We went to the Loti roof top for drinks, there was live music on and the atmosphere was very good. Views of the Bosphorus bridge and the Blue Mosque not to be beaten

I liked everything about this place. The view is absolutely worth spending a little more on a drink (or drinks), and the service and food were just fine to me. I'd take my friends here if I was back in Istanbul for sure.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
