The legendary Kyiv cellar on Khreschatyk has, after extensive remodeling, reopened for business. Among the noticeable changes are the prices, plasma monitors and a big screen projector. But that is neither here nor there. The fact of the matter is, that this is one of the only joints in Kyiv where the music is raw, loud and saturated with adrenaline. Over the years, 44 has become a favourite for artists, musicians, writers and pseudo-intellectuals. Don’t let the aesthetic changes disorient you. Head for the well, and choose from the offering of more than 15 varieties of beer.
