Although Bistro Bellman made its name as part of Alanya’s nightlife it is much more than just a disco. Before dark Bistro Bellman is open for dinner guests who get an amazing view to the harbour, Alanya castle and the Red Tower whilst choosing from a varied menu with Turkish, European and Latin dishes.
Later the bar opens and the music changes from quiet to more lively and modern.
Around midnight both style and mood change when the dance floor is full and young party people take over Bistro Bellman to have a good time.
Bistro Bellman is Alanya’s largest open-air restaurant/disco and on the two floors there are different dance floors, five bars and several terraces with soft sofas.
Once you have stepped into Bistro Bellman you don’t have to go anywhere else –with its superb food, good atmosphere in the bar and partying till the morning comes.
For restaurant customers a pick up service is offered. Opening Hours: 12.00 – 03.30
Dress Code: come as you are...
In Alanya a night out is not complete unless you have been to James Dean – here the choices are so numerous that you will definitely find something to suit every taste.
Major renovation at the beginning of 2004 means the disco is now ready for all party people with its 10 bars and 4 different dance floors and at least two kinds of music on the different floors.
The disco is arranged in small sections with their own character and you will also find plenty of opportunities to either dance or sit down and relax in comfortable sofas and seating areas. The music is controlled by experienced DJs from Alanya, Istanbul and Germany and the style is a mix of pop, r´n b, dance and lounge.
If you enjoy discos with a good international atmosphere then James Dean is THE place for you to be. Opening Hours: 20.00 – 04.00

A good place to meet people from other countries is the Robin Hood Dance Bar. Furthermore it has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere which is very inviting. The inspiration behind the decoration is Sherwood Forest and Robin Hood's merry and service minded men ensure that you receive excellent attention .
The layout and different floors give you the chance to either sit in the bar and enjoy its atmosphere or try your luck on the dance floor, where the music changes throughout the night – so, whatever your musical preference pop, dance, latin, r'n'b, hip hop or golden oldies, there will always be something for you.
In the summer Robin Hood also holds surprise parties with a variety of themes.
One of the few in Alanya, Robin Hood Dance Bar is open all year round.

The best place if you want to pay for overpriced drinks and go into tourist bars is in the harbour area - its all good fun!
There are numerous bars here most with music which are typical in any resort you go to.
However, if you want to party with the locals just go down the sidestreets away from the harbour area, all the locals are here, young and old, we were the only people in about 5 bars we went into who were not Turkish!!
Just watch the Raki - its firewater, but just has to be done!
Dress Code: Anything goes!!!!!!!
At night time central Alanya wakes up! Go there (the bazaar area) and buy as much as you can carry! The prices are low and they will get even lower if (when!) you bargain...
I didn't go to any nightclubs when I visited Alanya because shopping at night was so mucher funnier :-)
I normally don't like giving tips on nightlife, accomodations and restaurants because they can change so fast. Especially the nightlife, what's hot one year can be totally forgotten the next year.
But in Alanya there is one general tip. Head to the harbour!!! This is where all the action is. If you go here looking for nightlife you are in the right place! All the big discos are situated on the harbour, and in the bazarstreets above you can find lots of nice bars and restaurants. Many locals go to these places, while most of the tourists dance the night away at one of the discos in the harbour.
But at 3 o'clock it's finished. Close to the policestation in the harbour it used to be a place that was open longer, but it has been closed for long periods many times so I don't know if it is there anymore.
Another alternative for those who don't want to finish the party is to take the free busshuttle to Auditorium. A great and big place outside of the city. But it doesn't get busy before the other places close, so don't go here too early in the night. It also has a big swimmingpool so you can jump inside there if it gets too hot...
We usually went into town at night, had dinner somewhere and then went to a pub or something to have a drink. There are nice places where they have live music and we enjoyed that a lot. We are no disco people, we just like going out for a drink and talk a bit with friends.
there is great, good atmosphare, good people and many more.thats why I like there
Dress Code: For me jens required
If you go to Anlanya, you have to go to the Robin Hood and Bisto Bellman, cause there's a lot of good music for everybody, great atmosphere and nice crew for every request.
Dress Code: Whatever you want
