Ehli Keyif was opened in early April 2011 as a gay-exclusive cafe & bar and its has been one of the major meeting point for local gay men living in Izmir since then. During the weekdays and on Friday nights it is open from 20:00 until midnight. On Saturday nights they can stay open as late as 04:00 a.m depending on how busy it gets and when the clients starts leaving. The venue is more popular among local gay bears and straight-acting gay men and the prices are very reasonable compared to other LGBT clubs in Izmir; around 3-5 $ for local drinks. The bar is located in historical shopping district Kemeraltı, not far from Konak square and famous Izmir Clock tower. Location at Google Maps is misleading. You can miss the entrance, as it is located in a very small, blind street the end of which connect to the open-air car park across from Salepcioglu Mosque. If you enter into the street from the car park, you can see the sign-board on the left. Location at Google Maps can be misleading. It is also very close to cruisy Turkish bath called Istankoy Hamam (Tarihi Kemeralti Hamam), so you can consider them as a package. Although the area where it is located is very busy shopping district in day time, it suddenly gets isolated after around 7 pm when all the shops are closed. You can feel a little insecure if you go alone trying to find it for the first time. So try to locate the place at an earlier time, if you can.
