Denis Simachev Shop & Bar, Moscow
Tel: 7 495 629 5702
Concierge.com's insider take:
Right in the middle of Stoleshnikov Pereulok, one of Moscow's ritziest boutique streets, this bar's a snack spot for fashionistas by day (breakfast, salads, fresh-squeezed juices). By night, the disco balls glitter in all their glory and Motown funk blasts through the speakers. There's dancing in the aisles, at the tables, everywherepartly because the bar is so small, mostly because it's so popular. "Face control" is tough. The second-floor shop is closed during the debauchery, so make a daytime stop to check out Simachev's interesting aesthetic. He's most famous for the cheeky T-shirt he designed in 2005depicting Vladimir Putin framed in roses.
