When I lived in Kiev (for 4 years), this wonderful place was run by a British expat and became my favourite haunt, mainly due to the music, the intimacy, the friends I made and the quality of food and beer. It was always a welcoming place where most people knew your name. And you had to know where it was!!... More

A small and cozy basement Pub where it’s easy to make new friendships. Good selection of beer and food with very cheap prices. Live music and friendly staff. My favorite place in Kiev!

Well, I've only been once, but it was outstanding in every way I experienced it, at least. Great atmosphere, fantastic turkey burger, g&t was a fine pour, the music was great but not overpowering. Absolutely and certainly, I will return several times.

Such a comfortable and calming place. The beer and food is very tasty. The music is nice and it perfectly match the overall atmosphere.
