What’s your first affiliation once you assume
The Purple Sq.?
Improper, improper and flawed. What you have to be enthusiastic about are long-legged, small-waisted, high-heeled blondes and brunettes, who’re able to celebration and have a great time. Perhaps you noticed a number of the insanity that transpired through the World Cup in 2018. I can guarantee you, it was even crazier than what you may need seen or heard within the media. The excellent news is that coming in 2019 is definitely a lot better since you gained’t have hordes of drunk soccer followers spoiling the nightlife. However earlier than we get to that, there are a few issues you want to find out about Moscow.
When is the most effective time to go to Moscow?
When you’re on the lookout for women (and what else
would you be on the lookout for in Moscow), then there’s actually no dangerous time to go to the
Nonetheless, summer time is clearly extra nice than winter for apparent causes. My private suggestions are these months within the following order:
Summer time in Moscow lasts from the start of
June till the top of August. It’s heat and sunny with low air humidity, which
makes heat days a pleasing prevalence, until you need to take the metro. Might
is a stunning spring month, whereas September nonetheless will get simply sufficient daylight to be
value a go to in.
August in Moscow is an OFF-month that you need to keep away from. Many Russians journey to their summer time homes (dachas) and the town feels considerably much less busy in August. The climate is, in fact, nonetheless nice.
To make your choice even simpler listed here are
the perfect causes for summer time and winter journeys to Moscow:
You need to go to in summer time to:
– Not cope with snow and chilly climate
– Take in the summertime vibe when everybody’s outdoors
– Chat up women in the course of the day
– Social gathering outdoors on the quite a few summer time terraces within the golf equipment
You must go to in winter to:
the hustle and bustle and decorations earlier than NYE (massive vacation in Russia)
– Get together simply as regular because it
doesn’t cease throughout winter
– Swoop women in fur coats and thigh
– Escape the opposite vacationers which might be
too hen to go to in winter
The most effective holidays are eighth of March
(Ladies’s Day = women get free booze in a number of locations) and Halloween (don’t
want to elucidate this one).
The place to remain in Moscow
Fortunately, lodging in Moscow could be very
reasonably priced in comparison with different prime tier cities.
Airbnb is a strong choice and a livable, old-school Soviet house will
be round 50$ an evening in an honest location.
Hostels are usually not similar to European celebration hostels. They’re typically like
flats that may host a number of individuals.
Nevertheless, hostels in Moscow are actually low cost and yow will discover good ones
for lower than 20$.
When it comes to inns, your finances is the restrict. Respectable motels begin at 50$
and haven’t any higher restrict.
I marked a couple of nightlife clusters within the map under:
To be lifeless within the middle, keep inside the first yellow ring. That method,
all of the essential landmarks and nightlife clusters are inside a 15 minute cab
journey. The outer orange ring continues to be good, you’ll simply have to make use of the metro or
a taxi extra typically.
Moscow could be very massive, very unfold out and has large roads. In summer time,
you’ll be able to stroll a superb a part of the middle so long as you’re not hungover and have
power. At night time, you’ll need to depend on taxis.
It’s also very homogenous, which means there are not any stark variations
Some have extra cafes and bars, whereas others could be extra hipster-ish. General, you gained’t really feel an enormous distinction although. So long as you’re central and near a metro station, you’re wonderful.
How protected is Moscow
Moscow is a really protected metropolis. Security measures are excessive all over the place,
particularly at metro stations, purchasing malls and any type of public locations.
Your largest enemies are you being silly and cab drivers making an attempt to
overcharge you. In fact, don’t go round flashing your wealth, speaking
obnoxiously loud English to those that don’t need to hear it and don’t decide
fights. However that’s widespread sense stuff as a result of Moscow is far more safe than
many Western cities.
No-go areas don’t actually exist. Security measures in golf equipment are excessive and no
one takes an curiosity in you, until you actually attempt within the fallacious method.
Police is unlikely to cease you when you’re white. Until you seem like a
Central Asian migrant, you most likely won’t ever need to cope with police.
Tips on how to get across the metropolis
You possibly can stroll the town in summer time however be ready to clock 10 kilometers
on a busy day. Aside from that, take taxis and the metro. Taxis in Moscow are
handy and low cost. The primary apps in use are Uber, Gett and Yandex Taxi. Inside
the middle, you’ll not often pay greater than 10$. There isn’t a extra level in
flagging down random automobiles because of the great protection by official taxis. I additionally
advocate taking the metro, even when just for touristic functions.
Costs in Moscow
You are able to do Moscow the
playboy means or the cheapskate method. Some examples:
Consuming out: McDonald’s is reasonable – a cheeseburger is like 1$ and even
much less. Different quick meals is reasonable as nicely.
