This spacious, unpretentious Ukrainian Village nightspot has gradually upgraded sound and stage features, enabling it to turn from rock bar to DJ den in a flash. The photography-themed decor extends to displays of local photographers’ prints. DJ nights for reggae, hip-hop and house predominate, but rock, indie and electro nights are frequent. Somehow, it’s never gotten overly hip, which might be because it needs a headcount of 100 before it starts to get cozy.
