Always ready to deliver truthful and meaningful photo stories from the war zone in Donbas, let the reader see what's going on in Ukraine and around the world through my eyes without missing a single detail.

A new Coyote Ugly Saloon opened in Kyiv on July 10. Located at 9 Mechnikova St., the American themed bar has no entrance fee, but rather strict face control. 

Drink prices are about average for nightclubs in the city – Hr 30-80 for liquor drinks and shots, Hr 50-80 for cocktails and Hr 130-300 for body shots. 

The general atmosphere at the opening was rather pleasant until the  show started. The American concept bar transformed into a glamorous and vulgar parody of a rural disco. Coyotes - scantily clad bartenders - hopped atop the bar and vibrated to the music, periodically shouting to the crowd. 

The menu, despite promising pure alcohol, includes a wide variety of cocktails, both with and without alcohol, juices, soda, water and even coffee. For those who interested only in drinking, there are waitresses and a second, quieter bar in the next room, from which it is impossible to see the coyotes dancing.
