Chianti Pub & Bar (20:00-02:00)

Address: Istiklal Caddesi, Balo Sokak No:31 / 2, (2nd floor) Beyoglu, Istanbul.
Web: Facebook Foursquare & Pinterest
A homely gay cafe & bar which opens in early hours of the day but it is more busy in the evenings and around midnight. It's like a quiet chill-out cafe in late afternoon until it gets more busy and louder after around 9-10 p.m. Chianti is located towards the end of Balo street if you walk in from Istiklal Avenue. Balo Sokak is not far from well-known Galatasaray High School. It is on the second floor of the building.
Attention: There are variety of bars and clubs on almost every floor in the same building and one of them (possibly the new club on ground / entrance floor) is kind of a tourist trap. In late 2018 several people complained that they were invited in that bar as if it was Chianti where they wanted to overcharge them So please make sure to go to the right place. After entering the building you must climb up 2 stairways to reach Chianti Bar on 2nd floor (excluding the club at the basement floor which has a separate entrance)
