Tektekçi Bebek was opened in December 21st 2012, the last day of the world according to Mayan calendar; and started serving for those who want to try delicious shots in the privileged location of Bosphorus. Tektekçi Bebek has a pleasuring atmosphere in both summer and winter months thanks to its terrace; and it provides an unforgettable entertainment experience, combining cocktail shots, colorful ambiance and entertaining music. Tektekçi has many exclusive recipes in different categories, being Sweet, Bitter, Sour, Hard, Bitter Sour, Bitter Sweet, Ottoman Sorbets, Tektekçi-Make Vodkas, Non-Alcoholics and Frozens. These unique tastes are sometimes served in test tubes, jam jars, syringes, baloons, funnels, sometimes in the liquor bottles and glasses you see at your grandmother's, and sometimes in classic shot glasses.

tektekci is a great place to have fun with lots of different types of cocktail shots. smiling waiters and waitresses are trying to help you for the menu in the dark. even it's not a posh place, the shots are relatively expensive. mostly young people are dancing around but you can easily join the crowd. definitely will go there again!

We were casually dressed with jeans, it was saturday night, almost after midnight and we could go inside without a problem. Bodyguards in the entrance door was polite, they set a table for us. There is no entrance fee. In... More

After your dinner if you want to take some shuts before go anywhere suggesting to stop by... There is plenty of options. But warning :) do not try all of them... If its rainy outside you can get little bit stuck in side.

this place is the inventor of one shot cocktails. many came after them but nothing like the original, right? the staff, mostly university students are fast, cool and fun. the crowd is better than any other bars around. mostly preferred by young locals, artistic types, actors and cocktail lovers. especially at the weekends the crowd flows over to the street...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
