Dining in Ankara
Dining in Divan Çukurhan
The historic ethos and authentic ambiance of the Çukurhan and Çengelhan are as inspiring for our culinary team as they are delightful for our guests, and that is reflected in the diverse food and beverage offerings you will discover when you visit us. Divan Çengelhan Brasserie is the centrepiece of the Çengelhan Rahmi M. Koç Museum’s gallery, and nestled between life-size biplane models and working 19th century steam engines on display in a 16th century caravanserai, you will discover an equally provocative fusion of traditional Turkish and Ottoman cuisine with international fare.
Or bask in the sunlight that streams through Divan Çukurhan Hotel’s enormous glass ceiling as you enjoy a light lunch sampling one of the Avlu Restaurant’s innovative contemporary interpretations of Turkish favourites, a culinary fusion that echoes the restaurant’s setting. If you would prefer a perfectly shaken martini or a fresh and fragrant espresso, you have your choice of a terrace facing the Ankara Citadel and overlooking the city at the Çukurhan Museum Café, the cosy Avlu Bar or the Çengelhan Museum Bar, where industrial artefacts dating back centuries are as intriguing as the drinks are refreshing. Naturally, at a design hotel that thrives on diversity and personal service, one of the greatest luxuries you will enjoy is a tempting variety of choices...

The cosy Avlu Bar, tucked into a private room off of the main arcade at Divan Çukurhan Hotel is almost reminiscent of the “snug” at a traditional country pub. The nostalgic décor, including historic photographs of Turkey from Ottoman times through the mid-20th century, enhances this comfortable and relaxing environment, making the Avlu Bar perfect for a quiet drink or a private conversation.
