Kyiv Post - - Lifestyle - BY TOMA I STOMINA [email protected]

Enough of the em­broi­dery and borscht, Kyiv: Euro­vi­sion tourists want to party. The cap­i­tal of Ukraine is, of course, the cul­tural cen­ter of the coun­try, but while stay­ing here for­eign­ers will want to ex­pe­ri­ence the nightlife as well. So here’s a list of some of the top Kyiv clubs to visit for a fun night out.


Indigo night club is known for its high-level par­ties — good sound, pro­fes­sional ser­vice, danc­ing shows and en­er­getic MCs. The bar menu con­tains both clas­sic and orig­i­nal cock­tails. The club throws par­ties nightly from Thurs­day to Sun­day. The or­ga­niz­ers have also pre­pared a spe­cial event for Euro­vi­sion guests — the Euro Dance party — on May 5.

Indigo (3 Kudryashov­a St.) Thurs­day — Sun­day. 10 p.m.— 6 a.m.


This mod­ern venue in the heart of Kyiv is the place for en­er­getic danc­ing and re­lax­ing on the lounge ter­race. Vis­i­tors can en­joy a panoramic view of the city from the wall-sized win­dows. Its three bars of­fer a wide range of drinks. The dance shows, bright lights and loud mu­sic at SKYBAR will en­ter­tain guests and keep them up all night.

SKYBAR (5 Ve­lyka Va­sylkivska St.) Mon­day — Satur­day. 11 p.m.

Caribbean Club

Fans of fiery Latin rhythms have been gath­er­ing here for nearly 20 years for en­er­getic par­ties with dance cover-bands or orig­i­nal dance mixes. Its large dance floor gives vis­i­tors an op­por­tu­nity to have an un­for­get­table time. Caribbean Club (4 Petlura St.) Mon­day — Sun­day. 6 p.m.— 6 a.m.


This is one of the cap­i­tal’s best clubs, close to Livoberezh­na metro sta­tion and the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test arena. B-52 is a com­bi­na­tion of a dance club, restau­rant and sum­mer ter­race, de­signed in a fu­tur­is­tic style. It of­fers vis­i­tors sim­ple but de­li­cious cui­sine and orig­i­nal drinks. Guests can also or­der a hookah or play bil­liards.

B-52 (52 Bratyslavs­ka St.) Fri­day — Satur­day. 9 p.m.— 6 a.m.


Fa­mous Restau­rant and Danc­ing Ter­race works in shifts: it’s a re­lax­ing hang­out dur­ing the day, but in the evening it trans­forms into a karaoke bar and at night it’s a dance venue. Lo­cated in the cen­ter of Kyiv (in the Arena City com­plex), Fa­mous is not only a fancy night club, but also a place to meet cre­ative in­di­vid­u­als — pho­tog­ra­phers, de­sign­ers, and mu­si­cians — who are fre­quent vis­i­tors.

Fa­mous (5 Cher­vonoarmiys­ka St.) Fri­day — Satur­day. 10 p.m.— 6 a.m.


Although Ukraine is con­sid­ered un­friendly to les­bians, gays, bi­sex­u­als and trans­gen­der peo­ple ( the LGBT+ com­mu­nity), Kyiv has sev­eral pop­u­lar gay clubs, and Lift is the best of them, known for its lively par­ties, spec­tac­u­lar drag queen shows and fun karaoke nights. Shows are nightly, but those who want some­thing spe­cial should visit on Fri­days or Satur­days for the gor­geous Grand Show on the main stage.

Lift (72a Ve­lyka Va­sylkivska St.) Sun­day — Thurs­day. 11 p.m.— 6 a.m. Fri­day — Satur­day. 10 p.m.— 8 a.m.
