Travel The Halikarnas Nightclub

Bodrum has grown from the fishing village it once was into one of the most stunning deluxe resort destinations in the world. It has even donned the name: “the new St. Tropez”. Right in the very centre of town is Halikarnas, one of the world’s most famous open air nightclubs, one which impresses even the most exacting of clients with its intriguing interior design and exceptional light and sound installations. Halikarnas was opened in 1979 and to this day remains one of the most visited clubs on earth with a host of fans that has included celebrities such as Eve Saint Laurent, Valentino, the Rothschilds, and Princess Margaret. The reconstruction of the VIP zone, halls, and restaurant has been carried out by a team which has worked behind the scenes at some of the world’s biggest, most famous concerts and shows. A six-level sound proof system has been set up at the club which works to retain up to 90% of the noise. Both the club’s restaurant, “The Secret Garden”, and the VIP zone, which are in a separate part of the complex, were created by designer Jade Jagger. The restaurant is particularly striking at

first glance with the floor’s unique design that includes geometric slates in keeping with the traditional Turkish style. The huge throne hall, decorated in gold and characterised by its bespoke Turkish chandelier, is at the back end of the restaurant and reserved for their most honoured guests. The owner of Halikarnas, Süleyman Demir, has strived to maintain an association between the club and the ancient amphitheatre: the design is dominated by the colour white whilst hints of yellow and silver permeate through the reflections of Bodrum’s night sky. The club is brilliantly equipped for running dance, aquatic, and light shows thanks to the large number of projectors and lasers. Halikarnas also offers its fair share of Asia’s underground atmosphere in the form of the “Dragon Bar”. Halikarnas is open 24/7 and every visit made offers guests the chance to collect some unforgettable memories and impressions. www.halikarnas.com.tr
