Fodor's Expert Review Bar London
This is the poshest bar in Sochi, attracting a glam crowd of local businessmen and foreigners. The venue is outfitted with plush leather seats, marble tabletops, mirror ceilings, bookcases filled with Faulkner novels, and artful black and white photographs commemorating visits from the likes of Amy Winehouse and Adam Levine. Located on the second floor of what used to be the Hotel London, which was famous with the Russian boho crowd of the early 20th century, London is Sochi's hotspot for live music, and locally loved karaoke. The bar has the biggest booze selection in town, featuring a long list of wines, Cognacs, brandys, whiskeys, vodkas, and beers, plus a highly praised kitchen. Bar London gets crowded on weekends, so call ahead to reserve a table. Then again, it's open around the clock, so you can drop in whenever you feel like a drink.
