  The MASSIVE Moscow Datasheet 2017
Posted by: icrus - 09-23-2017, 07:24 PM - Forum: Travel & Adventure - Replies (3)

Intro


Unlike some other forums this one seems to be a bit short on Moscow datasheets, so I’m happy to chip in. I’ve been living in Moscow for two years and can say that it’s one of the Top 3 cities in the world to me. The lows can be frustrating but the highs are really high.


I broke down the datasheet according to the following categories:


When to go: which time of the year is good to visit, aka is it really cold as balls in winter?

Arrival: a section on which airport to fly into and how to get to the city

Logistics/Where to stay: what’s a good area to stay and how is the city constructed?

Transport: metro, cabs and walking – when to take which option?

Prices: how much does life cost?

Safety:  are you gonna get beaten up by Russian football hooligans and Chechen war vets? (hint: only if you’re dumb af)

Online Game: Tinder, Mamba, Badoo and all the other lame apps that I don’t use anymore but still might be good use for someone visiting

Day Game: what are good spots to meet sexy Russians during the day 

Night Game: leaving the best for last…a MASSIVE breakdown of nightlife venues


Warning: this is a 6,000+ word datasheet, so you might want to set aside some time if you actually want to read through the whole thing at once.


Part 1 - When to go



The climate in Moscow is very continental. The air, unlike in NYC for example, is very dry. That means that even very high and very low temperatures become bearable.


So how cold does it really get?


Between December and March it is pretty much consistently below 0 Celsius. Jan and Feb are the coldest months and yes, you’ll easily get a few days in a row where it’s -20C or less. Thanks to the continental climate though, it is not quite as bad as it sounds. If you pack yourself in in warm clothing, you’ll be good. St.Petersburg is much worse in that regard. The -27C I experienced there once really made your balls shrink.


When does summer start?


The funny thing about Moscow weather is that there’s almost no spring and fall. 

Spring lasts for a good month or so in May when temperatures creep up to 20C. This year unfortunately was particularly bad and we had snow as late as June. Fall starts around Mid-September and also lasts a good month before the first snow starts mid to end of October. 
Actual summer only lasts for a good three months, June to beginning of September. It does usually get pretty warm, around +25, sometimes even above that. Temperatures are bearable and you’ll only really sweat in the metro.

So to recap

6 months of miserable weather (Nov-April)
1 month good (May)
3 months summer (June-Aug)
2 months summer turning into winter (Sep, Oct)


Now when should you actually visit?


Although this might sound particularly bad now, it is actually not at all. Because if you’re out for a good time in Moscow, it doesn’t fucking matter whether you come in winter or in summer.
The best months for visiting are (in that order): June, May, July, September
I excluded August because August is a classic DOWN MONTH. Muscovites leave for dachas or holidays abroad and the city empties out a lot. I’d honestly recommend coming in winter over August.


Benefits of visiting in summer are:
- You don’t have to deal with snow and cold weather
- Everyone’s out and about and walking and being outside will be much more pleasant
- Girls wear less clothing and you get to roam around the parks and chat them up
- 4 out of 5 venues have summer terraces to sit and party outside

Benefits of visiting in winter are:
- You get to experience the hustle and bustle and decorations before NYE, which is a big deal in Russia (provided you come in time)
- People don’t really leave for holidays so everyone will be running towards the clubs in winter to escape the weekday grind 
- Girls wear outrageously hot overknees and fur coats that, quite frankly, look even better than their summer outfits
- Less tourists overall (though Moscow is so spaced out you don’t notice them a lot) 


So to recap:

Yes, I’d recommend visiting in the warmer months but you should not be deterred by the weather. I’d just avoid a few specific dates and weeks like the January holidays (1-10) and the month of August.



Part 2 - How to get your ass to the city



Now this is a short section but I think it warrants an extra few words since you can save yourself some hassle and just have a better experience overall. Unless you get in touch with me to help you out, you’ll have to organize this stuff yourself, so pay good attention.

Moscow has 4 airports but afaik most, if not all, flights to Europe and North America fly into Domodedovo (DME) or Sheremetyevo (SVO). Both are a good deal outside the city but connected with trains to the center. 

My advice:

Definitely try flying into Sheremetyevo!

It is newer, better organized, nicer and will just overall save you a lot of time and nerves, from passing border control to checking in. I mostly fly DME and it drives me nuts every time. They are doing major construction work for the World Cup next year so the situation might improve but this advice still stands.
As far as transportation to the city is concerned, you’ll have to choose between cabs and the Aeroexpress train. Unless, of course, you took care of that beforehand somehow.

The train is cheaper, runs every 30mins and takes you to the circle line in the center. Unfortunately from there you’ll have to deal with changing to the metro and that can be quite unpleasant, especially if you have a lot of luggage and arrive at peak times. You’ll probably also find it hard to find your way through the Moscow metro if it’s your first time and you don’t read Russian. Yes, they do have sort of English info stands and signs in English now but it’s still not all that tourist-friendly.

My recommendation: take a cab

It’s still cheap and just way more convenient. You can get an Uber or Gett, both should be around 20 bucks to the center if you take the cheapest option and maybe 50 if you take a Mercedes (never done, don’t know). It might be a bit iffy, however, with the language barrier and I can’t really say how many drivers speak decent enough English.

Whatever you do, do not get a cab from one of the guys trying to chat you up at the airport!

No matter how “official” they might be, they’re not. They’re scammers and scammers do not deserve to be paid, no matter if it still seems comparably cheap to other major cities. For the money they want to charge you, you can get an Uber Black.



Part 3 - Logistics and Moscow City Center



For better understanding, I drew up a crude map with some rough indicators of what is happening where:

[Image: kmiHIc1.jpg]

These are by no means complete but serve just as a rough indicator. Basically your best case scenario is to be within the first yellow ring. This means you are dead in the center and everything will be a 15-20mins cab ride away tops. Anything within the half-visible orange ring is still good but you’ll need to take the metro/a cab to get to the center.

Moscow is very big and very spread out. Unlike in NYC or London roads are massive. During the day you can walk a good part of the city (in summer) but at night you will be restricted to cabbing it when you’re jumping places. 

