Head to 16 Tons to enjoy a pint and catch a roster of Russian and international music talent. This concert hall and pub-style venue, in the centre of Moscow, is most famous for the music and functioning brewery. The name of the club takes inspiration from the Merle Travis song Sixteen Tons, which was written in 1946 and became popular in 1955 after Tennessee Ernie Ford sang it.

On weekdays it is open from 11am till 12am and functions as a restaurant and bar, while on Fridays and Saturdays the party goes on from 11pm till 6am and showcases top house music DJs.
