Given its grand location on the 21st floor of the prestigious new Lotte Plaza tower, you’d think that Kalina Bar would be a more over-the-top. Actually, it’s quite cosy and you’d scare remember you were in a hip Moscow bar save for the insane views (we’re talking 360 panoramas) of the city from way up there. Not just a bar, Kalina also boasts a separate karaoke room in case you feel so inclined, and offers a menu of fresh sushi. There’s also a hookah lounge for the more relaxed, in-for-the-night folks. Kalina is a great Moscow bar for starting off a night – all those glittering lights below remind you there’s a huge, exotic city out there waiting to be explored.
