Dorock & DorockXL
"There are two Dorock bars one in Taksim and the new DoRockXL in KadД±kГ¶y which is quite bigger and has a concert hall. There are some cool concerts in the hall both popular music and rock/metal. There are nice food selections and drinks to choose from and large halls to sit outside and inside. They smoke in the closed area though, if you're not into that beware. Music both in Taksim and KadД±kГ¶y is OK. They play rock and metal but you rarely hear extreme sounds like death/black metal. The place is usually too crowded and noisy though you can't enjoy the music."

100% Metal? I dont think
"Granted it was daytime mid week, but I went there for a couple of beers while pub crawling. Any bar that plays Nickleback cant be called a metal bar. This place played 5, yes five, Nickleback songs in a row, followed by Pink! Go to Rasputin which is on the next street towards Taksim."

"I Love this Metal-Pub! Everytime if i stay in Istanbul, i got to there... perferct atmosmphere, good live-bands!"
On 21 Jul 2012 By drummeretteNot too shabby!
"Pretty good venue - they did play great tunes, and the venue itself is very catchy. Although, the crowd was certainly not as friendly, and the bar staff didn't speak English very well, it was hard to communicate to even get a proper drink, and cocktails are also a little pricey, i'd reccomend sticking to the beers. Although, the bar itself is very nicely decorated with a cute little terrace and nice videos to compliment the music. I'd rate it 3/5. Alternatively, there is the "Zurich" bar just across from it, which plays much more mainstream music symphonic metal, with much friendlier bar staff, and they take music requests also. Oh, you can smoke inside, too! However, i'd reccomend checking both of these places out, it depends on your taste in atmosphere and music, really!"

"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."
On 10 Sep 2011 By hellespontAn excellent METAL venue
"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; it's rare to find a venue true to metal."
