Best Rooftop Bars (Restaurants) in Moscow
These are 7 Best Rooftop Bars in Moscow
We are looking for the best rooftop bars Moscow’s. Another winter is in the books and Moscow’s citizens are looking to spend as much time outdoors as possible. In this period Moscow transforms itself into an outdoor city filled with trendy destinations to enjoy long days and cool nights. Indeed, as the sky in Moscow is one of the most astonishing that I’ve ever seen, summer here is all about rooftop terraces with fantastic views.
Here is a selection of the coolest bars and restaurants on top of Moscow’s sprawling buildings.
Strelka is definitely a summer must and it’s one of my favorite. It’s located in the center of Bolotny Island, right opposite the Christ the Savior Cathedral. Food and drinks are great, guests can choose from an extensive cocktail list and an international menu. There’s a beautiful spacious terrace with an amazing view that overlooks the Moscow river. Yes, you can find terraces much higher up but if you prefer a more charming riverside view to a skyline – this is the one for you.

Located in the center of Moscow, on the roof of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, O2 lounge has one of the best view over the Red Square and the Kremlin.

With a high class lounge feel, Kalina is a perfect summer destination for a date, business dinner or a friends night out.
