Went to El Pushka, ordered shots of tequila and sangrita. None of the three in our group spoke Russian. We all concluded that the tequila was watered down. A friend later told me this is what bar staff sometimes do to tourists in Minsk. The...sangrita was made of ketchup but that's another issue.More

El Pushka used to be my fav bar in Minsk. Every time my friends came here I suggested going there: fun, dances, tequila. But seems like the concept of Mexican fun changed into “buy drinks or go”. Last weekend my friend and I visited the...bar at night. Straight away (we barely took off our coats, one foreign barmen came up to is with menu. Firstly he gave us only one menu and we both were trying to find some alcohol-free cocktail or some cola/juice as we didn’t want to drink tequila. The guy was staying like a wall waiting for order. I asked him to give us five minutes to decide and he replied that it’s better to decide right now. I said that we needed time to find what do we want. And his reply was “Girls, this is not a disco club”. Sorry, what? I didn’t say I was not going to order anything, I asked for time to see anything in that menu when it’s quite dark bar. Later on the man went to the security guy and spoke with him for a while and on the time we were leaving bar the intonation of security guy saying “good guy” wasn’t really hospitable. Seems it was my last time in that bar. Such poor service and lack of hospitality and politeness won’t play good for the place.More

I was obsessed with visiting this bar after recommendation of my friend and we visited it on my birthday. They have a lot of different cocktails or may mix it like you want! Very good music, you may dance all night! After 12 they have...live vocal, and it was super, all bar was singing and dancing like one big wave! Thank you for a great mood and a birthday cake!) P.S. 5 zl from the man in a suite ;)More

Poped in for a drink and check it out. Must say the place is great, extensive selection of rums, nice cocktails, the atmosphere inside was fantastic. The staff are very friendly and had fun with the customers which definitely adds to the whole experience. Definitely...a must go if you're out in Minsk. Will be going back when in Minsk.More

The service was great. The bar tender spoke English well, not so common in belarus. I took a drink with takila and watermelon and ate nachos. I recommend to take 2 sause with the nachos, salsa and chesse. The place located in a street who...has many bars and restaurant in the center of the city. The prices are not cheap compared to other place around belarus.More

Went along with friends for a quick drink and ended up staying a while to listen to the live Latin music and soak up the vibe. A hole in the wall establishment with friendly staff, the drinks are delicious. So glad we decided to drop...in. A must-visit in Minsk.More
