Karaoke is big business in Baku and nowhere do they take it more seriously than at the Pride Lounge. Newly refurbished to celebrate its recent first anniversary, Pride is split across two floors. The ground floor is all sparkly midnight blues, deep purples and gunmetal greys, that twinkle under the lasers like a big old disco lounge. There’s even a stage with a spot rig controlled
by the DJ, so you can take your X Factor fantasy one step further and belt out a blinder with an audience. Downstairsis filled with outsized, stripy three piece suites and an alarming riot of red, orange and yellow floral print wallpaper. Pride promotes itself big, with special nights, such as the recent fashion and beach parties, weekly special cocktails,look out for fabulous watermelon or
mandarin mojitos and singing contests to win membership, which equates to discounted drinks and other perks, like priority in the queue to perform.
