After paying a visit to a regular rooftop bar and watching the tourist views of the city, join us at the Long Bar for tasty food with a Far East twist like the Thai beef satay with peanut sauce or spicy shrimp with garlic, and let yourself swing by the lively tunes and enjoy İstanbul nightlife at its best.
One perk of the Long Bar is the spacious outdoors, a rare feature in the city. Even the best rooftop restaurants may lack spacious outdoors however it is nice to go out on the large terrace and take in the fresh air, sip your drink silently watch the lively Istanbul nightlife, the glass skyscrapers, and the endless lights; the Long Bar terrace easily becomes a roof bar to enjoy the urban spirit of this historic city.
Once indoors again facing the stage, guests may choose from a variety of table options; if you feel like having a bite while taking time off to enjoy the live music, you may opt for a table. Bistros are also available for smaller parties. Whichever you choose, the idea is to have fun, enjoy life, enjoy the music and be together again.
