Description

Are you a newcomer? Or maybe you’d like to explore more and taste something new? Let’s start bar hopping! The essence of Moscow nightlife is revealed in the city’s best cocktail bars.

This experience is all about bars with great concepts: hidden, nice views, hand-crafted drinks, delicious food, and non-touristic prices.

We all know the secret passwords that afford us entry to the best spots in town. You’ll meet our local and foreign friends, see how the city looks at night, and have the chance to practise your Russian, English, or Spanish.

If you like, you can even jump over the bar and mix cocktails for your friends together with a pro bartender. He’ll teach you about the history, recipes, and much more.

Extra: I can arrange a photo session with a pro photographer for an additional fee.

  • Cup of tea/coffee at the meeting point
  • At some venues you’ll get free shots and great discounts

We had an awesome night with Niko. He took us to four different bars and each of them super cool in its climate and with special cocktails but moreover, we could have never been able to discover them without him. He is also very cool and so are his friends (he knows a lot of people so you’ll probably find someone he knows in the bar you go to but they are all nice, interesting and of course English-speaking). Maybe a little discount for groups of more than one person would be nice since you pay for his time and knowledge anyhow but it’s totally worth it 👍🏻
Niko was an outstanding guide with insider knowledge on each bar and the people who run it. He had an exceptional command of English and I felt as though I was drinking with a dear friend :)
Niko is by far the best guide for you to meet Moscow at night! he is a nice, educated person, a nice guy to talk to! I recommend his work, without him would not have known spot private and cozy places in Moscow! And the best drinks! Everything it’s great! I hope see you in Brazil soon ;) spassiba;)
