Monday is the only evening the club shuts before sunrise, while on Sundays it hosts the most popular LGBTQ parties in town. In the daytime, this catch-all spot offers delicious steaks and sandwiches.

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.

Lookin Rooms

If you’re serious about partying, head to Lookin Rooms, where you can dance under strobe lights until 6am along with 800 new friends. This two-storey building wouldn’t look out of place in New York, featuring a huge dance floor along with balconies and lounge areas. 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.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
