In the hall “Rock” one of the walls is decorated with a motorcycle and plays the appropriate music. There are two more halls – “John Lennon” and “Jazz”.
For those who are bored with the usual bars, an absinthe bar opened on the Vorovsky Street. Lattices on windows, soft walls, urological cabinet in the toilet, test tubes with alcohol and waitresses-nurses doing alcohol injections. Almost like in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. Only with alcohol.
