Hungry Duck, Moscow
I was told this was going to be a crazy, wild, too insane for words night and I was expecting something pretty spectacular, but it appears as though the Hungry Duck is closed for good.
It's even reflected in the nightclub's wikipedia entry:
As trustable as wikipedia entries are.
Christ - what can I say that hasn't been said before about this place? Check out the Moscow Time Out review for a brilliant precis on the 'Horrors of the Hungry Duck'. This place is legendary for its brazen debauchery, easy conquests, and volume of alcohol consumed by Slavic and Western patrons.
Topless women dancing on the bar, a random simulated sex-show, and ***ty music all adds up to a typical Hungry Duck night. This joint isn't classy, but its one for the nightclub tourist trail.

Dress Code: No trainers. Don't think shirt with collar is required. T-shirt is probably OK.
This is probably the most famous (or infamous) club in Moscow. However, I found it to be a good little club with no hint of trouble. It was packed with people just wanting to have a good time. The bar area is quite small but it never took too long to get served. Don't be put off by any reports you may read elsewhere on the net, I'd be there right now if I was in Moscow at the moment.
I didn't check by myself, but heard a lot of stories from my friends who often go to Moscow. The nightlife in Moscow is really wild. One of the examples is a club that existed some years ago and was named 'Wild Duck'. The main feature of this place was a differentiated entry for first hours of work of the club. To be more precise, first hours were reserved for ladies only, who were admitted freely and had a possibility to drink at club's expense as much as they wanted. After that guys were also allowed to enter, but not free, of course. Believe me, there were always plenty of those who wished to pay much money to get inside ;)
