"The Shell": Outdoor Salsa Dancing
summertime, and the livin' is easy.. (lyrics from Gershwin)
well, indeed easy, but also it can be very hot :) so it's time to move to the beach, or at least closer to the river. Kyiv salseros are no different in their desire to get some fresh air and cool down. so they move close to the river (not forgetting to take a pair of dancing shoes and a boom box) to the place called "Rakushka" (the Shell, called after the shell-shaped roof).
salsa dancing starts at 21:00 on Fridays. on Saturdays, at the same time, this place turns into melonga.
located in the Mariininsky Park, on the right bank of the Dnipro river, the Shell is an open-air stage for summer concerts (on Sundays, you can enjoy free classical or jazz concerts).
One of the good clubs in the centre of city.
House music. Famous DJ's.
Entrance price about 100UAH ($20). What i like the most are walls made of glass and girls and boys, who having shower the other side of it. Looks really exciting..Open every night with a different theme party from disco to house music and r&b
SHOOTERS: Best place to relax, have a shot, and dance till m
For several years, this place remains one of the favourite among Kiev people and tourists. Shooters is not too cozy, very democtatic, and very friendly. There are no poeple evaluating you by your dress as it happends in some clubs. Besides, Shooters is a coplex with Limoncello restaurants (by the way, would like to say compliments to chef - very good kitchen), Shooters disco, and Garem lounge with lots of huge pillows and nice music.
Dress Code: There are no particukukar dress code, but face control will meet you just at the entrance.
DECADANCE HOUSE: want to show how cool you are?
this is more place to show up than to dance. Very popular though and prestigious. You can often meet celebraties here, or famous clubbers. Politics, their children, businessmen, models... If you want to relax and have fun with your friends it is not the best place.
However, in the afternoon and evening, DECADANCE HOUSE works as a restaurant with quite good food. So you may come for dinner and stay there.
I do not like this place. I come to a club to relax and not to show my new shoes or sunglasses.
Dress Code: latest fashion collections will be just appropriate for this place :-)
Caribbean Club: PARTY 7 days a week
this place is unique not only because it is one of the oldest clubs with Latino/R&B music, but also because it is full 7 days a week. If other clubs maybe empty during the week (except SHOOTERS), the CARIBBEAN is always full of dancing smiling people. Every friday and Saturday till 1 a.m. plays live music.
112: REAL DISCO
It opened in the center of the city almost two years ago and became one of the hottest places on the map of Kiev's nightlife.
it is probably the only one place in Kiev where real DISCO is played. Always crowded, lots of fun, lots of friends around.
Dress Code: face control
Shooters!!: Three for One!
Shooters is a blast! First of all, it is a Restaurant, a lounge and a great disco. You can spend the entire evening there. I don't know what time the place closes, but the few times I have been there it was still rockin at 4am!! Solid dance music & reliable bartenders. I recommend reserving a table for you and your friends near the dance floor.
Dress Code: Dress nice to casual, but not sloppy. Dress to have fun!
O'Brien's Pub: English Sanctuary
If you need to hear some English, definitely hit O'Brien's pub. We watched the 2007 "American" football playoffs there in January. Of course they came on around 2am in the morning!!! Great beer and food. Pool tables too.
Dress Code: Casual. Wear a sports jersey.
Club 112: Party Time!
A great "Ausin Powers" type night-club! 80's and current hit music. On my first trip to Ukraine in 2002, I went to club 111, which I think closed. Now there is Club 112 located in Arena. A two-level bar that is high-energy! In Jan 07, we went there and met the nicest Polar Bear!
Dress Code: Dress nice!
Kiev Concerts: Pump it!
Last Spring I went to two concerts in Kiev. "The Black Eyed Peas" at the Sports Arena and "50 Cent" at the Arena. The BEP concert was awesome and off the hook. I wish I could say that $00.50 was worth the ticket price, but he sucked. I like the music, but he put on a crummy show.
Dress Code: Party gear!
Golden Gate: 'Irish' Pub
Typically meaningless tag to give this pub which also serves food, have to say I am not a fan of supposed 'Irish' pubs except those in Blefast or Dublin.
Breakfasts and hot sandwiches served at the table, by the standards of the city it is pricier than average.
Pricey and ordinary - not really one to seek out but passable if you happen upon it at a time you want a snack or drink
Dress Code: Nada
o'briens' pub: irish pub
as we were over for the ukraine v scotland soccer match it seemed like a good idea to head to an irish pub. we were mad to feel very welcome here with the drinks prices quite reasonable at 10hry for a pint of local beer. we also ate here several times again because it was all priced very well. i would recommend the chicken kiev.
Dress Code: there seemed to be no restrictions here
- Beer Tasting
Club 112: Erotic Night at Club 112
The night to go is Sunday, which offers an "Erotic Show", with female/male dancers and fun games for the audience to participate in. Place is kind of small and doesn't get going till around 10/11pm. Good music and laid back atmosphere. There'll be some working girls in the bar, but they're fun to talk and dance with too...if you don't want to take them home.
Dress Code: Dress nice and there is a small cover charge.
Caribbean Club: Latin Dancing
Going to the Caribbean Club was one of the highlights of my trip to Kiev. My buddy and I arrived at 10pm and paid a $9 cover charge. After the bodyguards search us, we entered into an almost empty room, with maybe ten people dancing to latin music. Since we paid the cover, we stayed for a few beers....after 30 minutes...things got really fun. In a matter of less than an hour, the place was packed with women, all wanting to dance. Music switched from latin to hip hop and rock. Neither one of us speak a lick of Russian, but we we able to dance and have fun with Ukrainian girls all night. The ratio of girls to guys was 4 to 1 on Saturday night. Learn a few introductory phases in Russian, especially "would you like to dance"...and you'll have a blast all night.
Dress Code: Very casual...but I don't think you can get in with shorts or ripped jeans.
