La Boom

Sakıp Sabancı Caddesi No. 14A, Emirgan, Istanbul

This stylish bistro screams New York chic with décor reminiscent of a 1970s film set and low ceilings. But although it’s hip and has an interesting menu and an extensive drinks list, it is also instrumental in turning Emirgan from a charming fishing village to a place favouring parking valets and annoyingly repetitive house music. But if that’s your thing, come rub shoulders with the young, bright things after hours while sipping on champagne.
