Istanbul's nouveau steakhouse and cocktail bar adds sophistication to it's succulent dining experience

The Nopa restaurant and grill has recently opened in the Nisantasi neighbourhood in Istanbul, adding some juxtaposing vibrancy to the already cosmopolitan, yet cultural city.

The eatery's easily retractable roof adds a modern edge to the interior, transforming an indoor element of the room into an outdoor terrace, and the green vertical walls are a refreshing component to the contrasting darker finishings of marble leather and stone surfaces.

The restaurant was created by The House Hotel group, who also run the operations, and was designed by Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Cağlar of Autobahn.
