Moscow Clubbing Overview

Moscow has a lively and eclectic nightlife. You can go to live music clubs such as Tochka or B1 or you can enjoy the delights of decadent nightclubs playing House and Techno tunes. Prices are rather exaggerated at some establishments but very reasonable at others. The clubbers here are not necessarily the most welcoming and you need to make a concerted effort to socialize. There are some lavish clubs which in other city’s may be out of people’s price range but here they may offer free entry and affordable alcohol.

There are three places in particular which locals are advocates of and that is the fashionable Simachev Bar,  the infamous Solyanaka and Strelka Bar. You can’t go wrong with those joints and don’t expect to be spoilt with choice because aside from this list there are many dingy, overpriced venues which aren’t even worth considering.
