Cabaret Restaurants
Enjoy a Russian Folk Show
While Savouring Russian Food


Looking for cabaret restaurants in St Petersburg, Russia? Want to be entertained while sampling local food? If so, read on and get ready for a laugh...

St. Petersburg's cabaret restaurant scene is less extensive than Moscow's, but it is expanding as quickly as the city itself. Here we want to share with you a bunch of restaurants we have visited and liked that boast everything from little Russian folk shows, alternative live piano music and jazz performances to exciting belly dance shows and unique mini musicals.

While the shows are in Russian, they are visually enjoyable and the atmosphere is relaxed and arty with a vaudevillian feel in certain places. They play almost all year round at any time of the week. And of course, the food is good too!

If you are looking for an innovative combination between restaurant and show and you fancy a laugh while tasting our local Russian delicacies, then check out our list of cabaret restaurants below. Maybe you will find something that pleases your palate and sense of funniness!
