After a hard working day my friend - a local Irkutsk citizen brought me to the Irkutsk Musical Theater in the name of Zagursky to watch a performance by famous Russian actor Mikhail Kazakov on the poems of Joseph Brodsky accompanied with saxophone music.
We spent a pleasant evening there.

There are much more clubs than it writen about here.
the AKULA - is a club, bowling and pizzeria near Angara with often night erotic dance shows. This place is also called "First scandal club". Maybe for its streap parties, maybe for that a police find a drugs and exstazy in this club very often.
the "Object 01" - is a club with 2 dancefloors and not very expensive price for drinks. It's a danceclube. But sometimes here is a place for hardcore and hip-hop parties. Object 01 has a reputation as sub-underground place.
the Senator, the Wild Horse (Dikaya Loshad') and Parisclub is a places for rich people.
the "Megapolis" is a club for all. There are also 2 closed zones insed it : 'Zima Project' dancefloor and Chill-out. Before summer 2009 Chill-out of this club was a main place of Irkutsk gay meetings. But new clubs managers choose to stop it. Now in Irkutsk it waits for opening a new gay club - the Vogue.
the RAZGULOFF - includes dance club, restaurant, bar and catheteria for all categories of people.
the Barracuda - one of newest club in Irkutsk.
the Moda Club - is a place for sub-private parties. Early the visitors could dance on tables and the barwood and make love with them friends. But now this place is under mask of respectability and those events usally do not happen.
I didn't say about all clubs. But in Irkutsk there are many place for entrtainment. You can find all styles and all kinds of night establishment here.
Cultural-entertaining complex "Panorama" one of the greatest centers of entertainments of Irkutsk. It is located practically in city centre and contains up to 1200 person. The complex is issued in style "high tech". The club represents three-level club space with two isolated dancings, 6 bars, cafe "Chocolate", a banquet hall "the Seventh sky", summer terrace and a parking.
Music style: commercial house, r`n`b, russian and euro pop

I'm a little too old to fully enjoy the nightclub scene, but my friend, Will, dragged me out to this place. I was expecting a Soviet style drab run-down kind of establishment, but I was taken completely by surprise. It's modern and large; has good decor, good lighting and sound systems, and well-separated areas. On the dance floor stage were professional dancing girls.
Outside of the dance floor is the bar scene, which is spacious and has modern decor. There were actually scantily-clad cigarette girls handing out packs of smokes as part of a promotion campaign, Marlborough I think.
Entering was interesting for me: a metal detector backed up by huge hulking guards dressed in army camouflage and carrying submachine guns. I left after a few, but Will stuck it out until closing, around 03:00.
Dress Code: Smart casual.
The whole complex of entertainments on any taste: the unique bouling-centre in city, restaurant of Italian kitchen "Marcipano", a casino, a bar and a disco - all in in one night club "Stratosphere". Days of work: - since Thursday and till Monday - it is possible perfectly will have a rest!

Entry fee was about 300-500 rubles, bowling alley for 1000 rubles / hour / line. Big dance floor with beautiful women :) Totally recommended.
