Buz Bar on Buz AdaThe Kurucesme party extends to the Buz Bar a pool/bar floating in the Bosphorus. It’s immensely popular during the summer.A floating pontoon off the nightclub and bar strip of Kuruçesme, Buz Ada (ada means island) is technically owned by Galatasaray Sports Club. With the pool culture vibe in full swing in the summer months, this is purely a get-glam and fun venue. Traipse along the boardwalk clad in your latest Eres suit as you peruse the 360-degree view of the Bosphorus from this central locale on the water. The decor is tastefully contemporary and chic, with a touch of neutral elements. The recent introduction of a swish bar complete with pool has transformed it into a trendy hangout, which is immensely popular during the summer, unsurprisingly given the perverse attractiveness of swimming in, or lounging by, a pool that floats on the Bosphorus.
