Thankfully, the planet didn’t descend into a nuclear winter during the Cold War, so Soviet propaganda posters and unexploded missile shells now work as funny bar decorations. People’s Republik is a great little beer bar on the outer edge of the square that has pictures of Lenin and Che Guevara on the walls in addition to a darts board and (weirdly since no one ever dances here) disco balls. With things like Cuban sandwiches and New York strip steak, the menu is surprisingly broad for bar food, but ultimately it’s still just bar food, so don’t come here for dinner - come here to drink and plot a revolution (or maybe just argue about Medicare For All).
