There's more to Moscow than vodka, although if you want to
take full advantage of the exchange rate, sticking to the local
tipple isn't such a bad idea. Moscow's bar scene is ever
changing as it keeps up with the latest trends from London
and New York. In fact, there's a heavy emphasis on style - as
you'll notice from the somewhat strict door policies followed
by the more expensive bars and clubs. That said, there are
plenty of hidden away basement bars with big comfy sofas,
cool sounds and a definite lounge atmosphere ideal for
whiling away the hours. Moscow never sleeps.
