I've been there for three times and I cannot wait to return. It's a great place: live music with great bands, non expensive beers and in an unbeatable location.

An excellent METAL venue - finally!
I came to Istanbul for Unirock, then didn't go as the bands I wanted to see cancelled. I started at another bar, met some people who recommended this one, and took me along. It was an excellent surprise: I read that it was '100% metal', but I doubted that. I was wrong.. it's an actual metal bar! playing metal! filled with metallers! I know there were a lot more people than usual because of Unirock, but many were regulars. It was a great venue with a great covers band playing, and a great crowd. Even got to hang out with Mayhem there! I am definitely going again ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE id=id; it's rare to find a venue true to metal.

Best metal covers band I've heard!!
I was there last night and a Turkish band 'Extinction' played a covers set. Amazing! Taksim is the best spot for nightlife and this is ideally located!

Top Place for Metal
This Place is 100% Heavy Metal, the live Bands playing there are extremly professional and on most evenings for free. If you want to hear Rock or RockMetal its not the right Place, but for Metal i guess it is the best in town!!

I looked for all the bars on this list and only found Dorock and Kemanci and i looked everywhere!! Simply put Dorocks staff are so friendly and welcoming it's like a metal bar should be! Great bands and 80s metal videos! Went to Kemanci when Turkey lost against ze Germana in Euro 2008, everyone was in the garden, place was dead and the staff not that nice! Plus they didn't have any Vodka so had to go out and buy some then the price came 18YLT which at the time was £9 for a Vodka and coke and a small beer! in Dorock the same round was 10YLT! And you got more Vodka, don't waste your money or time at Kemanci just rock the fuck out in DOROCK! Thanks for a great time guys!!www.myspace.com/klubrequiem

Very cool place and people. Nice cheap beer and for the girls: thumbs up for the turkish long haired dudes!! Concerts in the weekends, but starts a little late. Music is also nice, variated and with videoclips. Big place, plenty of room downstairs, upstairs and outside.
