Easy to enter if you're dressed appropriately.


Pretty affordable.


High energy to start the night.

  • Cosy interior

That needs improvement

  • Brazen bar staff

Summary: Cherdak is a good spot if you want to start the night at a busy place with lots of people and good energy. You also have the opportunity to start with a dinner and ease into the party night when the crowd starts flowing in. Beware of the shameless bar staff though.

What is currently hot in the charts mixed with the occasional local hit.

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

Cherdak Moscow (in English: attic) is one of the many restaurants that also aspires to make some money by being a bar/club on the side. With its minuscule dancefloor that is surrounded by a multitude of tables, Cherdak is pretty similar to Oblaka and Siberia. However, Cherdak is not quite as high-end of a place and that might be why it has surprisingly decent energy considering its restaurant-ish vibe. Despite little space for movement, the crowd flocks to the dancefloor to party and celebrate. The music does its part to get them fired up and alcohol is generally flowing freely.

People are less posh than in the mentioned spots that have a similar layout. Average age is about mid-20s and you get a lot of groups that are celebrating birthdays or just having a proper night out together. People already being in that "party mode" contributes to the slightly more "high-energy vibe" of Cherdak. It overall feels like a very lively restaurant with party musc and that is pretty much what it is. 

When should I go to Cherdak?

Come here between 12 and 1am. Those folks who are not at tables and celebrating a special occasion come to Cherdak to pre-party and bounce betweem 2am and 3am to another venue.

What's the dress code in this club?

Elegance level: standard​​​​

Regular smart-casual/sexy dress code that is the norm for Moscow restaurant/club crossovers.

What are the prices like in this club?

Price level: average

Regular prices, cocktails around 500 Rubles, Long Islands 600 Rubles

How is the energy in this club?

Energy level: above average

Considering that it's a restaurant Cherdak has decent enough energy and can get more heated sometimes than you would expect.

So do you have any insider tips or recommendations for Cherdak?

  • Don't let them see you coming from Kamchatka straight over, they don't like that (although I doubt you'd be dressed to go to both at the same time).
  • It can be on or off and you'll usually figure it out pretty quickly from the amount of people and the energy whether it's a good night or not.
  • The bar staff often pretend to "forget" about your change.

Why you should come to Cherdak Moscow

It's the best pre-party location around this area and a good high-energy option to start the night.
