Hotelux KGB Bar – Soviet kitsch

If you are into Soviet themed bars, you will like this one a lot.

Unlike Russia, this bar is very small. It is cosy and warm, not cold and empty. But it doesn’t matter; the interior will throw you right in the heart of the U.S.S.R.. Well, not politically. But, you know, there is a lot of Soviet kitsch and it looks sweet. 

Walls are – of course – painted in red and Lenin looks at you drinking your Moscow Mule from more than one corner, despite the fact that he would have preferred a good beer. 

The service in this bar is phenomenal: always friendly, even during the busiest hours. And since it is a small bar, it can get crowded pretty easily. So, my advice is to go earlier and not with the biggest of groups. 

The drinks are nice: the selection of vodka is endless and there are a lot of classic cocktails with a Russian twist.
