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!

Tektekçi is famous for its cocktail shots. It is not a fancy, posh club but creative and fun for sure.
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 Istanbul, entrance fee is usually a must to keep the bar "elegant", especially for women to have fun and dance properly!
There are many shot options, I found it very confusing. It was difficult to see and choose in the dark, also it was almost impossible to ask for a recommendation to the waiters with that loud music. They did not seem very eager to help us to choose either. The attitude towards our confusion was polite and patient. They served nuts free of charge, without asking for it. Anyway, we were 4, so we chose sour-sweet mixed cocktail shots for 4 . 5 shots for each of us, total of 20 shots. We paid 180 Turkish Liras in total. Our choice was not bad, yet I still feel like we could go with something else.
They play up-to-date, popular dance music. If you don't hate dancing it is almost guarenteed that you will enjoy your time and dance :)
I really liked this place and I certainly recommend it if you feel like dancing and trying new drinks:)

I was mad when I found this place 2 nights before I was leaving istanbul. It made my trip. The atmosphere is great, nice young crowd of 20 something's, mostly Turkish and the DJ is great. It gets packed pretty early and getting in could be a problem unless you give the door man a nice tip. They have a good selection of shot flavors that aren't cheap, but is worth it. I'd recommend this place to any tourist wanting to have a good time with a young Turkish crowd but with pretty diverse music.
