On 24 January, a new venue opened its doors to the cultured Kyiv community. Its Not the Louvre can be found through an archway on Chapaeva – just follow the music and lively conversation about life, art, and all that jazz. The inside is not unlike those topics listed above – the venue has a very collegey feel-featuring all kinds of artwork and not one piece of furniture matches another.
