2 Capitals – one thing in common

Along with summer Dachas, two all-year-round places with the name Dacha are very popular in Moscow and St-Petersburg. One, Dacha on the boulevard, is a cozy old soviet-dacha style restaurant on the old boulevard of Moscow, the other one – Bar Dacha is the favorite gig-place for the young artistic crowd of Saint-Petersburg. Both places are very attractive for expats, as they are unique in their style, and remind some private housing-clubs in Amsterdam, Hamburg or Berlin.

Dacha on the boulevard is probably one of the most hard to find restaurants in Moscow. It is located in the back-yard of the old building on Pokrovsky Boulevard. There is no sign or a guide board. You have to find the door with the intercommunication system, press the button, and wait for the door to be automatically opened. If you hear the voice, asking :”DA?”, which means “who is it?”, you can answer, that you would like to eat in the restaurant. When you are inside you will be absolutely covered with and penetrated into the cozy, silent atmosphere of the old soviet nomenclature dacha. For those people who never visited Soviet Dachas, this will be the great opportunity to understand what it is. The restaurant is also like a museum of old dacha culture of the mid 20th century. The unique atmosphere is created of the antique interior objects and the materials of the private dacha life. Gramophone, old abat-jours, which create the special mild light, old photo pictures of the beautiful people, who could be the friends of our grand-fathers and grand-mothers, soviet posters: Lenin feeding the pigeons on the soviet poster, and many other things which are so close to the heart of each Russian person. The food is home-made style, portions are large, and there is a great variety of special dacha courses, like navy-style macaroni (macaroni po-flotski), home-style cutlets. You don’t have a feeling of time in such place and all that you have to do is take a pleasure of the unique moment which lasts forever.

The place with the same name which has to be visited in Saint-Petersburg, is Bar Dacha. The shabby chic décor, such as you may find in many Russian's dachas, inspired the bar's name. There is even a new word in the slang of St-Petersburg inhabitants – BARDACHA. Since the summer of 2004, when the Bar Dacha was open by the famous musician Anton Belyankin from Dva Samoleta music band and his girlfriend from Hamburg, this word is on the lips of many. It is one of the power points for intellectual youth and expats. This place is done in the style of 2-room private flat, undecorated, IKEA furniture. When you get inside, you feel yourself being at some private party in one of the friends apartments. The place is always crowded, those who can not fit in, are waiting outside – drinking and chatting. Smoky clouds, cheap alcohol, everybody’s dancing. All people seem to know each other, music is various – mainly afro-euro hits of late 70s – ska, roots, reggae, disco, rock, etc. You can easily find friends here or at least find an interesting conversable company to drink with. But, if by some reason the worst comes to the worst, you can go upstairs on the “2nd floor”, but this is the beginning of another story… Never-ending story.
