Las Vegas on the Steppe
From my last visit, Almaty is turning into something of a nightlife centre. There are far too many places to visit to list them all here, and they change so rapidly it would kind of be pointless. However, probably the best place to start as a foreigner is Mad Murpheys or the Dubliner. Both consistently popular with ex-pats (so obviously pricey), but you should be able to pick up tips on where to go from there.Related to:

Russian pop music is really big at the discos. Of course the prostitutes do line some roads in the cities too! And the Kazakhs point them out and say, 'see, a big cow, and she won't even give milk'. Russian Wolfhounds were bred to hunt on the steppes. I have been breeding them here in the USA for about 25 years!
