This glaringly brightly lit, yet surprisingly cozy establishment is fittingly (for us) called "Friendship". This was where we spent most of our ryumochnaya tour and made the most friends for the night. Probably because it’s open 24 hours. It’s also a good place to watch sports, there are a couple of TVs and an entire mirrored wall of football scarves. The expansive interior (two big rooms) and hours of operation set this spot apart from its more traditional neighbours, but you can still get vodka by the gram/milliliter and assorted zakuski. We had our usual pickled herring with onion, this time plus sliced boiled potatoes. And plenty of brown bread, of course.
