The crowd was great, the drinks well priced, and the MUSIC... oh, the music! Everything from Turkish dance, salsa, electronica, folk music, 90's hip hop. Lots of artists and students, and fun as hell. Highly recommended!

Wonderful music. Absolutely fantastic. This place has a great vibe. Looks like a little hole in the wall, has a great view of the city and has a fully rocking dance floor that lasts late into the night. Perfection.

Excellent music! I was there on a Saturday, and the DJ had a great repetoir, a mix of everything you can dance to!

A good time, no entry fee, and cheap beer.

But it is difficult to find, with only a small sign downstairs, and you have to walk up to the fifth floor before you find it. Just look for the Odda hotel, it is right next to it :)
