With stunning views of the Istanbul skyline, the Summit Bar and Terrace is the ideal spot for business lunches, after work drinks with colleagues or pre-dinner cocktails with your special someone.

Located on the 14th floor of the Conrad Hotel, this modern terrace will impress you with its beautiful views of the Bosphorus, friendly staff, delicious local cuisine and great cocktails. Open most of the day and well into the night, this sleek bar will make you want to stay for lunch, dinner and late-night drinks.

The cocktail menu is a nice mix of tried and true classics such as the Appletini or Moscow Mule and some original house creations. Looking for something refreshing? Opt for the Japanese Iced Tea, a delicate blend of Chivas Regal, citrus blend, tropical green tea and spiced syrup. The Tahona is another favorite, mixing spiced rum, mezcal, golden pear puree, citrus blend, lime juice and plum bitter into a zesty drink that packs an impressive flavor punch. Putting forward tried and true classics with a twist, the drinks offering is inspired and refreshing: nothing too analytical or pretentious here, simply brilliant combinations of interesting flavor profiles that prove that sometimes less is more. If you’d rather have a cocktail specifically crafted to your preferences, enjoy the bartenders’ impressive skills by asking for a custom creation. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will indulge you in style and whip up something delicious just for you.

On most nights, resident DJs and live music attract a hip local crowd coming to enjoy the views, the drinks, and mingle to the sound of electro and jazz tunes. Snack on some finger food and cheese platters while enjoying the sun setting over the city, and make plans to come back for the Sunday Turskish Breakfast: a fixture of this beautiful terrace, the impressive spread of local dishes and carefully selected blends of Turkish teas is worth coming back for. Pair your brunch with a local crisp white wine as you take in the swoon-worthy views one more time.
