The bar consists of an outdoor patio hidden among trees, as well as a small pool, and few fire escape type stairways leading to balconies above. There are tables, but most of the seating is found on the large pillows and beanbags strewn about the ground. These are great for relaxing with a drink, cuddling up with a date, or for a relaxing evening with a group. In the background chill alternative music such as Radiohead plays in the background. Arka Bahçe is the perfect place to kick back and waste away the night drinking and chatting with friends. A true treasure in the heart of Istanbul.
Also, a quick side note, the Sunday brunch is quite good as well.
