This week's Time Out New York highlights Vlada Lounge (331 West 51st Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues), a new bar by Vlada von Shats, owner of the Russian Samovar.
Like Eastern Bloc (505 East Sixth Street at Avenue A), which opened last December, Vlada Lounge also features a Soviet theme. Unlike Eastern Bloc, it is authentic. The drink list features no less than 15 sorts of infused vodka, sure to be a crowd pleaser.
