Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Pizza Holiday
However high-end your culinary tastes nothing beats a good pizza; and when a pepperoni-laden Italian staple backons there's nowhere better than Pizza Holiday to satisfy your cheesy cravings.
Olimpik Star Centre
Not sure what the difference is between billiards and pool? Don't worry a local will show you; billiards is big business here.
Mustafayev Art Museum
Like a pick 'n' mix from the art world the Mustafayev Museum houses just about everything. Just don't take any photos inside; you'll be kicked to the kerb.
Museum of Modern Art
Museum of Miniature Books
Baku wouldn't be Baku without a weird sight or three; the Museum of Miniature Books is exactly that with thousands upon thousands of - you guessed it - miniature books to lay your eyes upon.
M. Rasulzade St.
Slightly more high-street than surrounding areas but no less stylish. Snap up some cool clothes for back home.
International Mugham Centre
Celebrating Azeri Mugham - a traditional style of folk music - the International Mugham Centre isn't just a cultural masterpiece but an architectural one too.
Gyz Galasy Gallery
With a focus on 20th-century painting and sculpture The Gyz Galasy Gallery may not warrant a whole day out but is certainly worth an hour or two of your precious time.
Green Open Air Theatre
Now open again after 10 years is the Green Theatre the perfect performance space for the balmy summer months.
Duplex Café
With no soulless chains in sight the city is open to brilliant independent openings such as Duplex; and with a young crowd of hipsters there's nowhere cooler to sip your coffee.
Corner Bar
Rock chicks and biker boys return to the mothership at Corner Bar where heavy metal pumps out of the speakers and burly tattooed staff members flank the bar.
Chocolate Café
With five properties in its portfolio The Chocolate Café chain is picking up pace; the Husein Javid Ave branch is our personal favourite with a disco-style downstairs setting.
Café Balizza
Café Ballizza is all about fabulousness and fashion with lashings of style and a crowd of chic dressed-to-kill ladies-who-lunch.
