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.

Large? Its pretty small. More than 6 euro's for a beer and more than 10 euro's for a wodka is way too much. The place is alright and the music very is danceable, too bad Turkish guys are too afraid to really get loose. They are so distant, which is a big shame if you are from Western-Europe. We had a blast but we were sort of the only ones on this busy Saturday. BTW, whats with all the employees who stand on every corner???

HORRIBLE place! I do NOT recommend for the following reasons:
1.) Rude to Tourist
2.) OVERLY priced. I.e., 23 TL for a can of juice? Yes!
3.) The short disgusting man at the front (door) attempting to extort money from the Tourist at the entrance point attempts to hustle between 22 TL and 23 TL for entrance fee. For what? To listen to horrible music, disgusting dance floor, sweaty smelly men, smoke everywhere, everywhere smoke, bathroom not accessible because of drugs in the stalls, or who knows what they are doing on the toilet except using it for the purpose intended. When I was there the 1st x some guy was thrown out for stealing some tourist's wallet. NO! I do NOT recommend this place at all. It is not worth it; believe me.