Unlike these cities Moscow is also very centralized in the sense that you do not really have quarters that are completely different from one another. Some might have more cafes and bars and others might be more hipsterish but overall they’re all broadly similar. Hence why I can’t really give a top recommendation on which area to stay in besides the obvious tip that being in the center is more convenient (though not necessary). A good rule of thumb is the closer to a metro station, the better.



Part 4 - How to get around



I already briefly mentioned Uber and Gett and these two, together with Yandex taxi should be your go-to apps for hailing a cab. Super convenient and very cheap. I pay about 10 bucks for a 30-45min ride home from the clubs. Basically Uber Black will set you back the cost of a normal cab in a Western city. Gipsy cabs (aka hailing down any random car) still exist but much less than they used to thanks to the improved cab supply and cheap prices. Basically there is no upside in riding with some dodgy stranger in his Lada when you can wait 5mins and take an official cab.

I do still recommend taking the metro, even if only for touristic purposes. Here’s a map:

Metro Map

It not only serves as a mean of transportation but also as a mean of orientation, so you can orientate yourself according to metro stations. Anything within the brown circle is considered central. As you might know, the Moscow metro is almost sacred and stations are very elaborate and a sight to see in itself. Absolutely no comparison to Western metro systems that are dirty, smelly and full of shady characters. It also runs extremely efficiently and in the center you’ll never have to wait more than 2mins for a train.



Part 5 - Prices



I’ll address each cost point separately.


Accomodation


As often the case in Moscow, you can do it really cheap or scandalously expensive. If you’re good with living 50km out of the center (but still within Metro reach), you can get an apartment for 400$. Or you can live dead in the center in a really fancy place for 1,500$. Or, if you really need to show off, in one of the skyscrapers, that will be much better connected to the center from 2018 on, for 3,000$+.

I pay 750$ for an apartment that is fairly out of the center but on the red line. Takes me about 35mins by Metro and 25mins by cab to get to the center. It’s definitely one of the best apartments I’ve seen so far in Moscow, so you’d probably pay double the price for prime location.

In all honesty it is more a matter of convenience than necessity to live in the center. Would I drop double the price if I could easily afford it? Probably. Do I have other priorities at the moment? Yes, I do. To put it bluntly, your location will never cockblock you because Muscovites are simply used to big distances.

I can’t really speak for hotels, I think a good hotel goes for about 100$ a night in a central location. Airbnb has the usual markup over long-term rent, so you can probably add another 25% or so to what I mentioned.


Groceries:


The quality isn’t amazing but the prices are low. I don’t track my expenses on that in detail (prob should) but I’d put it around 300$ at best. That’s with eating at home most of the time.


Transportation:


I already mentioned cabs being super cheap. Really anything above a tenner is simply a rip-off. I’d rather wait 5mins than being ripped off. Time is money and all but I’m not rewarding scammer behavior. 

Metro is even cheaper, one ride costs you 1$, no matter how far you go. If you get a card with a lot of rides like I do, cost goes down another 40% or so. I spend maybe 30$ on the metro at best.


Eating out:


Same story as for accommodation. McD is cheap – a cheeseburger is like 1$ or so, don’t even know. If you get food for you and the skinny girl next to you in a middle class restaurant or one of the chains, it’s gonna be somewhere between 25-35$. If you decide to eat in one of Moscow’s best restaurants like White Rabbit, it’ll be 70-100$+ for one, depending on what you’re getting. 


Nightlife:


Now there’s almost never a cover fee, so that is pretty sweet. A couple of clubs do a cover, often clubs with electronic music. Usually somewhere around 20$. Sometimes clubs ask you for a min spend at the door and you have to get a card. That can be anywhere between 25$ and 45$. With my rampant drinking I usually easily exceed that.

Bottle service is actually a much better deal in comparison to that and you can get table reservations from as little as 50$ per person in some venues. Top venues start from 650$ and can go up to 2,000$ if you want a private room with that as well (I reckon that’s for swooping right then and there haha). 


Gym:


Don’t go to the gym since I work out at home but I think it starts from 35$ a month.


Clothes:


Slightly more expensive than in Europe and much more so than in the US. Think 100$+ for new Levis.


Leisure:


Random stuff like cinema, sports events etc. A good ballpark number is always 25$. If you get cheap seats to wherever you’re going and get a drink and a snack with it then you’ll end up somewhere around this number. Scale it up for better seats, bigger events and having a girl with you.


Travel:


Flying out is unfortunately not very cheap. Cheapest flights are to my native Munich for about 200$. I paid a whooping 350$ to get to Cyprus. Could’ve gone to New York for 150$ more. I think flying to some SEA destinations is fairly cheap as well. Flights within Russia are cheap but few cities besides St.Petersburg warrant a visit.



Part 6 - How to stay safe



The last section before we get to the meaty stuff Big Grin

Generally Moscow is very safe. In my two years here I’ve never been robbed, threatened or even felt unsafe. Terrorism does exist in Russia too but safety measures are very high, especially in the metro and on public holidays or events. Generally the worst thing that can happen to you is your own stupidity or being scammed by a cab driver. So don’t go around flashing your wealth, talking obnoxiously loud English to people that don’t want to hear it, picking fights with the wrong kind of people (especially Caucasus). Common sense stuff really. Within the center there’s no such thing as a no-go area and even in the suburbs I couldn’t think of any especially dodgy areas. Safety measures in the clubs are high and no one takes an interest in you unless you really try to in the wrong way.

That said, on to the interesting part…



Part 7 - Online Game



Personally I deleted any apps a long time ago, simply because they are not my style, rob me of my best strengths, waste my time and generally decreased in quality a lot.
However, if you’re coming for the first time and haven’t smashed models left and right yet Wink you’ll still be impressed by the quality. In general I’d say that there’s no such thing as “there’s only damaged girls on there” but rather a mix of everything. Attention whores, regular girls, hipsters, girls trying to find a boyfriend, pretty much anything across the board. Pretty much anything that is true for girls in general will be true online as well, so most of the time you’ll still have to put in the work.

Tinder is, in my now limited knowledge, still the best, especially if you don’t know Russian. I briefly installed it on a hangover Sunday a few weeks ago but was disappointed by how bad the quality is and deleted it again fast. 

