Wood is a small friendly non-smoking bar in the Five corners neighbourhood. Here it’s possible to meet for any reason – a talk, coffee, food, drink, etc – I pick it as a universal meeting point.
Here the kitchen works full-time including the later evening hours. During the daytime they serve lunches with salads and soups at special prices for the set and treat visitors with 15% discount till 16:00. From the regular dishes I can recommend the lasagna with mushrooms, pasta or 2 kinds of quiches.
Before you decide on the drinks definitely have a chat with the barmen because they have “seasonal” wine choices off the printed menu. Wood also cooperates with small local breweries, so give the Saint-Petersburg beer a try. However sometimes the bar can run out of local specialty supplies.
Another important advantage – cards are welcome.
One Foursquare tip I like specifically. It says “When you enter the place, launch your Shazam. You will actually need it.” Music is played rather quietly but loud enough to identify the pleasant tunes you might want to add to some music storage in your mind.
In the normal course of events on weekdays Wood works from 10:00 till approximately 23:00. But if closing hour approaches and the bar is still crowded, the owner, who very often works there by himself, says with a friendly and a slightly apologetic smile “Well, looks like today we may stay a bit longer…”
