As a city with an international heritage, you can expect a massive mix of things to do when you're out during your Antalya holidays – bars and clubs, parties and chill-out zones, and plenty of multicultural fun. Wherever you roam, you'll find it hard to beat the vibrancy and vitality of Antalya City when it comes to a great night out. Here are some of the places you might like to head for if you're heading off on cheap holidays to Turkey in search of some fun.
This is probably the city's most famous nightclub, and it's said that it's a place of two halves – the more easy-going evening crowd, followed by the party people who up the tempo after midnight. The club has a casual dress code and there's also a laid-back area where you can stare at the stars if the pounding rhythms get too much.
Throw on some fine threads for this one – at Ally's you're expected to dress to impress. Although it's not as loud and wild as Inferno, it's still a massively popular place, lit by neon and filled with partygoers. Expect to queue to get in on Friday or Saturday nights, but it'll be worth it.
The Jolly Joker has been described as the Hard Rock Cafe of Antalya, and with huge live-music performances, you're going to know why. The bar is illuminated by blue and pink neon for a retro vibe, but it's very much a modern space.
A stylish vintage-themed bar that's still a hit with the young crowd, the James Dean Disco takes its cues from the pop-culture legend – and what results is a vibrant, bustling club. A range of live music rounds off an active social calendar – and if you visit during the day, every drink is half price.
Located at the marina, this venue has an air of exclusivity about it, but don't let that put you off – it's a warm and welcoming place, with plenty of party atmosphere. All the fun takes place with some fantastic views of glistening water and city lights.
There isn't a city on the planet that doesn't have a good old-fashioned Irish pub, although that's really no bad thing. Those rustic touches and proud dark-wood beams give a welcome taste of home - and so will the bitters and draughts on tap.
There's some modern chic to be found here in this 24-hour establishment, from the sleek curved bars and plush chairs through to the courtyard with its big yin-yang mosaic. That said, it's not a pretentious place, and you'll have plenty of time to wind down after a hectic day of exploration and fun in the laid-back surroundings here.
Think of the stereotypical street-side cafe that opens into the late hours, with warm lights, soothing decor and smiling, gently conversing clientele. That's what you're going to find at Cello Cafe Bar, where cocktails and baklava converge in an evening of culture and relaxation.
Open plan and modern, there's plenty of space for the masses of guests you can expect to find in Havana Club. The drinks menu is extensive, and there's always a good selection of modern and classic beats to complement your evening. It's a popular place, so expect to find a good party atmosphere that's not too overpowering.
Decently central as far as location is concerned, Filika Cafe Bar draws in crowds of artists and creative types, who enjoy the alternative feel of the place. You can expect to find some home-cooked meals and fine wines here, together with a talkative atmosphere.
