Night Life Yerevan: Bars - Discos - Clubs

Tour Armenia
Updated 2014

DRINKING YEREVAN

You can get liquor at almost any cafe, restaurant and even some bistros, so if its a drink you want, you'll find plenty of places at which to enjoy it. But sweaty humping while swilling still are reserved for the disco lands, and just like cafes, they compete for bragging rights. A selective list in Yerevan.

Bars are more of a winter phenomenon, places where locals go to escape the bitter cold. In the summer, outdoor cafes are the real venues, but bars can let you beat the heat in air-conditioned venues. The more popular this year:

KARIOKE

Believe it or not, the karioke feeling has swept through Yerevan, with reservations REQUIRED for entry to the two venues:

DISCOS - DANCING

There is a distinctly Soviet tradition of decadence that rules many night clubs, with erotic or semi-erotic shows at many venues. The younger, trendier ones are full-blown western experiences. Venues can get rowdy, so be more careful here then you would elsewhere.

The prices are roughly the same, entrance is between 1500-2000 AMD, women get in free on certain nights, and drinks run about 400-500 AMD for beers up to 1000-1500 AMD for hard drinks.

2x2
Khandjian St, by Tekeyan Center.
Still the most popular disco in town, three floors of entertainment and bump and grind. 1st floor is a bar, 2nd a restaurant (1000AMD +) basement has disco. 1500 AMD entry, women enter free on certain nights. Drinks: tequila 1000 AMD, Beer 500-600 AMD.

Allen and Ellen
The blue building opposite Hotel Yerevan, Abovian St.
A favorite of the expat community, there are two dance floors, one for teenagers (500 AMD entry, open to midnight). The main dance floor fills to capacity on weekends, operates until 3 am. Entry fee is 2500 AMD, women enter free on certain nights. Building includes billiards (2000 AMD), gym/swimming ($30/mo.).

Aqua
Alec Manukian on the River Getar (by Yerevan St. U)
Sitting over the rive, the building features a waterfall running over the front of the building. Lively on weekends, and handy to the Cafes on Khandjian. 1500 AMD entry, drinks comparable to 2x2.

Astral
Next to Opera, cavernous 750 sm hall in basement.  Room to express thyself and rock thy soul.  The dance hall for 2003.

Monte Cristo
Vazgen Sarkisian St., near republic Square
Cafe, restaurant and gay disco.  If you don't look the part, you'll be bounced by the beefy man in a suit at the door, and no, he's just into rough foreplay, his fist is for real. Loads of after hours action in the side street.  This is as publicly decadent as Armenia gets.

Tornado
Sargisian (Bangladesh) St. just off of Leningradian and Shiraz (Ashtarak Rd.) roads, big building with steps leading to the entrance.
The disco is away from center, not as popular as it once was, but the venue is large with pounding music and night shows. Food, games, bar. Entry varies, some nights women free, men always charged. Entry 1500 AMD, drinks 500-1000 AMD.

Tsovinar Beach
