Poplavok Jazz Café

In a pavilion overlooking Poplavok pond, this lounge-cafe is a male-dominated spot for a coffee during the day and an okay live-jazz venue at night. Poplavok is infamously known as the place where a man was...

A dark basement club that's usually dead until it cranks up after midnight. Music is international dance hits. There's a cover charge of AMD1000 on Friday and Saturday.