Badoo and Mamba I barely ever used so I can’t comment a whole lot on them. I think it’s more “Russian” in the sense that English skills might be lower there and generally the girls are probably less-travelled and so forth. Quality seemed ok and I’ve heard of locals pulling girls from there for easy sex but I just could never be bothered to put in the effort.

Any other apps are not really a thing here. I tried the raunchy version of Tinder but it’s barely used by anyone. Bumble and that other app where you have to meet first are also not that widespread. 

Instagram is a BIG thing in Russia and I do not need to tell you how much Russian birds adore Instagram and taking photos of themselves. Not every girl will be a raging IG attention whore, far from it. A lot of them actually accept only people they know or have closed IGs. That said, they still have it and having a good IG makes your life definitely easier. Again, I can’t speak for stuff like pipelining but I nowadays let them add me on IG and work it from there. A good strategy if you have a strong IG is to go through the photos that are location-tagged with some of the clubs straight after the weekend. I get plenty of leads like that but most of the time don’t bother to really follow them up.

I barely use VK (Russian Facebook) so can’t speak for that either. Afaik it’s not really necessary and frankly, I’d consider it a bit dodgy to go looking for girls on there, especially if you have IG that is much more popular and easier to use.



Part 8 - Day Game



I’m not a big fan of day game, so I’m not gonna run you through what I think are the best ways of doing it. Also because there is no best way and all “techniques” and bullshit are just a big marketing smokeshow and a way of squaring the circle. Just go with the flow and you’ll be good.

That said, while day game per se is for me a poor use of my time, I have chatted up girls in all parts of the city. Since Moscow is huge and absolutely rammed with sexy girls, you can feel free to chat them up wherever you want. I’ve grabbed numbers on the metro, in the supermarket, on events, in shops, you name it. If you spot a sexy girl and feel the right energy, just go for it. I advise against “day game sessions”, not only because I find them lame but also because pickup culture isn’t new to Russia and you’re not the first guy to chat her up. I’ve spotted tons of Russians (and non-Russians) doing approaches and girls will sniff you out fast if you’re not genuine, especially in Moscow. With that in mind these are my three favourite spots during the day:

Gorky Park

My favourite spot in the city, especially in summer. Loads and loads of girls here. It’s also a huge recreational area that is connected to two other adjacent parks. In summer absolutely rammed with people and a fav among young Muscovites.

Kuznetsky Most Area

Tons of cafes here and almost no traffic, so people will be walking around and enjoying the sun in summer. Probably more a “let’s grab a coffee” angle that you’d play here.

Malaya Bronnaya ulitsa /Patriarshie Prudy

This is a very fancy and upscale part of town that has lots of cafes and bars as well. People living in this area are well-off, not the fake kind of well-off where they buy an iPhone and a Benz on credit but actually stuffed with money. So most girls you’ll see here are very sharky and you better you’re a game and a big bankroll ready in case you want to do damage. That said, you can spot genuine dime pieces in this area. 

Of course there’s always the option of roaming around malls or whatever the last hype is in the day game community. I’ve seen more than just a few stunners in Europeisky mall on Kievskaya. Again, simply a case of to each their own.

Moving on…



Part 9 - Nightlife



Now this is where it gets really interesting. Moscow has some of the finest nightlife (for MEN) in the world. Upsides include:

- No closing hours
- Most clubs don’t charge cover fee
- Bottle service is stupidly cheap (starts from 650$ min spend for 6 people at high-end clubs, way cheaper in others)
- Generally cheaper than other top tier cities
- Women are sexy as fuck
- You can go pretty much 24hours straight if you do nightclub, afterhours club, strip club
- You get to touch at the strip club (and you can fuck ‘em for money if that’s your thing)
- You can pull 


There’s some negatives as well though:

- Atmosphere is often quite poor, especially at the high-end places
- Sunday to Wednesday more dead than alive
- Girls will often throw on a huge show first before you get to swoop them…alcohol is the only way to speed things up (or other substances)
- Service culture is non-existent and staff are often incompetent
- Less variety in girls: no big deal if you like the slim model type, just warning you
- Music often sucks


Overall the positives by far outweigh the negatives for me and there are not a lot of weekends where I manage to stay in. Fear of missing out is just too strong. Below is a breakdown of nightlife venues according to type, rather than area. Makes more sense this way since chances are you will cab it a few times the same night anyway.


High-end spots



Siberia:

THE poshest place in Moscow at the moment. More of a restaurant than a club really but that is unfortunately often the case in Moscow. They have a thing for turning restaurants into clubs. Anyways, gents are on the older side but you’ll see drop-dead gorgeous women here. Fairly expensive with cocktails at 20 bucks apiece (not even good). Atmosphere is so-so, they always have some Russian pop singer coming on at 2 and after 3am the party is mostly over. If you speak in English girls might become interested and you can bounce them to another place. Generally not high-energy enough for me though. Very poor choice for bottle service because it’s significantly more expensive than any other place and not worth the money.

Duran Bar:

Better vibe here, it’s sort of a three-part venue. First part is an open bar with plenty of seating, second is another bar with a tiny dancefloor and tables for bottle service. Best for swooping is the outside terrace where people go to smoke. Generally good electronic music here and plenty of stunners. A good chunk of them are on the older side though (25+). Bit tricky for swooping because a lot of the girls are sharky and it starts emptying out after 4am. Try bouncing your girl(s) to another venue from here, no girl that wants to fuck ends her night here. They also have another room tucked away inside next to the bathrooms (with Russian music).

Oblaka:

The Thursday hotspot. Don’t like their interior because it is rammed with tables and you barely can move and dance but that’s Moscow for you. They do have a nice outside area though and a bar to chat up the women which are not occupied by table shenanigans. Lots of hotties here but not easy for swooping because there’s a lot of distractions and very little space to separate. 

Artel Bessonitsa:

Started warming up to this place more and more recently. Generally similar vibe to Duran Bar but slightly younger crowd and better music imo. Also a tad cheaper and their parties go until 7am in the morning (in summer at least). In general a lot of similarities with the closed Krysha Mira because the same promo/DJ team is working the club. Girls here are hot and come to party but it’s still the “look at me” crowd so you need to find a few that are down for action (=want to/have already had booze or coke). In winter they close the terrace part and I think the parties are not quite as good but I’ll be digging into it.

