in Tverskoy & Novoslobodsky

Giant murals depicting Russian countercultural icons – Vladimir Vysotsky, Shnur and Sergei Bodrov Jr – observe a merry crowd of hipsters ticking off new items on the endless list of local and foreign craft beers. It is unambitiously local with occasionally sloppy service, but full of loyal regulars and great for a quiet conversation over a pint or two.
