They have collaborated on other well-established London bars including The Brompton Club and Bodo’s Schloss and have now come together once more for their first independent project. Situated in the prime location of Kensington High Street, the bar itself is a tribute to the decadent and luxurious Russia of a bygone era where beautiful murials, candlelit staircases and even a giant bear create the perfect atmosphere within which to sample their fantastic range of vodkas (to be drunk straight in traditional fashion of course). If you haven’t quite developed your Russian vodka downing stamina then try one of Ruski’s mouth-watering cocktails served in traditional mule mugs or their champagne imaginatively poured into Matryoshka dolls. The second thing this bar is devoted to is caviar- the perfect accompaniment to the vodka hit and served up in a variety of unexpectedly delicious ways such as with chips, steak tartare or in a club sandwich- well that’s how the Tsar’s ate theirs don’t you know! Already a popular hang out with the celebs, this place remains unpretentious and the resulting crowd eclectic. Open Tuesdays then Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 8 till late. See you there comrades!
