Beer restaurant with an industrial-style interior: brick, exposed pipes of an unintelligible purpose, hoods, hoses, taps - everything sparkles, giving you a feeling that you are at an old brewery. The food is nourishing, there is a lot of meat on the menu, all of this served on tables covered with paper napkins with history of Kaliningrad written on them, including the original name of the town – Koenigsberg. In the menu the retro theme continues, as it offers dishes that existed many years ago: a chilled pork knuckle, Olivier salad with crayfish tails, sturgeon Moscow-style. In addition, the menu has a lot of fish, which is caught in different parts of the country. There is even a separate map with explanations regarding the origin of muksun and Arctic cisco. The alcoholic offering is traditional - wine, vodka, whiskey, but there are also various tinctures (hrenovuha and cedar) deserving special attention and, of course, beer which brewed right here; the choice is small, but conscious.

A noisy chain beer restaurant, in which equally much attention is paid to beer, snacks, and entertainment. There are six types of beer on the menu, including Bavarian Zötler beer. This beer is brewed according to the old Koenigsberg recipes. The menu is also full of specialties, for example, Koenigsberg klops (meatballs). These are round cutlets made from beef and anchovies, which are stewed in cream sauce with lemon, prepared according to local recipes of the 19th century. Here they constantly hold themed parties, promotions and holidays - it came to the point that Zötler does not look like an important city restaurant, but rather a club of merry like-minded people.
A chain bar with a traditional interior for such places - an extensive bar, flaunted huge beer tanks of its own brewery, television screens with football, a refrigerator with live beer. They do not even shun to do beer cocktails ("Lady's sermon", "Berlin blonde", "Geisha", "Churchill"). Golden pils, copper and Viennese lager, weizen – each kind of beer is offered with instruction on when to drink it and with what. There’s a hundred varieties of imported bear – you cannot figure out what to drink without the tips of the bartender. The appetizers are thought through to the smallest detail. In addition to the normal habitual hot dishes and cold snacks, there are ideal for beer fried sprats, and pork ears with parmesan.
Irish pub with hearty cuisine and an established audience - rather, this is a meeting place for larger crowds than just a pub. Parties, St. Patrick's Day, the contest entitled "The Strongest Couple of the Year", presentations of new varieties of beer - all this happens quite often, with a lot of drunken cheerful regulars. Periodically hosts arrange special promotions, for example, on Mondays they discount all beer 20%, or on Tuesdays they provide the same discount of 20% on group sets. The preferred drink here is beer (including heated up beer), whiskey and cocktails based on whiskey. The menu is provided with a touching proverb in defense of red-haired Irish people - "A face without freckles is like a sky without stars".
One of the most notable pubs of the city, located in an equally notable building. House 33 on Prospekt Mira was once occupied by the Consulate General of the USSR, then it was replaced by the famous fish store "Gifts of the Sea". The pub fits perfectly into these walls, because, like its predecessors, it plays a big role in the lives of citizens. The London menu has a dozen beers, among which there are five types of craft, and there is a spectacular separate cocktail menu. Patrons are offered traditional British food (shepherd's pie and lamb) and light snacks from the menu of different countries - from hummus and falafel to tapas. There’s also a separate children's menu. If you take food to go, you get a 20% discount. On weekends, musicians perform live, there are loud parties, and sometimes children-oriented events as well.

A magnificent establishment of Czech cuisine, where they eat a lot, drink a lot and still stand firmly on their feet. Brick walls, wooden and leather furniture, quotes from the writer Jaroslav Hašek on the walls. In the restaurant there are three halls, two for drinking and the third one is fully geared for sports broadcasts. The food is quite apt - mushroom soup in a bread loaf, Kaszanka blood sausage, a large Prague plate for 5 people, hermelin cheese, Karlovy Vary baked pork with dumplings and so on. There’s a wide variety of Czech dishes, the names of which many know only from the books of the namesake author. If a new dish or a new brand of beer appears in the tavern, invitations to tasting are posted on the site of the establishment. The most popular varieties are "Koutska" and "Czech Torture".
An elegant cafe on the embankment, so well located that you can come here just like that, even well-fed, just to sit by the water in a beautiful place in the building of the river station. In the summer there is a patio, gatherings on which often go well beyond schedule. In winter, it's just as good inside: paintings on the walls, old pianos, large windows, chandeliers. Food is great, as well. Five kinds of pastas, salads, three kinds of soup, a lot of hot appetizers and branded marzipans, which are prepared according to 19th century recipes. The establishment also boasts a good wine list, waiters can help you navigate around it. In the evenings, pleasant parties are organized with music and old movie viewings.
Friendly bar, in which it is difficult to stay on your feet. "Order two portions of tequila, receive the third one for free" - visitors at the entrance are seduced with promotions, and it’s a losing battle from then on: you can’t have just one. Here they dexterously urge you to drink and not stop – patrons are quite good at following these instructions. The establishment has a reputation as a place from which one does not quickly escape. In addition, food is hearty, tasty and inexpensive: boiled pork with horseradish – the serving is enough for a snack for two, baked potatoes, a set consisting of crayfish with beer, homemade sausages of own production.
A sports bar, where local residents gather. Simple homely atmosphere, regular broadcast of sporting events. In summer, you can sit with a beer in the apple orchard at the entrance to the restaurant and imagine that you are at someone's dacha (country house), and not in the center of the city. Local bartenders are known to be talkative and unhurried, so if you come with a big company, order immediately and for each person in the party. It’s a bad idea to come here with kids, in the evenings, regardless of whether the show is football or not, then cheerful cries and drunken frenzy are aplenty here.
