There were some snickers when Dasha Zhukova, the It girl companion of billionaire Roman Abramovich known more for her interest in fashion than in serious art, announced plans to open the Moscow equivalent of the Tate Modern. But Zhukova has since proven her commitment with her Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. The center, which occupies an industrial-chic Constructivist bus depot on the grounds of Moscow's Lubavitcher Jewish community center, opened with a splash in 2008 with parties peopled by the international art jet set and a retrospective of conceptual artist Ilya Kabakov's works. Since then, exhibitions have ranged from the modern art collection of French businessman François Pinault to the edgy video creations of Russia's AES+F group, which addresses post-9/11 clash-of-civilizations angst. There's a stellar bookstore full of coffee-table volumes at very reasonable prices, and a café that is equally surprising: tasty, trendy, and supremely affordable, despite the gilt-colored couches and armchairs. —Sophia Kishkovsky

Open Mondays through Thursdays 11 am to 9 pm, Fridays through Sundays 11 am to 10 pm. Opening hours may vary due to special events.
