- Kanyon gets its name from Canyon (a.k.a Grand Canyon) due to its architectural resemblance to a steep-sided gorge. It was the first open-air social structure/mall in Istanbul and had encountered a lot of criticism during its opening. Now, it has become one of the most frequented establishments during lunch hours, after work and on Sundays for the cinema. Kanyon has a mall area, an elegant food court area, a fitness center, a residential section and an office building. The fitness center, Mars Athletic Club, is a trendy, upscale place catering mostly to those working in and around Kanyon. The Cinema, also owned by the Mars Group, has indeed one of the best cinema saloons in the city; and the food court, which does not have the regular mall court structure, allows for people watching and socializing. Inside the food court are separate restaurants lined side by side. These restaurants are all well-known, mostly up-scale or above average places, including Konyalı, Kitchnette, Gina, Midpoint, Mezzaluna Express and House Cafe. On the bottom floor (floor B2) is an open area that is used for all sorts of purposes: Sunday Jazz Sessions, ice-skating, activities for children and workshops etc. Now is open also the clubber's most frequented club on the roof of Kanyon: Wanna. Don't be surprised if you see heeled ladies walking off the mall late midnight :)
