Extreemely cosy pub in the center of my home town- Vitebsk. Great range of beer, friendly staff, delicious quisine. And last but not least- it's one of the very few places where you can hear real Belorussian language. Well done, guys!

Thanks for your feedback! Yes, we are not an Irish pub. We are an Irish pub in Belarus. And we find many similarities in Irish and Belarusian culture, as well as many historical parallels. See you again! Draniki are waiting for you.
