Russian Samovar would be honored to provide our services for your next event. Each event is bespoke to your tastes and needs, to provide the best experience possible for you and your guests.
The history of Russian Samovar starts well before the restaurant itself. Originally Jilly’s Canteen, and owned by friend of Frank Sinatra, Jilly Rizzo, Samovar was the go to hot spot for Sinatra and The Rat Pack. In homage to Sinatra, Johnny Carson, and the good old boys, we decided to maintain the original red banquettes from back in those days. We also preserved the original bar as featured in The Manchurian Candidate and even unearthed original artwork from the talented people who frequented Jilly’s before we were fortunate enough to acquire this landmark location.
Ladies and gentlemen, grab your pawns and get ready for a night of mind-bending chess action like no other! At Russian Samovar, we're excited to announce our new monthly event: Checkmate & Chill!
Step into our second-level tournament room and prepare to battle it out with up to 20 other challengers. The stakes are high - the winner walks away with a stunning Russian Samovar inspired chess set made in Ukraine and a $200 gift certificate for Russian Samovar.
But before the games begin, make your way to our social lounge area where the drinks are flowing and the music is bumping! Mingle with other chess enthusiasts, and get hyped for the upcoming tournament with a live DJ performance. And once you're ready to go, you can settle down to watch the action unfold on our projector screen.
The best part? Sign up for the tournament is only $20, and you'll get a complimentary glass of wine or a shot of our delicious infused vodka to help you get into the competitive spirit. So whether you're a seasoned chess pro or a newbie to the game, Checkmate & Chill over at Russian Samovar is the perfect opportunity to showcase your skills and have a blast in a lively and welcoming atmosphere.
Don't miss out on the ultimate chess showdown - sign up now to reserve your spot and join us for a night of fun, games, and good vibes. We can't wait to see you there!
