Tophane Nargile Cafes information
This atmospheric row of nargile cafes behind the Nusretiye Mosque is always packed with locals enjoying tea, nargile and snacks. Follow your nose to find it – the smell of apple tobacco is incredibly enticing. It costs around TL50 for a 'VIP package' (tea, one nargile and some snacks to share) or around TL25 for tea and nargile only.
