The musicians were superb, the drinks (white wine, rose wine, cocktails) were quite bad and spoiled the general impression. Also, the toilets are horrible — how difficult would it be to install normal doors there, so that other customers don't see who is inside? Right...now it's just embarrassing and uncouth.More

We went there during a long week end break. They have live music every night with awesome musicians. The bartender will always answer to your desires when it's about cocktail elaboration ! Definitely the best place we've been in our evenings spent in St Petersburg.

A classic jazz club -- attentive crowd, creative musicians, a little grungy around the edges. We got there early and pulled up a seat on a window ledge, sipping vodka until, around 10 pm, when some nondescript guy say down at the upright piano. "Nondescript"...until fingers touched keyboard. I won't claim that it's the greatest jazz you ever heard, but the guy was truly good. As the night went on, more players arrived (jams only, no scheduled performers) -- some taking the stage, some waiting their turn at the designated table -- and the crowd swelled to standing room only. At some point, they seemed to start asking a cover charge, but us early arrivers got in free. Sadly, fatigue caught up with us relatively early -- 1 am, or so --just as the joint really started to swing. A great place to be if your U.S. body clock is keeping you awake (we had been in country for a week, so not so much for us). Next time, we'll take a nap and stay all night.More

Small and intimate, with a cozy atmosphere and a decent variety of drinks including creative cocktails, this bar is great entertainment for late nights in St. Petersburg. Local and invited musicians jam from 11 PM until 3 AM on any given night. Highly recommended!

Intimate ultra cool live Jazz bar serving a wonderful collection of whiskey and other cocktails and drinks. Went here on two separate nights: both times the place was packed and full of life. If you’re looking for a cracking night out in St Petersburg, then...this is the venue.More

Spent a month in St Petersburg and this place was a regular for me and friends. Good music, honest musicians, good crowd and friendly atmosphere. Would stop by in for a drink, listen to some music and then move onwards.

Was alive and crowded till the wee hours of the morning. It was packed with locals. There was live jazz music. Everyone was enjoying themselves. Fun and local flavor.
