Bochka is a no nonsense pub perfectly located for starting or wrapping up your bar-hopping adventure. Top local rock, pop and hip-hop acts perform Tuesday-Sunday. Cover charge varies on the notoriety of the band, but is more or less reasonable. For a taste of Kyiv that’s sure to make its way into the memory bank, try Bochka’s house brew available in dark, light and live. The interior is massive by local standards, so even on packed nights it’s possible to find some elbow room. Local and Euro cuisine is on hand. The price on menu items is a touch steep for a pub, but the breakfast and lunch specials are value and flavour packed.
