Parovoz Speakeasy

Kyiv, Ukraine

A veteran of the Kyiv bar scene, this space hidden in the basement of one of the city’s oldest cinemas was reinvented in 2013 as a speakeasy. “Parovoz” means “locomotive”, which is reflected in the decor of this train carriage-like space, with retro decor including a beautiful tin ceiling, and an old-school back bar. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, with the well turned out bar team producing an array of classic cocktails, including some lesser-known options such as the Missionary’s Downfall, all elegantly presented. There’s a concise list of Modern and Signature drinks, and don’t miss the Parovoz Bloody Mary from the All Time Favorites section. A restaurant as well as a cocktail bar, there’s a variety of food to accompany these classics. The Parovoz team also offers a mixology course for bartenders that includes an internship at the bar.