Valenok:

Another restaurant-turned-club. Very easy to enter though and prices are comparably low. More of an option to start the night and bounce at 2am-3am. Plenty of seriously attractive girls but not high-energy enough to swoop right then and there. Bounce ‘em with you if they’re cool or grab their contact.  Good electronic music here too.

Buddha Bar:

Not a fan of it at all. Spread out over two floors and with really nice interior but not the right vibe for swooping girls. Most people here will be sitting down or looking at the dance shows/go-go’s or whatever the heck they just have on. Dancefloor is tiny but still often abandoned. Girls here are very attractive but often not alone or not really down for it. Better to hit up Valenok just across the road.

Kvartira:

An afterhours spot not far away from Duran. Never been since it is supposedly an invitation-only thing that is very hard to get in to. My contact says with a table no problem though, so I’ll have to check it out sooner or later. Heard it’s full of drugs and attractive women, pretty much what I saw on IG as well. Sounds like a good combo for swooping.



The “regular”/party spots: these are the venues which aren’t high-end but somewhere in the middle, some posher, some less. Typically they feature more foreigners as well, especially the first few.



Icon:

Probably the best combo in terms of quality of girls and ease of swooping. Right next to Bessonitsa, girls are a bit younger here but most come to party. No outright stunners but a very good selection of 7s and 8s. They have two areas as well, one with more electronic music and elaborate shows with nude models, the other one has just regular club music. Also one of the best clubs for bottle service because you can create more physical separation here. High energy.

Jagger:

Very close to Duran Bar and a good amount of people migrate from the former after 3am. Like a high-end, better version of Coyote Ugly (there’s also an actual Coyote Ugly). Good energy in here and one of the most infamous hookup places in town. Used to be one of my go-to spots but nowadays the quality doesn’t do it for me anymore. Still plenty of cute girls here and people get shitfaced so odds of pulling are decent. Music is good if you come the first time but becomes very repetitive after that because they put on all kinds of styles and genres and never change their playlist. Average age about 25 I’d say.

Gipsy:

Used to be one of the best clubs in the city but nowadays it’s a teenager shitshow. They changed their concept from a hard door to being super soft, so plenty of young people in groups now. Big club with nice interior (think: palms and pools inside) but management fucked it up and almost all people >23 agree. Generally you can pull here but for my personal taste too many kids with shitty attitudes, poor outfits and too many groups: Plenty of tourists here as well. Music is still decent, they do nice mashup mixes in here. Generally high energy as well.

Rolling Stone:

Right next to Gipsy, pretty much the same concept only with an even younger crowd. People do get smashed here but it feels more like your graduation party than a proper nightclub. If you dress sharp like I do, you’ll feel out of place. Definitely good for younger cats but don’t bother if you’re 25+. I got an acquaintance who loves it there and he’s 23.

Klava Bar:

In the posh area on Malaya Bronnaya Ulitsa. A fav of the older Moscow crowd, tiny bar that is always rammed with people. You’ll like it if it’s your type of crowd (around 30, somewhat posh) and you don’t mind the terrible music and how crowded it is. Have a friend who’s friends with staff there but I generally hate it. You can pull here but you’ll again probably need to bounce your girls to another place.

Lookin Rooms:
Cheap version of Icon. Used to be got some time before I arrived here but now it’s kind of floating around in no man’s land. Have actually wondered why it is still open. Younger crowd here but not very attractive and funnily not even down for action. Their drinks are cheap though and you can get shitfaced here if you dig that. Actually a shame because they are in a very central location.

Chateau de Fantomas:

Only been once there a couple of weeks ago. For some reason I never knew of its existence though it is right next to Gipsy and has been around for ages. Very nice rooftop spot but unfortunately a bit hipsterish, which I don’t dig so much. I wonder whether it is happening in winter but I’ll be back to check it out because it was a bit too empty on that particular evening. They had good electronic music. 

Rock n Roll Bar:

Somewhere on the edge between a normal place and more of a “rougher” place. Rock-themed bar that attracts loads of people on the weekend and is opened seven days a week. Good, high energy here and cheap prices. Girls are not as stunning as in other places but overall still cute and out to be swooped. Was the first place where I banged a girl in a club toilet in Moscow Big Grin

Motel

Crossover between a bar and a club with a 60s American motel theme. Cool interior and chicks love it for photos on IG. Generally a bit lower energy and can be hit and miss but if it’s good, you can swoop from there. Closed at the moment, I think they will re-open but I’m not sure. Also close to Valenok and Buddha so you can visit all three in one go.

Mummiy Troll:

Just hit that one up last week for the first time. Seemed like a bit of a lower-energy version of Jagger. Had a few cute girls but wasn’t really that popping and I was not waiting it out, so the judges are still out on this.

Chips:

Was supposedly great some time but I find it just terrible. In summer they pack their terrace with tables, so it turns pretty much into a restaurant. In winter it is actually the same, only inside. Have never swooped here and never even received good receptions, so I don’t rate this place at all.

Rose Bar:

Yet another place with too many chairs and too little energy. Been only once or twice, I think they have no door policy at all. Bit on the posher, older end as far as I could tell.

Nightflight:

Infamous club that used to be amazing in the 90s (or so they say). Now it’s a P4P place and the girls aren’t even that good. Been only a few times for networking events and never actually out. Even for P4P I’d take a regular strip club or the internet over the offer there.

Garage:

An older club that has been around forever and serves two niches: Black Music on Wednesdays and Sundays and afterparties from Thursdays to Saturdays. Pretty much the only place with Black Music in Moscow and one of the few where you’ll see Black people. Can be good fun, haven’t been there a ton but it draws the usual afterhours crowd on these days and plenty of hotties on the others as well. Swooping is definitely possible here.

Courvoisier:

Restaurant-ish place with music but without a real dancefloor if I remember correctly. Women were too old for my taste there since most people were 30+. Was very full the only time I came but quality was not so impressive.

