“Smell like rock spirit”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

It's located in an alley in front of the MANGO in Istiklal St.It's a quite small bar ,no entry fee ,cheap beverage ,the sound quality was not very well .The person who was wan in charge was a bit queasy( twiddle with chairs and tables continously)and make me really nervous.After all worth to try.

“Smell the rock”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Well, after the Roger Waters concert while the rock were still in our blood, we tried Dorock bar. It's quite small though enough space to get your drink and stand in front of the stage just one meter far from the band. Few minutes walking from Taksim square, makes it suitable for all rockers looking for a club in Istanbul to head-bang. The band at the time was not perfect, though they were young and passionate.

“Great atmosphere, great music!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Relaxed environment with friendly staff and great atmosphere. Started off with Epica, Lacuna Coil and some stronger stuff. Then came in a live show, and despite being labeled a heavy metal bar, the band doing covers did a bit of everything. They even played a "metal" version of a theme from Rihanna (not a fan, but great cover), amazing really. Then it turned towards more contemporary rock, great covers of Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo and other great hits. Went there 3 nights out of 4. :)

“Great place to hang out with good rockmusic and cheep beer!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I've spent my last two years in Istanbul and this is my absolute favourite place to hang out. Good rockmusic, cheep beer and some good coverbands in the evening!
I would recommend this place if you are into rock!
