Last night, the official lounge area for the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest participants and guests, also known as the Euroclub, opened its doors to all those willing to dive into the night life of Eurovision. This year's Euroclub is hosted by the Arena Entertainment complex just in the middle of Kyiv and is the largest venue for Eurovision Song Contest related night activities ever provided.
This year's Euroclub consists of three entertainment areas. The first one is the Beer House on the 1st floor, which offers a sociable atmosphere and guarantees communication. A glass of beer will foster the obtaining of new friends and will help to refresh your strength after tense rehearsals,
press conferences and crazy Kyiv shopping. The second is the Night Club on the 4th floor which ensures non-stop parties during the Eurovision week. The third one is the Big Open-Air Stage, the amphitheater-style area in the middle of the complex. During the following week, the Open-Air Stage will offer many large-scale official and special Eurovision Song Contest-related activities, as well as some pleasant surprises for all participants and guests.
An exclusive advantage of this year's Euroclub is its location, which is only three minutes walking distance from the Sports Palace, the official venue of the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest. To provide the highest level of comfort, shuttle buses will be running from the Sports Palace to the Euroclub every day as of 8 pm.
The official opening of the Euroclub took place last night and was filled with exclusive and bright highlights, such as the drums show by Art Nova, performances by the National Virskiy Dance Ensemble of Ukraine, break dance ballet Quest, and other artists. A surprise was prepared for all
participants and guests of the club: they were welcomed by hosts who were dressed in traditional Ukrainian costumes. A long-lasting fireworks show that concluded the marvelous eve made the opening ceremony unforgettable for those who attended.
“This year's Eurovision Song Contest is really the most fancy and fascinating Eurovision Song Contest that I have ever been to,” said Svante Stockselius, the Eurovision Song Contest Supervisor. “Organizational issues and conditions are perfect, as well as the both official and lounge venues for the Eurovision Song Contest.“
