Hello Anne

I'm from IStanbul,I live and study in Istanbul ,I do internship as atttorney here since I graduated from law school and I live in my home in Istanbul..There are a lot of fun things to do in istanbul ,and most fun places are popular among both tourists and residents such as Taksim,Aksaray and Sultanahmet...The nightlife in Taksim is the best and unique but also in other parts of the city it's cool,like in Ortakoy,Besiktas..I recommend you travel around the Sultanahmet area during the DAY time ,dont visit Taksim during the day because it's too crowded and there's a construction site ongoing there for a subway project at the core of the region so it would be harassing for you but at night it's great to be in Taksim ,and yes there are a lot of places to have a beer and listen to live music,etc etc..You can do it everyday but especially just like in Germany and other places in Europe it's most lively on Saturday Nights..
You can enjoy and have fun till the early hours of the day in Taksim,as for sultanahmet it's rather more placid and silent part of the city but it's got many historical buildings and things left from Ottoman era,so you may wanna visit them with your friend too..There's also Fatih region which is another historical part of the city where you can see the Fatih Mosque,in Sultanahmet you could see the Blue Mosque as you probably learnt about already..

Finally no matter where you go or visit in Istanbul ,,be very careful and alert about people..especially if you do shopping or eat at some cafe or restaurant coz since ur a tourist there's always a danger to get ripped off for you :P..
Hope you'll have fun in here.
