On first visit this cheeky Turkbuku nightspot reminded us of Le Yacht Club in Gustavia on St. Barts, complete with that slightly worn but ever-chic patina of passing celebs and blinged-out guests in Hermes ensembles sipping from their chilled magnums of champagne. Sure these bottles are the smaller kind and no fancier than Moet, but the crowd is just as posh and fast becoming the new summer hotspot.
In lieu of sleek white yachts the waterfront dock of Ship Ahoy is abuzz with guests arriving in rafts from their moored boats. By day the club offers a beach club vibe with delicious seafood eatery that boasts a quirky seafaring theme with Rose-fueled tanning terrace and small bar area worked by professional playboys. By night the tanning terrace is transformed into an extension of the dining room with the pretty and the rich breaking bread over the backbeat of DJs spinning lounge and house anthems.
Bodrum's beach scene gets a late start in the day, but arrive no later than 1pm for the beach club and no earlier than 9pm for evening dinner.
Sexy seaside eatery, beach club and night lounge offers all-day destination for Bodrum's celebrity-set.
