Read the Moscownightguide review of Mendeleev Bar Moscow. I cover all you need to know from a Moscow bar.


Where is the Mendeleev Bar Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in Mendeleev Bar?

Thursdays are Jazz nights, otherwise deep house or other kind of laid-back electronic music.

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

Mendeleev Bar is one of Moscow's not-so-secret hidden bars. The entrance is tucked away in a Chinese fast food joint, from where you walk down the stairs into the actual bar. The masonry walls and the dim lighting make for a very cozy and unique atmosphere, which makes the bar feel very compact. The interior is also, very un-Moscow like, styled rather simple and cozy with inviting sofas and armchairs instead of over-the-top decor like in most other spots.

It is probably one of Moscow's best and most popular speakeasys. Although it is well-known and popular, Mendeleev Bar rarely feels overrun by people. It has a very particular, comfortable yet mystic vibe that you won't find in almost any other Moscow bar.

The crowd is usually in their late 20s or older. Mostly well-situated people, or what passes as such judged on their appearance.  However, be aware that Mendeleev Bar is not one of your classic "see and be seen" places to come and show off. Think more "cozy cigar place" than "Instagram hotspot".

When should I go to Mendeleev Bar?

Come in the early evening to relax with a cocktail and enjoy the atmosphere. If you come later, Mendeleev Bar gets more busy and becomes a great place to meet people and socialize. It is definitely more of a preparty place though. 

What's the dress code in this bar?

Elegance level: above average

Face control in Mendeleev Bar is rather strict but you shouldn't have big issues if you come well-dressed.

What are the prices like in this bar?

Price level: above average

Cocktails are very good but not cheap, around 700 Rubles. No bottle service in Mendeleev Bar.

How is the energy in this bar?

Energy level: chill

Mendeleev Bar is more of a speakeasy than a high-energy bar. Since it's below ground level it has more of a laid-back vibe. 

So do you have any insider tips or recommendations for Mendeleev Bar?

  • There is a hidden room behind the dancefloor. Get in touch with me if you're interested in accessing it.  

Why you should come to the Mendeleev Bar Moscow

If you like a sophisticated bar where you can sip good cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere then Mendeleev Bar is just right for you. 

I came to Russia in 2014 to study. I thought I would leave after one year to pursue a boring office job. But this country offers the adventures and opportunities that you don’t find anymore in the West. I decided to stay in the Wild East.

If you’re sociable, communicative and speak their language, Russians love you. I was decent at the former two and I learned the latter. These days my Russian is fluent and I keep improving my communication skills every day.

I strongly believe that confidence and persistence are the keys to success when dealing with Russia and its people. My mission is to help you to establish a connection with this amazing country, be it through dating, life or language.
