One street removed the bustle of taksim shopping, this cafe offered a quiet break with local beer and bruschetta. Outdoor seating was shaded and quaint. Attentive service.

We stopped by Urban Cafe for some beer. I was kind of disappointed because they didn't have Leffe. Not a bad place to stop by but not special either.

Located at a side road of Istiklal street, a small place which serves coffes,drinks and several choices for meals. It has actually 3 levels with few stairs between them. Nice decorated, soft music, tasty foods and friendly staff.

It's hard to find independent beers in Istanbul but urban had a decent amber ale which was very nice. The bar itself is modern with a good vibe and does a good selection of bar meals.

Not far off Istiklal and close to Galatasaray Lycee. Graffiti and a vine canopy makes this space feel quite cool and intimate. Dim light with scattered chairs and low tables add to the feel of this place. Lots of hipsters and students make up the...More

At the end of a little street with a green vegetal roof, this a good place to take a drink in a good vibes spot.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
