Add to favorites
  • Start your date at an old-school arcade; Video Store in Beyoğlu, where you can indulge in nostalgia and fun, playing the video games both you and your partner love. The arcade offers a variety of classic games playable at low cost, perfect for your tight budget. After winning, and possibly losing some games, make your way to a charming rooftop cafe.
  • In Istanbul, rooftop cafes are buzzed about for their perfect blend of fine Turkish coffee, cozy ambiance, and scenic panoramas. Visit Latife Türk Kahvesi in Galata, revered for its stunning view and rich brews. Here, savor cups of the local coffee, unwind, and engage in heartfelt conversations while overseeing the beautiful Istanbul skyline under the November sky.
  • As the date concludes, take your partner to a scenic spot. If you both love to walk and explore, take a casual stroll down Istiklal Street. It's an excellent place to enjoy a romantic evening under the gentle November breeze while appreciating the mesmerizing scene of bustling Istanbul.

Preparation steps:

  • Both locations are situated in the heart of Istanbul, so make sure to plan your route in advance. You might consider using public transport to get there. If you're unfamiliar with the area, take time to look for maps or ask for directions.
  • The weather in Istanbul during November can be unpredictable, so remember to check the weather forecast before leaving and dress appropriately. Casual, comfortable clothing and good walking shoes will be ideal for both the arcade and the lovely stroll down Istiklal Street.
  • As it's a chill date, you don't need anything fancy. However, do make sure to have enough small coins or change for the arcade games. Also, carry a camera or a smartphone to capture your fun moments together.

Some tips:

  • Start the date early afternoon, so you can enjoy both the arcade and the rooftop cafe during daylight. The arcade may get crowded during evenings, especially on weekends.
  • If your partner is not very familiar with video games, assure them it's all about having fun together, not about winning. Choose games that are easy and fun to play for beginners.
  • While at the cafe, try to pick a seat with the best view of the city. Enjoy your Turkish coffee, but make sure to eat something before or have some snacks (try Turkish bagel - simit) as Turkish coffee is quite strong especially for those not used to it.
