A small tucked away bar with a focus on traditional Russian spirits and Russian heritage. Really creative cocktails and friendly and elegant service. Well worth a visit for geeky boozehounds and simple tourists alike.

Cocktail bar in the heart of St.Petersburg where, despite its rather spartan decoration, the professionalism of the staff in the art of preparing cocktails is fabuluos. Amazing experience and highly recommended to all the cocktail lovers.

Step through the archway off the street into the courtyard to another world, and the entrance to orthodox Bar. Beautiful decor. Great service. Fully stocked bar, ambience galore. Great for cocktails. A must do for St Petersburg.
