Dozens of varieties in Moscow Vodka Bar
Moscow?s bar scene just keeps getting better.
A big boost came with the Krasnaya Roza textile factory?s conversion near Park Kultury metro station, thanks to which the city gained Keks and Suzy Wong. Now, the makeover has spread another block back, and the Vodka Bar has been added to what?s becoming a nice little nightlife and entertainment quarter - just what the city needs.
Vodka Bar?s interior design combines blue-and-white Gzhel tiles with aviation-themed mosaics reminiscent of the Mayakovskaya metro station, and huge, glittery Stalin-goes-disco red star chandeliers. High ceilings and large windows give a spacious feel. Flat-screen televisions show movies with Russian-language subtitles, so you can follow the action without the sound spoiling the vibe.
But the star of the show is the menu - and aptly for a place calling itself a vodka bar, there are dozens of varieties to choose from, priced from 90 to 120 rubles per 45-gram shot. From little-known Kuzmich v Banyu and Kuzmich v Gosti to old favorites like Poland?s Zubrowka and Ukraine?s Nemiroff honey-chili gorilka, there?s enough variety to keep it interesting.
