There's nothing great to write about this bar, except that it offers great views of the sea, with open dining and average music. If you are staying at Marriot Polat Renaissance (right next door), it would be less expensive to dine and drink here.

This bar is right next to the Polat Renaissance hotel down by the sea in the Bakirkoy area (Google maps misplaces it by a couple of blocks so take note). Pretty close to the airport. We came here on a Champions' League big game night and were not disappointed. We got seated in front of the giant screen and got... More

Small bar but very spacious and comfortable. Staff is helpful and nice but does not speak English much. There are pool tables and some old game consoles ( doubt if this are used). Decor is quaint on sport championship theme. Super. Reasonable prices and food to go with your drinks.

It's located near to airport(belongs to Polat Hotel). Food is delicious.Tourist friendly place with a great sea view. Great place to watch football games and drink beer. Pitchers platter is a must have from the menu!

I don't like sports bars in general but they served a good Caesar's salad. We were at a nearby airport hotel overnight and this restaurant was across the street.

On a business trip in October after a late arrival we went here, adjacent to our hotel the Renaissance You could tell it was off peak as the place was deserted, but don't let that put you off. The burgers were good, good choice of beers and some unrecognised Turkish football teams on the big screen

I went there to get a good American salad. Ordered one that sounded, was called, a Caeser Salad. Tasted like it was pulled out of a plastic dish made a week before. I left without being able to eat it.
