Do you want to know how much Moscow has changed over the last two decades? Head straight to the city’s prime location hot-spot and one of the most luxurious addresses of the city.
Ritz-Carlton’s award-winning rooftop bar O2 Lounge is located on the hotel’s 12th storey. It has the essence of all that the city has to offer. That Moscow is a mix of the old and new, the modern and the ancient, is visible in all corners. The interiors are luxe. But you have a bit of Russia in all things at the lounge.
It has a sushi bar with sushi prepared using fish flown all the way from Japan’s Tsukiji market! The sushi lounge also has oysters and lobsters. Alternatively, enjoy an afternoon smoke from…hold your breath – hookah pipes made in Czech Republic, from Bohemian Crystal.
Moscow is no longer the communist regime flagship with its soberness, but an economic epicenter. A look at the futuristic glass dome with floor to ceiling system at 02 Lounge signifies the new-age design and couture that the city has embraced.
The lounge also has prism windows, amazing views of the famous St Basil’s Cathedral, Kremlin, Spasskaya tower and Red Square. Or sip those heady cocktails. Demonstration of opening a champagne bottle the old Russian way using a saber is integral.
