A stone's throw from Bosphorus, Alexandra proudly bears the title of the city's hippest cocktail bar, awarded by Istanbul's youth who love to gather there.
The establishment, all in woodwork and dim lights, is frequented especially at night, even if it serves breakfasts at the crack of dawn.
In the evening, behind the bar, bartender Osman Fethi lines up his recipes by the glass, including the Knock! Knock!, which is ordered by knocking on the counter twice.
Equally original, the rooftop offers a view of the Bosphorus so famous that the crowd is already rushing in the second it opens at 7:00 p.m. While waiting, go back downstairs and order a surprise cocktail whose preparation depends on the bartender's mood. On the weekends, DJs, including the unmistakable Yakuza, mix house sets, one after the other, until 3:00 in the morning. An evening hotspot in Istanbul, don't miss Alexandra!
