New Bars in Moscow
The first floor is a regular Chinese fast food place, where you can have noodles just for 150 roubles, but if you open the velvet curtains you will find a dark cellar with hidden secret club with pshychedelic music and champagne with absinthe at the bar.
You would never believe that just a few steps down the ground floor, hidden behind a dark velvet curtain there is a lavish club, which has been number 1 gossip in the city - everybody heard about some secret bar but nobody knew where it actually was. Mendeleev is a classical concept of secret place. It's cellar rooms have been decorated to look like a winery with paintings and other design objects.
The bar has unique recipes for cocktails based on absinthe and puer tea.
So if you want to survive the techno and psychedelic party at Mendeleev, don't forget to have some gyoza upstairs and face control after 10 pm at the door.
Mandarin Combustible is not just a city cafe, dance bar or authentic restaurant in the city centre. Mandarin Combustible could be called all of these cliches, but the owners of this place would like to amend any kind of classification. MC is a place for locals and other nice people. Some of us call it traditional Continental restaurant, others would say that Mandarin is a bar at the hotel which never existed or a dark tea room with extra facilities, or even evening light area with an extensive bar menu. So, it's better to make you personal judgement and check the place.
The famous for Manon, Kafka and other places area is now home to a new bar called Jagger, named after the legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. As usual this is more than just a bar, it is a restaurant and a night club. The place has been technically working since the end of July, and it should have official opening in November, 2012.
The bar was quite empty over the week days, but summer weekends were very hot. The summer terrace is now closed, so the place should be opened again soon for official opening of the club inside the old style brick building, which is promised to be another hot spot for nightlife.
At day time Don’t Tell Mama is more like lounge café, where you can enjoy exquisite menu and have a business meeting. Relaxing atmosphere and cosy sofas are welcoming, whereas over night time the place is transformed into a club with the dance floor, perfect sound and mirror celling.
The Chef of this place is the famous Argentinian Adrian Ketglas, who opened his first bar at the age of 18 and received Michelin star at 2005. He created more than just menu for Don’t Tell Mama; it's like a piece of art indulging you to the gastronomical journey. The Bar is managed by British Beck Narzi, the graduate of United Kingdom Bar Academy.
The interior has a glam rock style, which is a work of Juna Megre, chief designer of design bureau Megre Interiors.
