Odesa Nightlife: Best Nightclubs for Foreigners
It is not by chance that Odessa has become the most popular Ukrainian resort city, because there is not only the sea and excellent beaches, but also entertainment for every taste. This city never sleeps – every night all year round Odessa dances and has fun in numerous Odesa Night Clubs that offer rest for any budget and preferences. Odessa Nightlife is truly diverse: beach clubs with bright night parties by the sea, closed clubs with pretentious VIP parties for the elite visitors, strip bars with the most beautiful girls, art cafes, karaoke, restaurants and bars that work around the clock, and those where you can not only have a tasty meal and drink in a fun company, but also dance or listen to concerts of rock, folk and jazz music.
Odesa Best Nightclubs
If you are looking for nightlife in Odessa and want to spend unforgettable time – this article is for you! Check the information about the best nightclubs of Odessa and what foreign guests shall be aware of.
Ministerium – the most pretentious Odessa Nightclub
Ministerium Club located in the city center is the most expensive and pretentious in Odessa. Ministerium is a very beautiful mansion with a restaurant, karaoke bar, lounge area and several concert halls, where very special and bright parties take place every evening. In the summer, Ministerium offers cozy summer terrace with a superb view of the center of Odessa and pleasant live music.
Arkadia – the Center of the Nightlife in Odessa
In the summer the flow of tourists to Arcadia is truly overwhelming. If you have been to Arcadia and have not been to a nightclub, then this is equal to being in London and not seeing Big Ben.
Indeed, many places in Odessa offer high-quality rest. A huge number of clubs and restaurants hospitably open their doors to visitors. However, not everybody and not always are welcome – many clubs have strict face-control.
Among tourists and guests of the city, Ibiza Beach Club, which is open from May to September, is the most popular nightclub. Every night in Ibiza you can dance until dawn with the best music right by the sea, and relax in the lounge area near the pools. Ibiza is one of the most popular concert venues in the city, where world pop stars regularly perform.
It is known that even during the day many tourists run to photograph the signboard of the club to show their friends what a famous place they visited!
Meanwhile, Ibiza is probably the shadiest club of Arkadia.
Almost everyone who looks beautiful and expensive is allowed here.
The guards often forget to ask if the visitor is 21 years old.
In addition, Ibiza is visited by many foreigners who are attracted by the beauty of Ukrainian women and the opportunity to get to know them: so they hit on everyone – what if they are lucky?
Ibiza guest Khaladin is quite pleased with this situation: “I often come to Odessa in the summer, and I always come to Ibiza. Here I like the atmosphere and many beautiful girls who are willing to get acquainted with guys. It should be said, some of the ladies may react aggressively, but with a good company it is not offensive, it is even amusing”.
At this, the indisputable merits of the club are its large territory, smiling staff and a very attractive atmosphere.
Ibiza has two large dance floors, swimming pool, beautiful and cozy tables/sofas. The club is also famous for good concerts of famous stars.
The prices here are high – same for the entrance fee, the meals, and the bar. Although, as we see, this does not frighten visitors at all.
Ithaka Night and Beach Club, also located in Arcadia, is no less popular. This club is stylized as an ancient Hellas, has a bar area with the widest choice of various cocktails, a night club with the best Odessa DJs, a restaurant with Mediterranean and European cuisine, and a large concert arena.
We also recommend having a look at Mantra Club, which is also located in Arkadia.
If we move a little away from Arkadia, we will find other equally interesting places.
Plyazhnik Nightclub (Beach-goer)
Plyazhnik Nightclub is not the most famous Odessa venue, but it has its constant clientele. This institution has strict face control. Entry is allowed only to those who have reached 21 years old and at the same time has a decent appearance. Therefore, the chances of meeting crazy youth here are reduced to zero.
The entrance to Plyazhnik is either free or very low cost, but the bar and the meals here are much more expensive than in the other nightclubs we reviewed. But you are always sure to get good drinks here – the place values its reputation. By the way, those who like high quality alcohol prefer going to this nightclub. People come to this place to rest and relax, but within the limits of decency. In particular, there is no one staring at girls.
“When I go to Plyazhnik I do not feel like a piece of meat half of the visitors stare at. I am also very pleased that there are practically no Turks here; the other Arcadia clubs are full of them”, said Oksana from Odessa, a frequent guest of the nightclub.
Another advantage of Plyazhnik is its security. The guards are everywhere, they do not allow fights, and do not allow other guests bothering with the girls. “Cons” of the place are its small area, unguarded parking, long queues for entry and exit. Club location is not really comfortable.
Captain Morgan Club has a doubtful reputation of one of unsafe places of night Odessa. Among clubbers, this place is known for its bad reputation, and also for dancing at the bar counter.
