An attempt to make authentic English pub on Neva's banks

Pickwick Pub is an attempt to make authentic English pub on Neva’s banks. It’s a second pub supported by Dickens pub team and situated on Ryleeva Street, 6 (not far from Chernyshevskya Metro station). Well, if you want to feel true atmosphere of good old England it’s a best place for it (of course with Dickens pub too).

It has several rooms: non-smoking area and place for smokers, room with big LCD panel (for sport fans), and a lengthy cozy bar stand. Its gents toilet has a nice and in useful feature in certain circumstances – soft shoring for head …Not bad if you’re drunk enough. Pleasant light is flowing from old-fashioned brass lamps. Red darkish walls are like old train compartment with some touch of ribbing. I also checked darts and some illustrations from comic adventures of esquire Samuel Pickwick on it.

There’re several sorts of ales and stouts: Bass, London Pride, Caffrey’s, Manchester Brown Ale, Bowman. For girls would better refreshing Hoogarden and Belgian Kierk with cherry taste. Cuisine is pretty various. You can order full English breakfast till 5 p.m. or fish and chips, chicken sandwiches, chicken wings, or even shashlik in later time. If this place doesn’t satisfied another option is available – you can explore nearby pubs like Foggy Dew, Bulldog or Templet Bar.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
