drink & dance the night away

Welcome to

Jump into the bustling St Petersburg nightlife with our insider's guide to the best city's bars, pubs, and clubs.

The nightlife in St Petersburg is sparkling. You can eat, drink, and dance around the clock. From lit jazz halls and Irish-style pubs to groovy strip-clubs or underground bars, and dance clubs the city offers plenty of ways to have fun after the sun goes down.

With the opening of new venues such as cocktail or wine bars, karaoke or disco bars, and others, the city's nightlife has evolved a lot in the past decade. This growth has led St Petersburg nightlife to become the most varied and friendly in the country.

Here you won't find all the glitz and glam of Moscow's nightlife, but a more down to earth and easy-going atmosphere where anyone from everywhere can experience a pleasant and safe night out without breaking the bank.

How do I know that? Simply because I have been living in St Petersburg for the past 5 years, and time to time I like to party myself.

That said, if you love boogieing, boozing, and partying like locals do, then head out to Ulitsa Dumskaya and Rubinstein. There you can find all you need for an awesome night out. When going keep in mind that each place has its own style, audience, and type of music, including rules. So before you go, learn how to dress, and what to expect, and remember to smile.
