    Freundliches Irish Pub, seit Jahren immer wieder Gast und immer gerne hier. Bier, Whisky und nette Gespräche.

    They've got one in Honolulu, they've got one in Moscow too
    They got four of them in Sydney and a couple in Kathmandu
    So whether you sing or pull a pint you'll always have a job
    'Cause where ever you go around the world you'll find an Irish pub

    Leo is an excellent host, and we love his place ♥️ we came here with my husband on our best and worst days, and it is our favourite place in Istanbul now 😊 we are some of a few Turkish people around here, mostly foreign (İrish, Scotch, English, American people we met there) and you should definetely visit if you want to experience a real pub in Istanbul 😊

    My husband and I enjoyed *several* cocktails here and had to continue ordering sushi roles because they were so good. The spring rolls were outstanding. The bar also has a stunning atmosphere. Probably our best night out in Istanbul:)

    Irish pub that feels like family I've been coming for 5 years. It is a pub where you can come and talk with your friends, or come alone and find someone to talk with and socialize. Besides being pet friendly, you can participate in darts tournaments held in the garden and even organize your own. The bar rule, bartender is always right energy hanging in the bar is exclusive to Tower Pub only. Don't leave without eating from Diloş's kitchen, drinking Emre's hot wine, and petting Zilli. Greetings to Roni, Elif and Nida. 😘😘

    Typical "meyhane".
    1- The original building is kept as it is.
    2- The service is good in comparison to many famous places..
    3- The food is above average. (we tasted grilled kalamari , grilled "ciger", "saksuka").
    4- No music, so we can talk.
    5- Smoking is not allowed inside.

    I was in Babylon for Jake Bugg acoustic concert in May. The architecture of the concert hall with bricks were beautiful and gave the area a cozy atmosphere. I also think it is good to have a bar all along the back wall for the people who want to take a break and have a drink. The sound system was fine and it is quite easy to get in and out even though there is only one door. Babylon is located in Bomontiada, neighbour to restaurants and cafes so you can also have food/drinks before or after the concert. The only problem is the transportation after the concert. As it is not very close to public transport, taxis line up in front of Bomontiada and that creates a chaos...

    Very cool to be in the middle of the Bosporus and have a cocktail! You can also spend the day and swim or go for dinner. The ferry over is free and the stop is right on the bus route, easy to get to and fun! At the base of the bridge is the famous view with the stunning Ortoköy mosque not far away.

    On the advice of the tour guide, we headed out for dinner to Dejavu restaurant. I ordered a Turkish brewed beer to start, then ordered the Sultan’s Favorite dish with lamb as my entrée. The service was decent, and after placing our orders, we were given bread to start. My meal was flavorful but found it a small portioned meal. Overall it was a good experience, as it was my first meal while in Istanbul, however later in the trip, I had someone outstanding meals, check out my other reviews for the intel.

    Friends and I were staying right around the corner from JJ, plus the craft beer options, made this an inevitable stop!
    We actually ended up stopping in for: a) live music, b) an evening starter, or b) a night cap each of our 4 days in Istanbul.
    They carry one of the city's best craft beers - made by '3 Kafadar' - including a great nitro stout and a very nice IPA (Mosaic).
    Add on some loud, raucous live bands, a warm, convivial atmosphere, and you can see why we enjoyed our visits to 'James Joyce'. There is often a small cover charge for the live bands, but they typically had a free DJ playing chill tunes up top. I hope you do too!

    This is a lovely Pub a ta the Tünel end of Istiklal Street in Taksim. Great atmosphere, good mix of music but stick to beer as the wine is variable and the cocktails are 'interesting'.

    Good feelings with the people in that tavern near the fish market at the harbour.
    Young boys singing traditional songs. Good local wine red and white. Highly recommended.
