Hey fellas, I'll be visiting Istanbul for the first time this coming summer. I was just wondering if anyone knew of some "can't miss" clubs/bars I sshould check out. As far as the landmarks/sites, I pretty much know what I want to see. I've also been searching for a hotel to book, but there are so many options and sometimes a picture doesn't speak a 1000 words. The pictures I see make every hotel look like wonderland. The factor that I can't quantify into my decision is the area where the hotel is located. I don't want to stay at a nice hotel if the area it's in is crappy. Anyway, any suggestions of what I can look into would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
