şişhane sweetspot: the kamondo mansion




If I were to plan an indulgent escape for adults, without leaving the city limits, I would stay in the slightly spooky, somewhat spare restoration of the Kamondo family’s 19th Century mansion. Home to the Adahan Hotel, Comedus, Baylo and Gram, there’s something particularly louche about this street corner, especially in the evening hours.

18:00 – 18:15 …
check into the Adahan Hotel.

18:15 – 19:45  …
for your discretion. adult only content.

19:45 – 20:05 …
compose yourself, make yourself respectable — at least briefly.

20:15 – 20:30 …
go down to Comedus and stock up your room with some essentials (for later).

20:35 – 21:00 …
take in the view at the Adahan restaurant upstairs with an aperitif

21:00 – 23:00 …
enjoy some more Mediterranean delights. restrict yourself to those on the menu, for a while, anyway.

23:00 – 02:00 …
indulge at Baylo, a New Yorkistan style bar that knows how to make a drink.

02:00 – 02:05 …
stumble back upstairs to your Adahan suite room

02:05 – 04:00 …
this is when your supplies from Comedus will come in handy. once again, adults only.

04:00 – 10:30 …
get a little bit of sleep. especially before the sun rises.

10:30 – 11:30 …
coffee and late breakfast at Gram.

11:30 – … ?
get some fresh air already! some sunlight! resume the healthy living. for a while.
