The exterior of Perestroika in GTA IV.

Perestroika is a Russian owned cabaret club in the Hove Beach district of Broker, Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV, once owned by the late Mikhail Faustin. The comedy acts there are much poorer in humor than those of Split Sides, though there are some interesting acts. Like the Split Sides, Niko can watch shows in club on his own, on a date or as an activity with a friend.

"Perestroika" means "restructuring" when translated to Russian. Perestroika is also a term commonly used internationally when referring to political and economic reforms in 1980s Soviet Union that resulted in its collapse.



The club's interior includes various rooms that serve several purposes in-game. The main feature of the club is its dining area, bar and open space (presumably used as a dance floor) fronted by a stage, where the club's acts are performed. The backstage of the club is accessible from a door to the left of the stage, connecting to the perfomer's dressing room, a QUB3D video arcade game, and a backlot of the club which leads up to the club's roof. A cloakroom is also included between the main entrance and the main room of the club.

Perestroika's shows are triggered from within the club itself; the player must first enter the club and locate the marked checkpoint to the right, where the player is intended to be seated.


The interior of Perestroika.

At night, the club is guarded by two gangsters who search guests before they enter (except the player). Depending on how far in the game the player has got the guards will react in one of two ways. If the player hasn't completed The Master and the Molotov mission, the guards will welcome them. However after this mission is completed, the guards will warn you to stay away and then attack the player.

If, however, accompanied by a friend (whilst the player is doing an activity for his friend), the guard will let them in, despite the mission completion of The Master And The Molotov. If you take Roman there after the mission Crime & Punishment, he may occasionally feel uncomfortable and says it must be where Faustin hangs out when he isn't holding hostages in his basement and shooting them. After completing The Master and the Molotov, he tells Niko it's a shame Faustin is dead because the place is going to pot.


Main article: Acts in Perestroika
