"For wine and fine cuisine lovers"
Wine Bar 74 was named after the legendary highway in France. Route D974 in fact passes from Dijon to Bon, dividing the vineyards of Burgundy, and the fine wines of this region form the basis of the bar’s extensive wine list. You’ll love the modern interior designed by the best of St. Petersburg’s designers and artists. Great food, the best varieties of French wines and jazz evenings make this a compelling choice. You can also try Mark (home-brewed hooch) or a light apple liqueur Pommeau de Normandie, as well as French beers, traditional vodkas, Armagnac, or Pastis.
