The first place in a planned chain opened by a young couple as a result of their attendance in a restaurant start-up camp. Glintveynia became trendy right after opening, as Kiev people already know what hot must be like. The focus here is on mulled wine itself and – surprisingly – on various sausages cooked on the open grill. Munich, Bavarian, Czech – the choice is yours. Hot Ukrainian made wine is stored in wooden barrels and has a lot of spices which makes it the best in the city.
If you have a sweet-tooth you will find macarons, biscuits, merengues and some cakes to choose from. The colorful and cosy cups for the wine are inviting. The seats near the window are a target – watching busy downtown from a warm location through the big window and talking to a friend or hugging your lover – there’s never too much romance if it is real.
The design is a comfortable loft with brick walls, plants and wood. In the spring-to-autumn season a must are the low wooden seats outside – feel the city as it is: busy, warm and friendly.
