The Çarşı Hamam (Greek: Τσαρσί Χαμάμ) is an Ottoman bath in the town of Mytilene in Lesbos, Greece. It was probably built in the first quarter of the 19th century, and formed part of the Yeni ("New") Mosque complex. As its name indicates, it was the main market bath for the local neighbourhood. Its layout follows the typical three-part procession from cold to warm found in Ottoman and Roman baths. The bath underwent a restoration in 2000–2001 and continues to be open to the public.
