    PLEASE NOTE: Often listed as U.S.S.R. Pub in guidebooks.

    Do you remember those fantastic basement bars in college/university with loads of character(s), cheap beer, good times and not much else? This is the bar in Baku for you! I was in the Soviet Union when I was a student, and it was never as fun as this bar. I was welcomed with open arms by 2 attractive ladies, the cat and later the manager. Great people – great beer – great prices.

    The bar has lots of old Soviet memorabilia on the walls and ceilings. They also have flags donated by visitors like me – and a VT Flag is on its way to them. Mixed in with uniforms and foreign money on the walls is a pool table and plenty of places to sit and get smashed.

    The manager spoke to me about the history of the bar, what they served and about general Baku life. A great man.

    I really enjoyed my evening here. It was the best night out I had in Baku.

    Make sure you make the trip! Your wallet will appreciate it.

    Baku: Corner basement discotheques

    by Megaforce Written Oct 1, 2006

    I was pulled down into a place called the Tunel just north of Fountain Square, but it wasn't really happening and I wanted to keep wandering so I didn't stay. Baku's discos tend to be in basements on streetcorners. At one particular intersection I noticed one on each corner. I'm told that the big hotels have pretty good discos but many of the women there are there for commercial reasons, other less resectable websites discuss this aspect of the city in detail.

    Neon Club: Dance till you fall

    Let me first tell you that there are almost no night clubs or discos anywhere except Baku. So if you wanna go dancing and clubbing, stay in Baku :))) Neon is a cool club located in the heart of Baku. It's small but very stylish. Every weekend they'll have a party there with different themes and entrance isn't expensive. Drinks aren't overpriced either. The only thing is - if you don't like smoke (like me) you won't stay longer than an hour. The ventilation isn't very good so the smoke gets into your eyes :-(

    Dress Code: There's no special dress code for Neon but you'll find that people in Baku like to look fancy when going out at night. So judge for yourself...

    A game of nardi, anyone?

    Finding your way back to your hotel room during a powercut without a torch was more than enough excitement for me!! Seriously though, there is no nightlife to speak of, apart from at the Kervansaray Hotel in Sheki, where the restaurant stays open until electricity cuts out...they sometimes have live music, otherwise it will be Turkish pop music and playing nardi (backgammon). elsewhere, your best bet is a chayxane (teahouse) where you can drink tea and play nardi...take books, headphones and a torch!
