Read the Moscownightguide review of the Miks club Moscow. I cover all you need to know from a Moscow nightclub.
Review of: Miks Club Moscow
Type of venue: Commercial afterparty club
Not too elegant but not too relaxed either.
Stadanrd prices plus a small cover.
As heated as it gets at afterparties.
That needs improvement
Summary: Miks is one of the most popular clubs for people that want to keep the party going past 5am. If you can't stand dark places with electronic music and people on substances then you should probably stay away.
Where is the Miks club Moscow?
What kind of music do they play in Miks?
Mostly tech house and techno. Only electronic music in Miks.
What kind of people go to Miks and how is the vibe?
When the party crowd is done with the “regular” clubs but wants to party some more, Miks is their club of choice. It opens at 2am but since it is an afterhours spot it doesn’t really get going before 4am.
After the closure of Krysha Mira next door, Miks mopped up a lot of that club’s business. It is now the most “mainstream” afterhours club. Some of the “in” crowd (or at least those who think they are) congregate in Miks. Don’t be surprised to see faces that you saw earlier in the night at another spot.
Because it is popular and in a good location, Miks packs a good crowd most of the times. It's a mainstream club with a mainstream crowd that gives itself a touch of underground to appear a bit edgier.
Its typical afterhours vibe is an unusual combination of both worlds: hammering basses, no daylight inside and most people are probably on some kind of a substance (or have at least a gas balloon). That gives it a slightly seedy touch. At the same time it is professionally managed and attracts the typical Moscow “look at me” crowd instead of genuine underground people.
Its setup helps, since it is a spacious venue that even provides an area to relax and kick back with a drink or a shisha. In contrast to a regular underground afterhours club it also has lots of tables. With that in mind the door should not be a big problem. Be chill and friendly and 4 out of 5 times you’ll get in without a hassle.
When should I go to Miks?
If you want to make a 100% sure to get in or you genuinely enjoy the tunes then by all means come at 2am. Otherwise don’t bother before 4am-5am because it starts quite slow. It’s an afterhours club so people tend to come here even as late as 10am.
