The high-tech pyramid-shaped centre for culture and entertainment is new to Kazan's skyline, erected next to the Bulak in 2002 to the design of the husband-and-wife architect team of Viktor and Gulsine Tokarev. The seven-level, 31.5-metre (103-foot) tall Pyramid accommodates 2,500 visitors and 500 staff.

The main centre of gravity in the Pyramid is its 1130-seat concert space with a parterre, which can be promptly converted to a dance floor. The Pyramid hosts rock and pop acts, as well as official events, festivals (e.g. Kazan Film Festival and Tatar Zhyry pop pageant), competitions and conventions. A bar is tucked away in the recesses of the concert space, to make sure no one in the audience needs to leave the room for drinks, snacks, echpochmaki or tea. The Pyramid also houses a nightclub, health centre, café, panoramic two-level restaurant on the top floors, beauty salon, and New Century television and radio studio.
