Features
Great cocktails, Modern style

Housed in a 1960s corner shop, Unter was a pioneer when it opened on a dark backstreet in Karakoy in 2012. It still draws crowds, especially on the weekends, when a DJ spins a playlist into the night. During the winter, regulars drift to the cozy second floor, where a fireplace heats the bar and seating area. In the summer months, folding glass doors open to create an indoor-outdoor bar flanked by exposed-brick walls and an open kitchen. There's a full menu and noteworthy cocktails like the Golddigger (gin, vodka, orange juice, and sparkling wine) or The Hulk (gin, lime, and cucumber juice)—throw in a charcuterie platter and you’ve got the perfect setup.
