The service was excellent, and the food from the bar menu was very good. I particularly enjoyed the open faced salmon sandwich. I also had tea in there most nights during my stay, and the staff got to know me well enough to have it ready when I arrived.

I'm not sure why the bar at the Astoria is called the Litchfield. Perhaps the famous photographer stayed here more than once (given the history of the place I wouldn't be surprised). Frankly I don't care because when it's -10 outside and you're freezing, this is one of the best places I can think of being. The 'bar food' (if... More

Named after Lord Lichfield, the photographer, and with many of his photos displayed, this is an classy venue in the Astoria Hotel next to St Isaac's. The service (Alexei) was outstanding - and included a great description of how vodka is made and should be drunk (hint - don't dare ask for tonic or - even worse, coke. That's for... More

A beautiful bar in the lobby of the lovely Astoria Hotel and right next to several tourist sites. Perfect place for an afternoon break while walking around the city. Particularly when a rain cloud opens up. The staff was very attentive and very nice.

It does not get any more elegant anywhere in the world - period. Amazing atmosphere (furniture, curtains, flowers, samovars...) and service. Had an evening cocktail there (Lichfield Martini) and the piano player in his white suit almost alone for us. We have to coe back!

We stopped by here a few times just around the corner from the W Hotel where we were staying en route to a restaurant and had a vodka sour which was wonderful and only circa £5. Lovely bar with great B&W photos by Lord Lichfield.

Popped in for a couple of drinks and the young gentleman taking care of us really gave us a unforgettable moment in the midlle of a freezing cold day. Very nice decor and especially the Mohito was outstanding! (Drinks include a nice set of snacks). They have a nice looking menu too.... We will return for sure!
