Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Adam’s Sports
While we wouldn't usually recommend you go to an ex-pat boozer Adam's Sports is the exception with a crowd of larger-than-life Brits and sports shown on larger-then-life screens.
ALZ Club
Dark and moody décor-wise basement-based ALZ Club serves up expertly-mixed cocktails and shishas to a cool crowd of club kids.
Arabesque
Dubai style is a-go-go at Arabesque with the kind of fabulously flamboyant interiors that would make Elton John's very own boudoir seem tame.
Azza Bar
Panoramic views are just the beginning at Azza Bar; perched atop the ISR Plaza building this elegant watering hole serves up a hip party atmosphere against a backdrop of jazz.
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.
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.
Finnegans
Get a bit of Irish in you at Finnegans Baku's signature Irish bar. What city doesn't have one?
Kill Bill
Aside from Uma Thurman serving you drinks, Kill Bill has everything expected of a bar inspired by Tarantino's cult classic.
Kishmish
Tea may be quintessentially British but that hasn't stopped Kishmish from trying to outdo London Town with over 150 varities on offer; cool cocktails and decadent décor adds weight.
Konti
Sharp-suited white collar types prop up the bar at Konti a smart bar just a Prada-soled step away from the offices at the Landmark building the British Embassy and Government House.
L’Atelier
Living Room 1
Step into the boudoir at Living Room 1 which takes intimacy to a whole new level; expect dark decadent surroundings a crowd of cool creative types and Indian fusion snacks on the bar menu.
Mesa Lounge
Bright young things are drawn to Mesa Lounge like moths to a very fabulous flame; Japanese and European menus combine with sumptuous Spanish-esque interiors for a very alluring venue indeed.
Red Olive
Dripping chandeliers and gilt-framed mirrors abound at Red Olive a favourite of both smartly-dressed cool cats and casually thrown-together club kids
Shakespeare
As you'd expect of a pub named after England's most famous playwright The Shakesepare is a British pub in the heart of Baku. End of.
Shark
Ex-pat pubs aren't usually high on our to-do list but we'll make an exception for The Shark; managed by an Azeri and a Brit it attracts both local and English boozers.
The Brewery Pub
Get your hands around a pint of homemade ale at Brewery Pub; be sure to line your stomach first with some of the deliciously plump sausages on the menu.
The Lounge
We've never seen someone's living room look quite as plush as Lounge - all velvet drapes and polished wooden tables - but it still tries to recreate homely look.
The Old Forester
If you like your pubs old sprawling and bedecked with quintessential British style then the Old Forester is your man. So to speak.
Tortuga Pirate Bar
Those looking for a pirate-themed pub can call off the search; Tortuga Pirate Bar has all your piratey needs met with Disney-esque interiors and a fun-hungry crowd.
Victor’s Bar
Chill-out tunes and casual cocktails make up the vibe at Victor's Bar the crowning glory of the Park Inn Hotel. Rest relax and reflext stunning views of the cty unfolding before you.
