Entertainment & Nightlife in Belarus

Belarus has a growing nightclub scene and Minsk nightlife is particularly vibrant. Most clubs play Russian and Belarusian pop music and the discos often go on all night. Some venues also have cabaret shows, and many Minsk clubs offer billiards and casinos too. Nightclubs in Belarus are popular with all ages, and not dominated by young people.

Whilst Belarus might not have the bar and café culture of some cities in Europe, it has plenty of restaurants and most of these will be more than happy to serve you drinks.


A thriving cultural scene with opera, ballet, theatre, circus and puppet theatre can be found in Minsk. Brest also has a renowned puppet theatre. Tickets can be bought in advance at underground stations or at the Central Theater Ticket Office (Skoriny 13). Same-day tickets are only available at the venue in question. Minsk now has a reasonable selection of restaurants, some of which offer live music. There are also discos, music venues and bars in the city. Many clubs are open all night.

There are two defining characteristics of a night out in Minsk: friendliness and strangeness. You’ll encounter both at the same time, in the same place and in ample portions. You’ll also notice an over-abundance of tables and alleged entertainment. Nightclubs and bars seem to want to be cabaret-style restaurants, and vice versa. It’s as if the people of Minsk can’t have a good time if you’re not sitting down. Entrance to nightclubs is often pricier for a ticket that grants you the privilege of sitting down. Mingling, however, is better done at the bar or on the dance floor. Another thing to keep in mind is that Minsk is a sprawling city. You can’t really bounce from one venue to another in the same area – so plan your night before you head out and aim for a specific region. Streets are safe at night.
