DesignBar - a modern city bar, which is always nice to be. And day at lunch and at the end of the working day to run as an aperitif, or come and stay the evening, enjoy a delicious dinner, see friends or meet new modern nice people. This gastronomic bar with great emphasis on a new supply of quality food. We want to show that an unusual and tasty food can be available and the price, and to understand. And you can see the menu and quite familiar dishes, they have a different cooking techniques or feed. In general, this is the place where you can get and the gastronomic and aesthetic pleasure. Much attention is paid directly filling the bar, an unusual cocktail menu will take a lot of pleasure. Effect, the cocktails - it is also an explosion of taste and a great mood, and alcohol is not the dominant ingredient.

We somewhat stumbled across design bar on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out - turned out to be an amazing decision! The decor is edgy but comfortable and the bar staff were amazing. Their English was very good, and so were the cocktails! We were even lucky enough to meet the owner of the bar who was very hospitable... More

this was the nicest restaurant with the best food we found this week in Irkutsk. Very nice modern ambiente, surprising good food, wonderful waitresses. It is not far from the center, but feels to be a little outside. It is worth it! Try the steaks!

All dishes are very delicious, including salad, main course, soup and desert. Waiter can speak English, which is not so common in Irkutsk. Boss and waiters are all very warmhearted, specially print a English menu for us. We had been here for two times in three days. It deserves. I should say, this is the best restaurant in Irkutsk that... More

The meal was surprisingly good for the price. The lunch menu offers a broad lists of options. A fresh salad and a hot meal around 300 rubles. Highly recommended.
