Art Cafe Zdes I Seichas (Here and Now) hosts its guests Saint Petersburg style: with both delicious food and cultural activities. Despite the ambiance d’art, it’s only mildly pretentious and can be a perfect spot for an evening out with friends or a date.

The cube on the first floor is used for poetic and visual performances, the graffiti is re-painted every day to change the scene. Guests can make impressive selfies and those who didn’t make it in person, can watch performances online — they are broadcasted.

The interior is eclectic: it harmoniously combines modern designer furniture and 1940s decor. Zdes I Seichas isn’t as much about the food as the atmosphere. If you do end up here, get in the mood to immerse yourself in the entire experience. Split one of the homemade pizzas and a salad, and pay some attention to the artists, whether you’ll find them silly or interesting. Don’t miss this artsy spot, spend your evening here at least once.
