What people are saying:

A gallery, museum, and research space, SALT Galata is the more academic cousin of SALT Beyoglu. The events and exhibitions here are somewhat less fiery, but the library is absolutely amazing and has an impressive collection of works about art and architecture of the Ottoman period. The restaurant and café has great views of the city sky line and Golden Horn, and the bookstore is also notable. The building is a short walk down from the Galata tower, in an imposing building that used to house a bank.
