Living Room 2
On the site of the former Le Mirage – Baku’s one and only self-proclaimed gay club, that was shut down in 2009 due, oddly, to the apparently unseemly behaviour of the women who frequented it, rather than anything lewd the boys may have got up to, Living Room 2 is the rather unimaginatively named second outfit from the guys at Living Room 1 (see Drink). Again, the interior design concept is over the top Bakuvian boudoir, with leopard print and gold set against scarlet and smoked mirrors. Like its sister bar, it’s super-friendly and, again, like its sister bar, also gay-friendly. Living Room’s cocktails may be a little rough around the edges, but the atmosphere is top-notch. There is a regular Mafia game (see Play), live music on Saturdays and a DJ the rest of the weekend, playing upbeat tunes. Look out for notices outside and posters around town about forthcoming events and specials.
