Pub for an old friends outing in the city center Nizhny just next to Ibis hotel, somewhat a la sovietique ambiance, cheap & trendy interior , old-fashioned music of the 60-70s .. good and simple foods, a nice place to drink & get together.. a pub to relax)

Although you enter the cafe down very steep steps in a less than welcoming area [not dangerous] because of the state of surrounding buildings the interior is very soviet private residence style. Good food and good music, some interesting characters!

Bufet is the only underground style bar - restaurant i've seen in Nizhniy. The beer is cheap, and the vodka too. The food is like pub food, nothing fancy but good. The place is really random, you can have techno music one day and classical the next, the decoration is veru eclectic. It's a relaxing, cool place.
