Sky Lounge, Moscow
Russian Academy of Sciences
Tel: 7 495 938 5775
Concierge.com's insider take:
In 2005, Sky Lounge, a chic bar and lounge, replaced the 22nd-floor restaurant in the Academy of Sciences headquarters. With its nooks, couches, curtains, one of Moscow's longest bars, a nearly wraparound balcony, and an Asian influenced-design, it looks like something straight out of Hong Kong or San Francisco. But it's really all about what's outsideMoscow, spread out below like a satellite image from space. (Judging by the menu, they're definitely charging for the view; there's also a Meade telescope for observing the stars.) Although the building, with its huge copper sculpture astride it, is easy to spot, it takes a genius to find the entrance. It's across the street from the monument to Yuri Gagarin, the first cosmonaut; but we recommend hiring a driver, or a Russian scientist, to help find the way.
Opens daily at 1 pm.
