Kadife Sokak No. 16, Kadıköy, Istanbul

Daily 11.00–02.00

It may look dark and gloomy but KargArt is anything but. A bar and a space for art at the same time, KargArt occasionally hosts concerts, exhibitions, theatre performances, film screenings and conversations. It is also one of the venues for the annual Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival. But just as a bar, it is one of the best in Kadıköy, serving a good selection of drinks and playing fantastic music in a setting not dissimilar from a good ‘ol English pub.

Woodstock and Zeplin Pub nearby are also good for a drink.
