Housed within the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, it’s no surprise that the bar attracts a hip crowd - with pumping music, hot staff and a seriously slick interior.
Exposed brick walls, vast windows overlooking the river and Art Deco chandeliers which hang from the industrial ceiling set this place on fire - not to mention the cocktails. Strelka is a great cross-section between the glitz and the artists. You can either rub shoulders with Moscow’s elite hipsters or chill out in the low slung, deep velvet chairs which look out over the river.
Bar Chick went for the Mango Batida - cachaca, mango, pineapple and lime - an absolute winner - fresh and zingy. Hit them up in summer months for an epic roof terrace overlooking the river.
