Summary: The Secret Room Moscow is your spot if you want have deep pockets and want to party with Moscow's high society and all kinds of "stars and starlets". 

Where is the Secret Room Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in Secret Room Moscow?

Only Hip Hop, Rap and R&B, both domestic and international. It's the first real high-end venue with Black Music in Moscow.

What kind of people go to the Secret Room Moscow and how is the vibe?

Secret Room is the new project by the promo team that was behind the famous but closed Soho Rooms. The crowd at the club is accordingly of the more expensive and exclusive kind. In front of the club you'll see the same kind of cars that you will see at Duran Bar, Oblaka and the sorts. 

The venue spreads out over two floors. Downstairs is the Cafe Druzhba, which is packed with the usual "look at me" crowd. This is a safe choice to find people on any day of the week but it's mostly tables and a restaurant type of venue.

Upstairs is the actual club, which in fact is just the same type of layout one floor up. It's very table-heavy and features only a tiny makeshift stage for the DJ. You can chill at the bar but the place is small and there's no big turnover of people. It reminded me quite a bit of clubs in NYC.

It's the absolute Number 1 "place to be" now in Moscow. Accordingly, Secret Room gets very packed very fast. The party at Secret Room is pretty good though because all people that come have money to blow and definitely do not give any fucks about the day after.

When should I go to the Secret Room Moscow?

You can preparty for a bit downstairs at the fairly small bar in Cafe Druzhba. The actual club opens at midnight and don't wait too long because the door is the hardest in Moscow at the moment. 

It's not really a place that you want to bounce in and out of. If you come, you better stay for a bit because it is hard enough to get in. 

There's party on Thursdays on Sundays too and plenty of people go. The Secret Room crowd does not need to worry about cash or working hours. Just in case you're wondering. 

What's the dress code in this club?

Elegance level:​​​​ low

It's a Hip Hop, Rap type of place but if you don't know anyone or don't have a table the you should not gamble. Dress sharp and dress to impress, otherwise you'll get smoked at the door.

What are the prices like in this club?

Price level: very high

This club isn't for cheapskates. Two drinks will easily set you back 2000 Rubles or more. Table deposits are 70,000 Rubles and up.

How is the energy in this club?

Energy level: high

The layout is not really good for my taste but you cannot argue with the energy. You'll probably not have the same kind of fun without a table.

So do you have any insider tips or recommendations for the Secret Room Moscow?

  • Come early cause after 1am your chances to get in are very slim without a table.
  • Come with an empty bladder if you don't want to wait 30mins for the restroom.
  • Barkeepers are ridicoulous and tip themselves. Don't do cash here cause they'll still try to scam you even if you tip generously.

Why you should come to the Secret Room Moscow

​Because Secret Room is the "place to be" in Moscow right now. If you want to see a couple of Instagram starlets partying it up, this is your spot. On Thursdays and Sundays too.
