but the prices of drinks (including beer and non-alcoholic beverages) are just outrageously high. Still worth visiting, especially if your team wins.

Place lacks character and welcomes. WiFi terrible, beer expensive €5.00 a pint they have some cheek. Staff really pushing you to drink. Never really submit negative reviews but this is one place to avoid.

Overpriced beers for a start and the manager is in on scams at the bar. We just wanted some place to have a drink to finish our night. However, some overly keen Turk wouldn't leave us alone and paid for our beer without telling us...More

I cannot express how much I discourage visiting this establishment. This is my first trip advisor review ever, having travelled across the world - I was incensed on leaving this pub. On visiting a very quiet bar on a Sunday night two guys tried to...More

Despite the fact that my fav team lost, but this is the best place to watch a football match in Istanbul - aside from a football stadium. Great atmosphere, lovely staff, options are great and the food was very delicious. Totally recommended.

From the beginning I received a really good service. It has nice prices for food and drinks related to the quality and quantity. It looks confusing because it is usually empty, but that makes it always available. One of the best places that I visited,...More

Nice corner pub with busy outlook up road toward Sultanhamet. Beams all the sports in from around globe. Serves cold Efes on tap plus other imports. Enjoyable location in Old City. Gulhane Tram stop opposite front door. Too easy.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
