Socrates Bistro – But first, cocktails!

Socrates is a “Thinking Sports Magazine” first published in Turkey and now in Europe. It is not like other sport magazines. It’s an intellectual storyteller much more than a score announcer. It’s interested in the philosophy of sport. Socrates Bistro is the cool pub in Nişantaşı and it took its name from this magazine. 

This partnership makes Socrates different in many aspects. It’s a small,  stylish and cosy place, not a sports pub. 

Even though it’s not poised as a sports pub, it has a unique connection with sports issues. Every month the Socrates magazine has a unique monthly theme, and you can taste dishes related to that month’s theme in Socrates Bistro. 

For example, if you are watching a Barcelona – Real Madrid match in Socrates Bistro, you can enjoy delicious tapas and paella cooked especially for that day.  

And the most special perk of Socrates Bistro: the cocktails! They really have a wide variety of cocktails from all over the world, and they are very good at it! If you don’t want to have one of specials of the day dishes, you can choose your meal from a regular menu. Mac & cheese may be a good option.
