Description: Propaganda is local’s favorite place to eat, to have a drink or to dance till early morning. It’s friendly and inviting. Located in the heart of Moscow city centre, it first opened its doors in 1997. As a cafe, it has developed its unique reputation through a friendly service, delicious food, reasonable prices and a warm feel. As one of the longest-running clubs in Moscow, Propaganda has set a new level in the city nightlife. But mostly it’s a place where everyone feels welcome.

We rocked up to Propaganda at around 2am at the end of a long night. We checked our coats in the cloak room which was being run by a young guy, who seemed to be under the supervision of this barely conscious, leathery old blonde woman, who sat leant against the wall. When it was time to leave I went... More

We went back to this restaurant after a great experience the previous year. The salmon, salads, and smoothies were very good.

Went to Propaganda club on a Friday night. The club itself is down in a basement and at 11pm we were not charged any admission. They were only just clearing the tables from the dance floor as we arrived. The bar prices were not too bad for Moscow although they did not have any diet coke. The sound system was... More

Went to propaganda for lunch with friends. The bean soup and borscht were very good. My chicken sandwich on homemade focaccia was good but uninteresting. Wide range of smoothies with original ingredients (e.g. espresso,cherry, and yogurt). Lunch was about 750 rubles per person ($21 USD).

In town on business, stumbled upon this place for lunch. Had a steak with pepper sauce and a fresh-squeezed juice. The food was excellent. Went back the next day.

Very tasty meal serves here. Not so many things to choose from. It can seem quite crowdly. But the meal is very good. Not expensive at all. Just 3-4 sorts of beer unfortunately. If there's a line to have a table at the evening you will be meet by an administrator who advises approximate time to the next available table.... More

We visited propaganda on a rainy Saturday afternoon around 5pm the place was buzzing with lots of young people eating, drinking and smoking it had a great atmosphere, totally relaxed yet vibrant. We ate decent food although nothing to rave about. I had a chicken Caesar salad that was overdressed with oil, some flat bread with cheese and a beer.... More

I visited here with my husband and we had a great time. It wasnt hard to find (although when we did get to the right address there didnt seem to be any obvious signs of a restaurant, we thought we were walking into a random office building or something!). Once inside though it was great - there are lots of... More

Restaurant/dance club in Kitay Gorad area in Moscow. We were seated with no reservation but had to be out by 8 to make room on the dance floor. Food was good and an nice break from Russian and Georgian cuisine. Definitely off of the beaten track, making it very enjoyable. A bit smoky, but that's Russia. Service was good. Would... More
