Were smack dab in the middle of the Karakoy and Tophane tram stops. It is easiest to navigate the streets if you get off at Tophane, and, walk towards Karakoy stop (or Galata bridge ), on the street that has the tram line. Go about 300 meters. Turn left at the street called Arapoglan, where the HSBC BANK is (also a bar called Finn in the street, or when you're opposite the outdoor equipments store called Hedef) Then turn right immediately onto Serçe Street. Bada Bing is there!
If you are too lazy to commute, we also offer pick ups. Please contact us to get information on airport pick-ups.
If you are thinking of taking a taxi, make sure to write down our phone number and kindly ask the driver to call us for the directions. Because the taxi drivers don't always seem to know where to go especially once they find out that you don't know where to go :)
