“Interesting atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Interesting concept of the place and it is cool, because it is unusual, in Donetsk is so difficult ro find interesting place so this one is one of that place where I would recommend to go to "change picture".

“Unique Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a restaurant (no matter the fact that it's called club-bar) with a a central location, a very unique atmosphere and name (the word "svinia" in Russian means "pig") as well as a program including some tricks with a pig that is presented as the director of the venue under the name of Modest Ivanovich. The interior is unique since you can write everywhere (on table or walls) whatever you want, there is toilet paper on the table instead of napkins, but this somehow contributes to the different atmosphere of the venue and makes it popular among the guests of the city and the local population. The dishes they offer are quite delicious (I strongly recommend the so-called pork dinner (svinskiy uzhin) and the superb draught Blanche beer) , the service is good, the program with the pig is also interesting, but beware though that the pig tries to bite you if you want to touch it since it is kept on a diet (at least this is what we have been told. For a dinner for 3 people with some vodka and several beers we paid less than 100 EUR. You can pay in cash or by credit card, the venue doesn't have a parking, but there is plenty of space to park your car on a nearby street.
