Whizz up in a private elevator to the 27th floor and walk into this rather cool and surprisingly relaxing bar, with spectacular views – especially at dusk as the city lights are coming on.
The friendly staff are not over-solicitous, so you can settle back into the plush red leather booths and watch the world go by 27 floors below. As the name suggests, Red Bar’s décor is scarlet red and gold, designed as a New York lounge but without the air of pretension.
The subdued music alternates between the resident pianist and a low-key DJ. Romantic and relaxing, Red is a great place to unwind, removed from the debauchery of Moscow’s hectic nightlife below. An eclectic and impressive cocktail list introduces a few first-rate inventions from the Red Bar’s own mixologists.
Modern European cuisine is on offer in the restaurant but we recommend you just come here to drink. Gentleman with vertigo beware, the wall behind the urinals is a floor-to-ceiling window, which makes for an incredibly memorable, panoramic bathroom experience.
