The end of december, january and the beginning of february.

Brimborium Brimborium (wich is a german word for mumbo-jumbo) is a nice almost family bar. One of the interior attractions is the RGB wallpaper (different elements in each overlapping print are revealed depending on the use of red, green or blue light), that I've seen for the first time in my life - a really beatiful and interesting thing. You can check those here http://www.carnovsky.com/RGB.htm

This bar is decorated with the head of a moose, named Leonard. He even has his own instagram (sounds a little bit creepy but you can check it here: http://statigr.am/leonard_moose)

Хроники Khroniki (Chronicles) 
Leningrad spirit, northern tradition. "Milk with knifes", "Free ingria" cocktails, small sandwiches with humus, hering, potato and chicken.

A small cosy wine bar with some appeal in it's name.

Fiddlers Green Fiddlers Green
The walls are decorated with conventionalized sepia photos of barmens with tatoos drawn messed with old photos of nude beauties. Songs of sea, punch, handsome cabin boys, come all you drunken sailors!

It's always a pleasure to see your remarkable drawings here. You find the most unique bars, inhabited by interesting looking people and you portray it all beautifully. I hope you consider gathering them into a book sometime.

I love the effect of your watercolors on the colored paper. What kind of paper are you using for this (especially fiddlers green).

Gorgeous design to these drawings, as always. Love the description of the different pubs, too.

Your drawings always knock me out, Ekaterina! Love the description of place and people, and your mix of colours, patterns and detail is so personal and interesting.

I love them too!

As always yours are top drawings.

Wish you may visit us and give us a workshop once!

You should be an instructor in any Usk symposium. That would be really different and a good reason to attend.

I'm a big fan of your bar sketches! Gorgeous as always!

@Charlie, I mosty draw in different sketchbooks, for Feedlers Green I used the one with heavy paper (unfortunatelly no details are writen on it's cover). And I even bought it specially for Fiddlers Green, because it seemed to me that the olive-green colour of pages matched the walls of this bar:)

@Vicky, Veronica, Nina, Isaac, Nelson, Kumi Thank you, your comments are an inspiration!

@Isaac I wished to one day! But I'm afraid I'm not very good as the instructor)
