South Bank of Kiev – Beach party

What is the best place to be in summer? The beach! Sea, river, lake or pool – it doesn’t really matter. When you are in the city and it’s 30 degrees, any water will do, so we are very lucky to have an oasis right in the heart of Kiev.

“South Bank of Kiev” or “Yuzhniy Bereg Kieva” or simply “UBK” is a cafe/bar/club on Trukhaniv island, just across Poshtova square at Podil. It started a few years ago as a small temporary, almost DIY cafe on the beach and now it is an extensive place with several zones – a food court, a beach cafe and a club. It’s great here anytime ¬†– during the day you can relax on the beach in a hammock, play table tennis, swim (probably not the best idea), and later at night you can watch movies, smoke hookah, have some cocktails, dance or visit one of the concerts, DJ sets or theatre plays. There is usually a fee for parties and concerts, but during the day it’s free.

I often come here after work to watch a movie or just have a beer at the beach. The best thing about this place is the feeling that you are on a vacation, even if you have to get up at 07:00 for work the next day.
