NileGuide Expert tip:
A practical venue for branded shopping
Istinye Park is a very large complex with too many shops (around 290 different brands), more than 10 cinema saloons, a traditional Turkish bazaar section, a fitness center and an open area with posh bars and restaurants and lux. stores. It is the open area that has really earned Istinye Park its fame and glory. The Istanbulites set their rendez-vous at either Masa Restaurant or Beymen Bej Cafe in the open area and spend hours sitting, drinking, eating and occasionally shopping, while the press hunts down the popular faces trying to catch a glimpse of some hot gossip. The more interesting and the more cozy part of Istinye Park is its Bazaar Area. In the Bazaar Area is the steakhouse Gunaydin
as well as an Ottoman Restaurant and a Fish Restaurant. All of these Restaurants also serve as grocery stores specialized in meat or fish. There are also other small grocery stores selling fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts, honey etc. all in a street seller fashion.
