360 Istanbul East, the Asian-side branch of the famous 360 Istanbul club, has now opened in the Double Tree by Hilton, located in the upscale Moda neighborhood.
Like its Beyoğlu counterpart, 360 East benefits from a truly spectacular panoramic view of the city, stretching from the Princes Islands on the Marmara Sea to the Bosphorus Strait. Designed by architect Ufuk Alparslan, 360 East is a modern and stylish club and restaurant where you can enjoy Turkish cuisine with an international twist or a poolside cocktail—yes, there’s a pool, and it’s not just for show!
Although 360 East carries almost the same concept as 360 Istanbul in Beyoğlu, there are some minimal changes to the menu, such as the Iceberg cocktail (made with Malibu, Batida Coco, Blue Curacao, and coconut milk) and Cranberry Royal (made with champagne, cranberry juice, and cranberry bits). Their new fruity additions sound fresh and tasty, but their classic signature cocktail called 360 is particularly good. As you sip this citrusy cocktail, you can truly taste the strawberry, cinnamon, and shavings of lemon and orange. We suggest you sample all, and maybe the Cucumber Margarita, too, if you don’t mind mixing it up.
With concerts and DJs lined up throughout the summer, 360 East is sure to quickly become one of the trendiest nightlife spots on the Asian side. Their first live performance is due to take place on July 15 with Natalie Peris, one of the most successful electronic vocalists of Croatia. After embarking on a musical journey as a lead singer in various jazz bands, Peris switched to electronic music, releasing songs like “Dance With You,” “Disco Belle,” and “Not Enough.”
Whether you live on the Asian Side or the European Side, we suggest you check out 360 East and see Istanbul from a completely different angle!
Peris will be at 360 East on July 15-16 and July 22-23. For a sneak peek, click here.
