Moscow: O2 Lounge
Every May, Conde Nast Traveler releases its Hot List, a collection of the best new hotels, spas, restaurants, and nightspots. Check the Daily Traveler every day for a new post from this year's list.
Twelve stories above Tverskaya Ulitsa, atop the new Ritz-Carlton, you'll find O2 Lounge. Here you'll discover the best views in the city: the Kremlin, the entrance to Red Square, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Order sushi and sake, or better yet, ask for a bottle of one of their finest champagnes, bubbly being the drink of choice at the Lounge Oxygène, as some Francophiles have nicknamed it. This place is über-Moscow, basking in the over-the-topness post-Soviet Russia is famous (or notorious) for: opulence, style, edge, and a lot of very beautiful women.
Address: Tverskaya Street 3
