Picasso Nightclub Celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Issue 102, June 2017.
When Lviv’s hopping Picasso Club opened up in 1997, it’s hard to believe the city’s nightlife scene was quiet and even shadowy. Lviv has changed so much since then, and the city’s nightlife scene has matured and diversified. Against the odds, the Picasso Club has been able to keep up with the changing times. Today, Picasso is one of Lviv’s hottest nightclubs with huge crowds every night of the week. With great drink specials, a massive sound system, stylish décor inspired by its eponymous Spanish artist, and friendly staff, it’s easy to see why.
