Dockers ABC (not Dockers Pub!): "Rock and Roll Bar" Kiev Nightlife Tip by stevekunz
Kiev Nightlife: 115 reviews and 136 photos
Dockers ABC is listed in "Kyiv in Your Pocket" guide which you can pick up anywhere under 'Nightclubs' although this is more of a rock-and-roll bar than a nightclub. I was there in late August 2006 on a Thursday and Friday nights and there were fun cover bands and rock-and-roll from the jukebox in between the bands.
Depending on the band, people may get very into the music and dance on the bar (which is actually encouraged apparently). There isn't a lot of dancing space in the bar but it's a cool place. Very highly rated place overall, nice to do something other than nightclubs. Just don't try the absinthe shots. Actually that's not a slam against Dockers that is more of advice in general :)
When we were there on a Thursday, there was an awesome cover band with a female lead singer who played everything from Ukrainian rock songs to U2 to Bon Jovi to Alanis Morissette. It didn't hurt that she was gorgeous and had great energy.
You can also order food here and it was pretty good.
Dress Code: Very laid back place. People wearing any kind of clothing will fit in most likely.
Address: Khreschatyk 15/4A
Directions: This Dockers is in the central/shopping area on Khreschatyk. At 15, there is the "passaje" area which is an alley up from the main street. Dockers is up a ways on the right.
NOT to be confused with the other Dockers (Dockers Pub).
