Cafe Istanbul, 32 years old, and still going strong

CAFE ISTANBUL, one of Manchester’s most established restaurants, is to celebrate its 32nd birthday with the launch of a new private club/dining room. 

The Bridge Street restaurant has been serving Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine since 1980.

The new private dining and club room will have an interior designed by Bernard Carroll (Panacea, San Carlo, Cicchetti) to offer a 'sophisticated and intimate feel' and is located downstairs from the restaurant. It seats 50 diners. 

There's a feature stocked with beers, wine, spirits and champagne , the room is available to hire (free when dining – minimum numbers apply) from noon until late for private dinner parties, corporate events, launches and special occasions.   

Owner of Café Istanbul, Sacit Onur, said:

”We’ve lived through so many changes in the city, alongside our own. When we opened in 1980 we truly were a café, we quickly expanded as we grew more popular and into a restaurant and bar. This new room is big enough for large parties to have sit down meals but is still intimate and stylish.”
