Fashion TV is shown everywhere in Almaty, but World Fashion takes the city’s obsession with the fashion channels a step further with walls lined with the names of cities and designers, sleek modern décor and an abundance of widescreen TVs screening – you guessed it – World Fashion TV. There’s also a dimly-lit karaoke room where you’ll find Kazakhstani fashionistas belting out Russian pop hits, and a relaxing summer terrace for super-stylish cigarette breaks. Meanwhile, the food menu changes daily to offer Italian cuisine on Mondays, Oriental on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, grills on Thursdays, no food on Fridays and all of the above on Saturdays and Sundays. Though let’s face it, any fashionista worth their Prada prefers to drink than (God forbid) eat. The bar is at its busiest during the summer after midnight, when DJs man the decks and get the glamour girls flocking onto the dancefloor. Be sure to look sharp if you’ve any hope of ducking beneath the notoriously taut velvet ropes.
