The bar

With its wealth of cute eateries, funky shops and outstanding cafés, you would be forgiven to spend a whole day just eating, browsing and drinking your way around its upward and downward-sloping streets. So, while you’re at it, make sure to stop at Geyik Coffee Roasters and Cocktail bar at Akarsu Caddesi No.22/A.

This cozy little cafe slash bar serves an excellent choice of remotely roasted specialty coffees during the day and a smashing selection of outstanding cocktails at night. While the city gets moving in the morning, Geyik is a relaxed and almost inconspicuous, but come afternoon / night time and the place is packed with thirsty locals who spill out onto the street, literally transforming Geyik into the most happening place on the street.

Founded by Yagmur Engin and Serkan İpekli, Geyik is all about bringing out the most delicious flavours in our most favourite drinks. While Serkan focuses on sourcing and roasting fine single origin coffees, Yagmur is more concerned with the cocktails. Definitely try one of their pour overs in the morning and maybe the Rose tonic to cool down in the afternoon. Geyik won’t disappoint!
