    Moscow Nightlife

    I found that if you're a business traveler and you're looking to meet someone special in Moscow and especially if you don't speak English, it might be easier to use an English speed dating service - I encountered one by accident in club B2, they are having event every Wednesday at 8PM. The hostesses were very helpful and overall I was happy that I...

    Saint Petersburg Nightlife

    he Theater We crossed over to the theatre with lots of time, luckily, because everyone pointed us in the direction of our seats but no one could tell or show us where they were because we did not understand Russian. To make matters worse, they did not speak English, and furthermore, they thought we were German. What a Shmazol!! Finally this young...

  • Doug & Marty's Boar House

    Moscow Nightlife

    believe me-i'm very far from being snob..but this place is something standing apart and not in a good way! overcrowded, 2/3 of food and drinks they say they have in the menu they dont have-for exemple i asked for some wine (i didnt care which one, i wanted it just to be wine, not going into details) and they didnt have any, so i had to drink vodka,...

  • Hungry Duck

    Moscow Nightlife

    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: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungry_Duck As trustable as wikipedia entries are.

    After an absolutely fascinating afternoon at the Museum of the Great Patriotic War I was headed for the Museum of Modern Art to complete my exposure to culture for the day - this, despite one of my Russian friends warning me that MoMA is definitely "Ni-Kulturny"! Checking my map it seemed the easiest Metro would be Pushkinskaya, and being late...

At midnight they take away all tables to clear the place for a dancefloor and I can't say that it's very convenient. Music in house style. It's nice in the beginnig but I couldn't take it anymore and at about 2am we headed to...

    When I was in Moscow I found it a lot easier to go to the expat bars to start the evening off. Most people who drink in the expat bars are bi lingual eg Russian-English so it is a good start off point to get information on what night clubs are in favour. Also most people I met were very friendly and will more than likley to invite you along to...

    That evening, we went to see the New Moscow Circus. They give a good performance considering their low budget. Instead of lions you get dogs; instead of tigers, you get cats, and so on. The best and funniest part of the show was the hilarious jumping goats. Yeap, you heard me right :). There was also an ice show, a tight-rope walk, several clown...
