We simply loved this place. In fact, it is our favourite bar in all of Russia. We passed by whilst walking around the beautiful city of Irkutsk but made our back later as it looked so cosy. It's a smart cocktail bar which you might find in any cosmopolitan city like Moscow, London, N.Y. etc. except it has that Russian/Irkutsk twist: excellent service, a friendly welcoming vibe, a cool literary theme and and groovy ersatz fireplace, and best of all a large range of Russian style cocktails and vodkas. We opted for White Russian, [Bloody Mary is popular in Russia but we prefer that for breakfast in Scotland!] and a whisky based cocktail called 'Dead Poets', which is now my new favourite drink [Russia should start producing her own whisky like the Japanese and Taiwanese]. We had an early flight to catch otherwise we'd have stayed and made a night of it! Hope to be back one day. Thanks so much.

Trendy bar in the center of lrkutsk! Library is located 10 walking minutes from Lenin square down on Karl Marks street. In my eyes so good cocktail bar in town with acceptable prices. The menu is also in English and bartenders know how to mix a amazing drink! Just tell them what u what and they’ll knock something up for

cocktails are so bad. The barmen are too slowly and rude. Meeting visitors a girl looks like a call girl at the entry. And also two huge security guards at the entry. I thought it was a bar, but it looked like a cheap strip-club.

This is a great bar which was close to where I was staying . The beer was really tasty as was the food. Value for money was tremendous. There was a warm genuine welcome when I arrived and after the beer I had a few delicious cocktails. The only improvement I can think of is a food menu in English I would highly recommend a night in here

The drinks menu was elaborate and the bartender was very passionate and focused on making the best drink to suit any individual! The atmosphere was warm and the drinks are very well priced. Worth a visit if you are ever in Irkutsk.

Отличное, теплое место с замечательными людьми, которые с радостью помогут с выбором любому гостю, предложат, подскажут, посоветуют, разговорят, развеселят, заставят тебя забыть, что ты пришел лишь час назад. Совсем немного, и ты чувствуешь себя "своим", из-за чего тебе захочется возвращаться сюда не раз, звать друзей и делать эту некую барную "семью" только больше. A nice warm place, where great people work. They will gladly help you to make a choice, give a piece of advice, talk to you, cheer you up. They will make you forget that you're here only for an hour. Soon you will feel like you belong here and it will make you to go back not once. It will be the reason why you will annoy to all of your friends telling about this place and finally bring them here. At least this is how it works for me. I wish more people would know about this place, this bar surely deserves it.

We stayed in Baikal story hostel and were invited for a drink in Library bar, which was just across the street, in one of the two main streets in Irkutsk. The atmosphere is nice and the bar is decorated as a library. We were there on a weekday and the bar was still quite full with people having a drink, mostly students. The bartender spoke English very well and was eager to speak to us. The bar offers a wide range of drinks, among which homemade limoncello, which was nice and not too expensive. Besides that, the bar is somewhat expensive.

It's actually very difficult to start because I'm feeling so good after a few beers and fries. You'll see it is a good place once you see it. Because there are the friendliest people, about a thousand drinks to choose from, decent food and even a fake fireplace running 24/7.. books painted on a wall.. what else do you want??

Best cocktail bar I've ever visited in my life. And this is exactly the cocktail bar. Cocktails here are at the forefront and rule the roost. There are 60 cocktails on the board, and in the bartenders’ heads there are another 150. And what is very important is that everything is fair, all the cocktails are not just drinks diluted by people, but works of art, each with its own note and visualization. The bartenders themselves are a different matter. People who are pleasant to talk to are always happy to see you and are willing to meet you.
