Owner description: 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.

“A nice piece of Bebek nightlife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Ended up at Tektekci quite by chance, while looking for a place to drink something hot after a long late night walk by the Bosphorus. It is in a very central spot, near the Bebek bus stop, with a few lovely terraces overlooking the boulevard and the park. There were no hot drinks on the menu, since it is a ''shot bar'', but we decided to stay anyway because of the lovely vibe of the place, with its chill out music and dimmed bluish lights.
The menu was entirely in Turkish, but the staff were extremely friendly and readily translated most of it for us - there is a variety of sweet, sour, sweet-sour, hot, strong etc. shots. I had a sweet strawberry flavored one, while my friend had a spicy one with wasabi (1 small shot is approximately 8 TL). We were both happy with out choices. Recommended!

“My faivorit bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Tektekci is a very wonderful place in Istanbul. The bar is a little small, so Everybody stay in the street and enyoj the music and get to know each other. Service is friendly, shots are great. I visit it all the time when I'm in Istanbul.

“Fun place to get the party started”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

This place serves shots and that's it. Said shots are tasty, come at a reasonable price and in all the colors of the rainbow. Staff is friendly and music nice. Note that this is not a place where you go clubbing, but to hang out with friends and get up to speed for whatever the night may hold.
