Corlulu Ali Pasa Medresesi is a well-known atmospheric water-pipe (nargile or hookah) place in Beyazit, Istanbul.

Students from nearby Istanbul University and neighbourhood tradesmen rest here along with tourists. The leafy courtyard of the Medrese contains an outdoor garden and gift shops. Indoors, small historical buildings stand side-by-side. Cafes serve various kinds of tea and soft drinks.

The Medrese has been built in 1709. The place is named for Ali Pasa who was a grand vizier of the Ottoman empire. He was born in Corlu city in 1669. He built many works of art including libraries, mosques, fountains and charitable establishments. Originally this place was a Medrede, a Muslim theological school.
