Modern Moscow is not a place of understatement. Case in point: the 11th floor O2 Lounge at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Located within sight of the Kremlin, the hotel itself has an air of 18th century Tsarist opulence. An elevator whisks people to the rooftop bar, with its dramatic glass dome and panoramic views of the city. The Lounge boasts a vodka sommelier and some 400 varieties of the stuff. The sushi is to die for. The prices are best not talked about.
