Meet Mavis! She is the lovely lady behind the bar at Lenin's Vodka Bar. Definitely try their specialty 'Frozen' Vodka Ciroc Pineapple shots were amazing!

Really nice vibe, good food and drinks between friends! Our waiter was really friendly and made food suggestions which are not to be regretted. The food was reasonably priced well worth every bite.

If you just want to chill listen to music and dabble in a hubly, the outside terrace is perfect!

All round great vibes

Remember ladies night Thursday nights and Happy Hour!

The theme of this bar is really cool and there is a giant selection of vodka to choose from. We stopped in for a quick drink after dinner, and it wasn't too loud or too crowded. We found a spot by the bar to stand and ordered vodka martinis. After a while, a bartender came and found stools for us to sit on. Fun place to grab a quick drink while in town.

Lovely little hidden gem. We had fun trying all the interesting drinks on the menu while lounging on the lounge chairs inside. Great music was playing and we had a wonderful time. We didnt eat, but the cocktails were delicious. They have an outside area which was bustling. Loved it.

Great atmosphere at the bar when it's filled with people on a Thursday evening. Waited for several minutes at the bar to be assisted with ordering drinks, as only 2 bar ladies were attending and the bar was quite full. The bar lady was aware of us waiting to be served after she would be finishing up with the current order. Next thing we know, we were just passed up and she served the people who came in after us and just ignored us. This after seeing us stand there for several minutes waiting for her to finish so we could order. Even when eventually served, she displayed no welcoming energy towards us. A little bit of an annoying experience, but luckily our mood was too good to be spoiled.

Other than that, the place is great to chill at. Just make sure you have patience :)

One of the wonderful things about spending a weekend in Maboneng is that there is no issue with driving under the influence! We saw a sign advertising happy hour at Lenin's Vodka Bar with R31 for all cocktails. So we took it upon ourselves to provide our full support. The service from the staff was great, with patient and sound recommendations given. We tried 4 different cocktails in all, each stood solidly on its own feet. We had a meze platter to help line the stomach, which was good.

The cocktails cost around R40 at regular prices, so this is well worth a stop anytime, not just happy hour.
