Babylon Istanbul, Guide & Review
Event venue in Istanbul, Turkey. Founded by Pozitif in 1999 to host the very best of progressive good music in an emerging neighborhood in the heart of Istanbul, Babylon transformed the city’s music scene and became a hub for international and local music culture.
Babylon Istanbul opened its doors in 1999 designed as a multi-purpose performance center and is Turkey’s leading live music venue. Babylon presents a monthly program featuring eclectic selections from jazz to reggae, world music to electronica, Latin to Turkish vibes as well as indie pop and rock acts. Babylon is not only the first club in Istanbul, but is also the first venue having a professionally designed sound system which provides an extended aural experience.
With this marvelous placement of sound systems, you can enjoy the concerts in various music styles ranging from dub to rock, eclectic lounge to noise, electronica to world music. Its capacity is 450 standing and 300 seated. This is the best place where you can taste real world music in Istanbul all through the year. After so many years, it is still the Best club in Istanbul. The service is good and professional. The toilets are clean. The air conditioning is perfect. Sound and light systems are professional and good. Just check the program from their website and give it a chance. Don’t miss oldies but goldies parties.
The architecture of the concert hall with bricks is beautiful and gives the area a cozy atmosphere. It’s good to have a bar all along the back wall for the people who want to take a break and have a drink. This is an excellent place for food, drinks and dancing. They have a superb installation for live music, and an incredible program with groups from NYC to Lebanon. This is the entertainment mecca!!
