From breakfast through to late evening, Şimdi is a great venue. This loft-style bistro with exposed bricks, comfy sofas and large wooden tables is a hub for creative professionals – whether it’s for lunch, coffee, business meetings or just chilling out. The menu is accessible, the air is relaxed and the espresso from the vintage Faema machine is highly recommended.
In Beyoğlu, on the majestic Istiklal Street, you’ll discover shops, eateries and the leading contemporary Turkish art galleries and institutions. As night falls, particularly in the Tunel district, bistros, cocktail bars and burger joints mingle with traditional Turkish meyhanes. Hip crowds of young professional Turks sway to jazz, electronica and Balkan groove while traditional-suited musicians wind their way from table to table, instruments and drums in hand, all blending to create the vibrant cacophonic glory that is Istanbul at night.
