Odessa, Ukraine: Enjoying the Nightlife
By:Veronica Smith <[email protected]>

Odessa is one of the most unique cities in Ukraine. It is a rich source of art and a great place to enjoy Western European culture. It's often called "The Pearl of the Black Sea," and for good reason. The city is quite beautiful, and the climate is quite enjoyable. It's a great place to explore the history of the area, or to visit one of the many beautiful beaches. However, when the sun goes down, it's time to enjoy the nightlife that the city is famous for. Whether you enjoy disco clubs, casinos, nightclubs or other forms of entertainment, you'll find it all in Odessa. If you travel to Odessa, be sure to spend at least one evening enjoying some of these hot nightlife spots.

Arena
This great club features a European menu, and is the perfect place to go if you'd like a great dinner along with your evening of entertainment. The club has a state-of-the-art sound system and DJ booth, as well as a large exterior patio, which is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine. The club has plasma TVs, high tech decor, a dance floor, and a strip club downstairs that is quite tasteful. It also hosts parties, events and even concerts. You'll find some of the best local and foreign DJs at the Arena, and you might even spot a local celebrity or two while you're there.

Assol
This great club is designed to look like a large ship. If you're looking for a change of pace from the typical nightclub spot, Assol might be just what you've been searching for. It features a great menu of sea food, and a dance floor that regularly features Euro and Russian Pop music. The staff is dressed as sailors or pirates, in keeping with the ship theme, which adds to the fun of the experience. It's usually packed on weekends, but if you're looking for a great seafood dinner in a less crowded environment, stop by on a weeknight.

Captain Morgan
Captain Morgan is a hot spot for the A-crowd in Odessa. It attracts quite a crowd on the weekends, so you'll want to get reservations and come early. It's located downtown, and features great food and plenty of music to enjoy. The club doesn't actually have a dance floor, but that won't stop you from enjoying the great hip-hop music. Popular in both the summer and winter seasons, you owe it to yourself to spend an evening at Captain Morgan when visiting Odessa.

Cosmo
If you're looking for a club with a truly state-of-the-art sound and light system, you'll thrill to the experience you'll have at Cosmo. It's a huge nightclub with a spacious dance floor and plenty of electronic music. The club features the area's best DJs, and attracts a large crowd. On most nights, the crowd tends to be a bit on the younger side, but this of course varies depending on the evening's DJ. On the nights when a headline DJ is performing, Cosmo really packs people in. Enjoy some time on the second floor, where you'll have a spectacular view of the dance floor. However, if you're looking for a great dinner along with your entertainment, Cosmo is probably not the spot for you.
