about araf cafe bar

Set atop the the tumbledown Beyoglu building and overlooking the mansion spread of Tarlabasi, Araf puts the life in Istanbul's nightlife. Thronged by a multitude of students, both local and international, Araf is an exciting potpourri of cultures, always humming with the bubbling excitement of people meeting up, swaying to the sounds of the live gypsy band performing there every night.

Located on, where else, but Nevizade Sokak, Istanbul's liveliest street known for its soul stirring nightlife, Araf is where in addition to incredible music offerings, cheap tap beer is available for you guzzle down with incoming platters of mezes. While there is a live gypsy music band performance every day, with reggae, soul, rock n roll being played in the background by the DJs, on tuesday nights you can expect celebrated Romani clarinettist Selim Sesler to play here. While weekends are livelier affairs, it is better to visit Araf on weekdays as not only is live music not played, the entire floor is so packed that the party spills over to the floor below.
