Our Tips

TIP: Other St Petersburg nightclubs worth checking out which are centrally located are Santa Barbara (A fashionable place in the city center with several zones, including karaoke, deep terrace, and banquet hall); and Cafe Del Mar (A very nice and cool place with a lot of great dishes menu, free Karaoke, and Russian carpet dance floor with plenty of girls during the weekend).

In addition to that, if you don't mind to travel outside the city and you want to go where the real locals go, then you should try the Club Fabrique (located south of the city) and the Club 154 (located in the north part of the city), both are retro funky clubs where they play music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. There you can eat, drink and smoke hookah, and have a lot of fun. Please be aware that the English language is not spoken as these places are off the tourist radar.
