Bursa Nightlife, Turkey

Bursa is gearing up for the 2018 Winter Olympics, so you can expect this list to have many additions in the coming years.

Some of the night life in Bursa is to be found in the many hotels located there. Nearly all of them have restaurants and bars in their lobbies that are open to non guests. Of these, two are standouts. The Mimosa Restaurant and Yasmin Bar in the Central Hotel Bursa which offer fine food and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, coupled with lovely mountain views. The food choices are international and the menu extensive. The bar is fully stocked and a congenial atmosphere for a conversation or informal business meeting.

Another upscale outing is to the Mimarun Kasrı Café, which is located in a perfectly restored house and charming walled garden. Live music and entertainment are offered almost nightly but there is a special event on Wednesday nights when Turkish Art Music is scheduled. These traditional, often quite poignant songs are accompanied by the oud, an ancient Turkish instrument and violin.

  Other music venues throughout the week include acoustic guitar and poetry readings. You will find the Si Pub on the Gazi Cad; more relaxed and it has a big screen for watching soccer games, the national passion. It is open daily to the early morning hours with plenty of libations and light snacks on the menu. The restaurants in Bursa demonstrate the cosmopolitan culture, cultural influences and local products from the region.

 One restaurant that proudly offers freshly caught fish from the Tirilye Lake is named Sekerev. It has a large terrace from which to enjoy the view on warm evenings. The restaurant is located about 20 minutes from Bursa and offers freshly caught local fish in a lovely setting. The fish is prepared in a number of different ways to your request. Back in town, the Krokodil restaurant is an eatery with international favorites, and a bar and disco complex. The bistro style restaurant offers Italian fare, with good pastas, pizza and antipasti. The disco is open nightly and has a DJ and crowded dance floor on most evenings.

The Anadolu Lezzet Dunyas Restaurant has a pleasant ambiance in the indoor restaurant and offers outdoor dining in the garden, which is completed with a children’s play area. The specialties here are grilled and roasted meat, poultry and fish, not to mention rich desserts.

The Cafe Flor is situated in several pretty rooms above a stone garden and it is a favorite local place for cappuccino and any other coffee specialty you desire, accompanied by a selections of mostly local specialty cakes.  They also serve salads and sandwiches and remain open until 9 pm.
