Hayal Kahvesi

In the business of realizing dreams…

Hayal Kahvesi

A fixture on the Istanbul live music scene since the early ‘90s, Hayal is one of the first venues that set up shop in the Taksim/Beyoğlu area and hence helped shape up this neighborhood to what it has become today. Many local bands got their first stage experience here and would still cite Hayal as the main venue that launched their career. Even today this philosophy has not changed, so you may still run into new artists and bands in addition to the more established ones.

Just be aware that this venue primarily caters to rock and alternative music. Most bands starts after 10:30pm so try to get there early to make sure you get in.
