Tarihi Cumhuriyet Meyhanesi

Sahne Sokak No. 47, Beyoğlu, Istanbul

Mon–Sun: 12.00 noon– 01.00am

A restaurant ingrained in Beyoğlu’s history, Cumhuriyet Meyhanesi was opened in the early years of the Republic and was popular with Turkish poets and authors. A special table was also always kept for Atatürk.

Classical meyhane dishes are on the menu. There is live fasıl (traditional Turkish music) on the upper level some nights of the week.

Nearby Degustasyon was similarly popular with the city’s literary circle.
