Nardis Jazz Club
Nardis in Galata is one of the oldest and best-known jazz clubs in the city (or maybe even the only one) where both Turkish and foreign musicians take the stage. Names such as Önder Focan & Kağan Yıldız & Ferit Odman Trio, Ece Göksü Quartet, Burak Bedikyan Trio, Hacettepe Jazz Band, Los Amigos de Herman and Volkan Polat Quartet took their places in their upcoming programs. You can follow all their activities here. We recommend that you buy your tickets in advance (especially if the performance you want to go to falls on the weekend).
If you wake up on a Sunday morning and realize that you have no plans for that day, get up and head for Tamirane. Tamirane hosts jazz performances called Morning Jazz Sessions every Sunday at 15:00. In the last month, names such as Bora Çeliker Trio, Ezgi Aktan and Jazz Matiz took the stage. You can follow their upcoming events here.
Noasis Jazz Club
One of the Asian Sides, this is a small and friendly place that is even worth coming from the European Side. Noasis entered the season with names such as Pınar Argin Trio, Bilal Karaman Swing Band, Random Quintet, Evrencan Gündüz Quintet.