Casa Agave:

Mexican themed restaurant/bar that plays Latino music but also often annoying reggeaton. Girls are on the older end and plenty of “brown people” visit here (so anything from real Latinos over Africans to Caucasus). Think you can swoop here if it’s your style and your niche, just not really my thing.

Bar BQ

The one on Trubnaya is dead and a non-starter, the other one I've only been to on weekdays and it seemed very tame. Some guys said they rate it, so I can't really judge yet either way.

Baga Bar:

It’s been ages since I’ve been but if memory serves right, it’s similar to Mummiy Troll, so kind of like a poorer version of Jagger. A bit older crowd as well and with less energy and more lighting. Probably the reason why I haven’t been back.

Propaganda:

A Moscow institution that draws in a lot of foreigners as well. Electro club that is stupidly cheap and works 7 days a week. Probably the most “European” club in Moscow. Haven’t been there in forever, you can swoop but it’s more of a European atmosphere instead of the real Russian dynamic that probably a lot of guys are looking for in Moscow.



The “rougher” places: these are your cheap options, the kind of places that students, suburban Muscovites and “real Russians” visit.



Standard Bar:

Right next to Propaganda. Big bar with few people so not a lot to say about it. Think it was overpriced. Dip in if you don’t like Propaganda.

Bourbon Street:

The neighbor to the other side. It’s a pub and not a nightclub. Definitely overpriced. Actually only included it because I once almost pulled a 6 here to fuck her in the alley but then slipped and fell on my face. Got a nice scar above my eyebrow ever since. Never got the notch and never been back either.

Coyote Ugly:

I guess most people will know what this bar is about. Staff dances on the table, some of the female guests as well. Drinks are cheap and most people get shitfaced in here. Because it’s Moscow you’ll still have cute girls and as far as I’ve heard pulling isn’t all that difficult in here. Just not my type of scene.

Crazy Daisy:

Three bars with the same name. They do cheap drinks and the bar dancing thing too. Actually almost no difference to Coyote Ugly. Work 7 days a week so always an option as last resort.

Dream bar

Bar-ish place with a dancefloor that can be good for predrinks if you’re working with a tight budget. Usually packs the occasional cutie but nothing to write home about really.

Cuba Libre Bar:

Same like the above. For some reason the daygame squad that raids Moscow sometimes seems to like it but it is not my style. Don’t bring anything above a cute student here cause you’ll give off the wrong vibe.

Café Didu:

Same like the above with the only difference that they have nice decoration made out of Plasticine (is that how you call it?) that you can contribute too if you like. Actually don’t even have a dancefloor but they have cute go-go girls.

Tema Bar:

Must’ve been good some time before 2014 because it was recommended to me back then and it was pretty dead. Haven’t been in two years and wonder how they’re still working. Other than that, same like the three above.

Let’s rock bar:

Sort of the same like the above, only with a rock twist. If that’s your music then I strongly recommend Rock n Roll Bar, which is better in every single aspect.

Chesterfield:

Ladies night on Wednesdays here, which means you’ll get plenty of students and teenagers that are drinking for free. Totally outsized place but good for isolation if you want to drag away a girl from the dancefloor. On all other days I’d probably avoid because it is not all that much cheaper and the crowd is on the younger end here.

Papas:

Expat sanctuary that has some kind of special deal every night of the week. Always packs a few people and some half-cute girls. No fan of the poor music or the watered down drinks there but it’s on the shortlist for off-nights.



Afterhours spots: after 4am-5am people start leaving the clubs and either bounce home or go to afterhours spots. I already mentioned Kvartira and Garage, here’s some more.



Miks

Most popular afterhours place nowadays. Attracts mainstream people as well as those who didn’t know when to stop their nightclub days. Plenty of hot girls here and very hot go-go’s. Pulling is definitely possible here but you’ll want to either bring the girls with you or find some that are high on booze/coke/balloons (big thing in Moscow nowadays). Lasts until 10am or 12am, I think the latest I’ve ever been was 9am.

Akt

Relatively recently opened afterhours spot right next to Miks. It’s run by the same people and hence the club is pretty much exactly the same. They try to play an “Eyes Wide Shut” angle and create kind of a kinky atmosphere, however I found it to be thoroughly unimpressive. Came very late though when there were no more go-go’s and the club was mostly empty so I’ll have to try again. Seemed to have a few stunners that tagged themselves on IG.

Gazgolder:

Actually my favourite afterhours spot because they have the best electronic music. Most people are high off their asses and great vibe because it’s not as dark as in most other afterhours spots. They have two areas, one more for chatting at the bar, the other one for dancing and spacing out. Not sure how good it is for pulling because I was pretty much hammered every time I went. More of an underground-ish place but for rich people because their prices are high (=more attractive girls).

Purpur:

Only went once here on a Sunday out of all days. Seemed like a smaller, poor man’s version of Miks. My roommate at that time fucked some skank on the toilet, ha. I think it’s pretty buzzing on Fridays and Saturdays with your regular afterhours crowd.

There was another one we hit up one time on Mayakovskaya. I think it was a gay spot though and I can’t remember the name of it haha.



Bars: lastly I wanna cover a few spots that are more bars than clubs although you could probably say that about a bunch of places that I already mentioned. The distinction is often very hard to make in Moscow.



Strelka:

Big hipster bar in front of the Christ-the-Saviour church. They have the most beautiful summer terrace with great views. Good place for pre-party because it attracts a good mixture of people between hipsters and regular cute girls.

Ugolek:

Centrally located bar that is rammed on weekends. Decent spot to bring girls and start the night with them there. Think dimmed lights and electronic music.

Mendeleev:

Tucked away in a Chinese restaurant’s basement. Very similar to Ugolek. I still haven’t figured out whether it is better to come early or late here. Afaik some real power players also hang out there from time to time and apparently they also have a private section. Generally better than Ugolek for chatting up people at the bar.

Luch:

Slightly out of the center. Great interior and a high-end place with regular prices. On weekends plenty of hotties start their nights here. It used to be better though and might get hit even more by the closure of Soho which was very closeby.

Projektor:

Good dating spot and good for chatting up girls on the bar or the slightly lame dancefloor. Bit older crowd in here if memory serves correctly.

