Tel: 7 495 623 9660's insider take:

The preponderance of hipper-than-thou nightspots for Moscow's Manolo-shod, Maserati-driving moneybags might imply there's no place for a grungy intellectual to while away the weekends and wee hours. Not so. Bilingua is a bookstore/café /concert hall/film club/intellectual discussion venue in an appropriately hidden but conveniently central side street (behind the former KGB headquarters, practically across the street from Club XII). The industrial interior is remarkably cozy, especially among the book stacks, and while the food and drinks are cheap, the talk isn't. There are free discos on Friday and Saturday nights.

Open 24/7.
