Absolutely loved this bar set back off the main streets in Sultanahmet and easy to miss if you are not hunting for it. Large outdoor seating area and cosy indoor space with real fire. Friendly staff, excellent music, not cheap so be warned...we challenged the price of two glasses of wine and the price was adjusted straight away (and remained... More

We came in after dinner for drinks and instantly loved the vibe. It's a cozy bar with reasonably priced drinks. What put this place on the top is the bartender's dj skills. Awesome music! Thanks for putting us next to the fireplace. Welcomed warmth from the cold.

Our waiter, who was also the DJ, was great. Even though we sat on the very top floor-roof, he was still attentive and gave great food and service. The atmosphere is great downstairs, but this little place has the BEST view in the entire area. Sit in the roof-to, order a drink, food and a pipe and just enjoy...

This is a really nice place to have a few beers and/or smoke a nargile. Sah Bar has been my usual hangout every time I'm in Istanbul (5 trips and counting). The rooftop area has a spectacular view of Sultanahmet. There are also a couple of friendly cats that hang out there, which I found pretty cool. By far, however,... More

Found this place on trip advisor and it appeared to be a fun lively place. Went on a Friday night about half 7 and we were the only people on the roof top terrace which was nice, however a few cocktails later about 10pm we expected there to be more people and there were none. Don't be put off though,... More

Of all the restaurants I visited in Istanbul, this was my favourite. Not necessarily because of the food, which was great, but because of the utterly amazing view from the roof terrace. To say that it is a fantastic view is an understatement. From the roof you have an unhindered view of the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace, the Old... More

It's true that this place kinda hard to find (thanks to googlemaps i can find it), but Yunuz always stand in the alley and greets all people to come to Sah Bar, which is absolutely helpful as well. He helps me to pick food and drink there, the price was ok (it's really good price in Istanbul anyway). I tried... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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 retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
