“great place for hookers, poor for food and drinks”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The place is generally cool at first glance, right in the center, well attended. You might even enjoy it but just go for a beer or a coffe, the rest is a waste.
Food: by the time that the meal is served if you haven't already left for the nearby macdonald you can enjoy an average international cousine, overpriced. Everything takes forever... the best deal is to seat at the bar stool and get yourself a beer, asking the barman directly. Avoid waiters, they are useless... I was about to go directly at the kitchen to get my food after almost an hour of waiting.... and take beer, forget about wines, they have average to low quality, super high prices.
For those who care, hookers are everywhere, good to make up for the waiting eventually.

“Arena Beer House - Best bloody Mary in town :)”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Great food & service, relaxing atmosphere, enjoyable live music and THE BEST BLOODY MARY IN TOWN! Somewhat expensive (Kiev standards)., i.e. Sushi rolls between 12-25 USD, cocktails 9-15 USD. Great place to warm up before Decadance (a newly opened posh night club just above)

“Good place with eclectic offerings!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We stayed in the apartment right next to the Arena, so this was our natural meeting place during our week in Kiev. The restaurant downstairs has good food with varied service - expensive in Kiev. Deck - cafe (Bright and white furniture) - Lovely to enjoy a cool refreshment on hot days, good service and straightforward pricing. The sports bar on the second floor shows all of sports, especially football - Many great good displays, viewing angles everywhere - something expensive, but good service! The nightclub on the second floor, great atmosphere on weekends, young clientele - cheap and good to sit outside on warm nights. Gentleman club - Expensive and great risk of being defrauded. Skybar at the top of the Arena - Lovely nightclub with a fantastic view over the city - Recommended!
Conclusion: Arena a mixture of several offers of varying character, but here you most and you love sport then recommended Sportsbar.

“Sports Bar, Restaurant and Nightclub on separate levels.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I've been to all three establishments. Particularly like the sports bar. Upbeat atmosphere. The nightclub was not for me as it was a younger crowd. Restuarant menu a little pricy. All in all a nice place. Many foreigners frequent the downstairs bar.
