Business Description

This former Ukrainian social club still boasts its Soviet-themed decor, but it now draws creative types who like the low-key boho vibe. There's free entertainment almost every night at 7pm, thanks to KGB's excellent, eclectic reading series covering various genres (fiction, science fiction, poetry, and so forth). (The readings are usually done by 9pm, if you don't like literature with your beer.) And it stays open very late, so it's where the other waiters and bartenders go when their shifts are done.
