Located in the delightful Hotel Astoria, the Kandinsky Bar is where the elite of St Petersburg like to wet their whistles.
Named after the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, famous for being one of the pioneers of the Abstract art movement, the bar abounds with luxury and class, amid a stylish décor. Wealthy patrons come here to enjoy an extravagant cocktail or sample some of the exclusive whiskeys on offer, while leaning back, smoking one of the many fine cigars and conversing with other affluent locals and ex pats. The bar also has a selection of tantalizing desserts and light meals for those feeling a little peckish. Open 24 hours a day and with live music in the evenings, this is one of the most comfortable and fashionable places in town.
