Another of Moscow's newest bars and one of the city's hippest joints that has opened under the eye of the Russian Cocktail Club. There is a noticeable style and comraderie to the team which immediately lifts the spirits: Nmgir, the bar manager, is a gracious host and the rest of the bar team are young, enthusiastic and eager to impress.
Exposed brick and graffiti-covered breeze blocks provide a stylistic counterpoint to the chesterfield sofas, expensive lighting and enigmatic and elegant staff, creating an edgy but extravagant feel similar to that so well-achieved by the likes of Shoreditch House in London.
The drinks are well-executed but there are still definitely signs of free thinking, not just on the drinks list but in many aspects of the service - the option to add sliced watermelon to your water glasses is a nice touch. Being at the cutting edge of all things new and trendy in Moscow, it can get very, very busy and waiting time for drinks can suffer.
