One of the bar's employees, named Sergiy, has been very rude and unprofessional with me and my friends. He refused to answer any questions we wanted to ask and at the end of the night he asked when is my train insinuating that I should...leave the bar. My friends and I left the bar after that and will never recommend anyone going to this place. (Just want to specify that bartenders were all very nice and friendly, it was only Sergiy who competely ruined the mood for us that night).More

I've tried the Cheese Burger, it's was meh, 3/5. The cocktails were alright. Not the best whiskey sour in the city, but pretty decent. Loved the atmosphere! Stuff was friendly (we were there on Monday evening) and music wasn't annoying. Definitely will come again.

We were turned away stating the bar was full. Unfriendly doormen. Seems to be a regular problem.. They don't want tourists in their bar. So go somewhere else and safe yourself the humiliation.

Super bar and very friendly, knowledgeable staff. The bar had live music then a dj and certainly was a jumping place. If you're in the areas don't miss it.

I have been a cocktail fan for a long time now, and I never mind paying extra to have nicer alcohol or fresh juices added to my cocktails, so price wise was super, as you will not find this quality of a bartender making you...a good drink with high quality ingredients in Europe. The bar staff was super friendly consulting and answering questions as I usually have many and its not always the case that bar staff hangs out with you readily.More

Was in this bar multiple times few years ago, now was visiting and decided to take a friend there...now they have some entrance guards, who are absolutely rude and arrogant. They have nice cocktails there, but I have no desire to deal once again with...these people to get such horrible treatment like nowhere in the world.More

The staff have zero service mindset, would not recommend to go here, the bouncers also believe it's the coolest place in Kiev and have the same tragic attitude

I had been in this place several times and I was a regular customer until now. From face control to management (barmen were positive) I haven’t seen such ruthless and arrogant people in a bar. Poor language skills and they simply tried to dodge a...simple argument with saying “I don’t understand English”. Face control is favouring their own friends for entrance which is totally humiliating for people who wants to get in on weekends. Drastically drop down with the quality and people and I do not suggest anyone to get in there because not only the barmen are different and quality is far from being an OK.More