Center-class eating places or chains will probably be round 20-30$ for you and
The highest eating places like White Rabbit can be 70-100$+ for one,
relying on what you’re getting.
In nightlife, most of the time, you don’t have cowl charges. Some
electro golf equipment do one, others have a minimal spend on the door. You’ll simply
spend that on booze. Covers are often round 15$, deposits perhaps 20$.
Drinks within the bars and golf equipment can go from 5$ (actually primary ones) to
10-15$ (in style mainstream) as much as 20$+ (high-end locations).
Bottle service is definitely an excellent deal compared to that. You possibly can
get desk reservations from as little as 50$ per individual in some venues. Prime
venues begin at 650$ and may go as much as 2,000$ if you would like a personal room with
that as nicely.
You will get round with English solely however don’t anticipate English ranges to
be notably excessive. I might say that at greatest half of younger individuals converse
English on an honest degree. It is possible for you to to make your self understood, order
meals and drinks. Particularly younger women obtained very excited by the inflow of
foreigners for the World Cup however talking even somewhat little bit of Russian will go
a great distance.
I do advocate studying the Cyrillic alphabet for simpler navigation
although, even when Moscow has develop into extra tourist-friendly. It’s a lot simpler than
it appears and can show you how to out tremendously.
On-line recreation could be very
rewarding in Moscow since you canl discover women of all totally different social
courses: consideration whores, common women,
hipsters, women looking for a boyfriend, professionals, just about
something throughout the board.
There’s additionally a plethora
of apps that you should use for getting contacts, both prematurely or whenever you’re
already in Moscow. Listed here are the 2 most essential ones:
The great ol’ basic. Nonetheless very
well-liked and in case you don’t converse Russian, in all probability your most suitable option. Nevertheless,
these days fairly ineffective with out getting Tinder Plus.
The closest Russian clone of
Tinder. It kind of works like Tinder used to again within the day once you have been
nonetheless getting all of the matches proper once you begin swiping. One of many few apps
which might be nonetheless helpful with out getting the paid upgrades.
Disregard another apps as a result of they’re principally a waste of time and also you’ll have greater than sufficient leads from these two alone. Instagram is very efficient too. I like to recommend you hit up my website to seek out all the great nightclubs in Moscow, then search for them on Instagram and undergo the women who’ve tagged their pictures on the golf equipment. It’s a bit of labor however loads of reward too.
I’m not an enormous fan of day recreation, so I’m
not going to run you thru what I feel are the most effective methods of doing
it. Moscow is
big and completely rammed with attractive women. Be happy to talk them up wherever you
need. That being stated, the next
choices are nice in the course of the “good climate months”:
My favourite spot within the metropolis, particularly in the summertime. Masses and a great deal of women right here.
It’s additionally an enormous leisure space that’s related to 2 different adjoining
parks. In summer time completely rammed with individuals and a fav amongst younger
Kuznetsky Most Space
Tons of bars and cafes right here, which
made it one of many get together areas through the World Cup. Throughout “regular occasions” it’s
quieter however you’ll nonetheless come throughout loads of hotties.
Malaya Bronnaya ulitsa /Patriarshie
This can be a very fancy and upscale a part of city that has numerous cafes and bars
as properly. Individuals dwelling on this space are well-off. Most women you’ll see listed here are very
sharky. Sharp recreation and a superb bankroll
are required. That stated, you possibly can spot real dime
items on this space.
In fact, there’s all the time the choice of roaming round malls. I’ve
seen greater than just some stunners in Europeisky mall on Kievskaya or Afimoll in Moscow Metropolis.
Now, that is the place it will get actually fascinating. Moscow has a few of the best nightlife (for MEN) on the earth. Upsides are:
– No closing hours
– Most golf equipment don’t cost a canopy
– Bottle service is an effective deal compared to different top-tier cities
– Usually cheaper than say London or New York
– Ladies are attractive as fuck
– You’ll be able to go just about 24hours straight for those who do nightclub, after-hours membership, strip membership
– Strip golf equipment are enjoyable and you may shore there as nicely
– You possibly can pull from golf equipment if you understand how
– On off-days (something besides Fri+Sat) nightlife is extra lifeless than alive
– You’ll nonetheless need to wine and entertain the women all night time lengthy if you’d like motion
– Service tradition is non-existent and employees are sometimes incompetent
– Much less selection in women than, say, within the US
As you possibly can see, the benefits are nice, the others are simply minor hiccups. Right here’s a really detailed breakdown of crucial venues you need to be conscious of:
A high-end hotspot with events on Thursdays and Sundays too. It’s actually small and really table-heavy, corresponding to US golf equipment. Has a rap theme to it and pulls plenty of individuals with cash, gold diggers, Instagram starlets…you get the deal. Extremely popular with younger those that spend daddy’s cash on desk service. When you get bottles right here, you’re assured to have a desk full of girls in the event you’re sensible about it.
