“Good music, nice time”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

The music in Babylon was great. It is one of the best places that you can listen world quality music. Staff is quite professional and kind. The club itself a bit small. This is why depending on occasion, it might be quite crowded.

“Enthusiastic audience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went to see and hear the gig of Ibrahim Maalouf. The place was pretty small but well planned. It was crowded but almost all of the audience also on the balcony could see the stage properly. The atmosphere was incredible. The audience were real fans and could sing most of Maalouf's melodies. Never heard that happen in a jazz club, and I've been to many.

“Closed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Bar is not open on saturdays?! friendly staff (who were not present of course). This last sentence is only to fill the 100character requirement mark, this bar is closed so I have nothing else to say: go to the Balkon rooftop bar in the same street!

“Small but fun fun fun”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I went to see FM Belfast here a few months ago and boy, what that a fun night!
I don't want to go in to details but Babylon is fun place with a lot of regulars that are young and fun. I definitely recommend it to all the music and nightlife lovers who happen to look for good times in Istanbul. 5 stars.
