The self titled Russian Center of San Francisco is not as good of a place as the other reviewer claims it to be. (It could have been very nice at that particular wedding event) I've visited the "Russian Center" on a few occasions when a relative of mine invited me there for one of their officially organized evenets called "Russian Festival". At first it may appear as a respectable event. There are some Russian painters selling their art and Russian musicians. There is also Russian food.

Unfortunately other things that happen at the "Russian Center" are shameful and embarrassing. What you are likely to see is groups of Russian speaking men drinking heavily and acting vulgar in front of kids and visitors. Parties of people overtake tables for what's best described as private parties. The whole place actually resembles a bordello and I hope those artists who sell religious icons in the same place reconsider bringing their art there.

One very shameful thing they do every year is the vodka tasting bar. In actuality it is just a bar where people get quickly drunk on beer and vodka. The sales people don't even check the id of buyers and sell alcohol as children walk by. Especially bad to do this considering Russia has severe nation wide alcoholism problems. Way to re-I force the stereotypes of Russians as drunks.

Also the organizers and the frequent visitors are some sort of Russian nationalists and even racist. I've talked to one of the organizer ladies long ago and she said that it is a big pride to "be a Russian" and such things.

As a Russian I am ashamed that such Russian Center exists in San Francisco. It should have been done in a more respectful and family friendly environment instead of a drunken party style gathering.
