Cocktail Bar

“A Russian-inspired vodka bar that houses over 80 of the world’s best vodkas. On weekends, Pravda transforms into a bustling nightclub, often home to burlesque dancers, live music or aerialist shows for entertainment. The Soviet-inspired cocktails entice but, for a memorable experience, don a fur stole and follow a staff member into the freezer for a private vodka tasting.”
