Deep Blue Bar, The Bluestone And Us – 5 Years Down The Road

It was January 2010 when we first wrote about The Bluestone playing at Deep Blue Bar in Fethiye...and, well, haven't we all come a long way since then? Five years on, February 2015, and we were once again watching The Bluestone in Deep Blue Bar. The main part of the bar is now on the opposite side … [Read more...]

Scott Jeffers & Traveler World Music – A Deep Blue Bar Treat

Summer in Fethiye has kicked off with a bang for us - different groups of friends over from England all at the same time and the days merge into one. A backdrop to all of this was the Fethiye Culture and Arts Days which happens every year and just gets bigger and better each time. We were really … [Read more...]

Fethiye & Paspatur: Spotlight On Deep Blue Bar

We're always telling you about how new restaurants and bars are popping up in Fethiye, how existing places are being refurbished - or being knocked down and started all over again.

Cafe Park Teras, Fethiye – A True Terrace Bar Experience

Is Cafe Park Teras our favourite terrace bar in Fethiye? Well, having been enjoying its views and tipples since its opening in 2010, it's probably fair to say that that is indeed the case.

Beer Sipping in Rhodes Old Town – Cafe Bar Consolato

As we posted about the joy that is an icy cold glass of Efes Pilsen yesterday, and as it's the weekend, we thought we'd continue with the beer theme today. Unfortunately, Turkey is not renowned for its vast choice of beers and much as we enjoy a bottle of Efes (we drink from the bottle in summer … [Read more...]

Living in Turkey: Finding a Haven

We're bar people. You'll know that, anyway, if you read this blog on a regular basis... Wherever we are, we always find ourselves a little place; a haven where we can just sit, rest, feel comfortable with our surroundings, not worry about the outside world. We're no strangers to a few beers - we … [Read more...]

Dalyan – M&M Rock Bar

If you've ever been trekking on a crisp, sunny, winter's day and have found yourself trying to get back down the hills as quickly as you can because the light's fading, the temperature's falling fast...and you can see the village in the distance with the warm glow of twinkling lights from the local … [Read more...]

Istanbul – Istiklal Caddesi Haven – Baraka Bar

Wherever we've travelled to in our lives, we've always hunted out - or stumbled across - a bar where we feel comfortable; somewhere that feels local to the town or city we happen to be in. We're bar people (as you may know!) so we feel we know a city and it's people better once we find the right bar … [Read more...]

Live Music In Deep Blue Bar

We had an absolutely fantastic night last night (and another late one) at Deep Blue Bar. The band in the photo is Bluestone and we've watched them a few times now. Selçuk is an amazing guitarist who you've just got to see - trust us on that one! We think they're going to be playing at the bar … [Read more...]
