Amongst the best first because of its atmosphere, but mostly because of the very efficient, highly professional and above all friendly staff. I rarely go to hotel bars that i find usually sad. But when I stay at the Astoria, I often go for a coffee in the morning, a tea in the afternoon or a late night drink.

Great place to just sit comfy and relax, have a small something to eat, drink coffee etc. been to that bar/lounge maybe 10 times already and I love it. Smoking is allowed there so I, after a meal, fire up a cigar and just relax. Hotel Astoria, where the bar is located, is great too, very classy old style and also very old - Rasputin used to visit the place frequently, trying sneak in to some countess's bedroom, that's before he got poisoned, shot, stabbed and finally thrown into the river close by. Highly recommended.

You can find other bars, but the notoriety of the Astoria (Hitler planned to stay there) lures you so that you can say you were there. It's nice to sit in the bar and have a cocktail. They're expensive, but that's pretty much the norm with cocktails in St. Petersburg. I'd go back though because I like that type of atmosphere.

We had a meal here and stayed at the hotel next door. The food was excellent but the drinks very expensive. It was very quiet so lacked atmosphere, however the food made up for it.

The best mixed drinks in Russia from the bartender! Sevice in the lounge was very attentive. A very good place to relax in a refined environment.
