Decadent restaurant located right off of the main boulevard of Moscow - Tverskaya Street. This magical restaurant brings you back to the pre-Soviet Tsarist Russian ways with authentic cuisine, era-specific decor and language. Order from the menu's large offering of Pelmeni (Russian dumplings originating from Siberia). And the best part - the restaurant is open 24 hours with the same excellent service each minute of it!
Authentic Russian food in the comfort of an authentic Russian apartment from the Soviet era - what more would you want from a visit to Moscow? Oh wait! There's a cat that lives there too!
The most exquisite place in Moscow to have breakfast or brunch. Try their special Eggs Benedict - you'll be impressed.
Awesome spot to grab coffee during the day or a midnight snack. This restaurant serves some of the best borscht and beef stroganoff and is open 24/7.
A pompous Alice in Wonderland inspired restaurant located on top of a big shopping mall - with its very own secret entrance. A must to visit for best views of Moscow and a twist on Russian cuisine specials.
Moscow views for days can be found at this swanky rooftop spot. Come early or late.
Funnest bar/lounge in town for casual drinks and easy-going dancing. The bar is a converted designer shop and is located on the gorgeous Stoleshnikov Pereulok amongst the most beautiful of shops.
Named after the famous Russian chemist, Dmitri Mendeleev - known for his creation of the Periodic Table and Vodka itself. This incredible secret bar in Moscow is inconspicuously located under an Asian noodle shop serving some of the most exotic cocktails and cocktail presentations. A second room opens in the back on weekends with particularly deep house tunes to turn everyone into a raver.
Super hidden bar, something out of a Hutong fairy tale - you won't be disappointed (if you find it).
Secret-is club/lounge located above the wonderful restaurant Ugolek. The music is deep house with top underground DJs flown there from all over the world.
