El Copitas


Hip Mexican vibes... once you manage to find it.

Expect the unexpected at this Russian bar. For starters, vodka ain't the soup de jour. It's mezcal. And a f*ck load of it. These guys are pioneers when it comes to the Eastern European agave scene. Mezcal wasn't even "officially" on the Russian market when they opened back in 2015. Bold move. Now El Copitas is the place to come if you want a dose of that Mexican life with the largest collection of tequila and mezcal in southeastern Europe.

It's pretty tricky to get in this place. It's hidden within a courtyard. No sign nor even a hint of its location, and you'll need a reservation before they even consider helping you find it. Once into this cosy and hip 25 seater den, you can smoke, but only 2 people at a time, and they kindly request you leave your drugs and weapons at home. If you can leave the uzi and ecstasy behind then this one could be for you.
