La Boom is a stylish and hip Istanbul watering hole, comprised of a bistro, restaurant, cafe, and bar all rolled into one. This multi-faceted venue offers stunning views of the Bosphorus from the outdoor seating areas on the ground floor and the balcony. Inside are smart chairs and tables bedecked with striking single-flower displays and lounge areas with unique a decor of purple and pink ottomans, green chairs with decadent mirrors, and modern art on the walls.
The menu is equally decadent, with upmarket international offerings including lobster starters, schnitzel, steak, grilled salmon, and shiitake mushrooms with sea bass. Breakfast is available until 2.30pm each day and on Sunday the brunch buffet (served between 9am-4pm) is popular with the trendy Istanbul set who come to enjoy the fresh breads, homemade jams, charcuterie plates, cheese varieties, omelette bar, and much more. The terrace is a great place to enjoy meals at any time of the day, with a beautiful view of the water, and it is equally designed to soak up the evening sun while sipping on one of the excellent cocktails.
As the sun sets and night creeps its way along the shores of the Bosphorus, the music gets louder and the festivities begin. A hotspot for the party crowd on the weekend, La Boom is 'the' place to be seen in the Emirgan neighborhood. This stylish venue usually attracts a younger crowd who can afford the expensive prices and who come to enjoy flashy company as the DJ spins music until the early hours.
From the İTÜ-Ayazağa metro station or İstinye Park shopping center, take transport along the main road İstinye Bayırı Caddesi. La Boom is on the far side of Emirgan Park, on the waterfront.
