There are days when you just need to kick back after a hard day’s work. You feel like sipping on a well-mixed cocktail and you want to do so in a laid-back environment. Meet Efendi, our new favorite cocktail bar.
With its small neighborhood bar vibe, the inviting atmosphere of people enjoying their drinks on the sidewalk and chatting, as well as its professionally made cocktails, Efendi is rapidly becoming Topağacı’s coolest destination. Owner Kıvanç Kasar (the dude with the hat in the photo below) and his team work hard to come up with 9 signature cocktails that you’ll love (our favorites are the Serendipity, Keep The Spice and Saint Paul de Vence). If you are of the less adventurous type, don’t worry, they also have 6 classic cocktails on the menu that you’ll surely recognize.
Finally, the scene wouldn’t be complete without a high-quality soundtrack. Again, Efendi does it right and you can expect a good selection of jazz, soul and funk to go with your cocktail.
Now talk to your neighbor, enjoy your drink and kick back.
