I started this website with the aim of making it useful to as many people as possible. No one has their finger on the pulse of Moscow nightlife like I do and can put this information together in a useful way. Plain and simple.

Moscownightguide is useful to all who want to know about Moscow and Moscow nightlife. 

Everything that I know about the local scene, you will know as well. Because when I travel to another city and want to party, which is not as often as I'd like to, I'd love to have such a resource. That person would be a winner in my book.

Moscownightguide is the information resource that you wish someone created for every city.

Moscownightguide is also for people that come to Moscow (or are already here) and want to party the right way. To have the Real Moscow Nightlife Experience. You do not want to only read about partying in Moscow but you want to experience it. Fuck asking the hostel receptionist and the cab driver with six gold teeth what the best bar is. Ask the right people.

Moscownightguide is for guys that want to experience the best night of their lives.

Moscow nightlife wouldn't be complete if we leave out the women. Cause let's be real here. Russian girls are really the ingredient that makes nightlife so damn delicious. Hell, Russia as a whole would probably not be tolerable.

But fuck those lame pick-up artists who tell you a bunch a rehashed and try to pump you up to "sarge" and "get in the set". I'm in the business of having a good time with beautiful girls, not in the "pick-up artist infield lay report HB8" business.

Moscownightguide is for guys that want to be successful with Russian girls without sounding like a PUA jukebox.

Girls are all well and good but a man needs other interests too. I cover anything that you might be interested about regarding Russia. How to learn Russian, what to do in Moscow and how to live life in Moscow as a foreigner. 

Moscownightguide is for guys that are interested in Russia and its way of life.

However, fuck those lame expat dudes who cannot speak a damn word of the local language after 10+ years. Those guys who then get hookers and think they're good with women. You might live in another foreign city but this knowledge is valid for anyone living abroad. You can learn a ton of social and language skills from living abroad but only if you really want to.

Moscownightguide is for guys that want to improve their social and language skills as foreigners in another country to not end up being douchey expats.

Moscownightguide is also an extension of me as a person. A lot of skills that I learned and acquired, I learned in and through nightlife. Because being out in nightlife can be far more useful beyond downing shots at the bar. At the end of the day I strive to be a well-rounded man and a man of the world. And to party like a savage when the night falls.

Moscownightguide is for guys that want the best in life and
aspire to be well-rounded men of the world.

I came to Moscow in 2014 to finish my degree. The city grew fast on me and after a short detour in 2016, I returned for good. Moscow is one of the most vibrant, dynamic and exciting cities in the world.

The nightlife is fast & loose, just as it should be. Unfortunately I had to work my way through all the Moscow nightclubs and bars myself, so this resource is the site that I wish someone had created for me!

With 4 languages spoken, 5 countries lived in, 20+ countries travelled to, my ride so far has been not too bad. Not to mention the ungodly amount of nights out and all that comes along with it. 

I know Moscow better than any other city in the world. Moscow forces you to grow and teaches you a lot. I will share that knowledge with you to make your life better.
