    The Best Areas to Host a Workshop in Istanbul

    Public transportation in Istanbul is a pretty well-oiled machine. That means you can host your workshop in Istanbul anywhere in the city and not have to worry about how to get there. 

    That being said, we have a feeling that you’d prefer to host your workshop in one of the ‘cooler’ neighbourhoods in the city, so here are our top picks:


    Remember we told you that there are intimate, corporate-style workshop rooms in Istanbul? Well, this is the area where they reign supreme.

    One of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Nişantaşi has some of the fanciest business hotels in the city. In short, if you’re looking to host a premier workshop in Istanbul then this neighbourhood will definitely impress your attendees.

    As for after-work events, you’ll find plenty to do in Nişantaşi. This neighbourhood has a reputation for having some of the city’s most elegant restaurants and haute couture boutiques.

    We also like its proximity to Maçka Park - one of the prettiest parks you’ll find in central Istanbul.


    Now, we e promised you that we’d tell you about Istanbul’s trendiest neighbourhood, didn’t we? Well, here it is. 

    Kadıkӧy is a melting pot of some of the city’s hippest bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques set to the backdrop of cool street graffiti or the lovely sea.

    It’s a groovy place for workshops in Istanbul, especially for start-ups. Plus, you’ll have excellent sea views and plenty of options for after-work events as well.


    Now, if you’re looking for a workshop room in Istanbul that brings together both the historic and modern sides of the city, look no further than Galata.

    In this district, you’ll find workshop rooms in boutique hotels or cool cafes with gorgeous views of the famous Galata Tower. 

    And, if you’re looking for something fun to do after your workshop in Istanbul, you’ll be happy to know that this district really comes alive at night. For some afterwork ideas, we recommend hosting a lovely dinner at one of the area's many restaurants or checking out Galata’s vibrant nightlife.


    While the locals head to Sariyer for a breath of fresh air from busy city life, we recommend you check out this area for your workshop in Istanbul.

    Sariyer is known for its Black Sea beaches, museums, the Belgrad Forest, and, you guessed it - cool workshop rooms.

    Although there are only a few venues here for you to host your workshop sessions, what Sariyer lacks in quantity, it sure makes up in quality! If you’re looking for a workshop room in Istanbul that is slightly opulent yet amidst nature, you’ll find one here!
