    My friends and I heard of this new nightclub and one day we decided to go there for there was a ballet program at night there. Because of that program the entrance ticket was 40 UAH (plus 10 UAH deposit for the entrance magnet card).
    The club is open from 8 p.m., but the program started at about 11 p.m. and lasted for about 45 minutes.
    This new nightclub is famous already for its super stars performing there:
    Two Unlimited, Dr. Alban and Nazareth - they all have performed there already and the decision on their performance there was taken at the level of the republic.
    This nightclub, unlike all others, has three levels, lavish decor and rich menu (although not a very cheap one).
    Our drinks there costs us about 100 Euro in the long run (for the five of us).
    This club has a web site where you can read all their rules (in Russian).
    Here they are:
    · To avoid any misunderstanding video is taken at our establishment;
    · The administration of the establishment reserves the right to terminate the stay of the customers without explanation of reasons;
    · Forbidden things: to enter with arms, to enter in sports and beach clothes, to bring liquors into the establishment;
    · Photography and video are only made with prior permission of the administration;
    · The entrance to the establishment is through the turnstile with a magnet card that is given to each customer at the entrance. The deposit price of the card of 10 UAH. The deposit cost is returned to the customer at his departure at the cash desk. The access on the unreturned card is automatically blocked on the next day;
    · The administration reserves the right to change the entrance fee.

    Dress Code: casual but neat and clean (face control)\
    Here's good news:
    starting with January 15, 2009
    this nightclub is open as an Intalian restaurant
    from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m.
    The entrance at that time is free.

    Another nighttime activity is strolling along the downtown streets such as Kotsiubinsky Street that runs parallel to Sovietskaya Street.
    You can always see lots of people there and just sit at a bench or at a bistro, watch the people and have your tea or drink your beer.
    The only thing is to mind the pavements that tend to be beyond repair at times.
    Be careful about the pot-holes!

    You can visit "Babylon" bowling club (on the picture) with "Wineshop" Chezh restaurant that were dedicated in April 2001.
    They are located next to the museum of local lore, opposite the 'Texas' saloon.
    You can go ten-pin bowling ($20 an hour for a company of four), then sit in the wine restaurant next door and try dozens of wine brands. It's the only restaurant with Czech cuisine in the city where you can taste delicious "fire dishes".
    Have fun!
    There is also a bistro cafe with Ukrainian national cuisine on the first floor, a door to your left as you enter the entrance door.
    We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and appreciated the chance to go ten-pin bowling and relax at "Babylon" bowling club.

    Dress Code: no special dress code.

    This new nightclub is located on the western outskirts.
    It has become very popular among the young people as a cozy and nice place.
    My English friend who stayed in Luhansk wanted to see this club.
    We stayed there until midnight and he visited it later several times.
    Since we arrive at about 10 p.m. there were no tables vacant except those where you have to order drinks and food for 100 UAH minumum. That table costs additional 30 or 50 UAH.
    The music was loud and nice, but the young people only started active dancing at about midnight after they had had a bite.

    Gagarin night club, Luhansk

    I visited this club twice, with a nice young lady, and we had a great time! There are ten-pin bowling lanes downstairs (I TRIED not to throw stikes, really!) as well as a snack area with tables.
    Also an ice-skating rink (sorry, weak ankles, I don't skate). There is a large common area, some very nice ladies to check your coat for you and a friendly, energetic atmosphere. Upstairs are the billiard tables (sorry, I don't prefer Russian billiards), quite a few tables, and also a bar with some tables.
    I'm sure there are activities I missed, but from my experience there was music, dancing, eating and drinking and GREAT people watching.
    (Have you ever seen young men try to NOT look at a beautiful girl, as she leans over a billiard table? Hilarious!)

    Note: I did see some "topless bowling" photos on their website, so you might want to check the schedule before you go!

    Dress Code: I am not aware of any dress code.

    If you are interested just to see a dance show at night, why not go to Good Zone night club located not far from the Ukrainian Theater and Absolut store.
    The dance programs start at about 10 p.m., the entrance fee is $3 and the minimum order at the table is $4.
    So you can just sit, see the program that lasts for about 45 minutes and enjoy.
    Then you could stay for an hour or so to dance a bit.
    It's up to you.
    I enjoyed seeing the performance of this ballet that was introduced as the best ballet in the city.
    The young girls danced beautifully!
    The audience enjoyed the performance, too.
    Only the local guys were too shy when the young dancers invited them to the scene to dance with them for a while. The young guys preferred sitting and drinking their beer.
    The entrance fee: $5, the minimum order is $4 at the bar.
    There is another dance company called Dance Angels, but I did not see their performance.
    Have fun, then!

    You can have a good time here.
    Young men and the not-so-young can be seen dancing here, so why not just come and experience it all yourself?
    There are a lot of security guys, so there's no risk at all.
    Taking pictures is not really allowed here to "prevent stealing the design".
    The design looks like that of a car workshop with inspection holes, cars on the ceiling and on the walls and even tables made inside cars and pickups...
    This picture was taken for a friend of mine, a foreigner, who celebrated a holiday with his friend there...A privileged inside picture...