Extra of a restaurant than a membership. Numerous venues in Moscow are arrange like this. Extra for older males however you’ll see drop-dead beautiful ladies right here. Very expensive and the environment shouldn’t be that nice. Russian pop live shows from round 2am, which kills the vibe and ends the get together. Should you converse in English women may turn out to be and you may bounce them to a different place. Usually not high-energy sufficient for me although.
Three-part venue with a greater vibe. The primary half is an open bar with loads of seating, the second is one other bar with a tiny dance flooring and tables for bottle service. The perfect for women is the surface smoking patio. Usually good digital music right here and loads of handsome ladies. Older women (30+) in right here as properly. You’ll in all probability should take your woman(s) to a different venue from right here. Additionally they have one other room tucked away inside subsequent to the loos (with Russian music). Not as fashionable anymore because it was.
The Thursday hotspot and one other very table-heavy venue. They do have a pleasant outdoors space although and a bar to talk up the ladies. Numerous hotties right here but in addition plenty of execs and semi-pros. Bankroll required.
Probably the most infamous high-end membership in Moscow, again after a year-long renovation break. For the World Cup, it was cut up into two elements between a “simply posh” terrace space and an “uber posh” inside space, the place you just about needed to have desk service. The within space had outrageous ratios filled with fashions, “fashions” and professionals although. Lately it’s good however inferior to it was a couple of years in the past (which is a recurring theme for a lot of venues as you’ll see). On higher nights going robust till about Three-4AM.
One other restaurant-turned-club. Very straightforward to enter although and costs are comparably low. Extra of an choice to start out the night time and bounce at 2am-3am. Loads of significantly engaging women however not high-energy sufficient to swoop proper then and there. Bounce ‘em with you in the event that they’re cool or seize their contact. Good digital music right here however used tob e higher a yr or two in the past.
Like Valenok a Novikov
institution and a really energetic restaurant. The shortage of an actual dancefloor is
very annoying however Magadan makes up with an enormous quantity of party-hungry scorching
ladies. Principally business and Russian music. Strongly beneficial for preparties
(and never solely) even when the shortage of area is an enormous ache.
One other hip hop membership
that’s similar to Secret Room and run by considered one of Russia’s most well-known
rappers. The inside is fairly good and extra conducive to chatting up women
than at Secret Room as a result of there’s a minimum of considerably of a dance flooring. Much less
regulars although and , subsequently, not all the time assured to be poppin’. Value a
go to as you’ll be able to transfer on shortly if it’s sluggish.
Newly opened high-end
restaurant membership subsequent to DNK. Solely been right here as soon as in the course of the “pre-launch” and
the door man stated it will be a closed institution. That may be simply humorous
speak although, you need to no less than attempt your luck. Filled with stunners and fairly massive
for Moscow requirements. Sadly very table-heavy too and never straightforward for
home and electro venue. This membership has every part you must achieve success –
good bookings, a great location and good inside. The one drawback is that it’s
empty half of the time. It’s proper subsequent to Magadan however sadly not as
widespread. Value a attempt if entry is free and transfer on if it’s lame.
This venue was part of the world-famous nightclub chain Area. It’s now making a comeback as a live performance venue (type of) for kind of famos hip hop and rap performers from Russia and the US. The primary few live shows have been bought out and the membership is completely large. I can’t actually touch upon how respectable it’s for getting women however I wasn’t an enormous of the previous Area as a result of at live shows everybody tends to be extra targeted on the artist performing.
Gastrokvartal Varka (former Jagger Bar):
Reverse of Secret Room. This membership acquired a serious makeover in 2018 and is concentrating on the “celebration hungry high-end crowd” now. Mixture of younger and previous individuals. The power is nice and it’s some of the notorious hookup locations on the town despite the fact that it received a bit tamer because the renovation (or perhaps I simply acquired older). Loads of cute to scorching women right here and other people get shitfaced so odds of pulling are respectable. Common age about 25 however the variance is huge. Good membership should you fancy strolling round and never simply standing nonetheless in a single place.
The “common”/celebration spots: these are the venues which aren’t high-end however someplace within the center, some posher, some much less. Sometimes they function extra foreigners as nicely, particularly the primary few.
Has decreased lots in high quality and principally visited by provincial people and youthful individuals nowadays. The vibe is social gathering however the membership went from 7s and 8s to 6s and 7s (and even worse than that). There are two areas, one with extra digital music and elaborate exhibits with nude fashions, the opposite one has simply common membership music. Additionally, among the best golf equipment for bottle service as a result of you possibly can create extra bodily separation right here. Excessive-energy. Not low cost, particularly contemplating its substandard viewers.
