Fodor's Review

One of Beyoğlu's longest-running live music venues, Hayal Kahvesi has been in operation for over 20 years, recently moving into a sleek spot two streets up from the original, far grungier location. The long, narrow space hosts nightly gigs by both well-known and up-and-coming Turkish bands and musicians, mostly playing rock, with the occasional blues, jazz, or pop in the mix. The main performance usually starts mid- to late evening, with a cover band coming on after midnight.
