    At the beginning we will need help to "build" the place... there is no still a place but we are searching for it... it will be a shop, an apartment or a kind of atelier... So first we need help in painting, construction, plumbing stuff... for sure we will need someone able to build a bathroom or toilet in our place...

    And later we it will be open we would like to have people helping in the kitchen cooking traditional receipts... but mostly people with artistic skills... musicians, djs, tattoo makers, dancers who wanna play in our place... we are very open to listen what u could offer to us to make it a very fantastic funny unique place!

    Istanbul is Turkey's most populous city as well as its cultural and financial hub. Located on both sides of the Bosphorus, the narrow strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe both physically and culturally. Istanbul's population is estimated to be between 12 and 19 million people, making it also one of the largest cities in Europe and the world.

    Istanbul offers a wealth of historic and religious places to take in. The bulk of these ancient monuments, dating back to Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman periods, including the Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace, Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), and Basilica Cistern are located around Sultanahmet Square, while some others are dispersed throughout the peninsula of old city, such as Church of St Savior in Chora (Kariye Müzesi), the entire inside of which is covered by mindblowing frescoes and mosaics.
