The Best Bars in Moskovsky District, St Petersburg

The Moskovsky District can feel overwhelmingly big compared to the centre of St Petersburg. The roads are long, and the bars are spread out. That doesn’t mean a good night out isn’t possible – it’s just important to know exactly where you are headed. Here are some of our suggestions.

1. Vinoteka Classico

Bar, Tapas

It’s all about the wine. Vinoteka is a bar and wine shop where you can browse through an extensive collection of products from all over the world and enjoy a glass or two right on the spot. An experienced sommelier will provide expert advice and help pick a snack of cheese or meat to go along with the wine.

2. Pobeda

Bar, European, Russian

The place to drink like a Russian, this bar calls itself a Soviet pub and delivers a stylised interior and menu. The couches are shaped like Soviet cars, all sorts of knick-knacks are hanging on the walls, and the bar looks like a Soviet locomotive. A fun place to have a drink and a meal – perhaps try some vodka to get you in the local mood.

3. Floor 41

Bar, Restaurant, Fusion

A drink enjoyed with a panoramic view is always a good choice. Floor 41 provides just that – a bar and restaurant overlooking St Petersburg. Since the city centre is very low, with no tall buildings allowed, you can basically see all across the city. A great place for a romantic evening – a drink while watching the sun set over St Petersburg.

4. Feromon Lounge Bar

Bar, Cafe, European

Fermon Lounge Bar operates according to the principle of an anticafé. Here you pay for the time spent in the place, and in return you get a complimentary shisha and unlimited tea. If you want to have an alcoholic drink or some food, there is a menu to choose from, but at an extra cost. There are also plenty of board games available, so coming with a group of friends is highly recommended.

5. Druzhba

Bar, Street Food

The type of place you’d come to when in search of some street food and a beer. The drinks menu is pleasantly extensive and the food perfect for a late-night snack. There is also a comprehensive shisha menu if need be. This is one of the few bars of its kind in this area, so it might be fairly full over the weekend, so either come prepared to party or choose a more tranquil location.

6. Finnegan's

Bar, Street Food

An Irish pub needs no introduction – a local watering hole where beer is flowing freely and friends meet up for after-work drinks. Or maybe it’s the place you go to alone and meet new friends. In any case, there is always a pint of Guinness on tap and some greasy pub grub to wash it all down. Not an experimental place, but a safe choice.

7. Gradus Farengeyta

Bar, Street Food

It’s all about the beer at this bar, because it isn’t just a bar or a restaurant, but a whole microbrewery. There are five types of house-made beers on tap if you’re in the mood to try a local brew, or various cocktails if beer is not your thing. Of course, beer snacks are in abundance, and the atmosphere here is very lively with live music hosted regularly.
