The ventures of restauranteur Arkady Novikov’s are always impressively forward looking. Glamorous successes, such as Vogue Café, are a testament to his bold contributions to Moscow’s glitzy drinking scene. Yet, with beer bar Kamchatka, Novikov seems to look to the past, evoking romantic Russia. If you want a taste of a Perestroika-esque Russia, enjoy a drink in the pleasant stolovaya atmosphere. The cafeteria-style interior exudes a retro vibe of post-Soviet nostalgia while the simple menu of traditional fare goes down well with the very reasonably priced beers.
