Why locals love it

Why you should visit it
Karabat is perhaps the only cafe in Tehran offering recurring weekly performances to musicians in town. The programming has a heavy focus on jazz, but includes a healthy dose of folk and rock music for good measure. Patrons enjoy the centralized location of the stage, ensuring the performance is up-front and centre, for all to see.
Karabat is one of the few places in Tehran with proper, palatable espresso-based coffee drinks.
