This place surely is authentic, in the sense that it's a gathering place for locals to smoke water pipe, drink tea and talk. But as a tourist one may feel uncomfortable, especially women. I went with my husband and still felt weird being there and...More

In order to try Nargile , highly reccomend this spot for. It's walking distance from Beyazit Tramstation when you walk through Cemberlitas, it's located on your left hand side. You may feel the authentic athmosphere with Turkish coffe and tea.

Ottoman style courtyard with quality nargile. We patroned the first shop on the left. Attentive staff replace heat coals like clockwork. Best Turkish coffee we tried in Istanbul (rich, almost chocolatey). A cool, chill vibe with traditional Turkish charm.

evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
