Avoid coming here. We’ve came here as a group of 7 friends on Wednesday/Thursday night. We’ve waited ~1 hour just for regular drinks. Some of us received them a little bit earlier and managed to drink them before rest of us received their drinks. The...staff is unpleasant, unfriendly and you feel here unwelcome. The prices are high and the quality of the drinks is really poor. I’ve visited bars, pubs and restaurants all over the world and THIS IS ALMOST THE WORST PLACE ON EARTH.More

I mean... This place is super bad as it is. There are 2, literally 2 reasons to be here: it is real 24/7; it has good music. So without the latter... SAD!

... is how we call it with a friend of mine. After your night out that's the place you can come by for this last drink, or a cuppa in his case. This place usually have TERRIBLE staff! I say usually cause you can never...know, the rotation is insane. Also it is infamous for ALWAYS ripping guests off! Like LITERALLY we never got the bill right when with a company! There's always smth. no one ordered, cause hey, we're all drunk, most of us can't even read cyrylic... We found about that fact cause actually a lot of us are Ukrainians (from English Club etc.) and some don't even drink. So yeah, the bill is always wrong. I became friends with this nice waitress that wasn't working there after few weeks and she told me the staff isn't actually paid... AT ALL! What you steal from the guests is yours! I can't testify if it is literally that bad, but I can tell you my story: I went there alone, yes in the middle of the night or actually very early morning already. And yes, I was very drunk. I ordered a beer. When I was still drinking it I got the bill... FOR 2 BEERS! I mean when I was literally still holding the one and only I got they tried to make me pay double!!! Cause stupid drunk foreigners, right? Also staff can be rude when you point them out how terrible they are. Dunno how it will be when you visit though, cause it will be different people already... Beer snacks are usually quite OK. Overpriced, but it is the very center. Hookah is fine as well. So now: why the 2 stars, when it looks like it obviously deserves 0? Well one for the music. It is always good! Old blues, jazz, classic rock, modern good stuff etc. Even if you don't like particular clip the next one will be smth. completely different. You can have Aretha Franklin's black and white clip from early '60 fallowed by newest Metallica live! 2nd star: it is truly 24/7. I mean they will close down the upstairs at one point of the night and ask you to go down (sometimes regardless if there are free tables there...), they will be moping the floors around 8am, but you can stay as long as you keep drinking. So... Yeah, good place when everything around is already closed. It is a pity the owners don't pay attention to the quality of service AT ALL when they pay so much of it to have great music. It would be AWESOME music club otherwise!More

The place is quite cool, but the food was really bad! We had a burger and a sandwich which were cold!

If you find yourself searching for a drink in the middle of the night than this is a place to go. Can't tell you anything about the food in this place, since I have not eaten here once. But the drinks are cheap, service is...fast and welcoming, and there are always people inside. Very popular among foreign tourists and expats.More

I love this place! Live music, delicious drinks, dishes & shisha, very kind staff! "Must see" in Lviv.

Ok beer, shisha is nice, music is good, often live music. Food is good, but nothing spectacular. Only problem was that i assumed it they can make cocktails because they were handing coctail menus separately with normal menus. Some were okay, most of them tasted...kinda weak. Negroni which consist of only alcoholic beverages was more like wateroni (i drank it when they brought it to me so it was not from ice). If you want beer, shisha, good music and some snacks, you should go there. Dont bother ordering cocktails.More

They have a number of beers including some tasty local ones for cheap. The decor is great, glamorizing American rock icons. Music videos play on TVs all night, and most of the tunes are good classic rock. The hukkah was nice too.

Music lab turned into a nargile cafe. Your eyes will be hurt of smoke, only good thing was live video of Kurt Cobain.

Hello everybody It's really the good place for Shisha . Stuff are really friendly and the place is very nice, I visit the place in the afternoon was quite calm .

It's really nice place but don't think it is a club or something like that. There's no dance floor and DJs. It's just cool place to have some drinks, maybe hookah. Music is good, people are nice. But it's not a party place.
