- What’s On
The oldest of Istanbul’s auction houses, the Portakal Sanat ve Kültür Evi, to give it its full title, began life in the Grand Bazaar and is now into its fourth generation, in the capable hands of its founder’s grandson, the immensely personable Raffi Portakal and his daughter, Maya. Pre-auction viewing takes place in the exceptional 1930s Gün Apartmanı, on Nişantaşı’s elegant Mim Kemal Öke Caddesi. The auctions themselves are held in grand hotels.
