A Big Night Out in Istanbul – And A Big Breakfast the Morning After

Once a turn-of-the-century Italian school Cezayir (Hayriye Caddesi 12, Galatasaray, Beyoglu, is now a swish and sophisticated bar. On warm spring nights, head downstairs to the bar's gorgeous back garden. Limonlu Bahçe (Yeniçarsi Caddesi 98, Galatasaray) is a secret courtyard garden (spot the bar's tiny sign out front), where the city's creative types sip mojitos among the lemon trees.

Why party on the land when you can bob between two continents? Su Ada (Ferry from Kuruçesme waterfront park, is an artificial island floating in the middle of the Bosphorus. A stunner for aperitifs at sunset. Urban (Istiklal Caddesi, Kartal Sokak 6/A, Galatasaray, Beyoglu, is a hip neighbourhood bar in a beautiful old pastry shop.
