At the Kurekhin Center for Contemporary Art, the L. Grib coffee house has been launched. The name stands for the famous maxim "Lenin is a mushroom" from an interview taken by Sergei Sholokhov from Sergei Kurekhin. The coffee shop was opened by two friends Egor Osipov and Dmitry Gaben, who launched the Cherny espresso bar in the Tsarhitektor in the spring, but later, like other residents of the cluster, were forced to close it. They told Life around about their new project.
Address: Ligovsky Prospect, 73
Working hours: 13: 00-22: 00, except Sunday
Espresso - 100 rubles
Cappuccino -120 rubles
Americano -80 rubles
Flatwright -150 rubles
Idea: The basis of the menu is an espresso-based coffee classic; everything else, according to the organizers, changes depending on the season and mood: sometimes cheesecakes are served, sometimes home-made cakes, on the days of performances and lectures in L. Grib you can eat eclair or Bush’s cake. Soon there will also be a drink "Illich" based on Kombucha. It will be poured for free on an Instagram post.
Design: L. Grib was built as part of the center of Kurekhin and is decorated in a single style with space: a laconic interior, lots of light and paintings by Andrey Bartenev, Marina Koldobskaya and Marina Fedorova on the walls. The Electronics-7 watch was brought from the Priboy movie theater, where the museum used to be located, while lampshades and some furniture were moved from the closed Black Bar.
