Gnezdo Bar – panoramic view on the Andrew descent
Silent and cozy panoramic playground A bar’s nest on the Andreevsky Spusk.
You have to follow instructions in order to find this secret place: you need to roll into the arch near the store “Food” and go to the very depth – this is the “Nest”. First of all, try to find a table near the large panoramic windows from which a dizzying view of the steep slope opens. In the evenings, the trees are illuminated, lamps and flashlights are burning, and from the corner you are looking at a huge swan – the owner of the nest in which you climbed. In the menu: cocktails, hookahs and light snacks.
