27 years of 5.Kat (The5th Floor)

The head spinning adventure of “5. Kat(5th Floor) Restaurant” filled with art, taste and style began in 1993, in Beyoğlu’s historic Cihangir neighborhood. It took its name from the 5th floor of the building it’s in, Bilsak (science art institute ); Istanbul’s oldest civilian cultural center which has played host to many cultural events, concerts, talks and art workshops. Thus, its setting became probably the city’s most breathtaking one, reaching from Sarayburnu to the Bosporus. Actress/director Yasemin Alkaya is the founder and her passion for art is reflected on everything from the extraordinary fabric of the place to its yummylicious food and of course to its celebrity guest list. Famous names like Türkan Şoray, Halil Ergün, Mehmet Alabora,Meltem Cumbul,Çağan Irmak,Yılmaz Erdoğan,Tamer Levent,and many of all shared what they eat, drink and listen to with their fans during special nights at the 5th Floor.
