Haci Emin Efendi Sok. 28A, Nisantasi, Istanbul, 34365, Turkey

features

Great cocktails

Blink and you'll miss this bar on a quiet side street in Nisantasi—unless you happen to pass by on a Friday or Saturday night, when the mostly Turkish patrons spill over onto the sidewalk. Efendi’s attraction: a friendly vibe, a soundtrack mixing modern urban and seventies soul, and top-notch cocktails. Try a spicy-sour Serendipity (fresh chili, passion fruit, lime juice, and tequila) or the strong Keep the Spice (Johnny Walker Black, rosemary-thyme infusion, orange bitters, honey, and lime juice), accompanied by a few pieces of sushi, a bar-food alternative to nuts, recently introduced by popular demand.
