P1 Prosecco Bar
P1 Prosecco Bar is a Jazz club, the perfect place to relax on the sixth floor of the M1 Club Hotel. The first thing you notice here is minimalistic design, muted light, gently falling on glass, wood and metal elements. It resembles the atmosphere of American underground speakeasy-bars, where the connoisseurs of alcohol gathered during Prohibition. Only large panoramic windows bring a touch of a completely different mood of a resort, of the sea.
In the evenings (Thursday to Sunday) you can listen to beautiful jazz performed by the best Ukrainian and foreign artists.
The atmosphere of relaxation and rest in the first prosecco & crudo bar in Odesa is perfectly complemented by creative cocktails from Vasily Shilofost, famous Kyiv bartender and mixologist, as well as prosecco and meals based on Peruvian and Mediterranean cuisine. Menu is based on seafood snacks, carpaccio, tartare, ceviche and delicious homemade sorbets.
Address: 1 Lidersovskiy Blvd., Odesa.

Kotelok Mussel Bar is a new Odesa restaurant and bar that will awe its visitors with delicious Black Sea region cuisine and well mixed drinks. Moules frites or simply fried mussels is a national dish in Belgium, and even though you might find picking the mussel meat out of their shells a tiny bit disgusting at first, let me assure you that it is well worth a try. Kotelok offers different sauces that go perfectly well with moules frites, ranging from the classics (“nature”, “Provencal” or with white wine, for example) to the exotic, including a number of beer-based sauces.
Relaxed atmosphere, great simple food on the menu and the proximity to Odesa city center makes Kotelok an ultimate dining spot for a nice evening out in town.
Bourbon Rock Bar
It is a popular bar in Odesa with authentic atmosphere, good old rock music and strong drinks. It is located in the heart of the city and frequented by hip young crowd and numerous foreign travelers. Bourbon Rock Bar offers great selection of fine strong liquors and beers as well as various snacks and bar food.
The place is also famous with its in-house tattoo parlor.
Address: 8/10, Ekaterynenska street, Odesa.
This cocktail bar is located just a stone throw away from Ekaterinska Square. For those who haven’t heard of Fitz before, finding it will be rather challenging. The bar following the recent trend of speakeasy bars, has no sign or any other indication of its presence on the ground floor of a grey building. The place looks rather deserted during daytime. However, it completely transforms after dusk, getting super crowded and bringing that pleasant buzz of a popular nightlife venue.
Fitz is a place for drinking and fun and not so much for eating. Cocktails here are rather pricy, but exceptionally well mixed. Fitz also is a place for super trendy barbershop in Odesa, which is located in the adjoining room.
