The Ritz-Carlton hotel recently celebrated the re-opening of its terrace bar, Bleu. Bleu is located just off of the hotel’s Summer Park Terrace. While it was previously only open for the summer months, it will now be available year-round. The décor is very modern and minimal, while the atmosphere is cool and chilled-out thanks to the lounge music and scenery. With a view over the Bosphorus towards the Old Town, forest greenery on one side, and a wall full of beautifully-scented jasmine blossoms on the other, Bleu is a great place to enjoy an al fresco drink in the summer months, or catch a breath of fresh air and enjoy a drink under the stars, even in the winter.
