From night time cruises to strolling the harbors and eating ice-cream and general people watching (which is quite spectacular here, particularly in the summer months), to sit-down, quieter restaurant/bars catering to families to the absolutely pulsating dance clubs that stay open till dawn and are THE hot and trendy places to be seen...Bodrum rocks!!!!!
Dance the night away or enjoy quality drinks and conversation with friends and family. The choice is yours, from one end of the Bodrum Peninsula to the other, you can find what you are looking for. Turkish style nightlife, a good old fashioned Irish bar (in Turgutreis) or some cultural enlightenment in terms of live music, exhibitions and dance shows awaits you. Modern venues are plentiful however if you want a bit of tradition, you won't be disappointed either as backstreets are full of locals enjoying themselves. On the corners of most villages, you will see menfolk gathered to play games; they like a kind of 'tile game', looking similar to 'Dominoes' and 'Majong' , but both women and men will play Bridge deep into the evening in many restaurants catering to this. There is definitely an establishment that will provide the thrills and excitement you are looking for in the Bodrum nightlife scene. While the area is busy during the day, it is not an understatement, to say that on hot summer evenings, everywhere comes alive.
