Baku is a city of contrasts, bright colours, fire and winds… This is the city where unhurried clerks and restless night clubbers come together. At night, the windy capital turns into a kaleidoscope of dynamically changing scenes, with the ability to attract anyone into the whirlpool of evening entertainment. Here, on the shores of the Caspian Sea, you can find one of the biggest night clubs in the region, and stars from all around the world who flock here to perform on the stage of the “Crystal Hall”, a venue equipped with state-of-the-art concert technology. Tourists from all over the world visit Azerbaijan to take part in such international events as the Eurovision Song Contest, the European Games, Formula 1 races and much, much more. The colourful streets of the capital light up with the welcoming signage of Baku’s numerous restaurants, cafes, pubs, wine-bars and other venues, inviting you to join in the party or enjoy a delightful gastronomic evening. 

 

What's more, the South Caucasus is thought to be one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world and Azerbaijan is no exception.  Following a decline linked to the Soviet anti-alcohol campaign of the mid-1980s, Azerbaijani wine is now bouncing back and wineries and wine bars are opening around the country.
