Abstract:

There are some unique features of cities that provide definitions in national culture. Entertainment culture is also one of these elements. Istanbul is one of the good examples that expresses urban texture, as well. It is possible to see the entertainment culture of the venues of Istanbul in the writings, of Osman Cemal Kayg l , one of the important writers of Turkish literature, which he wrote in the early years of the Republic. Osman Cemal, who is a good observer like Hüseyin Rahmi Gürp nar, Ahmet Rasim, Sermet Muhtar Alus, queries the daily lives and entertainment culture of the people travelling around Istanbul district by district and street by street. He tells about the entertainment culture of the places where people gathered, such as casinos, coffee shops, recreational areas, beaches, public baths that spread all over the city. As it is understood from the writings, the places in question are not only the venues where people ate or drank, visited, had a bath or swam. These venues, where people in different religions and races lived in peace and came together, had also become an important center where entertainment culture continued with different activities.
