Chroniki (Chronicles) bar on ulitsa Nekrasova attempts to merge the drinking cultures of a modern Scandinavian bar and a classic Leningrad ryumochnaya (the traditional Soviet-era watering hole). The stylish interior is very modern yet cosy, simple yet edgy, with white-tiled walls, brass windowsills, gilded antique Soviet chandeliers. The bar gives you a great view of the classic St. Petersburg architecture on ul. Nekrasova. The preferred order at Chroniki is, as per tradition at a Leningrad ryumochnaya, hard alcohol. The numerous types of vodka include Russian, Finnish, Swedish and Danish variations.
