Decadence House

380 44 206-4920

Among the many new clubs, bars, and restaurants in Kiev, none is hotter than Decadence House. The café and club is black inside, an Art Deco chamber of discreet permissions. Beautiful women come and go, dressed to kill. Vyacheslav "Slava" Konstantinovsky and his twin brother Alexander opened Decadence in 2004 and the place now attracts a clientele willing to pay high prices for a night on the town. During the revolution, the Konstantinovsky brothers offered up Decadence as a place for Orange functionaries, and the club's televisions broadcast the mass street protests, the gathering army, the whole uncertainty of a political process in crisis. Slava waves it away. "We're not so interested in politics now," he says, his TV's now looping the Fashion TV channel.
