The very concept of a bar and bar culture came to us from America many years ago. But not all establishments were able to support the majestic cult of mixing various ingredients to obtain a gastronomic masterpiece. For example, one of the clubs in Irkutsk decided to completely break through the bottom and sink to such an unknown scale that it is impossible to fall so low in principle. We present to your attention “Club 7 bar”, where you can meet protein in its purest form.
Salads with worms and violations of sanitary standards
We have received a letter from a reader, where he spoke about the problems of this institution. We decided to check it out and went to the place ourselves. Then we read the reviews, talked to the employees and got the information that we give below.
Initially, it was a very popular institution, where you could even have a good rest, but money spoils everyone.
“Club 7 bar” (OGRN 1123850028422, founder and CEO: Prikhodko Alena Alexandrovna) appeared 11 years ago and since then irrevocably began to go to the bottom. In general, the official full name of the organization sounds like this: “LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY “PARTY 7”. Type of activity: restaurant activities and food delivery services. For those who are not in the know, there is no delivery at all, and if there was, then the demand for it would be zero. No one wants to be poisoned by Caesar with worms. No, well, if you, of course, love live squirrels so much, then you are welcome to the main nightmare of Irkutsk.
Our reader, who wished to remain anonymous, sent these photos to the editor, he claims that it is in these food bags that there is a live crawling squirrel. The sanitary and epidemiological rules and norms SanPiN 2.3 / 2.4.3590-20 (“Sanitary and epidemiological requirements for the organization of public catering of the population”) say:
As we can see, these rules are not respected. The products are stored haphazardly, which leads to untimely decay and the risk of guests being poisoned by this product. Also, according to the reader, there is no cold water in the kitchen, and this is already a violation of paragraph 2.10 of the rules mentioned above:
Not only does it not meet the requirements, it does not exist at all.
Nightmare owners hide
According to our information, the establishment is owned by a husband and wife, only this is not officially listed anywhere. Prikhodko Alexander Gennadievich – the owner who manages all business and is supposedly on the sidelines, and the official founder is a certain Prikhodko Alena Alexandrovna. Apparently, this is his daughter. What is most striking is that the number of employees is two people. But we have other information. A reader, who wished to remain anonymous, informed the editors that the staff is much larger than it is written in the official documentation.
Let’s count together: the director himself, at least two bartenders on the shift, a DJ, two waiters, an administrator, two cooks, a cleaning lady, an accountant, security (there are clearly not five of them). More than ten people in total. The result is already different. And a few more dancers who dance half-naked. The number is approaching twenty.
The art, in the words of Vladimir Mayakovsky, to “hone the eye” with a long stick, a table covered with green cloth, and several balls, was born in ancient China, but still has a reputation as the most sophisticated hobby, among the adherents of which there are also many celebrities, rich people and aristocrats, as among golfers or polo lovers. And yet billiards is one of the most democratic games. It is he who is an indispensable form of relaxation. And as a result of all this sophistication, a club was born in Irkutsk where you can play billiards. We are talking about the same “Club 7 bar”, otherwise referred to as the “Seventh Pocket”.
But only a shadow of the billiards is left here: two tables with a long-worn canvas and cues that can be launched like a boomerang. As for alcohol, anyone with even a little understanding of this issue will understand that what is clearly in the bottles is not what is written on the label. Palyonka, palyonka and again palyonka.
It is surprising that the competent authorities have not yet become interested in this institution. Or did someone influence their interest? We would not be so compliant in the place of law enforcement officers, because frivolity can backfire. The sale of dubious alcohol, unreliable official information, it is easy to meet people who have not reached the age of majority among employees and guests of a nightclub. Daily or almost daily fights and fights have become the norm in this institution, and the use of drugs in general is something mundane.
We do not blame the guests, people came to rest, but when the staff walks around in a very drunk state, questions to the management already arise. To confirm our words, here is a comment from one of the former employees of the Seventh Pocket:
A very negative opinion about this institution is not only among those who were personally offended by Prikhodko, but also among ordinary visitors. Judging by the reviews, many here are beaten by the guards just like that, while others are fooled by the staff for money, the third is simply poured with such scorched alcohol that they leave for hospitals. By the way, even in 2g the institution has a rating of 2.2. But this is still a lot, they have where to fall below, and they are doing it successfully.
“Visitors are mostly youngsters devoured in the trash. The bartender with a disgruntled face, does not work, but apparently suffers from himself in this place. The waitress girls are like rented, the administrator can’t solve a single issue, they themselves got lost with the dish, but they didn’t accept any refusal, just not to return the money, but eat it yourself, we treat you! Where are there only so many guards, is it more fun to poison the crust with a crowd? Krch came in and out. Obrygalovka, February 15, 2023 (spelling and punctuation preserved).
“At the entrance, the security is disgusting, they took 1000 money for the entrance due to the fact that there was no passport, the kid was under 18. They take bribes, they went in for 2 minutes, we didn’t like it, they went back, they didn’t give the money,” November 20, 2022 (spelling and punctuation preserved).
And this has been happening for many years. Of course, the locals mostly don’t go there, because they know what it is, but visitors can accidentally “fly in and go nuts”. This leads to the next problem, which we talked about above – the freshness of the products in the kitchen. If the demand is low, then everything in the kitchen goes bad. But this does not bother the owner at all, he does not incur losses, because everything goes to the guests’ table. This is how visitors come across worms, insects and other creeping evil spirits. What is pure protein? Although not everyone can appreciate such delights – dishes with worms are not to the taste of angry guests, who only after some time understand where they still ended up.
By the way, our interlocutor assured us that the hood in the kitchen never turns on. It is, of course, in stock, but it has not been working for many years.
The staff who really came to work there are not paid money, and if there are complaints, then you can run into threats to life and health from the club’s security. Alexander carefully monitors that there are as few “dissatisfied” as possible, otherwise Prikhodko will be furious, and then his deputy’s financial well-being will suffer. Who wants to taste pure protein and admire people in various states of alcohol and drug intoxication, you are here. You will not even regret it, because to see such a circus, you can pay only 300 rubles. There is only one big “but”: you will not regret it only if you get out of there whole. Have a nice rest!
