We were staying in Pera area and were lucky enough to have our evening ambles weave to this cozy and funky bar. Cocktails are beyond fresh, imaginative, and very carefully put together. Coming from Hong Kong, you’d only find this level at the very high...More

Down one of the side streets slightly tucked away is this great little cocktail bar. Good atmosphere and music as well as drinks.

Highly recommend this cocktail bar, they use egg whites in their Whiskey sours and large square ice blocks so your drink doesn't become diluted quickly. Will be coming back again. The bar's decor is set up old school with a modern twist.

Lovely setting and easy location to drink some fantastic cocktails. Incredible, surprising tastes as well as the classics are available. Everything is well presented and done with rest care. Found the atmosphere & service a little stiff but maybe that’s just me :)

Attention to detail, quality ingredients, creativity and passion. The place is small but warm, eclectic and welcoming. On a cold Wednesday night it wasn’t very crowded, music playing in the background. I enjoyed it very much!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
