    Come to this place if you drink vodka and like to be seen at the downtown hip place. Lots of people and good music. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef

    Fun fact:: was created at the corner booth just to the right of the rear staircase.

    Swanky cocktail lounge with a tucked-away underground ambience. Legit but pricey cocktails. Felt like a bunch of people were on Ashley Madison dates.

    Goto Pravda and order the fig infused vodka on the rocks. Tastes amazing, no mixer necessary.

    Leninade cocktail goes down real easy! Brush up on your Russian before heading to the bathroom.

    Perfect for a first date, Not so loud that you can't hear each other talk.Order the ribeye sandwich, and I don't know how a restaurant can pack that much delicious into food :)

  • Sasha V.

    After the Moscow Mule, Gin Litchi is the way to go.

    Sasha Valle · April 1, 2013
  • Erik N.

    If you like strong drinks, Gogol is the only way.

    Erik Nygren · February 20, 2013
  • Vettazou

    The bohemian is maybe the best cocktail I've tried in manhattan sofar. (And have tried a loot) Go for it!

    75 different types of vodka!

    Benjamin Shyong · August 22, 2012

    Be brave. Go for the Gogol. And do it during happy hour when everything is two for one.

    Sheila Marikar · March 5, 2012
  • Noah @Noah_Xifr X.

    Elderflower fizz - best mixed liquor drink I have had in quite a while!

    Noah @Noah_Xifr Xifr · November 20, 2011
  • Alex H.

    Do NOT order the Gogol. It is a horseradish vodka served with a pickled quail egg. You've been warned.

    Alex Ho · August 27, 2011
  • Eelain S.

    whatcha doin' here if you aren't drinkin' a 'tini? as in, a martini!! and if you're feeling a lil frisky, spice it up with some caviar.. now, smack those lips & taste the awesome.

    Eelain Steketee · August 9, 2011
  • Yesbelt F.

    Try the chocolate martini. Its the best! Also try the caviar pizza - very good.

    Yesbelt Fernandez · May 26, 2010
  • Daniel S.

    Try the French martini with Ginger Vodka. Worth the change and the pineapple plays well with the hints of bitters.

    Daniel Saynt · January 10, 2010
  • Shirlene W.

    The drinks are amazing!

    Shirlene W. Henry · September 10, 2014

    Potato pancakes + creme fraiche. White Sturgeon caviar. Vodka shots. Oysters, too. Spasibo!

    Chris L · September 8, 2014

    Infused vodka

    Matt Bress · September 5, 2014

    Great cocktails. Fancy vodkas.

    Patrick Hayes · May 29, 2014
  • Andrea R.

    Don't go upstairs unless you have to pee. There's nothing but bathrooms and the intoxicating smell of urinal cakes...

    Andrea Rishmawi · May 4, 2014
  • Dens

    I know you're here for fancy vodka cocktails, but if you're hungry, trust me, go for the fish plate. It's so good (esp when you make little sandwiches w/ tortilla things) I may go back just for those.

    Dens · April 2, 2014
  • Ray L.

    Cozy but not crowded, lively but not too loud. Perfect for conversation over cocktails (and by cocktails I mean an extensive vodka cocktail menu). Ideal date spot. #flex

    Ray Lin · January 24, 2014
  • Helen Z.

    Worst pizza I ever had , also it's baby size ...

    Helen Zhabko · August 16, 2013
  • Vicky B.

    The orange juice mixer has grapefruit in it and it tastes amazing- that with vodka was superb. That caviar martini was mediocre at best...

    Vicky B · March 5, 2013
  • Justin K.

    Worst Old Fashioned ever

    Justin Kadis · January 6, 2013
  • Melissa H.

    Coconut martini is amazing! Topped with fresh coconut shavings and not too sweet

    Melissa Helal · November 24, 2012
  • Minda A.

    I feel like I'm in a James Bond movie whenever come here. With soundtrack. New goal with my friend is to try every drink in the menu. Had the caviar martini. Fig-infused is next.

    Minda A · July 13, 2012
  • brian b.

    Happy hour: two amazing cocktails for $13. Plus homemade chips (and, if you order a Gogol, a pickled quail egg). Best deal on earth

    brian braiker · April 27, 2012
  • Martin R.

    Check out the upstairs bar on fri and sat, less crowded and cool vibes

    Martin Roe · March 31, 2012
  • Elie K.

    my favorite russian bar in the city...always a fun crowd. they make great vodka fusion cocktails.

    I'm not a fan of vodka but this place has me maybe thinking about getting around to changing my mind. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The bartender isn't mean, he's just Russian. Best Bloody Mary I've ever had in my life.

    Order the Gogo > Horseradish Vodka & Pickled Quail Egg

    Brian Jeremy · April 24, 2011
  • Veronica

    Unless you want to drink a pickle, don't try the caviar martini. After this, pickles will no longer be delicious.

    Veronica · March 26, 2011
  • Andrey B.

    Кухня отстой. Можно заказывать только закуски к пиву.
