The bar is located at the five-star hotel “Domina St. Petersburg”, so foreign fans are frequent guests here.

Among them, there are a lot of Mexicans, Brazilians, Iranians, Egyptians, British, Japanese, Americans, and Argentines. In general, the hotel has welcomed more than two thousand foreign guests of the World Cup. They cheer passionately, shout loudly, and have fun. For example, after the match on June 26, held in the Northern Capital, the Argentines celebrated their victory in the bar all night. According to the Argentines themselves, they live in football and came to cheer for Messi - he is a kind of symbol for them, a hero who remains a simple "old boy," without any pathos.

Many guests did not miss a single match - all attention in this trip was paid to football, and no one cared about the excursions. The representatives of Latin America on the contrary showed high interest and visited all the main sights of St. Petersburg, tried to taste the dishes of local cuisine. However, in one issue all agreed - the foreigners were suddenly impressed by Russia - not only the organization of the Championship and the beauty of the city, but, first of all, the affability and cordiality of the Russians. In general, the mood of the fans who came to the city is more than friendly, - the staff of the bar and the hotel say.

Despite the guests' interest in local cuisine, football requires a special aperitif-menu that everyone understands. Therefore, the most popular orders were burgers and sandwiches, pork ribs and chicken wings from a special fan menu developed at the bar. The main drinks are beer and sweet soda.

Within the framework of the campaign "THE CITY IS READY!", the bar “Nove” has created a comfortable atmosphere for the fans and will support it until the end of the World Cup. Professional video and audio equipment, large screens, soft sofas, football aperitif-menu in Russian and English, thematic decoration of the interior and dishes, a congratulatory shot-cocktail from the bar for every goal of his team, kicker for passionate games of fans between broadcasts and team game of bartenders - all this awaits the guests of “Nove” on the Moika River embankment, 99.
