Starbucks in Istanbul

Istiklal 18, , Turkey

This store, just off Istanbul's famous Taksim Square, appears tiny right now, just a couple of months after its opening, but the supervisor tells me that it will be expanded into the largest Starbucks in Europe!

Beautiful architecture in this centre, and some beautiful decorations in the Starbucks.

Bebek 99074, Istanbul, Turkey

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 5/29/2013



I've known of this store for years, and now that I finally visit I see that it completely deserves its reputation as one of the best in Europe. You will of course notice the view at first, which can be enjoyed from any of four levels, although I recommend the top floor as the best vantage point--if you can find a spot on the tiny patio, that is. If you can peel yourself away from the view of strait and walk around, you will notice some unique features. On the ground floor, a wall-sized painting of a ship. Go down one level, and you will probably notice a large map on the wall, labeled "Carte de Constantinople", to give you an idea of its age. Look around some more, and you will see a diving helmet on a shelf above a condiment bar, an old black and white image titled "Kiosque de Bebek", a pair of oars, and something else nautically-related that I could not identify. And it goes without saying that the entire store is spacious and smartly decorated. Oh, and it even has a second bar up top--there are only a handful of Starbucks around the world with two bars.

The sign for this store is unusual, and inside you will find a unique mural on the bottom floor, and on the top floor a metal wall that provides a contrast with the brick walls downstairs.

Bilgi University, Istanbul, Turkey

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 6/1/2013, ORIGINAL VISIT: 5/31/2013



On a university campus, this location has a bit of an unusual design. The lobby, where customers queue, is tiny, and I imagine the line usually extends out the door. Customers who try to find seating upstairs will be surprised to find a Muji store--the seating is actually in an adjacent room, and also outside on a patio shared with nearby Friends cafe.

Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey

Though small, this store has a pretty design, but the real reason you should visit is for the view. Now, you don't actually get the view from the Starbucks itself, but from the pathway leading down into the courtyard in front of the building.

Bostanci, Istanbul, Turkey

Very close to the water, and if you sit on the patio you get a bit of a view. Not spectacular, mostly the hills beyond the water, but still prettier than the view at your average Starbucks.

CEVAHIR 3426, Istanbul, Turkey

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 5/31/2013



Okay, I'm not sure this store is labeled correctly, as far as the Starbucks website goes. There are two stores in this mall, about 50 metres from one another. The receipt for this one reads "STARBUCKS COFFEE CEVAHIR", so I used the CEVAHIR 3426 listing. I've no idea what the 3426 means. See my comments for "Debenhams Cevahir (Dead)".

Cevahir Meydan, Istanbul, Turkey

Right behind this store is a large, posh, shopping mall with two Starbucks, but you'll want to hang out at this one inside. The building is old and pretty, the floor tile is decorative, and the view from upstairs, of the plaza, offers some great people-watching. Also, if you take your time and look closely, you will see neat little decorations throughout.

Typically, the stores inside other stores are just uninteresting kiosks, but this one is actually a better hangout than the inline store, because it has an outdoor patio with a view. It's not a great view, but at least the water is barely visible above the buildings. The smoking sucks, though.

Debenhams Cevahir (Dead), Istanbul, Turkey

OPENED: ???, PHOTO: 5/31/2013



Okay, I'm not sure this store is labeled correctly, as far as the Starbucks website goes. There are two stores in this mall, about 50 metres from one another. The receipt for this one reads "STARBUCKS COFFEE DEBENHAMS", but the listing I used from the website reads "Debenhams Cevahir (Dead)". But that's not all. There is another listing on the website, "Debenhams Cevahir 99048 (Closed)", and when I inquired, I learned that it had merely closed for "repair" (he probably meant renovation) and reopened in the same place. So basically, I don't understand the listings--all I know is that I've been to two stores in the mall. That works for now, but if they ever relocate either of the two stores in the future, I might have trouble figuring that out.

This store is unusual because, unlike most stores in malls here in Istanbul, it has a door to the outside that doesn't require going through a metal detector. However, one cannot access the rest of the mall without going into the hallway and through security.
