The name of this bar goes up to the “Sid and Nancy” movie because “cider” in Russian sounds just the same as “Sir” with an R on the end. Anyway, there’s nothing about the famous movie inside. Instead, it’s all about the cider.
People coming to St. Pete from Moscow claim that there is close to no cider in Moscow. That’s right: St. Pete is blooming with both draft local beer (IPA, APA and all you can imagine) and draft local cider (apple, pear, blackcurrant, plum, and others).
I adore cider both from Barnaul and Bretagne; you can find many nice bottle ciders here at Cider and Nancy. They also serve food (which is not too regular for a bar), and it’s tasty, too.
In the summer, the windows are opened and the not-so-huge bar is filled with the breeze. There are also wide windowsills and in the evening you can see people smoking and chatting outside. In the winter, well, everything happens inside, but smokers have to get out anyway.
Earlier, all the bar life in St. Pete was crowded on the Rubinsteina street; now, Belinskogo, Mayakivskogo and Nekrasova street are even more alive than Rubinsteina. Try everything and choose for yourself. Bar-hopping might be the best way to spend your (not only) Friday night.
