-style’ meant something so specific even locals weren’t really sure what it meant. But now that the World Cup
is finally coming to Russia, the home-grown bar scene has been increasing in popularity and spreading its warmth across the city. Surely we cannot include all the options available to visitors; however, if you’re looking for places to imbibe in style and comfort, we’ve made this list for you.
