What kind of people go to Ugolek and how is the vibe?
The Ugolek Bar Moscow (read: U-gah-lyok, Russian for charcoal) is a big. two-floored restaurant and bar in the center of Moscow. The two floors have distinct vibes, so I'll focus on them seperately.
Downstairs you have a big open space that is open-doors in summer. The interior is rustic, yet stylish: think lots of wood and a lot of brow-ish and wooden color tones. There's lots of seating opportunities and an open kitchen as well.
The interior coupled with the popularity of Ugolek create a busy but intimate vibe, especially on the weekends. People come to chat and meet over drinks and food.
The bar upstairs has a cozier vibe. It's smaller, there's dimmed lights and armchairs to lean back in. Alternatively you can sip a drink at the bar (very busy during peak time). On the weekends you have a DJ with electronic music that turns the spot into a bit of a relaxed preparty spot.
Ugolek pulls a mixed crowd, so you get everything from trendy people over young professionals to middle-aged, upper class Muscovites.
When should I go to Ugolek?
Busiest times are on Friday and Saturday evenings from 8pm onwards. Any other time you should be able to find a place without reserving a table.
