Holy Water is a friends’ bar for me so I highly recommend stopping by. First, the owners and bartenders are nice people. Second, the atmosphere is quite unique for St. Pete. Third, it’s the right place to dance your ass off (or wear high heels and makeup, no matter your gender).
The only rule of Holy Water is ‘do not be an asshole/prude’; everything else is possible here. I’d call it a hetero-friendly bar as there are plenty of theme nights (try to enter at 01:00 on Saturday or check the timetable on Instagram).
Most guests are either friends or friends of friends of friends. You can meet up musicians, writers, feminists and other intelligentsia here. And the music is good, too. There are DJs in the evening. Walls are covered with verses from the staff’s and friends’ favorite songs (Anohni, Madonna, Marylin Manson etc).
Don’t forget to take a selfie at the WC mirror (it’s perfect for that purpose).
