Review of: Chesterfield Bar Moscow

Type of venue: Spacious bar/club


Almost no dress code.


Rather affordable prices.


Decent energy.

That's good

  • One of the best Wednesday spots

  • Easy to get in even with the annoying bouncers

That needs improvement

  • Very "basic" vibe

Summary: Chesterfield is a good option if you're looking to party on Wednesdays. Other than that it's best recommended to people who want to party with Moscow's students.

Where is the Chesterfield Bar Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in the Chesterfield Bar Moscow?

Music in the Chesterfield Bar Moscow is what you get everywhere else as well, an iTunes list of contemporary international and Russian pop and dance music.

What kind of people go to the Chesterfield Bar Moscow and how is the vibe?

The Chesterfield Bar Moscow is a bar/club on the famous Novy Arbat street. It's a big venue that has a bit of a sports bar vibe even though there are no TV's inside. The layout of the bar is very spread out, which makes you inevitably wonder whether this place ever fills up (it doesn't). 

In terms of it's interior, Chesterfield does have plenty of potential. A very long bar, lots and lots of seating opportunities and a little dancefloor that isn't crammed in between those like it's usually the case. But the vibe is still a little bit "cheap". Bouncers will annoy you at the entrance as if you're entering an exclusive private party. Soft drinks come from the tap, not in a bottle. 

Accordingly, the crowd is younger and more "down to earth". Lots of students in Chesterfield, especially on Wednesdays when it's Ladies night.

Overall, the Chesterfield Bar Moscow is a bit of a mixture between Rolling Stones (in terms of the young crowd) and Papas Place (similar layout).

When should I go to the Chesterfield Bar Moscow?

Best day to come is probably Wednesday because it's Ladies night on that day and girls drink for free. On the weekend it's half or two-thirds popular if you come at the usual times after 1am.

What's the dress code in this club?

Elegance level: low

Almost no dress code in here, it's a rather basic place.

What are the prices like in this club?

Price level: affordable

Cocktails are no more than 500 Rubles and they do drinks deals (see in the tips).

How is the energy in this club?

Energy level: decent

On Wednesdays pretty good, about on par with weekends. The layout of the venue is not conducive but on the dancefloor you do get some action.

So do you have any insider tips or recommendations for the Chesterfield Bar Moscow?

  • There's offers for unlimited drinking: 1,000 Rubles for ladies every night, different prices for guys from 1,000 (Mondays) to 3,000 (Saturdays)

Why you should come to the Chesterfield Bar Moscow

A good choice on Wednesdays, otherwise decent if you're younger and want to drink a lot on a limited budget.
