    Best place for a get together or after work party. Live music sets the right mood, staff is amazing especially the bartender Pavel who is the core of a guaranteed fun night!

    Lenin might be sitting at the next table or so it would seem. Authentic Russian. Vodka, salmon, herring. Post theater, pre theater or preparing a coup this is your place .

    If you like tea- you must order the tea and stir in the cherry preserves it's AMAZING- especially paired with some of the cranberry infused vodka (my fav).

    the savory vodkas - dill, horseradish, garlic, coriander - are the way to go.

    Идеально подходит для тех, кто хочет отведать русской кухни и окунуться в домашнюю атмосферу в NY) Русская музыка, огромное кол-во наших соотечественников делают это место центром русской культуры:)

    Великолепнейшее место. Прекрасный персонал, очень душевные бармены и официанты, вкусные коктейли и совершенно не московские цены. Всем быть здесь и не раз, это даже лучше, чем Empire State!
