Review of: Strelka Bar Moscow

Type of venue: Trendy bar with a summer terrace


Trendy and relaxed.


Normal Moscow prices.


Always busy but never hectic.

That's good

That needs improvement

  • Closes at 3am
  • Friendly but slow staff

Summary: Strelka is your go-to spot for having relaxed drinks in a cool and trendy bar. The view in summer is stunning and the atmosphere makes it a great place to start the night.

Where is the Strelka Bar Moscow?

What kind of music do they play in Strelka?

It's a mix between funk, lounge and house that is really hard to describe. It does fit the very relaxed and laid-back atmosphere of the venue to a T though.

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

Strelka is definitely not a nightclub but a bar with a very distinct vibe. That begins with entering the bar, which is fairly spacious and has a nice red-brownish interior with plenty of places to sit, either on comfortable leather couches or just the classic bar seats. In the summer months though the bar is fairly empty because everyone is enjoying themselves right outside the bar. The DJ migrates as well and the whole scene resembles more an old school get-together at someone's cottage than a regular bar.

You can also make your way upstairs to one of the most popular and impressive terraces with a stunning view of Moscow's Christ-the-savior church. When it comes kicking back and relaxing with a well-mixed cocktail, this is definitely one of the best places in the city. For bigger parties or special events (like World Cup matches 2018) Strelka also opens its big stage with stands for spectators.

The people fit the vibe and you'll encounter a broad mix of modern, trendy, hip, fashionable and creative people. Strelka Bar is a favourite of Moscow's urban and creative crowd but it is open to anyone.

Why you should come to Strelka Bar

Because it has the most stunning summer terrace and the perfect vibe to ease yourself into the night.

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.
