URBAN

"Daytime café, nighttime bar. On a hot summer's day you can protect yourself from the sun under the ivy + sip your cold drink. It will give you the concept of  a street bar with its tables spread all over the street. It is also a good urban point to meet local people + chat."

DEFORM MUSIC

"If you feel a slight desire to listen to records, you are still not a slave to digital music. DeForm Music is one of  the rare representatives of a world full of records on a  city view street. A special store where you can  stop + take a breath while exploring Çukurcuma neighborhood."

KRONOTROP

"A nice coffee shop with small but good coffee. They roast their own coffee + offer it in the best way. Trying espresso or Turkish coffee here is the best. You can have a nice coffee here + discover the old buildings + architecture in this area."
