    “Enjoyable venue. Great gay dance club in Istanbul, well located too. Was there in October. Packed Friday/Saturday nights. Sunday, being Halloween also brought in the crowds. Hot Turkish guys. Cute bartenders. Friendly, welcoming vibes. The gogo dancers ..... aaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Hot as, full bodied studs dancing in their underwear, one wilder and hotter than the other! Boner time! The belly dancer was exquisite too. Loved the place!“

    Giriş personelleri sorunlu

    “You can't enter directly at the entrance, it says there is no appointment, what will happen, as if we will have fun inside.“

  3. A Ames
    Not recommended

    “Not Recommended.
    Very bad service of the staff will burn the prices to tourists.“

  4. F Fran
    A must visit

    “I'm from Madrid and had a lot of fun there. There is a good mix of guys (age and type). I paid 35 lira for the entrance (drink included) and 5 for the wardrobe. I recommend to visit the place. Some locals I was talking to on Grindr were not recommending it, as they did like other posh places (I also went to). Guys at the club were friendly and many of them handsome (specially if u like beards). Get rid of prejudices and go to Tekyon ;) I will come back on my next trip.“

    “L'endroit incontournable et convivial. Les clients sont sympa et directs. Le prix d'une boisson son excessive 7€, dommage. Faire attention à Escort boys, masseur et rent boys, notamment si vous est un daddy qui viens d'occident. C'est eux qui vous approchent en premier.“

    Great experience

    “I've just returned from Istanbul and I think the problem you may have experienced is that regulars or locals don't get charged entry. I think this is fair enough as they are keeping the club alive. With this entry price you get a drink.
    Staff are as friendly as any staff in any bar/club internationally.“

    Unfriendly staff

    “Very bad unfriendly staff they should right the rolls in the internet before we come we really don't know what's wrong“

    Merhaba Tekyon

    “This place was GREAT! I went my first night out in Istanbul. It was a Sunday around midnight. They charged 22lira ($8usd). Well worth it. The place was packed with beautiful Turks, Kurds, foreigners, twinks, muscle boys with big beards, queens, you name it, they were there. And me, a big black bear Haha! I took pictures with so many guys, drank like a fish (the bartenders were very generous) and danced like a maniac. Fun! Fun! Fun!“

    Not nice customer service

    “As usual almost anywhere in Turkey, the way they treat customers is not the most friendly. I went on a Friday night, around 11:30pm. There were no entry charges. Because the club was still empty, I decided to go for a walk and come back later. When I returned after 1 hour, the door guy wanted to charge me 22 liras. I saw other people getting in without paying so I asked why I had to pay. He was really rude and said if you don't want to pay go away. Definitely not a nice experience. The whole gay night in Istanbul is actually not a nice experience, if you want to party Istanbul is NOT the place to be.“

      Terrible experience

      “Same here. Friday night was asked for a charge. Maybe because u don't look gay externally.“

    • G George
      Terrible experience

      “Very bad unfriendly staff. Refused to let me in on Friday because I didn't look gay from outside.“

    Crowded, loud and fun. A must visit.

    “This place was recommended by a local friend, so I thought I'd check it out. A must visit if you're up for partying in Istanbul. Very diverse crowd - bears, twinks, jocks, trannies, women - you name it. Loud music (and not really my cup of tea), but enjoyed the fun atmosphere, great dancers and friendly crowd.“

  11. J James

    “Be careful. Not very safe to pick up someone.“
