The music of NOW!
Why locals love it
Founded by the famous Turkish saxophonist İlhan Erşahin, Nublu is the new face of live music in Istanbul’s trendy party district. It blesses music-loving locals with all manner of cutting edge sounds, ranging from fusion and jazz to electronic and indie. Nublu İstanbul is the sister club of Nublu New York, also owned by Erşahin.
Why you should visit it
Enjoy a classy gourmet dinner at one of the many new restaurants in Karaköy before knocking on the doors of Nublu. Although it’s not all that big, it has several balconies where you can get a great bird’s-eye view of the stage.
If at all possible, come here when Erşahin's band is playing.
