Located in the luxurious Fours Seasons Hotel Moscow, which is just steps from Red Square, the Kremlin and the State Duma, Moskovsky Bar offers memorable views of some of the most iconic landmarks on Moscow’s cityscape. Inside, the bar is a modern take on the decadent and seductive drinking dens of the 1930s, with classical and Soviet jazz playing in the background. The bar is known for its quirky takes on classic cocktails from around the world, giving them a uniquely Russian flavour with local and traditional ingredients such as kvass, birch sap, sea buckthorn and 30 different kinds of Siberian honey. The well-known Moscow Mule is a speciality and the Trans-Siberian Express is another house special – a tastebud tantalising combination of Beluga Vodka, homemade sea buckthorn jam, ginger, lemon, orange and rosemary. Grab a seat at the bar, among the stylish crowd who gather here from near and far, and watch masterful head bartender Bek Narzi do his stuff. The food menu – providing snacks or a full meal – also offers a Russian twist on bar favourites, with dishes like roasted eggplant caviar. And of course there’s plenty of fine Champagnes available, along with an extensive spirits list, including some traditional Russian liquors.