Timeout Bar:

Nicely located on the top of Hotel Peking in the city center. However, the two times I was there it was more empty than full. Supposedly it’s good in summer when the weather is great but then again, you have a dozen places which are better in that case.


Latinos:

Located around Miks, next to Hotel Ukraine. Been only twice, once it was dead, the other time full with hotties at tables with other dudes. So the judges are still out on it. They seemed to have good music though.

Bamboo Bar:

Totally inconvenient to reach because it’s where the skyscrapers in Moscow City are. That’s probably why it was so dead. It had very nice interior and it’s probably a good place to bring a high-end date and have some privacy but not for an actual night out. 


Places I haven’t covered:


The other datasheet mentioned a few places that I haven’t been to like Turandot, Kalina Bar, O2 Bar, Mercedes Bar… I could go on and on. Most of these places are to my knowledge either restaurants, which I don’t visit, or high-end bars, which might be worth checking out but from what I’ve heard through friends and contacts are not all that great.

Another spot is Soho Country Club, which is sort of a daytime version of the now closed Soho club and operates in summer. They have a pool where tons of hotties and rich Russian baller dudes hang out. Also proper face control at the entrance. It’s quite a bit out of the center, so make sure you get in, otherwise you’ll be kicking yourself for wasting so much time and energy to get there. Needless to say that you better have a damn good angle and VERY sharp game (+bankroll) if you wanna do any damage there. You’ll get laughed out of the establishment if you try to pull on game alone there.



Epilogue



That is really it. I haven't covered stuff like how to actually talk to and swoop Russians cause this is a whole topic in itself and warrants a completely new discussion. 

I also launched a site that I plan to extend to a full-time business. It revolves around Moscow nightlife for the moment but most probably I will also branch it out into the topic of Russian girls, since this seems like a formidable niche for a competent gent like me Wink I'm happy to answer questions, however I'm not sure how you guys handle this here. This post is first and foremost supposed to add value and not to promote myself. In case you are interested, you can find it here. If that's not ok, the link can of course be deleted.

  Soviet Tour 2017
Posted by: John Doe - 09-09-2017, 02:59 PM - Forum: Travel & Adventure - Replies (3)

Hey Nomads,

This is it. This is live and real now. After my "Blonde Tour" in 2016, I'm continuing my exploration of Europe. This time I go further East. I'm still a Northern-Eastern Europe guy. 

I want to thank EdmasterMotherRussia and Zolo for their feed-back in my "draft" thread, where I was considering the idea and asking for advice. I did not read properly your advice about visas, so now I got it: 5 days in Minsk, 3 days in St-Petersburg. I'm guessing Mass Tourism wins against Politics, right?

Departure: 14th September
Duration: About 30 days

My Plan:
1. Talllinn
2. St-Petersburg: 3 days
3. Riga
4. Vilnius
5. Minsk: 5 days max
6. Kiev
7. Odessa

Theme: Exploration of Europe

My Goals:
- Discovering Culture (Food, Customs, Architecture, Contemporary Art, History)
- Discovering Landscapes
- Meeting Cool people
- Meet Sexy women
- Use my mornings to learn German (starting a job in october in this language)

Lessons learned:
As I said in my previous thread, I put way too much emphasis on women in my last trip, which had the following consequences:
- I missed discovering places because I was going out so much, during the day I was dead tired
- I pissed away tons of money (in the thousands) for taking expensive AirBnBs in Gothenburg and Copenhagen in central places
- I was so attached to having sex with a swedish girl that I spent 2 weeks in Gothenburg whereas I could have seen the Nature in Sweden or Stockholm

So now, what I'll do differently:
- CHEAPER is the name of the game
- I'll go to Nature (which I love)
- I'll switch between Hostels and AirBnB
- So now, when I'll meet sexy women, I'll go to THEIR place: cheaper! 
- I'll take my reflex camera to take nice pictures, something I did not do in my last trips
- I have a much better self-esteem and confidence than last year, so I'm sure everything will go smoother

Tastes in Women
These days I'm obsessed with blondes and redheads. I love dark-raven hair as well. Big boobs, blue/green eyes, thin waist are a must. Long legs and tongue piercing are a plus. I'm more of a hair/face/boobs/legs guy. Personality-wise: open-minded, funny, spiritual, sexy, well-travelled, down-to-earth, artist, submissive.

Recently, (thanks porn on the Internet) I discovered that the beauty of russians and ukrainian women really is superior to many others. I did not like women that are too thin, but now I do. I'd trade a too-skinny girl with beautiful face and hair for a more fleshy one with less beautiful face and hair any day. 

My Favorite countries for women so far (very biased based on my subjective experiences): 

1. Poland
2. Netherlands 
3. Denmark/Sweden/Czech Republic

As always, any advice, feed-back and comments are welcome. I'll keep you guys updated, using this thread as a journal. I learned tons from you last year and from guys at Roosh's. 

Cheers!

John

I'm referencing Edmaster, MotherRussia and Zolo's advice below for the purpose of readability:

(08-08-2017, 12:49 AM)Edmaster Wrote: Hi man,

No visas needed if you are a EU citizen (except for Russia) but your passport is required (ID card alone is not enough at least in Ukraine and Moldova).
For Belarus you have a 5 visa free day to visit if you belong to this list of countries : Here 

Here is my opinion about the place i have personally visited :

Helsinki :
Pros :
People are very friendly.
Chicks are probably the easiest in Europe (i found them even easier than swedish and Norwegian) 
The city is very safe (almost no crime or corruption) 

Cons : 
The city is a bit isolated. 
Not many exciting activities. 


Tallinn :
Pros : 
Nice city with a beautiful old town.
The chicks are friendly and hot and relatively easy. 
Every nightclub are within 5 minutes walk so you can really easily bounce from one to another.

Cons : 
A bit small so you tend to come across the same people when you walk in the city.

Notes : i wrote about my experience here


Riga : 
Pros : 
Beautiful old town. 
Very cheap even in the best area of the city. 
Chicks are hot but less friendly than in Tallinn. 

Cons : 
Most of the bars and club in the old town are filled with foreigner.
Some people have reported some scams there (i didn't encounter any).


