This place is unnecessarily ranked so high on TripAdvisor. I visited this restaurant on a Friday evening, and it was totally vacant.

If you are travelling to Istanbul, this is a definite place to see and enjoy the music. If I were in Istanbul, I would go there every day. Life is short to miss great things.

The place is great. They have live music all nights (except Sunday which they are closed). Outdoor tables are good to observe live beyoğlu nights. there are 'permanent staff' cats at outdoor tables (:

Found this funky little place by accident, roaming around with my musician son. The place gets full, fast, so get there early for a seat, if you can. Also, order food early, as they stop serving food later on. Not really jazz, at least not the night we were there, but there was a great blues vibe and everyone had... More

My friend who lives in Istanbul brought us one night when i was in town and even though, i am not a big Blues fan, the place was great and friendly with a healthy mix of European and Turkish people, and the band was fantastic. We stayed for over an hour and it was the best end of my day... More

If you like blues that is the right place to go. Lovely and hot place with lovely people. Since it is quite small please go a bit early (15 minutes) before the program starts.

Cool little blues bar with a great vibe. Mehmet the owner of the place usually hangs out by the stage and drinks a beer. If you are lucky he will join the stage and sing Resimdeki Gozyaslari as he did on our visit. Can't recommend it highly enough. Come here for beer, good music and if you want a great... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
