Calumet Ethnic Lounge Bar: This funky, ethnic and slightly edgy bar on Pushkin st., where the smell of stale smoke greets visitors, draws some of the city’s biggest ethnic and funk band fans. Performers at Calumet are seriously in sync with the crowd as they deliver their experimental, traditional, fusion or funk tunes late into the night. Be prepared to sweat, let loose dancing up close and personal with the band, cozy up with old and new friends at a candlelit table, or strike up a conversation with the people chilling outside.

Malkhaz Jazz Club was founded by Mr. Levon Malkhasyan who is one of the pioneers of jazz music in Armenia (and in the USSR). Malkhaz and his Jazz band are often credited with popularizing jazz in the country. The Jazz Club has a rather overdone interior, where you get an intuitive sense that everything is overpriced. However, if you’re lucky to see Mr. Malkhasyan performing on stage, I'm sure you'll have a real blast.
