Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Moscow

Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is an appropriate name for this cafe where the charm is understated, the atmosphere snug and the prices reasonable.
Sretenskaya Hotel
Decorated in Russian folkloric style, the Stretenskaya is a colourful place which boasts a winter garden, sauna, pool, gym and underground parking.
Konkovo Market
A chance to pit your wits against the traders of Moscow's Konkovo market. Practice your poker face and be prepared to walk away if you don't get your way.
Shafran
Be transported to a far-off land of falafel, hummus and pitta bread at this beautifully decorated Lebanese restaurant.
Aldebaran
The stained-glass windows and sweeping Art Nouveau marble staircase of this cafe neatly compliment a visit to the museums opposite. Traditional Russian and European cafe food is served.
Bar Strelka
Riverside bar in the Strelka Institute of Media, Architecture and Design attracts a hip, young crowd...
Ballantine’s Bar
If you're a little fed up of the stringent face-control exercised at many a Moscow establishment, head over to Ballantine's where doormen are a little more lenient and the dance-floor is the domain of a young, fun-loving crowd.
Stereo Café
 By day Stereo Cafe is a chill lounge, by night the DJ is King.
Arbat
Arbat is a more affordable choice of hotel in the centre of Moscow and it's within easy walking distance of what is, arguably, the best Italian restaurant in the city.
