What did we walk into? On our way between bars, we noticed people in the bar with paper bunny ears, so of course we had to drop in! What an interesting place- totally bizarre at midnight, but one of my favorite hilarious random memories in...Russia. Get some bunny ears, stay til midnight, don't be afraid of fireworks indoors..More

Maybe we came too early, I’m not sure but there was nothing going on and the beer wasn’t my favourite. We did not stay until midnight.

Don't go there if you are not a white skin person. I went there solo. I am 30 year old, I was well dressed with brown skin from India. I walked 1.4 km to reach this place after reading good reviews. However, this place is...meant only for Russians. P.S - I was well dressed, had just come partying from DOM 7 club which played live jazz music. DOM 7 is ten times more classy than this.More

Just go strait ahead Fontanka River and you'll come across with two rabbit-sphinx at the entrance. This will be a beggining of an extraordinary experience. Never thought I would celebrate New Year at the end of the April. So much fun, so attractive stuff, so...boozy drinks. Easy to find and worth to visit.More

A very curious experience. We haven't heard about this place before, even though we visited St. Petersburg many times. It was actually a business partner of my husband who took us there. It's a fun thing to do for a change, experience a New Year's...Eve no matter what day you come. The entertainment is fun, though you probably won't be able to experience it to the fullest if you don't speak Russian. The waiters and entertainers are really fun and sometimes stop by at your table and make you drink with them. The decor is really quirky and fits the atmosphere. Food is traditional Russian fare.More

Very interesting concept but not much offered for non-Russian speakers. It was difficult to follow what was happening, but an interesting experience nonetheless

It's a great place, we totally loved it. The word to describe this place is FUN. Don't take off your magic rabbit ears before midnight, unless you want to have sex for the next 3 years!!

We walked in to see what is hiding inside because we were intrigued by rabbit- head lions at the door. There were xmas trees and decorations and we ordered champaign( mostly because we didnt like the beer choices). They actually have entertainers on staff who...turn the basement located bar into a crazy fun party ! I hear they also have a wedding theme bar next door, cant wait to go check it out:)More

We were looking for somewhere local to have dinner at 11pm and found this place still open. It was very lively with loud music and people dressed up. We were happy to hear they were still serving food and they got a waitress who could...speak English to come and translate the menu for us. The food quality was very good, they did however forget one main course and when we asked about it they brought chicken fajita rather than rare beef fajita. Every night they celebrate new year and get the diners etc to get involved in festivities of dancing/singing. They made us feel very welcome and although this was an unexpected surprise, we enjoyed a little insight into Russian parties. There were lots of locals and also seemed to be some other tourists.More
