Venue Info

The flat-screens dangling over its classic wooden bar, which is serving cocktails like Electric Lemonade and Stiletto, make Galata seem like any old University Village bar. But once you try the food, you'll be transported to Istanbul, particularly with the crisp borek (fried dough stuffed with feta), juicy beef-and-lamb doner, and an array of spreads from hummus to ezme (bell peppers and tomatoes). You can stop in until midnight on weekends, meaning your last meal of the day might just be the best.
