Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, is rich in culture and history, but at night is home to a vibrant and exciting nightlife atmosphere. There are many clubs and bars to frequent in the capital city, but below we have outlined just a few of the top choices to experience the nightlife in Kiev, Ukraine.
Dali Park has a mixture of nightlife entertainment all packed into one building. Dali Park (previously named Dante Park) features an upscale restaurant, modern night club, and a Karaoke bar. Because the complex is entirely open air, the club is only open from May to September and only open Tuesday night through Saturday. The restaurant serves traditional Japanese, European, and Ukrainian cuisine and also has a grill menu. Dali Park has an extensive wine list and hookah bar inside. Plus, Dali Park regularly hosts entertainment such as fashion shows, star DJs, and concerts. Admission to the club is about 30 Euros and it can be even more expensive to reserve a table. The entrance fee and reservation is well worth it though to experience Dali Park at least once.
Opened in 1998, the Caribbean Club is one of the oldest clubs in Kiev. Open seven days a week from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, the admission fee is 20 Euro except on Mondays and Tuesdays when admission is free. The space was renovated in 2013 and now has the ability to host live music and concerts. The music is mostly latin music and salsa with plenty of dancing. The Caribbean Club is very centrally located with easy access from the metro station and the main train station. While the staff is very attentive, the food has not had great reviews.
A popular bar and club, shoots is a relatively inexpensive alternative to some of the high priced nightlife venues in Kiev. Consisting of three floors, Shooters has a hookah bar on the first floor, a dance club on the second floor, and a restaurant on the third floor. The club starts to really fill up around 10:30 pm.

Club 44 is more relaxed than other clubs in Kiev and no real dress code is required to enter the club.
