    The Best Areas to Host an After-Works Event in Istanbul

    If you’ve been to Istanbul before, you probably already know the city has lovely neighbourhoods. And the best part is, no two neighbourhoods here are alike! 

    It was tough, but we’ve picked some neighbourhoods with the best after-work rooms in Istanbul for you to check out.


    A quaint neighbourhood located on the European side of Istanbul, one of the first things you’ll notice about Bebek is the crisp seaside air. That’s because Bebek is located along the coastline of the Bosphorus sea and is the perfect escape from the hustle of the city.

    That’s not the reason we recommend you host your after-works event in Istanbul here. There are several cool restaurants and cafes located here which are great if you’d like to grab a meal or have a sundowner after a long day of work.

    And, don’t even get us started on the sunset views here - you’ll have to see it to know why Bebek is known as ‘the apple of the Bosphorus eye’!


    The second neighbourhood on our list is also on the European side of Istanbul. It is one of the most unmissable neighbourhoods in Istanbul.

    Not only is Beyoğlu known for its cobbled streets and gorgeous architecture, but it’s also often considered the hub of entertainment in Istanbul.

    Plus, the nightlife here is one of the best in the city, with several restaurants, bars, and other lovely after-work venues at your beck and call.


    You might be surprised to know that Eminonu has made it to our list of top neighbourhoods to find after-works venues in Istanbul, but you’ll understand why soon!

    This commercial waterfront area is not only well-connected to the rest of the city, but it also has some brilliant restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine.

    Plus, the lively atmosphere in Eminonu is sure to perk all your attendees up after a long day of work, so an after-work event in Eminonu is always a hit!


    Last but not least, we come to Nisantasi. If you’re looking for an upscale area for after-works rooms in Istanbul, this is the right place for you.

    Nisantasi is home to some of Istanbul’s finest hotels and restaurants, serving 5-star cocktails and food. And, if you’re attendees fancy a spot of shopping before the event begins, they can stroll through the area’s many haute couture boutiques.

    Good food, a good atmosphere, and some great after-work venues, what more could you want from a neighbourhood?

    FAQ about Istanbul Afterwork Venues

    Is it hard to get alcohol in Istanbul?

    Although heavy drinking is not a part of Turkish culture, you’ll find alcohol easily available in most restaurants and bars. To serve alcohol in Istanbul, you’ll need to get proper licensing. While most restaurants and bars already possess a license, if your after-work room is slightly off-beat, check with the venue or one of our local experts about the alcohol license.

    What is the cancellation policy for after-works rooms in Istanbul?

    Most after-work venues in Istanbul charge by the hour and the cancellation policy usually differs in different venues. It’s safe to say, however, that the closer to the date of your booking that you cancel, the less money you’ll get back.

    Do after-works rooms in Istanbul provide catering services?

    If you’re hosting your after-works event in Istanbul in a restaurant or a bar, the venue will usually have in-house catering. In case you’re hosting your after-works in a venue without in-house catering, you can check out this list of The Best Event Caterers in Istanbul.

    There usually isn’t a set time for bars and restaurants in Istanbul to close. Other venues usually stay open until at least 11 PM but if you’re unsure, please check with the venue or one of our local experts before making your booking.
