Clubs and live music in St Petersburg
The best stretch to find lively nightlife is on Dumskaya Street, home to a handful of St Petersburg’s hottest clubs and live music spots. Most people you’ll meet will have a grasp of English and the venues are so close together that punters are allowed to carry their glasses from bar to bar.
Keep your eyes peeled for Fidel, a venue set up by Ska rockers Dva Samolyota, which promises live music and a fun, energetic atmosphere.
Mishka Bar is not far from Dumskaya Street. It’s cramped and dark but has excellent music and a buzzing atmosphere – and offers cheap cocktails to boot.
Part café, part bar and part launderette, Stirka 40° attracts a similar scene. Launched as an art installation by its Berlin-based owner, this pocket-sized party venue is a wonderfully bizarre place to dance away the night. Estrada is pretty much next door and comes complete with podiums and lasers to appease the glam clubbing type.
If you like to keep up with brand-new music, Jesus Club always has the latest in trap, bass, and chill wave from all over the world.
When the revelling is well into the wee hours, head to Griboedov Hill – the longest-running club in St Petersburg – where you are more than likely to find a crazy party or a good Russian band to keep you going.
