Modern Russian Bar Sets Up Shop In A Soviet-Era Refrigeration Room
Housed in the refrigeration room of a former Soviet-era bakery, the brick and concrete interiors of Sever Bar in St. Petersburg is harsh, stark and industrial.
After deciding to keep the authentic atmosphere of the space, the owners added softer, friendlier details—such as a cool neon sign—to bring this vintage space into the present.
The latest addition to an artistic hub that includes galleries, exhibition spaces, a bookstore and a café, several notable artists could be found dishing out drinks from behind the bar.
While it may not be the most welcoming of watering holes, it will still be interesting to have a drink or two in a space that harks back to the days of Leningrad.
