Drink For a dark, smoky atmosphere, you could do worse
than Bar Beer, which is on the main street, just off Ploshad
Volkovo, heading towards the monastery. They only sell beer: if
you're looking for anything other than beer, you would be better off
heading to Ars Café, which is located inside a theatre next to the
Bear's Corner hotel. There are three main sections to Ars Café, an
upstairs, with comfortable sofas, which is often busy, a downstairs
section, with dance floor and a big long table for larger groups,
and a back room, which you have to pay to get into, but is very
comfortable, and is primarily supposed to be used to smoke Kalyan
(Shisha). Across the road from Ars Café is Tarzan, a higher end
establishment, which is a restaurant by day. Dark inside, with a
jungle theme. The bar Silver is on Ulitsa Svobody, near the Ulitsa
Pobedy junction. Pleasant inside, with a very silver theme. They
also serve food. Bristol, on Kirova, is nice, but pricey.
Aktor, a studenty bar a few years ago, has now become a seedy,
unpleasant place, and Cocktail Bar, next door, threaten to serve you
"Cancer" (a mis-translation of Crab), but that's the least of your
worries - bad vodka, appalling service, and a joke of a toilet means
it's better avoided.
Buy Go along Deputatskaya st. and you'll find several curious
shops of traditional cloths (6/1), amulets (15) and stone (15/43).
Kiosks at the museums and rooms of souvenirs inside them are another
opportunity to give a look and buy something.
