Sofa Art & Antiques

Serdar-ı Akrem Sok, Seraskerci Çıkmazı No 2, Galata, Istanbul

Two minutes’ walk from Tünel and a minute from the İstiklal entrance to Şişhane metro. Follow Şah Kulu Sokağı (next to the Swedish Consulate) down the hill past the Alman Lisesi. Turn left in Serdar-ı Akrem Sok and you will see Sofa straight ahead of you. The Crimean Memorial Church is 50 yards further down the hill.

This is one of the most wonderful shops in the city, and the collection Kaşif Gündoğdu has amassed in his antiques emporium is worthy of a museum. After 40 years as the favourite meeting point in Nuruosmaniye, he has moved to Beyoğlu, and old aficionados will be delighted to know it is the same old Sofa, but in happily more soothing less surroundings, far from the mad hungry crowd. The Come here for 19th-century icons and Ottoman miniatures, as well as illuminated books and jewellery, not to mention delightful conversation and civilised music.
