About the restaurant

For 14 years now, there has been a place in the heart of St. Petersburg that sets the rhythm for the night life of secular society in our city. This place feels like home for both ordinary guests and stars. After all, for such a long time, Jelsomino Cafe hosted a huge number of big parties: afterparty of the Golden Gramophone and Big Love Show, hundreds of concerts of Russian and foreign pop stars.

Apart from the parties and performances, a big focus is on the ambience of the place. Everything is set up to keep you coming over and over. Coming to Jelsomino Cafe, but also to your friends, favorite singers of a popular art group and all those people who have been setting the mood for fourteen years already. This is the place where the soul sings, and it is the secret of  Jelsomino Cafe special ambience.

During 14 years of history, many of our karaoke guests became admirers of author’s cuisine of our chef Ruslan Iskandarov. The menu is very diverse: European, Russian and Asian cuisines. Top dishes, such as grilled scallops with mango sauce and cress, lamb rack grilled with port sauce and our signature Napoleon cake never leave the menu and are favorites for many guests. As for cocktails, our bartenders are able to fulfill the wishes of the most sophisticated guests. In here you can have a snack, come over for dinner or even have breakfast after a big night out before coming home. The restaurant staff will be happy to prepare a dish upon guest’s request, even if it is not on the menu! This is what makes Jelsomino Cafe special for the beloved guests!