For its visitors, prices in Morgan are very attractive. The club often offers discounts on certain cocktails or drinks up to 50%, which greatly attracts visitors. But in the end such parties can lead to fights, as young people often drink more than they should. It is known that fighting in Captain Morgan is not uncommon. At the same time, the guards prefer not to intervene in the situation. And the consequences are tragic sometimes. So, on 2012 New Year’s Eve, a guy was injured in the fight near the club; he later died from a severe head injury.
“After my friends told me about the murder, I stopped going to Captain Morgan, because I value my life. You can be not guilty of anything, but just get in trouble with the drunken person and lose your life. Odessa is a big city. There are other good places where you can relax safely,” says a former client of the club who wished to remain incognito.
Natalya, a very bright girl who frequently goes to Captain Morgan, says that more than once man started fighting in the club because of her. “Yes, it was the case that two guys could not decide their issues and started to beat each other because of me. The funniest is that the guards simply took them out and left them outside to continue the fight”.
But sometimes in this club you can relax in peace. For example, in small lounge-rooms. Odessa DJs regularly play at the club, but real concerts are rarely held here.
Those who like disco of the 80s-90s will not be bored in Odessa either, because there is Praetoria Nightclub specializing in thematic dance parties of that time. Experienced DJs mix well-known hits so that no one can sit still.
In Praetoria bar counter stretches through the whole room, and the skillful bartenders turn the process of creating cocktails into a real show that will not let you get bored, even if you come alone.
Office Strip Club
The stronger sex should get ready for especially interesting night rest in Odessa – there are strip clubs with the most beautiful girls in Europe. The Office Strip Club is considered to be the best strip club in Odessa, offering its guests a show of seductive dances, as well as an unforgettable erotic show in two halls.
Here you can find an exquisite restaurant, bar with a wide variety of cocktails, as well as private rooms where you can get maximum pleasure during the personal dance.
If you are not a fan of dancing, but you like to eat tasty food in a cozy atmosphere and sing your favorite songs, go to Opera Prestige – 24\7 karaoke restaurant. This is one of the best karaoke in Odessa – thanks to professional equipment and experienced sound engineers, every performer can feel like a real star here.
On the menu you will find delicious European and Japanese meals, as well as a wide selection of wines and desserts.
Representatives of sexual minorities will also have an unforgettable night in Odessa – Libertin Nightclub will immerse you into the atmosphere of complete freedom and unrestrained fun. Every evening there are a variety of parties and shows and in a separate room there is a modern karaoke hall, where anyone can sing no worse than Gregory Leps. Prices in Libertin are moderate and the morals are rather free, which provides a large number of visitors.
To relieve stress after a hard day and spend an unforgettable time, gentlemen can go to Flirt Club or the strip bar Flirt De Luxe, where only people over 21 are allowed. The atmosphere of the clubs heats the imagination, and the beautiful topless waitresses give men a real aesthetic pleasure. Here you will find two halls and several private rooms, where the dancer you like will perform a dance full of passion only for you.
Pub-club “TRUEman” is famous for live music, concerts of Odessa performers and adequate public. Also, the pub is located in the center of Odessa, which attracts visitors of the city.
The con that shall be noted is the strange behavior of the guards. Many people complain that there are no criteria by which the security guards choose who are to be let in. According to one of the visitors, the security at this club can be really rude and can spoil the mood from the very beginning of the party.
In TRUEman, there are drawers where you can put your things, but their safety is poorly controlled – they often get lost. “The guards do not even let you close to the drawers, explaining that you can steal somebody’s things. And you have to prove that you take your bag. They could use locks – everything is open, only the guards are standing,” Artyom, who visits TRUEman, rarely because of such inconveniences, complains. Also, many visitors note that it may be very smoky and stuffy if there are a lot of people inside. At the same time, TRUEman attracts with its prices, and peaceful and relaxing atmosphere; there are very few fights here.
Art cafe “Shkaf” (Wardrobe)
In the center of Odessa there is excellent art-cafe “Wardrobe”; it has low prices for food and drinks, and every evening guests are entertained by a variety of musical groups, performing songs and music of various genres. The restaurant is very popular among Odessa residents, so we recommend that you book a table in advance.
In addition to clubs and cafes, night Odessa offers playing bowling in Papashon and City Bowling clubs where there is also billiards, lounge area, disco, and karaoke.
Young people will find entertainment to their liking in the 24/7 computer club Terabit, and companies of friends will have a great time in one of the 24-hour saunas, for example, in “House of Smugglers”, “Glyanets” or “Galian”.
Club PARK Residence is a cozy karaoke restaurant where you can eat and relax with popular club music.
As you can see, Odessa is Mecca for those who love noisy parties, discos, shows, drive, live music concerts, vivid emotions and vibrant nightlife. Here, everything is arranged so that any person can find entertainment and relaxation to his liking, as well as get the most positive impressions from his/her stay in this southern city.
