Celebrating its first birthday in March 2010, Baku’s premier nightclub, Face, has added a splash of Muscovite glamour to Bakuvian nights out. With an excellent, if expensive, nouvelle cuisine menu in the upstairs restaurant; glam interior and lighting design; boomingly clear sound and a suitably snooty door policy, it really is like Moscow at its nouveau heights. They even stop the music and play Eye of the Tiger when someone splashes out 1,100AZN for a bottle of Cristal. Cover charges are complex and, for a foreigner, can range from nothing to 60AZN but are usually around the 20-30AZN mark. We would advise calling ahead, fixing a price and getting your name on the door. If sitting, there is a minimum spend per table of 100AZN and 10AZN per person service, which equates roughly to a bottle of imported spirits, mixers and perhaps a shot or 3 on the side. Again, tables are best reserved ahead, while bar-space is free. Face also plays host to some of the coolest acts in town, recent live hows have included Moscow’s premier hip-hop act Basta and a range of jazz-fusion and electronica artists, mainly from former Eastern bloc countries.
