Bağdat Avenue (Turkish: Bağdat Caddesi, literally Baghdad Avenue) is a notable high street located in the Anatolian part of İstanbul, Turkey. It can be seen as the counterpart of Istiklal Avenue on the European side in terms of importance and glamour. The one-way avenue with old plane trees is flanked with shopping malls, department stores, fashion garment stores, elegant shops offering world famous brands, restaurants of international and local cuisine, pubs and cafés, luxury car dealers and bank agencies. The avenue runs 6 km from Bostancı to Kızıltoprak, almost parallel to the coastline of the Sea of Marmara, within the district of Kadıköy. The neighbourhoods on the route westwards are: Bostancı, Çatalçeşme, Suadiye, Şaşkınbakkal, Erenköy, Caddebostan, Göztepe, Çiftehavuzlar, Selamiçeşme, Feneryolu and Kızıltoprak.
