"I'm just thinking about why I came here."
"Because this best bar in town. Actually, only bar."
—Oliver Queen and Anatoly Knyazev[src]

Cafe Lyublyu (Russian: Кафе́ Люблю́) was a cafe in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. It was described by Anatoly Knyazev as the only bar in town. A party of Solntsevskaya Bratva was held in the bar, attended by Oliver Queen.[1]

History

Cafe Lyublyu sign behind Oliver Queen and Anatoly Knyazev

Cafe Lyublyu's sign can be seen behind Oliver and Anatoly.

After being pronounced an official member of Solntsevskaya Bratva, Oliver Queen was brought to the party at Cafe Lyublyu, attended by other crime bosses like Viktor and Anatoly Knyazev. Viktor approached Oliver to discuss his motivations for joining, threatening the American. He then had his thugs stage a rape attempt on a woman from the bar, goading Oliver to fall into his trap. Not sensing the ruse, Oliver ended up backstabbed by Viktor's thugs, then saved by a disguised Christopher Chance, whom Anatoly hired to be Oliver's bodyguard.[1]

After a clash in the Bratva, the dying Pakhan Ishmael Gregor was brought to the Cafe by Oliver. Later on, Oliver and the Bratva celebrated the apparent "death" of Konstantin Kovar at Cafe Lyublyu, with Oliver getting a Bratva tattoo signifying his promotion to the rank of Captain/Avtoritet.[2]
