“A Russian corner of Midtown”
Review of Russian Vodka Room

Russian Vodka Room
Ranked #117 of 874 Nightlife in New York City
Attraction details
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Russian Vodka Room is directly across the street from Russian Samovar, another hangout for expats, tourists and Russophiles. RS has a bit of an older crowd, more old-line Russians, while RVR has a younger crowd of New Russians and more Americans. The food here is no better than RS, just OK. Sometimes gets very crowded, especially on Russian holidays. There's a pianist but no dancing; the place is very small and cramped. People shuttle back and forth to RS. OK if you take the two bars together as an experience of a Russian corner of New York.

We didn't try the food but love the drinks here. Very strong! Great entertainment, we loved watching the crowd get into the Russian music and the night we were there, a singer. We now make this spot a ritual for the friendly attentive staff, interesting, entertaining music and great drinks after a broadway show.

Went to Russian Vodka Room with collegues.

Great atmosph. ,amusing Soviet memorabilia, and dim lights.

Subtly non-intrusive in house pianist.

Drinks are a definite experience.(a very positive one)
Cuisine on par with the best restrts. I've been to.

Service very nice, a perfect compromise between the continuous hassling as is habitual in the US and the "not going to bother you at all" disappearing act ,common in some places in Europe.

Highly recommend.
