We stumbled across this bar by accident, lots of velvet curtains, brocade wallpaper. Good choice of infused shots, and the best cocktail ive ever had, 'the Filthy Russian', vodka, olive brine and gorgonzola stuffed olives. The barmaid was efficient if slightly frosty. Free poured the...More

Was looking for a place that is more interesting than the hotel bar to have a drink. And this was it! A web search for the best martinis revealed the Russian Vodka Room. Just 4 blocks away - so convenient that we had to go....More

This was not a scene from Taken. There were no Russian mobsters or any sinister vibe. Was I disappointed . . . just a little. We sat at the bar and had a couple of their signature cocktails. We had already had dinner, so just...More
