Summary: Garage is a small club that's been around forever but can almost be considered a hidden gem. One of the best clubs for clubbing on off-days, afterparties or Black music. However, it is not one of the popular megaclubs that everyone knows.

Where is the Garage Club Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in Garage?

Techno, tech house and electro on the afterparty days. Black music and Hip Hop on Wednesdays and Sundays. 

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

The Garage Club Moscow is one of the oldest Moscow nightclubs around. It's been around almost as long as the Propaganda club and can be considered a real Moscow institution. But they are similar not only in terms of age but also in terms of their concept. Garage Club Moscow is also rather small and affordable.

Unlike the Propaganda club it has two distinct areas: upstairs you can chill at the bar or on one of the multiple couches that you can also order for bottle service. The real dancefloor with DJ is downstairs and tiny for a Moscow nightclub. That can be considered an advantage though, since the club has its fanbase and doesn't need a huge crowd for a good party.

The vibe at the Garage Club Moscow is fairly good and energetic. It's the only club that serves the Black music niche in Moscow and it can get quite full on the dancefloor on these days. On the "afterparty days" you get the usual mixed crowd coming in from several different nightclubs.

Overall the crowd is on average on the younger side of 25 but not as young as in Gipsy or Rolling Stones for example. On the days with Black music, there's also disproportionately many Black people, which are otherwise a rarity in Moscow and Moscow nightlife.

When should I go to Garage?

On Wednesdays and Sundays the place really fills up from 2am on. Thursdays through Saturdays (the afterparty days) any time from 4am is a good option.

What's the dress code in this club?

Elegance level: standard​​​​

Generally quite relaxed. Anything from casual to fancy will work but most people come in "Hip Hop/Urban" style. 

What are the prices like in this club?

Price level: normal

Generally fairly cheap. Cocktails are 400-600 Rubles. 

How is the energy in this club?

Energy level: above average

Garage punches above its weight in terms of energy. It's small but the parties are quite energetic.

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

  • Drink deals are very generous for people who want to come earlier on afterparty days. 1+2 on Thursdays and 1+1 on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Why you should come to the Garage Club Moscow

If you like Black music this is your only real option in Moscow. If not, it's a good, affordable afterparty option on the weekends and a club to shortlist on weekdays.
