My girlfriend (soon to be fiancée) and I will be spending New Year’s night in Kiev. I'm looking for suggestions on good night clubs to attend on New Years. I'm familiar with the Buddha Bar and Avalon club, but I have no idea beyond these two. Any suggestions or recommendations will be appreciated!
Oh, never thought I'd be doing this so soon again, this trip I'm bringing a ring with me
Hey Coop -- I don't have any data, never been to a night club in my life. But I can ask around, I'm in town for a few days. I'm posting to offer my congratulations. A couple of years ago, I was dreaming of making the trip to Kyiv with a ring in my carry-on. Didn't happen, but I remember the excitement of the dream. I wish you all the best!
I wonder -- I have a short memory when it comes to things that don't matter much. Mini-coop was it you who blasted me? I forget. Does not matter. Congrats. My issue is finding a place near Rostov on don for the same thing. Sucks to have to travel during the peak of winter to that area. Maybe Sochi or somewhere near. Gearing up for the winter olympics in 2012... you made me think... maybe Kiev would be a better place to spend NYE.
My experience is limited and frustrating. Decided to leave it to about 10 pm to go out on New Years eve. Virtually everything was closed. Its the one thing they all seem to celebrate with a passion. I was lucky to find a hot dog stand with a giant queue just to get a snack. Had a good show and fireworks display on independance sq but was a bit chilli standing around.
I will also be in Kiev for NYE!
If you want to go ot one of the top clubs it will be expensive! I have been told up to $1000.00 to reserve a table at the very top clubs, I think this also includes food though.
If you know anyone in Kiev, try and get them to at least reserve door tickets, nowhere near as expensive as the table rip off, but for that night! it will still be pricey1
Personally, Im past the night club stage (she isnt but) I will be happy enough in either Irish bar, O Briens or the Golden Gate.
Also, try and reserve your apartment as early as possible, I have been warned that the very central ones increase in price over this period.
