When on Khreshchatyk St, search No 44, pass under the arch way to the courtyard and look out for a door on the left. That is Art Club 44, Kiev's legendary night life venue. Art Club 44 is a real institution in Kiev. Renowned for great live concerts and original art and photo exhibitions it provides a cheerful atmosphere and is the perfect place to come with friends or to simply make new ones.

Daily performances at around 10 pm, movie screenings in a separate room, regular art exhibitions, and drinks at reasonable prices make it the hang out for those in love with any kind of art and socializing. The perfect combination of culture and party – party culture if you want.
This place offers everything you could want: plenty of booze at affordable prices, art shows, movie presentations, live music concerts, and last but not least decent food of European cuisine.
