In recent years, the asmalımescit area grew a lot and has become one of the night life centers in Istanbul. This area is limited with a few intersecting streets where Sofyalı street is the focus point. Faces is one of the bars lined up on Sofyalı street with a different color.
It’s a restaurant – bar, serving food till 22:00 and then turns into a club where tables are replaced with stands. It has two floors and the upper floor is ideal for large groups or birthday parties. They offer international cuisine on their menu but I’ve never been there before 22:00.
What I like is the club “face” starting late at night. The music is a mixture of Turkish and international hits but 80′s hits are always on top of the list. I’ve never seen somebody not singing loudly or moving with the rhythm when it’s the 80′s turn.
Unfortunately the club is packed after midnight, and it’s even hard to move or to reach the bar for a drink. I advice you to try one of their cocktails listed on board, which changes daily. It is open till 04:00 but after 02:00 some people prefer bar hopping and the club gets less crowded, which is ideal for dancing.
