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 at Glintveynia. 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.
