City Space Bar and Lounge :: Moscow, Russia

December 5, 2009 by  
Category: Nightlife & Dining


Rated one of the top ten bars in the world by Bartender’s Guide and, City Space Bar and Lounge in Moscow, Russia is the ultimate in chic night spots. Located on the 34th floor of the Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, its distinctive bowl shaped construction and floor to ceiling windows afford a dramatic 365 degree view of Moscow. Designed by Yury Gnedovsky (who also did the Moscow House of Music), City Space is an ultra-modern adventure that is breathing new life into old world Russia. Featuring an astoundingly eclectic and diverse drink menu along with a sizable choice of cigars, it is the place to be for stylish up and coming Muscovites as well as travelers to this vibrant old city.

City Space is managed by Bek Narzi and their team of mixologists (who also call themselves cocktail designers) create both uniquely Russian drinks whilst also adding a bit of Russian flair to the old standards. One of their signature creations is the Honey Smash which is a mix of mandarin flavored vodka, lemon juice, honey, brown sugar and orange juice. It is both a delightful and refreshing libation, challenging the senses. Their twist on the classic martini matches Russky Standart vodka with a homemade birch tree syrup (very similar in flavor to vermouth). This is definitely one to try if you are a fan of the classics. In addition to all of their wonderful and creative cocktails, City Space also offers a menu of charming traditional Japanese cuisine for those looking for a bit of a nosh with their nightcap. Their spring rolls are unbelievably delicious and must be tried to be believed.

Along with the outstanding drinks and superb food, the music at City Space is always pumping. Lively and colorful DJs from around the world (together with their own brilliant house DJ) spin tunes that will get you off of their swanky couches and straight onto the dance floor. With a focus on quality, much of what comes into the bar is hand selected by the proprietors; from the fresh juices to the signature straws swimming in your drink. City Space is a stylish, glamorous, hedonistic hot spot that is not to be missed. It is the place to see and be seen. Though the prices are reminiscent of high end clubs in Los Angeles and New York, one need only walk into this decadent lounge to see what all the fuss is about.
