While examining one of the most renowned nightlife clusters in the country, the study also evaluates the current condition of the nightlife industry in Turkey and identifies its challenges within the context of the recent political, economic and social developments. The assessment of Kadikoy Nightlife Cluster’s current condition points out to the necessity of a more intense and close collaboration among all the actors, including governmental institutions, in order to improve the cluster’s performance.