This place has an identical vibe to Duran Bar however with a barely youthful crowd and a bit extra underground-ish vibe. Additionally a tad cheaper and their events go till 8am within the morning (in summer time at the very least). Women listed here are between scorching and raver type so you should discover a couple of which might be down for motion (=need to/have already had booze or coke). In winter solely nice on nights with good DJ bookings.
Like Icon, a membership that was wonderful however went downhill due to large quantities of foreigners and poor door coverage. Huge membership with a pleasant inside (assume: palms and swimming pools inside). You possibly can undoubtedly pull right here, I’ve heard the raciest tales from women which might be regulars. However for my private style, there are too many youngsters with shitty attitudes, poor outfits and too many teams. Music continues to be respectable, they do good mashup mixes in right here. Usually high-energy as nicely. Extremely fashionable with vacationers and overseas trade college students.
A fav of the older Moscow crowd, tiny bar that’s all the time rammed with individuals. You’ll prefer it if it’s your sort of crowd (round 30, considerably posh) and also you don’t thoughts the horrible music and the way crowded it’s. You’ll be able to pull right here however you may have to bounce your women to a different place. Moved from Patriarch Ponds to Kuznetsky Most space.
The “rougher” locations: these are your low cost choices, the sort of locations that college students, suburban Muscovites and “actual Russians” go to.
Rock n Roll Bar:
Someplace on the sting between a traditional place and extra of a “rougher” place. Rock-themed bar that draws a great deal of individuals on the weekend and is opened seven days every week. Good, excessive power right here and low cost costs. Worse ratios than elsewhere however in case you are engaging and well-dressed, you’ll stick out like a sore thumb. A very good backup choice and busy after 5am too.
Women night time on Wednesdays right here, which suggests you’ll get loads of college students and youngsters which might be consuming at no cost. Completely outsized place however good for isolation if you wish to drag away a woman from the dancefloor. On all different days, I’d in all probability keep away from as a result of it isn’t all that less expensive and the gang is on the youthful finish right here.
Shishas Sferum Bar:
One of many spots which are occurring seven days every week. Fairly low-end and on the weekends you shouldn’t even hassle with it. On weekdays it is likely one of the few actual choices as a result of they do closely discounted or free drinks for women virtually each night time. Totally different music types on totally different days as nicely, if reminiscence serves proper. In the event you’re hell-bent on discovering women in the course of the week you must cease by right here.
Afterhours spots: after 4am-5am individuals begin leaving the golf equipment and both bounce house or go to afterhours spots.
Hottest afterhours place these days. It attracts mainstream individuals and a few drugsters too. Loads of scorching women right here and very popular go-gos. Pulling is certainly attainable right here. You need to both convey the women with you or discover some which are excessive on booze/coke/balloons (massive factor in Moscow these days). Lasts till 10am or 12am, I feel the newest I’ve ever been was 9am.
Truly, my favourite afterhours spot as a result of they’ve the perfect digital music. Most individuals are excessive off their asses. Nice vibe as a result of it’s not as darkish as in most different afterhours spots. They’ve two areas, yet one more for chatting on the bar, the opposite one for dancing and spacing out. Extra underground-ish however with larger costs and warmer women. For swooping it’s so-so, I used to be actually hammered each time I went.
An older membership that has been round perpetually and serves two niches: Black Music on Wednesdays and Sundays and afterparties from Thursdays to Saturdays. Might be good enjoyable, haven’t been there a ton however it attracts the standard afterhours crowd on lately and loads of hotties on the others as properly. Swooping is certainly attainable right here.
Bars: listed here are some bars which might be good for a cocktail, pregame or dates as properly.
Massive hipster bar in entrance of the Christ-the-Saviour church. They’ve probably the most lovely summer time terrace with nice views. Good place for pre-party as a result of it attracts a very good combination of individuals between hipsters and common cute women.
Centrally situated bar that’s rammed on weekends. Respectable spot to deliver women and begin the night time with them there. Downstairs is the Ugolek restaurant and upstairs the precise bar, which is a spot of its personal. They’ve nice digital music and a really cozy environment. Great place to start out the night time.
Tucked away in a Chinese language restaurant’s basement. Just like Ugolek/Leveldva however these days it’s so “secret” that it’s half-populated with foreigners on weekdays and weekends. Good for cocktails and has a great environment.
Meals markets: lastly, meals markets have been rising in reputation in Moscow. On the weekends, they’re splendid locations to start out your night time early (about 9-10PM) and transfer on since all of them shut at midnight. You possibly can seize some low cost meals, a drink or two and scoop out whether or not there’s expertise, which there all the time is. The preferred ones are Centralny Rynok (Metro Trubnaya), Vokrug Sveta (Metro Lubyanka) and DEPO (Metro Novoslobodskaya).
