Babylon: there’s no better place to see live, local music in Istanbul. Turkish electronica, Gypsy fusion, the odd German performance artist… Babylon has an eclectic range of music events all year around. The Babylon family also includes a record label, fashionable dining lounge, radio stream…you name it. Book tix ahead.

The other great place for live music and DJs in Istanbul is the anarchic Peyote bar, see their website for programming details.
