The core urban regeneration project gives a new lease to the old warehouse and workshop of a former industrial site, located west of Baku bay. The building dates from 1961 and was originally a light mechanical repair and maintenance workshop (atelier) for boats during the Soviet era. ATELYE 61 includes two dining floors and seasonal patio garden.


Ground floor dining – ATELYE CAFÉ


A cosmopolitan cafe from late morning till late night serves venetian cicchetti; the hot kitchen is anchored by a huge wood oven to prepare the best pizzas in town.


Ground floor – BAR “Vostok 61”


The bar is set up from a specialized drink-making atelier. An innovative coffee atelier uses spectacular equipment with infra-red technology and lever steam pressure. Chilled draft beer on tap is served in ice containers of various sizes, including tall towers for lager parties. The terrace operates seasonally, with aromatic shisha, prepared on a special blacksmith mobile forge, completed with charcoal sparks.


Upper floor dining – ATELYE BISTRO


A vintage-urban bistro serves high quality comfort food from Venetia.


Upper floor – BAR "Zapad 61"


To complement the catwalk bar, there is wine, rum and whiskey cellar, glazed on three sides and ceiling. The bar offers a large selection of regional Italian wines by the glass, as well as special cocktails and artisan grappa. The creative aperitivo list has unique twists on Italian classics such as Negroni, Bellini and Sgroppino.
