Marmaris' beautiful summer breeze makes for perfect evenings to go out for drinks. Whether wanting to try new and exciting cocktails, or party till the early morning, Marmaris will accommodate to your wishes.
We talked about where you can find the best pubs to match your criteria in our Where To Drink in Marmaris? guide, but we thought it best to do a separate article to give some examples of some of the best pubs you can go to if you don't want to bother with all the research. Below, you will find the absolute best Marmaris bars and pubs to quench your thirst after a long day under the sun.
It would be a crime to put any other bar on top of this list because the team at Talk of The Town has taken things to another level when it comes to running a bar. But what separates this bar from all the others in Marmaris is the theater shows! At Talk of The Town, they hold theater shows and drag acts, and countless other plays that everyone in Marmaris absolutely adores.
Seriously, ask anyone out on the street and they'll point you towards it. But their biggest seller is definitely the drag act. It's incredibly fun to attend, no matter who you go with. A team of four usually performs it and you can never guess who they're going to dress up as next.
These guys are so serious about their art that in the off-season, they travel the world to perform and advertise their bar to attract new customers for that year's summer. It is no wonder, then, that their shows are sold out almost the minute they advertise them. So, we strongly encourage you to check them out if planning to holiday in Marmaris this year.

Santana is Marmaris' version of The X Factor, where you, too, may have the chance to impress the crowd with your singing. While it does have certain club aspects, it still maintains a laid-back atmosphere, so you can still enjoy the singing without your ears ringing.
This one's perfect for families. There's nothing better than to pester the children to get on stage. The sound system is pretty good too, so you can hear the songs clearly. The bar also has a gorgeous design and makes for wonderful holiday photos.
But they don't hold karaoke nights every night, so you can go and have a good time even if you don't enjoy singing or hearing other people sing for that matter.
