“Unexpected fun at unexpected cool roof top bar”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Late nite, what to do? Let's go to Balkon says our turkish friend and so we did. Very cool place with an even cooler view. Once you manage the stairs which appears quite dangerous in an old building you end up at this super cool roof top bar!. I recommend it . So great and a lot f fun!!!

Excellent little roof top bar in Istanbul, up some dingy stairs in an old building off a lane. well priced for the views. Didn't try the food.

“Best rootop bar ever!”
Reviewed 9 April 2013 via mobile

After one week of Istanbul a local friend introduced us to the best of all rooftop bars and Balkon was the best experience of our whole stay! The view is stunning and the atmosphere is inspiring! Best alternative rooftop bar ever!
