I recommend stopping at the Vodka Bar, even for a short stay. Yes, they have loud Techno music to the point you think you are standing on a runway of a major airport listening to airliners on a takeoff roll, and the pub is oddly shaped, but the drinks prices are average for Kyiv, (they might fluctuate a few UAH...

It is nearly empty on Sundays, so if You want to enjoy the atmosphere, visit on Friday os Saturday. Prices are normal, 4-5 EUR/vodka, there is an entrance fee (approx 10 EUR). Watch Your pocket.

I speak ukrainian and came in with an english speaking friend. They charged him 50 cover, and when i asked ow much cover was, they said free. Bartender thought i was american, and made an ignorant joke to his buddy in front of me. A-hole bouncer told us it was 2000 per table downstairs when the place was empty.

Nothing annoys me more than going to a place and getting "rejected" for stupid reasons. In Vodka Bar its rarely to happen so that is a good point. You sometimes need to pay some entrance but even on Fridays is 8 euros for boys, free for girls. About the food , i never even tried , but i guess its... More

Good place to hang out. Friendly crowd, generous drinks (if you go to upstairs bar and tip a little !), and great location - stumbling distance back to your hotel if you are staying near Kreshatyk. Note that to find the place, you have to go underground as it is located underneath Independence Square.
