Square Meal Review of Ruski's Tavern ?

Expect plenty of loaded Euroflash takers for bottles of Kauffman vodka (£550) and Cristal by the Methuselah (£26k) at this new Muscovite basement bar and riotously kitsch nightlife playground circa Doctor Zhivago. Created by Antoin Commane and Diego Bivero-Volpe (late of Bodo’s Schloss opposite), it serves up Ruski-themed cocktails with names like Kremlin, KGB, Moscow Mule and Sputnik, plus shots from London’s largest collection of vodkas and wines at suitably inflated prices. Shape throwing, valet parking, a private butler service, steak tartare and caviar from £66 a smidgeon (best enjoyed with chips, apparently) are part of the fun overseen by a big stuffed Russian bear – with a sore head come 3am, perhaps? Mere mortals who don’t run banks or own football teams can join the party too – provided they dress appropriately (ie. Made in Chelsea) and get past the if-your-face-fits doorman.
