Istanbul's first club—doors opened in 1999—is still going strong, albeit in a new venue: Bomontiada, the bar-restaurant-club complex housed in the recently opened refurbished Bomonti Beer Factory. Depending on when you're in town, you may be treated to Turkish or international bands and performers of music ranging from jazz—the club plays host to the annual AKBank Jazz Festival—Sufi music, psychedelic revival, or funk.
