While on a recent business trip to Moscow one of the guys got a reservation at City Space Bar. He eulogised about how good it was meant to be. He was not wrong!!!
The entry to the bar is through the Swiss hotel foyer which is impressive in its own right, but when arriving at the 34th floor the fun really begins. The Space Bar is by invitation only,( or a reservation in the executive rooms at the hotel), so without a reservation I believe it is not possible to enter and I suspect the discrete " security" guard is on hand to ensure there is no issues with the beautiful women who greets you on arrival. Once in you are led to your table and the panoramic views of the city are truly stunning!! I would advice going early evening and seeing the transformation of the city from daylight into night is well worth it.
The waiters are very attentive and speak very good English.
The cocktails are a must and are a work of art in their own right, ( my personal favourite was the whiskey sour, but I'm told the Long Island Ice tea was superb).
The food menu is fantastic and the meal we had was one (if not the best), meal we had in Moscow.
The bar has a fantastic sound system and a DJ who is absolutely superb, the music is spot on and sets a great atmosphere for your evening.
I since have found it is rated as one of the "coolest" bars in the world in a magazine and I would not argue with it.
I could not find fault with the service,drinks,food,music,views at all, but possibly the lighting could be a little softer as the night progresses.
It's not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but quality costs and I will defiantly return when in Moscow again.
I would recommend it to anyone.
