New Holland Island is a perfect spot for almost every type of occasion and activity in St Petersburg.

Above all, New Holland has a number of cozy and stylish bars, perfect for enjoying signature cocktails or a glass of wine. Culture Trip has rounded up the best bars in New Holland – get ready for an amazing night out.
Ryumochnaya takes the concept of a traditional ryumochnaya and gives it a contemporary twist, with minimalist design, a great menu and an atmosphere perfect for both a relaxed pre-party aperitivo or a long evening in the company of friends. The alcohol menu is built around home-made liquors, made from lemon, cherry, honey, raspberry, and even dill. The food menu mostly consists of small snacks, although the centerpiece is the home-made dumplings made with different kinds of meat.
Well known for its delicious menu of Israeli street food choices, Bekitzer also offers a great bar menu. Home-brewed beer and wine from Israel as well as a range of signature cocktails make a great formula for an amazing evening. Make sure to try their speciality Halva Brandy, made with brandy and the famous Middle Eastern sweet halva, their Tahini Sour, made with rum, grapefruit juice and some spices, as well as their Olive Shamash with eggs white, Cointreau and citrus juices.
A restaurant and club, Kuznya House caters to all and guarantees a lovely evening, whether you’re after cocktails or dinner with drinks. Inspired by the design of mid-century St Petersburg flats, the atmosphere is relaxed and casual, perfect for a romantic date or hangout with friends. Outstanding items on their bar menu include their signature cocktails, such as the Zombie B-Boy with several different kinds of rum, the Kuznya Negroni, a twist on the classic, and the tequila-based AREYOULOONEK.
True Georgian hospitality, mixed with a great local wine, is the perfect recipe for a great evening, and that is just what you can find at Mamo. There are numerous tasty choices on this menu, as well as unique Georgian drinks, from delicious local wines (both red and white), to cognac and the famous chacha, a spirit akin to vodka.
