Cynic Bar is something of an institution in St. Petersburg. An archetypal Russian dive bar, Cynic is basically a room with tables and benches where you can buy cheap beer and food - and therefore meets all the exacting criteria of its highly discerning patrons. Start your night here by getting slowly stewed on a Cobra beer whilst tucking into the house speciality - fried bread with garlic. Once suitably sozzled, stagger around shouting 'na zdorovie' at random people and making new friends. Bear in mind that they sometimes have fancy dress events here, so best arrive in a Batman costume to be on the safe side...

I went to check this place out and found no sign of it's existence at the address. After talking to a knowledgeable Russian friend of mine he informed me that it is now closed down. Hopefully it pops up again somewhere soon as most Petersburg clubs do, it sounds bomb.
Is this place still around? I'd love to go.
best bar in the world. literally. i miss it so much... i would move back just to drink there. and - they used to have real absinthe. maybe they still do...
Cynic Bar is the best bar in St. Petersburg! I go every time i'm in town
I'd heard that chicks here got wasted and took their tops off. No such luck when I was here but still had a good time anyway. The Russians sure know how to drink!
