2011-10-21  Moscow: The World’s Nightlife Capital
The transformation is complete. Moscow, once an austere center of communism, has now become a vibrant metropolis. From the glitzy skyscrapers of its new business center to Europe’s largest shopping malls, the city lives and breathes capitalism. There is no better time to experience Moscow’s new identity than at night. AskMen recently ranked Moscow among the world’s top ten cities for nightlife alongside world-renowned clubbing destinations like Rio, Ibiza and Vegas. The magazine dubs Russia’s capital city the “mecca of glorious hedonism” and touts Moscow’s fabulous clubs, opulent lifestyles, and refined fashion sense. Here you are sure to find world-class dining, upscale pubs, techno dancehalls, glamorous strip clubs and everything in between. While meticulous face-control at Moscow’s best venues may remind visitors of its stern past, the wild parties inside will immerse them in the city’s fabulous present. It is the elegance of Russian women, however, that provides the icing on the cake and makes Moscow (and Russia generally) a must-see for connoisseurs of beauty. Many of the world’s great cities can boast a thrilling club scene. None of them can match the gracefulness and sophistication of Russian women. The global economic recession has not slowed Moscow down. In this city of 12 million, there is always room for more night-time entertainment, partying and dancing. Moscow truly is the city that never sleeps.
