“Bring us a plenty of vodka, not vodka with all sorts of fancies, but pure foaming vodka that hisses and bubbles like mad”.
This sentence of the Russian writer and playwright Nikolaj Gogol describes perfectly the spirit of the Davai, an exclusive lounge bar offering over one hundred cocktails based on Russian Standard Vodka, considered the number one in Russia and produced following the formula of Mendeleev; in fact the bottles display the Certificate of Origin, a guarantee of Russian standard quality.
In winter, when in Milan is very cold, there is nothing better than this cocktail bar, where to spend the evening with your friends and enjoy the traditional Russian liquor.
