Ikra, Moscow

Ulitsa Kazakova Dom 8A
Russia 105064
Tel: 7 495 778 5651's insider take:

Located in an increasingly hip neighborhood near Kursky train station, Ikra is called Moscow's first New York–style rock club. It's housed in a former theater with winding corridors and velvety couches; includes a café; and hosts some of the best live club concerts in town, from rock to house (New York City's Gogol Bordello has played here). Tickets for the concert and party afterward are sold separately and can be purchased in advance (which is recommended). There are free funk, lounge, and acid jazz DJ sets on Thursdays, and monthly gay parties. The name, by the way, means caviar—if you look closely after a drink or two, you'll see the psychedelic wall designs are actually big eggs.

Open daily at noon; concerts and after-parties Fridays and Saturdays 8 pm to 6 am.
