The love child of the chilled café genre and the boho bar, Urban is an oasis of calm during the day and a red-hot hangout by night. Set across two levels, with a mezzanine floor at street level and a bar below, when it's busy the hip, young locals sip Efes and spill out onto the street.
Located on a quiet side street in Beyoglu, the outside terrace is covered by a leafy underpass with graffitied walls and vines, which keep the sun at bay. There are people getting their chat on in every available space, and the old school interior is full of polished wood and soft armchairs in retro colours. If you’re looking for somewhere to settle in for the evening away from the crowds and noise of nearby Istiklal, this local hangout gets our vote.
