3 new venues in St. Petersburg (November 2020)

Myasnikov mansion

On Vosstaniya Street, 45, the Myasnikov mansion has opened - concerts of classical music and lectures on art are already being held here, and next summer a whole restaurant cluster with author institutions will appear in the courtyard and the stables building. 37-year-old St. Petersburg businessman Dmitry Zaretsky owns a 3,000 square meter mansion.

The Myasnikov Mansion is a neo-baroque building from 1857-1859. The famous lawyer Nikolai Platonovich Karabchevsky lived here. He was familiar with the entire stellar audience of the capital; Chaliapin, Meyerhold, and many other famous creative figures visited here. Once a year, charity concerts were held here, it was very prestigious to perform at which - the richest people of the city came here.

"The building was restored in the 2000s; Committee for the state preservation of historical and cultural monuments even recognized it as the best restoration object in the city center in 2008. We got it by accident - we were not going to hunt for old real estate. I wanted to buy out our office building, they told me the price, it seemed too high to me, and I decided to see what you can buy in the city for about that kind of money. I came across this mansion, found out that it was up for auction, and we bought it under the hammer for 550 million rubles. This is a very profitable purchase - the previous owners have invested about two billion in the restoration alone. Back in 2003, the building was received from the city by the company "MIM", they wanted to open a hotel here, but went bankrupt. The bank that gave them the loan took this object, completed all the work, and the house was empty. In fact, I bought a dollar for 30 cents - I did it primarily because it is rational, it is a smart investment.

I have no commercial plans for this place - I really love classical music, and therefore I decided that it would sound here. And we would like to give a platform to young musicians, to reveal their talent. Because in the same orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater the same people have been working for decades, you cannot get there, and yesterday's graduates of the conservatory are not tired of music, they want to record, play, compose.

For the audience, this can become an entry point into the world of high music - our concerts are short, and educational lectures are also held. I would also like to hold competitions for pianists and violinists here.

We would like to open a gallery of modern art in the basement and hang reproductions in the halls", says Dmitry Zaretsky.


LOFT №7 is located in the buildings of the 19th century of the former factory "Arsenal", which has existed from 1711 to the present day in another part of the city. In 2017 there was attempt to open space with offices and halls for exhibitions and concerts but it was not accomplished. In 2018 Placebo/25 came here as a new developer.

Wawelberg Hall

One of the most unusual buildings on Nevsky Prospekt, the Wawelberg Building was compared on its completion to the Doge's Palace in Venice and the Banco di Santo Spirito in Rome, although the dark, rough granite used to face the building gives it an earlier medieval appearance. In early 2021 there will be an opened luxury  Wawelberg 5* Hotel with 78 rooms after long renovation of the famous Wawelberg Building. In the meantime, in November this year they opened Wawelberg hall - a historically reconstructed 740 square meters hall. 

The Wawelbergs were a Polish-Jewish family who settled in St. Petersburg in the 1840s. In 1869, Hyppolite Wawelberg founded the Wawelberg Bank, which operated in Russia and Poland and gained rapid success as the main lender to the government of Congress Poland. Hyppolite's son, Michael Wawelberg, took over his father's company in 1903, and in 1912 it was renamed the St. Petersburg Commercial Bank, an accurate reflection of the company's stature and wealth. Although the company was nationalized in Russia by the Bolsheviks, and the Wawelberg family consequently lost their control, its Polish subsidiary Bank Zachodni ( «Western Bank») is still one of the country's main banks today.
