in Taksim. I truly enjoyed my time in Turkey for the first time. However when I tried to enter this club, the manager said to the security/bouncer at the door "siyah orospu izin vermeyin (do not let the black bitch in)" and walked inside the club. I asked the bouncer in English what did his boss said and he said to me "this is an Arab club only for Arab" I would give this place ZERO stars if possible.

Istanbul has got a highly cosmopolitan atmosphere. Around Taksim you will find restaurants on roof tops with an amazing view over the city and great food. There are several gay bars and clubs with great east and west combinations of style and music.istanbul gay guide
