Lonely Planet review

How very post-perestroika: a headless Lenin invites you to join your comrades for a tipple behind the blood-red curtains of a modern Russian restaurant. There are heaps of caviar, a solid ice bar and more than 200 frozen vodkas, infusions and cocktails. Sable fur coats are kept on hand to loan to those stepping into the private vodka vault. For something more affordable, try the 'Five for Five' happy hour (from 4pm to 7pm weekdays and 2pm to 7pm weekends) offering excellent $5 vodka cocktails and bar bites.
