Review of: Casa Agave Moscow

Type of venue: Latin-themed restaurant/bar

Elegance

Relaxed rather than elegant.

Prices

Affordable drinks and food.

Energy

Even more stars if you like Latin dancing.

That's good

  • Good atmosphere (it's Latino!)
  • Decent food
  • Always busy on the weekend

That needs improvement

  • Could do with a bit more mixed music
  • A very lively restaurant/bar, not a club

Summary: If you are into the Latino style and like Salsa, Bachata, Merengue and whatever else is out there, this place is a must for you. It's the most popular Mexican/Latin American bar in Moscow. Don't visit if you expect a clubbier atmosphere or want to dance to mainstream music, that is the exception here.

Where is Casa Agave Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in Casa Agave?

Casa Agave serves the pretty rare Latino niche in Moscow. Hence the music is mostly Latin: salsa, bachata, reggeaton and other Spanish-speaking music. Commercial club music is the exception in this spot. 

What kind of people go to Casa Agave and how is the vibe?

Casa Agave is first and foremost a Mexican restaurant. Like many other restaurants in Moscow, it also turns into a bar/nightclub on Fridays and Saturdays.

Compared to similar venues though, Casa Agave differs in two main ways. First, its obvious focus on the Latino niche. If you don't like Latin music and Latin-styled parties, this place will not be for you. Most people that visit are either Latinos themselves or attracted to this type of music and vibe. Going to Casa Agave means dancing Salsa, Bachata or Merengue instead of slamming down shots at the bar and pumping basses. They do a really good job of creating the right type of vibe, so if you're into this you will definitely like the venue.

Second, it is a restaurant first and second and only third a place to party. You can party without a problem until the early morning hours. But if you come to Casa Agave, you most likely will come earlier than to most other nightlife venues and stay for the food and the atmosphere as much as for the nightlife. At other places it feels pretty unnatural to order food and sip on a glass of wine with house music or Russian pop pumping in the background. Here, the transition between eating, dancing and socializing is much more fluent and natural. Hence people come often in groups, which does not mean you cannot come alone, because it is very much an open and friendly place.

When should I go to Casa Agave?

Fridays and Saturdays are good for partying. You can come pretty much any time but the peak is like in most other places somewhere between 12am and 2am.

What's the dress code in this bar?

Elegance level: relaxed

No real face control here so to speak, so come dressed decently and you are good to go.

What are the prices like in this bar?

Price level: normal

Drinks are cheap with cocktails priced around 400 Rubles. A solid dinner will set you back anywhere between 600 and 1200 Rubles, depending on what and how much you are getting, which is normal for Moscow.

How is the energy in this bar?

Energy level: energetic

Casa Agave is definitely quite energetic and not a boring place to be, especially if you are into Latin dancing.

So do you have any insider tips or recommendations for Casa Agave?

  • Mexican cuisine here is solid, so you won't make a mistake if you grab something to eat. Do not expect it to be too authentic though.

Why you should come to Casa Agave Moscow

If you like Latin music and Latin style, Casa Agave has to be your go-to spot in Moscow.
