Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Zarifa Aliyeva St.
Another high-end have selling cutting-edge fashion for style mavens.
Zakura
Bite-sized tapas dishes are served with Bakuvian bite here at Zakura; interior design by London-based Blue Sky Hospitality adds to its flare.
Wine City
Imported wine don't come cheap but that doesn't seem to matter to those who flock here for wine outside of the region.
The Grill
Tucked inside the Hyatt Regency The Grill offers blood-loving carnivores steak and style under one ceiling rose-covered roof.
Terrace Garden
Proving once and for all that size doesn't necessarily matter the Sultan Inn's Terrace Garden seats just 24 and offers the kind of intimate atmosphere usually reserved for a dinner party.
Taze Bey
Who wouldn't want a massage with Roman Centurions and deer antlers abounding?
Scalini
Scallini is Baku's signature eatery; perenially popular it serves up innovative Italian fare in casual laid-back surroundings. No wonder Pierce Brosnan eat here while in town.
Opera Lounge
Loungier than Face but every bit as glamourous - if not more in places - Opera Lounge has clubbing all wrapped up with in-house dining and music from big-name DJs all under one roof.
Occo
Occo is the kind of restaurant you could imagine featuring on the gorgesouly glossy pages of Wallpaper* magazine; decadently designed it certainly knows how to wow with inspiring interiors and elegant European cuisine.
Neftchilar Avenue
Label lovers can't get enough of this shopping district brimming with shops selling their designer wares.
Mesa Lounge
Four Seasons Baku
Set on the Caspian Sea, the Four Seasons Baku offers stellar service, incredible amenities and an unparalleled stay in the capital of Azerbaijan.
Excelsior
Aside from its rockstar-worthy Imperial Suite and God knows how many other well-appointed guest rooms The Excelsior has more amenities than you can shake a very large stick at. Check in and check it out.
Chinar
As Baku's most-anticipated new club opening Chinar has a lot to live up to. Thankfully it does with opulent interiors fabulous food and an impressive sound and lighting system.
Beluga Bar
You don't need to stay at the Hyatt Regency to enjoy its in-house bar - and many of those who frequent Beluga Bar don't. Which is a good sign we assure you.
Aziz Aliyev Street
You can always go Downtown as Petula Clark put it - and that's exactly what those seeking international brand names do in Baku.
Aristocrat
While it's interiors may look like Donatella Versace has thrown up all over the place Aristocrat offers inspiring Italian cuisine to a chic crowd of well-dressed diners.
28th May Street
High-end is the name of the game on this street. The highlight? Why a flagship J-Lo store of course.
