On the top floor of the Intercontinental Hotel located a few meters from Taksim Square, the Safran Restaurant is one of the finest in the capital with a very limited and exclusive space. Beside him, the famous City Lights bar, much more spacious and well known for its cocktails, has its spectacular views as its rationale. From here you can enjoy the sun falling on the Asian side of the city and also the mythical Golden Horn, the estuary which divides the city.
360 ISTANBUL Bülbül Mh. Mısır Buğdayı Sk N8
Speaking about 360 in Istanbul is almost like talking about the city itself. In recent years this multi-conceptual place has become the hot spot where you must necessarily go to see and be seen. 360 consists of a summer terrace, a bar and entertainment by some known DJ's, each room with its spectacular view of the entire city. The only problem is that they are so popular that is usually a pretty busy place every day of the week.
SEVEN HILLS HOTEL Cankurtaran Mh., Tevkifhane Sokak N8
Choose the place you like the most. Sit down, order a drink ... and now just watch: the Blue Mosque on your left and Hagia Sophia on the right side, can there be anything more impressive?
The terrace at Seven Hills Hotel in Sultanahmet (the historic center of Istanbul), boasts the most beautiful sunset between two of the main monuments of the city. Moreover, in the minutes that the sun sets over the city, this place is usually not too crowded, so the mysticism and magic of Turkey can be felt in comfort.
'Swissotel The Terrace' is an attraction in itself. Different and spacious levels with tables and private areas for every visitor with a modern decor, impeccable service and a restaurant and bar where you can have drinks and dinner with views of the Bosphorus and Istanbul. Certainly exceptional.
MOSAICO RESTAURANT Küçükayasofya Cad. N40
Also in the famous Sultanahmet area, close to the most popular mosques and on top of the boutique-hotel Eresin Crown that hides treasures and unknown ruins, is located one of the gems of terracing in Istanbul: Mosaic. Its exclusive environment contrasts with the crowded terraces usually found by tourists during their visit to the city. Eat or have a drink at Mosaic is different, relaxed and peaceful.
HORIZON RESTAURANT Dr. Imran Oktem Cad. N1
Although the views that can be obtained from tables at the Horizon Restaurant, located on the top floor of the Hotel Arcadia Blue, are not the most complete of the city, its special character and all the spectacle that one can find here is amazing due to its proximity to the Blue Mosque. Having dinner here is almost get immersed in the minarets of this beautiful mosque, probably the most spectacular on the outside of the 3000 that are spread across the capital.
LEB-I DERYA Asmalı Mescit Mh. Tünel Myd N6
Voted one of the top 15 bars in the world by the Sunday Times, the panoramic views of the night lights in the city with its eclectic and wood and white modern decoration is a delight for those lovers of typical trendy locals of the big capitals. A place to enjoy with friends and ... with cocktails!
