The imposing Odessa restaurant in Kiev

Opened in 1962, this imposing restaurant named Odessa has been appreciated as one of the top restaurants in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Recently renewed by the studio YOD Design Lab, the Odessa restaurant becomes an interesting place with a perfect combination of its traditional coziness, the wooden furniture, the long ropes, the floor-to-ceiling glass panels and warm lighting system – all of these create a special cozy atmosphere for the restaurant, especially in the evenings.

And, do you know why the restaurant was named Odessa? “Odessa is a rather original city, with its inexpressible ethnic flavour and centuries-old history, which is located at the seaside of the Black Sea in the South of Ukraine. You can truly understand and come to love Odessa only once you have visited it.This is why we didn’t aim at simply reproducing the spirit of this unique city. Instead, we were trying to identify invisible associative links through which the bright image of the place would be formed.”, explained YOD Design Lab.
