Referred to as a neo-Lebanese restaurant, Arabesque is another innovative institution by İzzet Çapa—the famous nightlife guru of Istanbul.

 

Located in the Maçka neighborhood, the colorful venue’s walls are covered with graffiti by the famous Lebanese artist Yahya Muhakkin. Another huge plus of the venue is its fantastic views of the Bosphorus.

 

The menu focuses on Middle Eastern fare, with plenty of meze options, few mains, and a variety of desserts. After dinner, the venue becomes a club; the DJ plays a mix of music from oriental Arabic pieces to Turkish pop to rap, keeping the energy high. Arabesque also offers belly dancing performances every night.

 

The venue is ideal for bachelorette parties and birthday celebrations. A fix menu is available to make life easier for large groups.

 

Keep in mind that the venue gets quite crowded even on weeknights so make sure you make reservations in advance.
