NoKu is not just a regular drinking spot, but a bar with history. It was created during the Soviet times by artists as a reaction to another artist’s bar Kuku which had a strict admission policy.
This was the place where artists and other culture related people gathered for a drink. NoKu was closed to the public and you had to have a card to get in or sneak in with people who went out for a smoke. Now it is open for everybody but with a 2580 code at the door (use it wisely and with respect). You cannot miss the beautiful blue-red door on Pikk street.
It is situated on the second floor, two spacious rooms with heavy vintage furniture and wooden benches. I like it for the ’70s vibe and warm dusky light. The food is regular, but I enjoy just having a drink with my friends in the calm atmosphere more.
