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'.

I have visited Eskici tunel on 13, Agust 2016. This place offers cheap beer, dull boring ambience, mostly male crowd during daytime. The Music was not so good, its toilet was dirty. İ recommend kafepi, just couple steps away from there.

We found this pub at the start of our stay in Istanbul. Located just across from the Tunnel underground it's a great place for happy hour drinks in the day for all ages but lively and young at night.

Eskici pera is a small pub located at the end of istiklal street, great atmosphere, grab a beer & enjoy your time with some good Turkish songs. By the way it's very cheap.

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
