Nightlife in Kiev until a few years ago, the thought that there was a nightlife in Kiev would not have occurred in the minds of young Westerners. The Kiev mountains were deep behind the Soviet Iron Curtain and any activity that resembled a nightlife was considered subversive and forbidden. Like other cities in Eastern Europe and in the former Soviet Union in particular, after the breakup of the Communist bloc there were more and more clubs, pubs, coffee shops and a wide range of places to enjoy a night out, that would not shame in comparison to the nightlife in other large cities in Western Europe, such as London, Paris, Berlin, and other large cities. The logic is simple, once the authorities did not prevent it, both local entrepreneurs and foreign entrepreneurs began to enter these countries and invest in the establishment of complexes of discos, clubs and other places where young people can enjoy and spend their money. The state must have encouraged it, for it was a good source of revenue, and certainly a good source of tourism. Today Kiev attracts many young people from all over the world, who come to visit the city and spend nights in it. Those looking for a nightlife in Kiev will not find it difficult to find a variety of places, some places with local characteristics, including music, food and local alcohol. Alongside them, you can find a variety of places with international characteristics, places that play among others, trance, house music, places that play black and rock music, of course in those places you can find Western food, American food, Japanese food and a lot of alcohol, local and international. It should be said that, like many large cities in the former Communist bloc, like Moscow for example, in Kiev there is a division of entertainment areas according to classes. There are some very prestigious sites, where every evening rich people arrive, men in suits and women with fur coats and jewelry. On the other hand, you can find sites that are more suitable for the middle class, young tourists who come to Kiev for short holidays and sleep in simple hotels or hostels. However, if you want to have the full experience, it is recommended that, if one can, invest at least once in a prestigious club or restaurant, and enjoy everything they have to offer, pleasure is guaranteed!