Vilnus : 
Pros :
No tourists.
Good amount of young girls and little competition. 
Nice old town. 

Cons : 
Very small so you can visit it in one day.


Kiev : (i am there when i am writing this message) 
Pros : 
Very feminine girls (model style) each time you look somewhere. Probably the most beautiful girls on the planet. 
Very cheap for a westerner. 

Cons : 
Low english level.
Food quality is low. 
Some people (the older generation mainly) tend to be disagreeable with foreigner (don't take personally).

Notes : stay at least 2 weeks there because Ukrainian chicks take time to wram up.


Chisinau : 
Pros : 
No tourists so you have a huge foreigner value. 
Girls are beautiful.
Most nightclubs are very close from each other in the center of the city.

Cons : 
it feels like traveling back to the 90's (old nokia, cars...)
The city is mostly a shithole and very isolated from other cities.
English is low. 

Note : take the buse to Tiraspol it's about 2 euros and a fun experience. Chicks are hot there too. 
I personally didn't encountered any problems there but some people have. 


I will write some data sheets in the future. 
If you need further informations on each of those cities PM me Smile


(08-21-2017, 02:26 AM)MotherRussia Wrote: Greetings,

For starters, what is the aim of your trip? Knowing this could be the difference between me suggesting Chisinau and recommending you to not go.

Secondly, you can actually visit Saint Petersburg visa free for 72 hours via Saint Peter Line Ferry from Tallinn or Helsinki. It sure is a little pricier than the $20-25 price tag of a bus, but if you don't plan on staying in SPb for more than 3 days, you could go this route. However, if you plan on going to SPb for less than 3 days then I recommend you not going at all.

I've been to every place on your list and everything is going to fall well short of your time in Saint Petersburg. Nothing else can compare in my honest opinion. From nightlife, women, and attractions I'd rank SPb number 1, by far. Weather and food are a big blow, however. 

Let me know when you plan on coming and I can meet up with you potentially.

I have to agree with much of what EdMaster wrote, with a few exceptions and additional notes.

Helsinki is terribly boring and super expensive. I went there with my girlfriend so I wasn't actively trying to pick up chicks, but I can tell you that it would be an expensive process.

Tallinn, hmm I always feel like I am the only one who holds this opinion, but I think the Estonian women are some of the least attractive in Europe. Two of the guys I know who lived there say they are fantastic, but theyre both uglier than those dogs with the smushed in face and one of the guys thinks his "5" rated GF is a dime.....so take that with a grain of salt.

But, don't fret. there are still a great bunch of Russian women there to choose from. It's an incredibly boring place. You can walk all of old town in 30 minutes and you won't encounter a single store or restaurant designed for locals....One of the most touristy, gimmicky places I've been too. Some of my friend who used to live there have moved onto other areas of Estonia and seem to be enjoying it much more now.

Riga - I like me some Riga!! You definitely get more of a Russian feel here than anywhere else in the baltics. Not only are the Russian women here hot, but the Latvian women aren't too bad either. Cool markets and beaches all around. Certainly a more lively and upbeat place compared to Vilnius or Tallinn. Old town at night is quite touristy, but still the nightlife is better here than in Helinski, Tallinn, or Vilnius.

Vilnius - Boring and I felt it was the least developed of the 3 Baltic capitals. Your time would be better spent visiting the college town of Kaunas. 

Kiev - This is where I disagree with EdMaster. Obviously, the food is terrible but the attractiveness of their women in Kiev does not even compare to that of Russias.  I've been in Kiev and Odessa for a total of 2 months on 2 occasions. Yes, women can take a little while to wrap up, but that doesn't go for every women. If they are taking too long, then just move on. I had a few days on our first meetings. Also, their English is going to be better than Russians, Belorussians, and Moldovans

Additionally, I think Ukrainians are probably on par with Polish girls. The quality and quanity of hot girls is simply much more in Russia compared to Ukraine. I'd say that Ukrainian chicks are behind  Russians, Belorussians, Romanians, and Moldovans. 

Chisinau was incredibly boring, however I was only there for a 2 nights awaiting my departure flight back to the U.S. I took a train from Odessa and no one checked my passport, which makes sense given that you go through Transnistria. Also, I didn't go there but many people who went to Tirasopol said it wasn't any more interesting than Chisinau. Honestly, the most popular thing in Chisinau was their McDonalds. The girls were incredible and everything was just stupidly cheap.

Minsk, you don't need a visa here if you FLY into Minsk and you can't fly from Russia, because of the Belorussian and Russian Union (no border checks and flights are considered domestic). So it might put it out of reach for you if you need to get a visa, though they did recently lower the price. Definitely worth a visit. It's said to be the most Stalinistic city. It's true what they say about it being very clean and the women are sensational. English is quite bad If you have time, definitely try to get Romania on your list. My time I spent in COnstanta/Mamaia Beach was fantastic

I don't know the aim of your trip, but SPb - Minsk - Odessa would be a much better time. Cutting out all the boring, useless places and getting right to the good stuff.

(09-05-2017, 09:09 PM)MotherRussia Wrote: I mean, if you like Dutch, Swedish, Czech women it's a very safe bet that you're going to like women the further east you go. Polish and Czechs are slavs. In the former Yugoslavia, they're slavs. Former USSR, they're Slavs. They're all going to have similar looks and personalities with little variance.

What do you mean by culture? What interests you the most...art? Music? Theatre? Vibrant history?

Saint Petersburg is home to the Mariinskiy Theatre and one of the best museums in the world (hermitage), Odessa has those awesome Potemekin (sp?) steps, famous opera house, and dangerous catacombs. Minsk is where you go when you want to see the ideal Stalinist architecture. Riga had some outdoor theatre stuff and a nice indoor theatre. Tallinn and Helsinki were just boring af. Kiev, compared to most other places in eastern europe was pretty miserable. 

If you want culture, then go to the former Yugoslavia. When I was in Bosnia and Herzegovina I was able to see some of the crazy Yugoslavia monuments (http://www.cracktwo.com/2011/04/25-aband...-look.html) as well as visit Tito's hidden bunker. Also, Sarajevo has an extremely rich history and is quite charming. So many places to go and see in the region...Mostar, Dubrovnik, Pltivice, Kravice, Kotor, Budva, Jajce...I can name many more....

