Embrace the energy at Chico's

This energetic venue is buzzing from dusk until dawn with regular live entertainment and Turkish themed nights complete with belly dancing. Sip on fruity cocktails made by the welcoming bar staff who will have you up on your feet and strutting your stuff in no time.

Chill out at The Beach House Cafe

With live DJs both day and night, this beautifully presented cafe is located right in the centre of Gumbet cove on the beachfront, offering sweeping sea views. Relax outside in candlelight with a Mojito Extreme while the DJs spin chilled-out house music or head inside to the lounge area and try some Turkish shisha.

Take to the stage at Roy's Place

This popular beachside watering hole is open until 3am, offering sea views and karaoke every night. There’s a big selection of songs, so whether you fancy an 80s power ballad or strutting your stuff to the likes of Beyonce, you’re sure to find one of your favourites.

Get sophisticated at Club Posh

As the largest club in Gumbet, this is the place to head if you’re after good music in a stylish venue. A little pricier than many of its neighbours, you’ll find chic balconies, extravagant chandeliers and live DJ sets. The venue is open from 6pm to 5am – arrive early to avoid queuing to get in.

Take your pick at Mystery bar

This three-part venue has a hidden karaoke bar in the basement, a main bar at ground level and a nightclub next door. Whichever room you decide to visit you’ll be met with staff who are just as good at dancing and DJ-ing as they are at making cocktails.

Find your inner exhibitionist at Central Bar

Easy to spot thanks to its brightly-coloured neon sign out front, Central Bar is one of the most popular and lively venues in Gumbet. If you don’t fancy joining in with the dancing on the bar, strut your stuff on the small dance floor or opt for table service and sit outside, enjoying the pyrotechnics and antics from afar.

Rock out at Outback Bar

At the top end of Bar Street you’ll find this Aussie-themed surf bar. It pumps out a refreshing mix of rock and indie music compared to its brightly-lit neon neighbours. Here you can sip on a Surfer’s Paradise cocktail before jumping on the beer pong table and making a bunch of new friends.

Best foam parties at A Lora Beach Club

A Lora Beach club turns into a lively nightclub as the sun goes down, with daily foam parties starting the party. The open-air beach venue boasts pumping foam cannons with hot tubs at the ready so you’re squeaky clean before carrying on until the small hours at this vibrant spot.

Turkish chic at Club Mood

Head to Club Mood if you’re looking for a stylish hangout playing contemporary beats on your Bodrum holiday. This club doesn’t only offer a buzzing atmosphere, but it also gives stunning views of Bitez bay. With its chic white interior and neon cube walls, chill out to the tune of the Turkish music scene’s latest offerings.

Showtime at Atlantis Bar

This fantastic bar puts fun and entertainment at the top of its list of priorities. Every night the staff put on a brilliant performance from dance routines to fashion shows. They guarantee to make you laugh until you cry while you sip on delicious cocktails.
