Drinking & Nightlife

Minsk and Brest are decidedly rocking, although the nightlife tends to be concentrated on the weekends. You'll need to dress the part at chi-chi clubs in Minsk, where strict feiskontrol ('face control' or admission rules) is the norm. The scene is more laid-back in Brest. Minsk sees summer-weekend street parties rock the Old Town, while Brest has a pleasant pedestrian strip tailor made for sipping beers or coffee.