Women are also amazing (much better than Dutch, better than Swedish, Czech, imo). They're like most slavs anywhere else in EE but they're a bit more reserved.

Hi, I know well Manila and I went to jakarta some years ago and I'd like to know the differences in the cost of living today in these two cities. I mean: to eat, to buy at supermarket, taxi, to eat at restaurants, clubs, bar, fun, etc. etc. For example if I spend US$ 1,000 in one month in Manila, how much money will I spend in Jakarta? I hope will reply guys who have recently been in both cities.

  Boracay
Posted by: tomtheman12 - 08-29-2017, 09:36 PM - Forum: Travel & Adventure - Replies (3)

I am thinking of going to Boracay in November? Is it a good months to go?  

I am thinking of staying in Station 1 as I believe it's more chilled out and laid back there.  If I go to Boracay I will be going by myself. I love the beach type holiday. How long should I stay in Boracay?  

I am thinking of moving out for 6 months to live Phuket or Boracay.  At the moment I am thinking of moving and living in Naiyang in Phuket as it's chilled out and  I know a few expats that live there and my cousin lives near by.

I have now given up alcohol smoking and drugs but still like sex and Rock and Roll. I also still like to hang out in a bar or beach bar and chat to the locals and holidaymakers and bar staff. But I am more into chilledout quieter bars than Ithan hanging out in loud clubs. But I still love to hang in watch live rock and roll bands.

Is it easy to make friends in Boracay? 

Is it easy to chat to local ladies in Boracay?

It would be nice to get a girlfriend in Boracay but if that's not possible then maybe just a holiday romance will do. Would Boracay be a nice place to live or is Phuket better.
 Any info would be great?

  New Year Destinations?
Posted by: MotherRussia - 08-23-2017, 03:53 AM - Forum: Travel & Adventure - Replies (3)

Coming from SPb. GF and her friends asked me to find them a place for NYE. Looking for two destinations in close proximity, like Vienna/Budapest, Istanbul/Thessaloniki type destinations. Fly to one, bus or train to another before flying home from the 2nd city. Some places we are considering are  Warsaw, Tbilisi, Baku, Sochi (none of those places are close to a 2nd city worthy of traveling to), Istanbul, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, and a slew of others. Maybe I've missed something. I've been to all of these places besides Baku and I'd like to go somewhere new and interesting. 

They're all Russians so they really hate the idea of going to Belarus, Poland, Moldova, Bulgaria, and Ukraine. 

Looking for places that have terrific nightlife and lively -- not that like bullshit in Germany and other western european places where everything closes at 8pm....we will be at each location for 4 or 5 days so somewhere that will leave us plenty of things to do and see.

I suppose it is probably going to end up being some combination of Prague/Budapest/Vienna even though Vienna is incredibly boring.

  My Kiev Experience - Avoid
Posted by: latinluva - 08-13-2017, 08:01 PM - Forum: Travel & Adventure - Replies (9)

Hope anyone will read this and not only get a reply from that scammer from Philippines. 

I stayed in Kiev for 9 days just to explore and find out if it were true that you could find a really good girl here. I'm a 34 year old white Mexican guy, look like Spanish, I have good looks.

I arrived to my Ukrainian friend's place, he showed me around the city, we went skying on his boat and I met his girlfriends, he told me he had 4 of them, I believe every man in Ukraine has many, they all seemed very kind and loving towards him, this got me excited about the place.

I immediately started getting tons of matches on Tinder and Badoo, I started speaking to the girls and they seemed to like me, suddenly, the first bad experience: One girl gives me her whatsapp then immediately proceeds to tell me "sex is 100 euros for 2 hours".

I finally decided to go out with one girl from Tinder, she looked cute in the pictures, on real life she was not hot at all but it was the same girl. I was surprised at how skillful she was at making herself look good in the pictures.

Then another date from Badoo, same story, except this girl was super needy and clingy, she started making plans to go to many places after minutes of meeting me, sending me messages on facebook, wanting to nurse me!, etc. I basically told her I was going to Kharkiv for the weekend in order to get rid of her.

Then I figured that other cute girls who had been very nice to me on badoo or tinder seem to be the same type: not good looking girls with really skillful pictures, sometimes, you couldn't see their bodies very well, I started to avoid them.

However, the ones that looked like models seemed to be escorts. I aimed for the ones that looked like girls next door and we had good conversations but they didnt wan't to meet me, it seemed they knew I was just here for vacation and they were looking for something serious, I told them I was too and that supposedly I was going to be coming back and staying for months but to no avail.

The club scene: Clubs had 50% girls and 50% guys, it wasn't so bad, problem was that all the girls that were looking for guys seemed to be prostitutes, other girls didn't speak English and the dynamic was weird, one of them was dancing with me and things seemed alright, then she left me and started dancing with my Italian friend, I left for that night and I asked my Italian friend and he told me the girl left and asked him for 2000 U for her taxi.

My Spanish guy was the one who got the worst part, he is older, 44, he got scammed all the time, the girls would take him to stores, buy stuff and tell him they forgot the wallet, stupidly enough he paid for them, he never saw them again.

It seems to me there are 3 types of women in Ukraine:
-50% are prostitutes
- 20% are girls who are not hot enough and DO want to get a foreign boyfriend, but they are super needy and not attractive
-30% are normal girls who are good looking, however, they all seem to have boyfriends, distrust foreigners and if you end up with them then you are one out of many boyfriends, you might be the one they use for money, and yes, even good girls ask for money. My friend says that his 21 year old girlfriend asks him for money all the time, it is normal.

So there you go, I see Kiev as similar to Sophia which was even worst: every girl was whoring somehow in Sophia, they all belonged to love triangles either married or with boyfriend or child and banging everyone.

My conclusion is that Eastern Europe is a shithole. Now, apart from the women situation, let me tell you that Ukrainians are very kind friendly, warm people, women who have lived outside of Ukraine for a long time are the best, however, they are all taken.
It seems everybody has home and food in Ukraine but it is like a big ghetto, everybody is sort of poor.

My 2 cents.
