Tortuga Pirate Bar
Baku’s premier pirate-themed pub is, well, in actuality Baku’s only pirate-themed pub. Named after the pirates’ island in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, this relative new-comer to the Baku ex-pat pub scene is a vision of pirate kitsch, complete with hand-painted mural replicas of the movie poster, walls bedecked in fishing nets filled with ships’ wheels, treasure maps and more skulls and crossbones than you can shake a stick at. The young, friendly and dynamic Azeri management run a bunch of events and specials throughout the week for their mixed Azeri and ex-pat crowd, including a daily happy hour, good food, pool competitions, live sports on big screens and much more besides. And, as if that’s not enough, most of the skull and crossboned chooch is on sale too. An appropriate souvenir of the Caucasus if ever there was one!
