Dip into Café Society
In Istanbul's Karakoy neighborhood near the Galata Bridge and docks of the Golden Horn, hipster cafes and art galleries are beginning to outnumber the neighborhood's long-standing industrial shops and hidden churches. Karabatak, named for the Bosphorus-diving cormorants, is one of those perfect spots to while away an afternoon and enjoy its beautiful design, interesting people-watching, and great coffee. Contrast the liberal artsy clientele with the ultra-nationalist Turkish Orthodox church next door.
