Shchit I Mech information
In an all-too-appropriate location opposite the former Lubyanka prison, this novelty place is also known as the ‘KGB bar’. You can’t miss it, with the emblem of the former security service hanging prominently in the windows. Inside, the Soviet paraphernalia continues: the centrepiece in the dining room is a replica of the Felix Dzerzhinsky statue that once graced Lubyanskaya pl. The menu features Soviet specials – mains such as chicken Kiev and pelmeni , served more often than not with 100g of vodka.
