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.
