Joker 19 is a lovely modern urban bar with great music and vibrant atmosphere. Great selection of craft beers and delicious snacks. But what completely blew my mind was the variety of amazing cocktails, so delicious and well balanced, it was pure enjoyment. The barman...must be a genius here. The one cocktail I particularly recommend is Pompei Negroni, a true masterpiece of its own, smells like burnt rubber and tastes like a very expensive cigar. Bravo!More

We've been going to joker 19 since last year, me and my friends, and its one of the best place to spend a nice evening in. The people there are great, the staff and the bartenders do a lot of nice cocktails and the environment...is super nice and chill, with all the beautiful music that they play and you'll meet a lot of new friendly people from different nationalities and culture. We actually go there every weekend now, and personally i don't mind it,i love it.More

Went here one night, doesn't look much from the street but is large and open inside. Cocktails were great bar was buzzing recommend the negroni's/great gin menu too. Whole area full of bars/restaurants nice atmosphere non-threatening and very relaxed would recommend this part of Besiktas...and 15min walk from Conrad if you staying there.More

We found this place by following a group of random young locals, and it ended up being a great decision to start out our night in Besiktas. Even though it was early, the bar was buzzing with upbeat music and plenty of people- both in...the indoors and outdoors(smoking area). The indoor area was almost split by the bar and had two different types of seatings - regular ones with bar stools and chairs for those who want to be secluded and long wooden tables and backless benches for a more community feel. One thing that stood out to us in particular was that all their 19 cocktails were extremely unique. We hadn't ever heard of any of them before, but they all had a vague description so you knew what you were choosing. We would definitely recommend popping into this place at least for one drink!More

Great location and very good atmosphere overall. Also, there were a couple of dogs which was so cute.

It's located near to Dolmabahche palace, Beshiktash. We came at around 5pm, there were enough place to sit. I liked the food: salad with chicken and pasta with salmon, very delicious. Nice ambience, music, friendly staff.
