Named after the left-wing philosopher, the bar brings you to some poor Russian intelligentsia alcoholic’s apartment. Scratched, blemished, broken, smudged to the core. The place where local intelligence drinks brutally, speaks loudly, sometimes dances to the tunes of non- existing melody. Start by ordering their special 10 y.o. Matusalem rum, from an introvert bartender with bitter eyes and a tattoo saying ‘klusu’ (quiet) on his right arm. No food, very strange music, poetry reading/performances occasionally, Tarkovsky anti-utopia atmosphere.
