Nardis is the jazz club of the city with its tiny stage and bricks walls emanating New Orleans vibes. If you looking for a modest but classy jazz bar in Istanbul, Nardis is there for you right around the corner after Galata Tower.
The club is owned and run by a musician family. You can listen to all interpretations of jazz in Nardis including classic, modern, fusion, mainstream and ethnic, as well as solo artists performing. The club is unique in that it provides a stage for concerts in a club atmosphere, with brick walls and a tiny stage right next to the tables.
They have a very dense schedule with quite a good selection of jazz bands. You can catch a gig every night of the week except Sundays.
I recommend you make a reservation before you go. And keep your voice down during the performances, because the staff is sensitive about the silence of the crowd.
