Description: The Shamrock has been at the heart of St. Petersburg's bar scene long before there even was one. This famous local pub, just a pint's toss across the street from the world famous Mariinsky Theater, has also been an essential part of the cultural life of the city since 1994. Well known for its big breakfasts, Irish music, and live English football, the before and after theater crowds add a mix to the scene unique for a typical pub. A rowdy football crowd may change to an Irish folk session which in turn becomes a crowd of theater goers drinking alongside of the singers and dancers they just saw across the street. The Shamrock has a cozy lived in feeling unlike many of the kit and polished pubs around town. With a great steak and the best Guinness in town, a game of darts at The Shamrock is well worth heading off of Nevsky to discover the charm of Theater Square in St.Petersburg.

We had dinner and drinks here tonight. Food was ok. Our waitress was so bad I actually felt sorry for her because she’s obviously in the wrong job. Her t-shirt even bore the slogan “miserable”. We got the feeling dealing with the public was not of interest to her. She was not helpful at all when my sister with a dairy allergy was trying to order saying “no no no”. I think she was disappointed when my sister actually found something on the menu she could eat. Our drinks were slapped down on the table, she never came back to check on us during our meal. She also tried to serve us a very cloudy pint of Heineken and almost refused to take it back. We were on holidays and planned on staying there for the night but we left after we watched the football and went to Daiquiri bar.

I kept seeing this place as I walked around and finally stopped in for dinner. It is a nice pub with a good selection of food and drinks.

The staff were very friendly and I didn’t feel rushed to leave. They were also attentive which was great.

Popped in for a drink and stayed longer than planned. The bar staff were really great offering us to try the vodkas before we buy, the horse radish one was something else and really blew your socks off. We didn't eat but the food looked good.
It's a must to go and see how st Petersburg do Irish bars.

The Shamrock bar is located on Dekabristov street, just across from the Mariinky Theatre. We found this a convenient venue for a round of drinks prior to attending a performance at Mariinsky recently.

Basically, Shamrock is an Irish style pub with a flair for football. The seating arrangements and general decor is rather expected as is the typical food menu and drink list.

During our quick visit, we had a Gin-and-Tonic and White Russian. Both were fine, nothing outstanding nor bad. Prices reasonable while service was a bit slow with bringing our drink orders and delivering our cheque.

In the end, we'd have no problem stopping here for another round in the future.
