This is is Shanghai’s new Turkish / Xinjiang-themed café / music bar with Chef Muhammed Ahmed from Hulja, Xinjinag Province offering some of his hometown favorites like Turkish-style sandwiches, coban salad (shepherd salad) and traditional desserts like siker pare (sugar coin), alongside drinks like Uyghur milk tea and fresh pomegranate juice.
Aside from great food and wireless internet, at night Anar offers up a packed social calendar, complete with Monday movie nights, Turkish Happy hour Tuesdays, and open Turntables Wednesdays. Thursday though Saturday, you can expect to hear some of Shanghai’s finest disc jockeys playing all the platters that matter, ranging from funk, hip-hop, reggae, dance-hall and world music to disco, house, minimal and electro (to name a few). If that’s not enough for you, come by Sunday for a relaxing Pomegranate martini or an authentic Turkish coffee at Anar’s mp3 lounge night.
