the club is near 2nd beach in what looks like a ruined castle. there are shops on the complex.
once inside there are terraces and a large dance floor, the whole place is open air and great fun. like any club the men can get a bit touchy feely, but the security is great, to get in you need to go through an airport like scanner and men are body searched, seems extreme but it makes you feel safer.
drinks aren't cheap (never are in clubs) about 5ytl for local drinks or 10ytl for brand names. local drinks worked for me!!!!
the music is a mix of ours and theirs but you can dance to both! the weirdest thing is that the turks sit down a lot of the time in the club, which we dont really do at home, they aer just more laid back than us
Dress Code: there didn't seem to be a dress code, but i would say smart casual, same as anywhere else.
The Parasol Bar is almost right beside the very noisy swan Bar in Dolphin Square. It's a wonderful place and, whilst it doesn't look too busy, don't let this put you off. It recently moved from the other side of Altinkum, as the owners felt they needed bigger premises. Because of this, the customers who came in previous years haven't yet found it again, hence its quiet appearance.
So, where do I start? The bar has inside and outside tables. The seats are very comfy, as they have loads of cushions. Dancing carries on from about 9 at night right through to 3 AM (closing time) The staff are extremely friendly and wil encourage you to get involved in the dancing They'll even teach you the set folk dances so that you can fully participate. The staff make a real effort to get to know you personally, and wil go out of their way to make your time with them an enjoyable one. They're also very good with children When I returned to Altinkum this year, it was with a family group of 12. We had 2 kids with us and, at night when they fell asleep, they were given blankets and sofas to cuddle up on while the adults carried on with their night out. The staff kept an eye on the children, and were extremely attentive. When awake, they encouraged the kids to dance with them, gave them balloons, and generally kept them entertained. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
It's a family run business, and has a bus service which will pick you up from your hotel, and then, when you're too drunk to walk, will drop you back off there. The owner's brother runs the bus, and owns the Penguin Restaurant on 3rd beach. It, again, is an amazing place to go to (please see my tip under Altinkum Restaurants for further information).Both Penguin and Parasol are well worth a visit.
Dress Code: no specific dress code, but most folks come in 'going out' clothes. Guys are fine in jeans.
We had a few good nights in this place during a holiday to Altinkum. Food is very very good and staff are very welcoming. Our party of 10 were always made very welcome and even when the place was packed the staff always rearranged furniture to cater for us. Drinks are rerasonable and the mucis is good also - a great variety. There is a pool table and a huge tv screen whci will show all football matches live next year.
bar is open all winter!!!!!!!
I saw detailks about this bar on the website and I had to write and say that we too had a good few good nights out in here! The food was very very good, and the drinks were very very good too! Great variety of music was played. Our party of 10 people were always made very welcome and staff were happy to rearrange furniture in the bar to make space for us - even when the p[lace was packed full. There is a pool table and a huge tv screen which i'm told will be showing all football matches liven ext year - great or what!
Decoration is very nice too
This is a terrific bar/Restaurant - a bit of the beaten track but well worth a visit or two during your trip to Altinkum. The food is first class and very reasonably priced. The service is great and the staff are very friendly - nothing is a problem to them.
Toilet facilities are exeptional.
