    Visiting Nizhny

    Hello there,
    I'm visiting Nizhny soon (I arrive on the 21st of August) and was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions of restaurants and bars to visit?
    Thanks in advance for your recommendations and advice!

    Tommy C hi,

    Welcome to Russia, Nizhny is a great city!

    There are many great bars, restaurants and like places.

    A nice place thats not expensive is, Kabanchik.

    Details,
    Prostpect Lenina, dom 32. "пр-т. Ленина, д. 32"
    Web: *есторан Нижний Новгород

    Another is,
    Priyout ustalogo traktorista "Приют усталого тракториста"
    Address: Bolshaya. Pokrovskaya, 14.
    Web: ::

    There is the Tinkoff Beer Restaurant
    Address: Ulitsa Belinskogo, dom 63, 5th floor "ул. Белинского, д. 63 (ТЦ Этажи, эт. 5)"
    They have Euorpean and Japanese food if you get hungry

    If you like good music while you drink, there is a really cool rock bar -
    Rock-Bar
    Address: Ulitsa Piskunova, dom 11 "ул. Пискунова, д. 11"
    Mind that this is not a great place for a quiet chat it's very loud and full
    of people. They serv sushi pretty cheap if you're into that. Though the
    service may be quite slow because of so many people. But still a great place!

    There used to be many cool places but it seems the Crisis has hit the Nizhny
    bars hard. Beerka, Perushka both seem to be closed.

    I'm sure you will find some great places anyways, Nizhny is cool city with a
    lot to offer everyone. Enjoy your time there.

    Cheers, RydeR!
    These places sound great. I'll check them out. I'm leaving for Moscow on Friday and I'm in Nizhny from the 21st to the 25th of August. If anyone fancies meeting up for a beer, let me know!

    Helo Tommy c Is this simply a tourist visit? or do you you have a professional reason go here. Are you going to teach? or something else? Is this a tourist idea? Or are you looking for more?

    2 Tommy C:

    My five copecks aout NNov nice places - generally the city is much better in food quality/qty than Moscow and even SPb.

    First in list is cafe called "Angliyskoe posol'stvo" (English embassy) - it is at center, near Ploschad' Gor'kogo, just behind Dom Svyazi (Telecom House), at Zvezdinka street. Very good kitchen, tested, my recommendations.

    Second place is at central pedestrian Bolshaya Pokrovskaya (just Pokrovka) street, opposite the Oktyabr' (October) cinema - there is a bookstore and 3th floor over it is occupied with Italian style cafe - very good kitchen and very democratic pricing (although not visited personally, but recommended by reliable local people).

    Third place (also recommended by local people who like to eat really big and tasty portions) - opposite the Comedy Theatre at the corner of Alekseevskaya and Gruzinka streets (at center too, Alekseevskaya is parallel to Pokrovka, Gruzinka crosses them perpendicular) there is a restaurant in theater style - name is either Stary Teatr (Old Theatrr) or Gorodskoy Teatr (City Theatre). Even salad portion is causing respect...

    Ha Ha! Even the salad portion! I like it. I've marked these places on my map and I'm looking forward to trying some of them out - many thanks for your recommendations!

    With a pleasure - really nice city... and not a bad bar at Strigino airport sterile zone, just before boarding... No bars before check-in though... but there is one-floor "shalman" at airport square, right from exit doors... convenient if your flight is delayed

    BTW... Do you go to this trip with a girl or alone?

    He-he... Take a basin or basket for saliva when crawling along streets between local girls - especially for Nizhny and Kiev (if you plan Kiev at Ukraine).
