Moscow is not inundated with skyscrapers like New York City, but it does have its fair share of rooftop bars, restaurants and lounges. Do not leave the city without having seen it from a bird’s eye perspective at least once. Nothing’s better suited to that than a classy, high-end rooftop bar. Here’s my list of Moscow’s best luxury rooftop bars.
You cannot visit Moscow without having been to Strelka Bar, which is located in the hip district around the former Red October chocolate factory. This is by far my personal favorite and many people agree with me.
Its rooftop terrace sits alongside the Moskva river and boasts the best view of the Christ-the-Savior church that Moscow has to offer. If you can spare the time to visit it outside the peak times in the evenings and weekends, you won’t even have to reserve a table.
