Ulus 29 has become a fixture amid Istanbul’s rapidly changing nightlife scene. This place is here for keeps. Blessed with a superb location on the hilltop of Ulus, the venue boasts nigh-on unbeatable views of the Bosphorus. The interior doesn’t play second fiddle and is regularly revamped and updated. It’s a decidedly plush space but nothing quite prepares you for the outdoor terrace which houses the dining and lounging areas. The food both sushi and Turkish dishes and cocktails are inventive but people come here for the whole package, views included. The bar stays open until the early hours in the summer months so you can dance into the night.
