Can get absolutly avant-garde, esp. weekends. Different programs on different days. Newly decorated as the name suggests: (Bar-bahce = Bar-garden) . The manager is a beautiful young guy, but I'm afraid he's occupied nowadays. No entrance fee. Weekends and wednesdays they remove the gates for more space, therefore wear something light. Might sponatenously turn into a dance floor.
Update 0802: The manager has just left the place and instead opened a beauty parlor on the fourth floor of the same building. The other factors still apply. The new manager is bartending too. Great looking waiters.

Incredible atmosphere, on a wooden platform built on the sea, 180 degree panorama of the Bosphorus. Packed and a queue outside on weekends after 2 AM. Since it is an open air venue, it is only for the summer, and won't be open in the winter. Trendy boys with short pants and muscled guys with only jeans on are abundant. The DJ playing after 2 AM has a magnificient set, ranging from techno to underground.

Report 0202: The furnisihing is reminiscent of the Parisienne club Prive. Quite lively place, especially on weekends and wednesdays. Reasonable entrance paid. The guy who runs the place (Omar) is about 35 and truly hyperactive and exhilirating guy. He will most probably be waiting outside the door to welcome his guests. The club boasts occasionally some quite renowned guests such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo, Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn, and Madonna's dancers (I am a witness to that).

Sweet cafe with minimalistic decoration. Quoting the local magazine "a damn good cafe, an extensive menu of food and a wide selection of high quality, low priced drinks". The upstairs lounge has some comfortable cushions for relaxing. Or you can sit outside watching the passers-by.

3pm-2am
Grayreport: The hours of operation vary - at the whim of the staff, who are rather terrible - they really wish to rip ypou off for a massaage and expect exhorbitant tips, which you eventually knock down to two or three million!! Then all the staff around the door on the way out expect payment for non-provided services, except for a sprinkle of rose water! It is rather grotty, very few Grays present - just me really on the two occasions I was there, with lecherous turks who wished to insert things into me! No protected sex and it is rather dangerous, but if you struggle and get away they take that as a 'No"!
Cruising is difficult, unless you like filthy toilets, eastern style, as the massage providers patrol the place hoping you will take another massage!
The massages are good, but you have to keep their fingers from entering certain parts of your anatomy! One really does not know where they already have been, but can gues!! Low in elegance.

KÖSK HAMAMI

Gray :25% Admirer :40% Elegance 5 Cruise 8
Kosk was easier to find, but I was the only Gray and it was not well patronised - I got the impression they would be busy during the day, not at night. Anyone with any appearance was after money and the massage men were very difficult as to their service fee!!
Report: July 2002
Kosk Hammum was fun during the day I think around lunch and mid afternoon. You have to listen for the door because the attendant comes thru every once in a while and wants your groin covered and your thongs on. Other then that it was fun.

Cruising Area
Taksim Park the bosphorus side day and night.
Around Mc Donalds in Taksim Square
Fairth Park - across from the Fatih Statue where the ruins of a roman jail are. Mostly middle aged and old gay man with moustache
