'The Bar' was opened in late May 2013, by
owners Ibo and Farrah who have both worked in the Hisaronu
area for many years and are known to many and are
Always giving a warm welcome, and
trying to make every customer feel at home is something they work hard at.
'Arrive as a customer and leave as a friend' is their motivation... Indeed, many
customers return year after year and will often call in just to say 'hello' without necessarily buying a drink.
The Bar is situated on the quieter side of
Hisaronu on the Kaya Road. Although music is often played here, it's nothing
like the volume of music regularly played in several of the bars in the centre
of the village. So its a relatively 'quiet' bar with focus on relaxation.
A little TV sport is available
for those feeling energetic... however again this is low-key and doesn't spoil
things for those who wish to relax.
Special entertainment nights such as
'belly-dancing', 'fire-shows', a singer, or
quiz-nights are often arranged.
There is a variety of seating...
from the traditional upright bar-stools... small tables and chairs... or if you
feel like lounging, there are several settee-type seats for that very purpose...
giving The Bar a home from home feeling.
Apart from special occasions, food is
not normally served. However, if you would like Ibo and Farrah to host 'your'
special event, just give them a call on the number or FB contact link below. They will be delighted
to help. Even if you only want advice, then just give them a call. Nothing is too much trouble here... just
ask... you won't be disappointed!
The Hisaronu 'Village'
Forum members used to meet regularly here, and
arranged for a LIVE webcam to be installed,
but sadly the forum no longer exists. However,
the webcam remains and is usually 'live' in
the normal summer season. (Look for and click
on the 'camera' tag or icon on this page to
see what's going on, or what you are missing!)
In the evenings, we
usually turn on the 'sound', so you can hear
and experience some of the laughter, fun and
Whatever you choose to do at The Bar you'll have a great time and during the times the webcam is
'live' you can call your friends and family
back home and tell them to 'look-in' so you
can show them what they are missing!
So many customers
love The Bar... so much so that they regularly visit to
meet up with their friends old and new and
to catch up with the latest news and
gossip. Many have been visiting since
2013... so that in itself tells the story.
The Bar is an ideal place to
meet-up with friends or family. Never
rush... just take your time... and
Out of season...during those chilly winter
evenings (yes the sun doesn't always shine
in Turkey!), The Bar is open perhaps only
once or twice a week. However Ibo and Farrah
always make sure that their warm welcome is
matched by warm and cozy heating. You may
even experience a special 'curry' night to
warm you up!
The Bar offers a whole variety of
drinks. Whether you like a beer or a cocktail,
or perhaps a soft-drink, or just tea or
coffee... most drinks are available. Ibo will
do everything he can to provide the drink you
wish for... he may even disappear for a
couple of minutes to conjure-up some of the
ingredients he didn't have in stock!
You will always be made welcome at The Bar, and when the evening is over, if you've missed the last dolmus home, don't
worry, Ibo does a free drop off for his regular customers, once he gets to know you.
So, whether it's to be just a relaxing
drink, a sit-down and a chinwag with
friends... or perhaps a night of fun, dancing,
and singing ... or even a game of
backgammon... then The Bar is the place for you.
