Beşiktaş çarşı (market) is not an ordinary market place but also home of Beşiktaş football club fans where they gather before a game. Its location advantage, being close to the stadium, is ideal for fans to eat and consume alcohol at restaurants or on streets.
They have singing marches an half an hour prior to the game and then they walk to the stadium to take their seats. Once they leave, the fish restaurants around the fish market are ideal spots to watch game on tv where Çarşı Balık is one of them.
No need to say that customers are Beşiktaş supporters and the atmosphere is not much different than in a stadium. Although I’m not a Beşiktaş fan, I really enjoy watching football at this restaurant. The tables are so close to each other that at a first glance one can easily think that a large group is dining together.
In fact you won’t be entirely wrong, in a few minutes people start chatting with others around, chatting especially about the football game while enjoying mezes and fresh fish according to season. After the game you could easily observe people changing cards or phone numbers, planning to watch the next game together. Although I have to stay silent when my team scores, it is great fun to watch fans more than the game.
