Entertainment and nightlife in Ulan-Ude

After informative sightseeing tours and pleasant walks along the streets of the capital of Buryatia, do you want to have fun and relax? We tell you what you can do in Ulan-Ude in the evening.
Mind games

Where does the chorus of Valery Meladze’s most famous song begin? Who are brainsnatchers? We have millions of facts collected in our heads that may never be useful in everyday life, but will be the correct answer to a thematic quiz question. "Fights in Ulan-Ude" is exactly the place where you will need to use logic, remember the most unobvious things and have a lot of fun. This quiz is completely original; its creator independently comes up with tasks and conducts games on various popular topics. Thus, "Fights" are often held on music, cinema, the Harry Potter universe, the "Friends" and "Scrubs" TV series, and many other topics. The city also has its own Intellectual Games Club, where you can feel like an expert from the "What? Where? When?" program and try yourself in questions of higher complexity.
Outdoor activities

Didn't have enough walks and want to spend the evening active? In winter, you can choose one of the city's skating rinks and go ice skating. Everything you need is available for rent at the outdoor skating rink at the Central Stadium or at the indoor "IceMeter" arena. After several laps, you can warm up here with hot tea or cocoa. In summer, you can get on the Ferris wheel and admire sunset Ulan-Ude. There are such attractions in the Park named after S.N. Oreshkov and Yubileiny Park. You can also rent bicycles and ride through the same parks or along the bike path on Verkhnyaya Berezovka.
Going to stand-up

For five years now, Ulan-Ude has had its own stand-up club. It consists of about ten comedians, who participate in shows of different formats two or three times a week. "Open Mics" are held once a week, where club members practice their new material, and newcomers can try to perform for the first time. You can also get to "Comedy Buddy" (when jokes are invented in front of the audience), "Rush Hour" (when audiences and comedians actively interact with each other), "Set List" (when a comedian needs to come up with a joke on a topic he heard for the first time) and creative evenings of individual club members.

Modern life has turned everything upside down and now what was considered work becomes leisure. Thus, people who spend most of their time at the computer choose manual labor as a recreation. You can sign up for master classes on creating products from clay or ceramics in Ulan-Ude. You will find information about the courses in the Dombo, "Kontur" or "Art Garage" studios. You can draw a picture as a keepsake at a master class in the "Draw a Dream" studio or over a glass of wine at the art evening "There is no Chagall without a glass". You can learn how to cook tom yum or shrimp paste at culinary master classes at the "Malevich" cafe-lecture hall.
Evening with cocktails

Quiet date or noisy party? Evening Ulan-Ude will delight you with an abundance of bars of different styles. In "Tam gde", "Gallery" and bar "41" you will be treated with signature cocktails. From the windows of "Chaikhana", "Bar 12" and Mojo panoramic bars you will have a stunning view of Ulan-Ude, which you will remember for a long time. In "Churchill", Harat’s pub and Tom Yam Bar you can listen to live music, and "Tam gde" hosts parties with electronic music almost every evening.
Night life

Nightclubs are open every night in Ulan-Ude, but the most interesting thing awaits you if you go to one of the parties organized by DJ associations. At "Nerpa" parties you will plunge into oriental mediatic rhythms intertwined with electronic music. At the meetings of the “Buryat Under”, you will not only listen to music inspired by Buryat folk songs, but also have the opportunity to play the board game Shagai Naadan, try your hand at linocut printing, or create your own bas-relief.
There are many places for a great evening relaxation in Ulan-Ude – you can go to the movies or go on an exciting quest with your friends, go to an exhibition in a museum or listen to an opera in a theater, drink a cocktail in a bar or continue exploring the city in the light of the setting sun.
