In what seems to have become a local tradition of 'secret' cocktail bars (Mercy Brown, Sababa), Z Ust do Ust (Word of Mouth) lives up to its name by taking the idea of the hidden entrance to new heights. Finding it is a fun adventure, even when you have the address - we don't want to spoil it, so we'll let the photos here provide the clues. Once you're through the looking glass (literally), you find yourself immediately greeted by the laidback bar staff, who have made their attentive, chummy service is one of this place's strongest selling points. You'll need their help because the manic teen magazine-style menu is almost indecipherable for foreigners (and locals too, for that matter). The kitsch quotient here is high throughout with loud colours and playful decor, as drinks are served in novelty vessels (we saw some shaped like bathtubs, pugs and fists), with popcorn alongside. Hardly high-brow and a bit of a pretender in the cocktail scene, this is still a fun destination for younger folks in small groups looking for an adventure with some money to burn.
