Volkswagen Arena

UNIQ Istanbul, Ayazağa Cad No 4A, Maslak, Sarıyer, Istanbul

A short taxi or dolmuş ride from the İTÜ-Ayazağa metro stop. Be sure to exit the metro on the Ayazağa side to get a taxi/dolmuş going in the right direction. Alternatively, there is a ring bus service every 20 minutes from the İTÜ-Ayazağa metro (opposite Windowist).

The first proper indoor arena in Istanbul. The shining star of the UNIQ Istanbul complex, Volkswagen Arena has the capacity to host big names in music. Since opening in 2014, the guitarist Jack White, the pianist Fazıl Say and many more have already graced its stage.

Once inside the venue, concert-goers will find numerous bars selling local brews and the best imported beers. Stop by Tamirane, situated in the adjacent shopping centre, for a bite before the show.
