It’s one of the most legendary Kiev bars. It’s hard to find a real expat who hasn’t made it to this hard to find place at least once in his or her life. Palata #6 is located in one of the courtyards on Vorovskogo street. In order to find it the first time, you will need a certain amount of effort and knowledge.
You’ll find a house on the 31a Vorovskogo street, then go into the dark yard, and walk along the residential house. At the end of which you will find stairs leading down. Go down and now you are inside the natural loony bin! Brick walls, bartenders in doctors suits, waitresses dressed as nurses.
If you order a hard drink like vodka, absinthe or brandy, it will be poured into real medical beakers. But if you ask for some special at the bar you should be ready for anything. For example, a cocktail “Shpritz”: the customer would lie on the bar, while a beautiful nurse sits on them and pours ingredients into their mouth! Or the cocktail “Kaska” (Helmet): you’d wear a military helmet, the bartender will make 3 shots that you drink quickly one by one and then he’ll hit you over the head in the truest sense of the word. Ohhh… it’s an unforgettable experience. Or forgettable… Overall, the dizzy impressions of Palata #6 is what you need to visit for.
By the way, besides the drink experience you can get some nice cheap food here.
