Korfez Bar: Local Bar, Lively Atmosphere
Korfez Bar is a gem of a place hidden slightly back from the main shopping throughfare in Bodrum. The unique thing about this bar is the music - predominantly rock but also others, and the customers who are mostly young Turkish people enjoying a night out. It looks a bit intimidating when you first arrive as the side street is so full of people who have spilled out from the bar but don't be put off.
This bar is always busy and getting to the bar can be hard work, well worth the effort however. Drinks are priced as in other bars and are mostly beer and spirits with a small cocktail menu, it is a rock bar after all!!
Dress Code: No dress code
Jimmy's Bar: Friendly Bar!
Jimmy's bar is on one of the main roads towards Gumbet. It is a lovely place to start the evening and can get quite busy quite quickly. We always found it a handy rest point between the hotels in the upper part of town and Bodrum itself.
They have satellite television, a good range of drinks and also serve food late into the evening (they have a restaurant about 3 doors away), the food on offer is "traditional" UK fast food type stuff such as burgers, chips and they also do a Sunday Lunch. The bar has seating outside, plays a range of popular music, shows all the UK football matches and other sporting events. The bar does Karaoke and the staff join in too (usually quite badly!!). Jimmy's has a taxi rank next door should you decide against the hills :-)
The staff are very, very friendly but do shout at you to try and entice you in to join them. This is the Turkish way however and the friendly banter should be taken as just that.
A round of drinks is very cheap too.

Ship Ahoy: Best club in Turkbuku
It's a restaurant/beach club by day and everybody just goes there at around 11:30 at night. A great place to be with friends and mingle. Dinner is also served right on the water at your desired table if you book early enough. DJ Metin has been there since my first time there in 2003 and again rocked the 'ship' this past summer of 2006. I love the music (combo of house, Euro dance, some retro (he plays a Gloria Gaynor tune every now and again for some patrons) and of course, top Turkish pop songs of the summer. I love the place and its energy. It is bigger and better since 2004 and have increased their dining space and added another huge bar on the deck. Waiters bring you drinks anywhere you are so that's very handy too. Drink are pricey though at 20YTL for a cocktail. That's US$16!
My friends and I love it that DJ Metin plays our favorite songs.

De Ja Vue: Nightlife
THE best nightclub in town. De Ja Vue is full of friendly staff. The owners are super nice and make for a great atmos. The music is bril'.....dancing a plenty (even on the bar!!)
There is a chilled room above the club with comfy sofas etc next to big windows looking out to the beach and the outside drinkers.
This club is not pretentious, very relaxed and a lot of fun.
Great for dancing the night away, then watching the sun come up 'chillin' before you go home in the morning.
Dress Code: Anything goes....no-one there will judge you.
Deja Vu Bar/Club: Great for socialising, drinking and dancing!
This is located on bar street next to Red Lion and overlooking the sea (used to be Orange Club) still same people but a different name.
I have been to Bodrum twice and love coming here! Has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and the music is great. Its like a bar/club with seating mostly outside where you can watch people passing by. Some seating inside also. Then you have the dancefloor towards the back. It has a great sound system for a place of it's size and you will want to dance until you drop!
Starts to get busy at 1am and stays open until 5am.
Go to Bodrum and go there!
Dress Code: Don't think there is a dress code??
Turkey has a very different atmosphere and culture than England and its a real joy just to walk around the streets of Bodrum on a warm summer night, the aroma of the food and every shop trying to sell you something is quite specialRelated to:

Night Club Bodrum (Catamaran): Party in the Middle of the Sea
This is one of the coolest experiences you can have in Bodrum. You board this (boat)club before 1 ' o clock and then it departs into the sea. The music is great, very good DJ and sometimes even well known international DJ's. The floor is made of glass so you can see the sea underneath you which is also very nice. Beautiful people go to this club, a lot of tourists but also a lot of Turks come here. The club is a the worlds biggest and only catamaran club with a capacity for 5000 people. If you want to get off board earlier thats also possible since you can take small pendel boats to the coast again.
Dress Code: No specifik dresscode, but dress nice so you dont look very different from the rest ;)

KUBA Bar: Number 2
