Spring Surprise from Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul
2013-05-01; Le Fumoir Pavilion has extended to be closer to the Bosphorus
Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul’s chic bar Le Fumoir rapidly became the talk of the town after its opening in 2009 owing to its superb location, premium cognacs, quality malts, a fine selection of wines and champagnes, enticing cocktails and quality cigars served in handmade humidors, all served with a signature presentation style unique to Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul. This well ventilated posh bar has al fresco seating available and is located in the lush, green gardens of the Çırağan Palace and surrounded by palm trees with a splendid view of the Bosphorus. Guests simply love discovering the very best of Istanbul’s social life for pre- or post-meal socialising and enjoying the most comfortable setting in which to enjoy an early evening cocktail or the finest selection of spirits.
In the summer of 2012, owing to the General Manager Ralph Radtke’s fresh idea of an al fresco summer extension, Le Fumoir Pavilion was set up in the midst of the palm trees extending over the Bosphorus. It soon proved to be a “trending spot”, particularly among the young socialites of the city, as the “only place to have hookah in style” while enjoying the cool breeze of the Bosphorus.
This spring, Le Fumoir Pavilion is determined not to turn any of its guests down due to lack of space: thanks to high demand, management has decided to enhance the seating capacity by another 60 guests. Also, a new and exciting beverage menu is being introduced that will definitely be as marvellous as the Bosphorus view!
Le Fumoir is open from 17:00 to 1:00 every day.
Le Fumoir Pavilion is open from 12:00 to 1:00 during summer weekends.
