Pivbar – My favorite watering hole

Pivbar is, in my opinion, one of the coolest drinking establishments. It’s always packed and buzzing (see the picture – that’s Wednesday! Imagine what a weekend is like!). Curiously enough, this buzz lends you some odd kind of privacy amidst the crowd. 

This is a great place for local and imported craft beer: it’s inexpensive, and the selection is wide – they usually have a couple of dozens on tap and over two hundred bottled. Also, this is one of the few craft bars where the food is actually quite decent. And they now accept credit cards, so no more fumbling in your pockets for cash – what joy!

After you’ve had a pint or two, get out of the bar and use the underpass to get on the other side of Tverskaya street – then hop on the recently installed swings and enjoy swinging away!

There is one thing to remember if you are going to Pivbar: the name translates as ‘beer bar’ (unimaginative, I know), therefore asking locals for directions might get a bit tricky – better take down the address.

They have recently opened two new spots, but I still prefer the original one. However, if you want “this place, but less crowded’, you might want to opt for the Pivbar located at Ulitsa 1905 Goda subway station.
