I HIGHLY doubt that this place is actually sponsored by the makers of Martini mixers. That being said, it looked like a nice enough place and has very knowledgeable bartenders. I stopped in to get some help finding some ingredients that I needed to make a Margarita and they were able to point me in the right direction. Nice atmosphere and friendly bar staff.
Dress Code: Casual
Directions: Just off Soviet square and Kirov prospect on a little side street called Ushinskij as you are walking toward the Post Office and Ukraine hotel.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
Don't expect bowling in Ukraine to be much like bowling as it exists in the United States. Sure, the rules and the game are about the same, but bowling has become a chic pasttime for those with money in Ukraine. The lanes rent by the hour ($20 per hour is about average, I hear) and the patrons treat it more like a bar atmosphere, hanging out in groups and drinking. When was the last time your home-town bowling alley hyped the fact that they served sushi?
Dress Code: Casual
Address: S side of Kuybishcheva square
This place is downtown and offers a number of live performances such as musical acts, puppet shows, and other entertainers. The current show while I was there was a rather bored looking magician named Igor Kio.
Dress Code: depends on the performance.
Address: Gorkij street, just down from the movie theaters
Theme: Live Music
This building has a prominent spot on Soviet square and you can't help but notice it. I don't think they run Western movies here. It's either a spot for Ukrainian/Russian movies or some other types of local performances.
Dress Code: depends on the type of performance.
Address: on the NE corner of Soviet square
This is probably the best movie theater in town. They only have one screen, but the sound is Dolby Digital. Show times start around 11 AM and go through 9 PM or so. The box office here services both this theater and the theater next door (Dream Theater?). Ticket prices are only $3 each and you have to pick your assigned seats at the time of purchase.
Dress Code: Casual is fine
Address: Gorkij street, #5
This place is one of the top discos in Simferopol. Expect it to be packed if there is a University holiday the next day. Two floors of tables overlooking a decent-sized dance floor. I happened to stop by on Oct. 31st for the Halloween party. Dancing seems to be almost a required activity for local girls, although they seem to stick together in groups to themselves. Bring your own dance partner if you're not already going with a group.
Dress Code: Dress up as you would to any other discotheque, although nobody would be caught in shorts here.
Address: 87 Kiev street
Directions: North of Gagarin park on Kiev street on the left-hand side.
