Favorite place 22.13

The name of the restaurant – Favorite Place – is perfectly reasonable since it welcomes hipsters and businessmen as well as guests of the northern capital. The place is famous for its cocktail menu from around the world. Non trivial zoning of the dining rooms with the abundance of stairs and historically preserved ceiling covings with moldings give the restaurant a certain St. Petersburg charm with a slight touch of glamour. The menu gives a choice of European and Pan Asian cuisine and a wide variety of shishas. The place also has the confectionery shop. Breakfasts are offered on the weekdays until 12:00 p.m. and on the weekends until 6:00 p.m. The weekend evenings are usually noisy and crowded. This is a great place for pre-party, a must visit place, a trademark of Konushennaya Square. Nevsky Prospekt with its places of interest is close at hand. The restaurant is equally suitable for both dinners after 6.00 p.m. and a couple of cocktails after 10.13 p.m. (hence the name, 22.13).

The summer terrace, which occupies a vast space in the courtyard of Konushennaya Square, is a perfect place for dancing in the open air and contemplating the domes of the Church of the Spilled Blood.

    Some of these venues are/were great like Barbaresco. Pity it’s closed now, I hope not for goods.
    BarakObama bar is a cool one. There is a casual festivity atmosphere, affordable drinks. It was not meant to be a high-profile but here you can feel the spirit of a true holiday booze and might get on with fun dudes.
    Zavist bar is not mentioned here. It’s groovy bar Nevskiy prospekt at Bolshaya Konushennaya. Nice mellow music, slap-up go-go shows. The interiors is striking the eye with splendour and fresh colours. Customer service is on the level, though when it’s crowdy you gotta wait a while for some minor requests.
