El Copitas – Follow the rabbits
El Copitas in St. Petersburg is a hidden treasure not easy to find. It has a Mexican theme as the name already suggests and their focus is on agave distillates. Exposed brick walls, a huge concrete table in the middle, candlelight and a love for detail gives this place a very special vibe. It is a hideaway, a cozy rabbit hole, an escape from the daily routine, the perfect place to spend your night.
There is no Wi-Fi and not enough light to take pictures all the time, there is just the Mexican spirit and one of the most gorgeous bar teams. Due to the small size of the venue and the big communal table as centre piece you can easily get to know other guests.
I was so glad that I had finally made it. They caught my attention at Cocktail Spirits in Paris last year, when the three brains behind El Copitas, Artem Peruk, Igor Zernov and Nikolay Kiselev, presented their bar concept.
El Copitas is not just a bar, it is family.
Their mission is simple: they want to make their guests happy.
