Tourist rip off
“Pinokyo Café & Bar in Beyoglu Istanbul rip off tourists. I do not recommend this place. There are much better places on Asian side of Istanbul.“

“We arrived at this venue with high expectations. It was our first gay bar experience in Turkey. What a terribly disappointing venue this is. It is dirty, smelly and the staff were out right rude. They were more interested in having a sleep than serving the clientele. We honestly felt we had imposed on them. Give this one a miss and head up the road to Haspa Cafe & Bar. Friendlier staff and happy to take music requests.“
