Must see street filled with quirky shops, designer boutiques, several nice hotels and excellent restaurants. Serdar-Ekrem is one of the most exclusive streets of Istanbul , attracting many locals, expats and visitors with its designer boutiques, high end cafes, gourmet shops and art galleries. Around 50 meters away from Galata tower or Sishane subway station, Istiklal street exit or 300 meters from Sishane square exit. (Near Istiklal street) Full of energy yet, being a mostly pedestrian street, you can experience calm Istanbul.
