Don’t miss the chance to get a bird’s-eye view of the city. On a good weather day, you can see as far as 25 km from the sky deck. The place might be a bit windy, yet the view is definitely romantic and breath-taking. When you are on the deck, which is 19 floors up by elevator and two more on shank’s pony, don’t forget to check out a little sculpture of a cat. Locals say it brings good luck if you hold it by the head, make a wish and throw a coin through cat’s mouth. Might work, who knows.

After its launch in 2016, it didn’t take the bar too long to make locals fall in love with it. Beer devotees really feel at home here, with more than 50 kinds of craft/draft beers ($4-8) at their disposal. There’s also a vast choice of simple and spicy, yet mouthwatering snacks that go perfectly with beer.

However, the most striking thing in this bar is its unique interior inspired by Antony Hopkin’s films and paying tribute to a few favorite ones.

The dining area makes apparent references to the “Silence of the lambs”: classical sober furniture, mild emerald tones, soft lighting — everything makes you look around uneasily, expecting Hannibal Lector himself to make an appearance. The huge custom-made motorcycle that replaced the chandelier is an art installation in and of itself and tribute to Hopkins’ role in “The World’s Fastest Indian”.

The aromas from the kitchen will calm you down…until you take a look inside. It’s designed to scare the hell out of you — you won’t confuse the blue and white walls from Lector’s underground operating room with anything else!
