Description: Mendeleev Bar is made in the best New York secret bars traditions. Bar is hidden into a very historic area of Moscow, under Petrovka street in downtown. Entrance which happens to be velvet curtain is located in the Chinese fast food restaurant Lucky Noodles.The bar is a cocktail bar, so a very first thing to do, after passing strict face control, is to try and assess the fascinating work of the local mixologists, who are most of the specialist in absinthe and cocktails based on absinthe. Excellent bar menu is accompanied by light, tasty and quick to prepare Pan-Asian cuisine from Momu - Chef next door restaurant "Roni".From Monday to Wednesday we have live piano and every Thursday we arrange live jazz performances. Weekdays - live piano evenings and live jazz concerts. Weekends - cool deep techno and deep house djs. If you are looking for a cozy atmosphere - Mendeleev Bar is what you need.

A very cosy place to have a nice drink, cocktail or a glass of wine. Nice music and great service.
Look out for it, since there's no sign on the street level. Go into the noodle bar and take the steps on your right.

What can i say. To get into it you must first enter a Chinese Takeaway called Lucky Noodles and down the side is a doorman who stands at a closed door, deciding whether you come in or not.

Once in, very funky bar with very nice bar staff who speak good English. They made us a free cocktail. Expensive place but well worth a visit. Just for the experience of trying to get in.

The opening scene in Blade comes to mind.

We came to the bar through the "Lucky Noodles Bar", turned right, were allowed through the curtain and downstairs. Down there we found a great atmosphere...dark but stylish, chique furniture and since all the tables were supposedly reserved we seated ourselves at the bar. In the end this was the best decision of the night because that way we could watch these very young bar tenders doing their magic with each and every cocktail they mixed. I have never seen such passion and knowledge in bar tenders and the cocktails we had all were just delicious and beautiful. A must visit in Moscow!!!

You will love it if you’ll find it! =)

Totally stunning mood (worth getting a table (get a bottle of wine – that will make it)), great décor, nice crowd and totally best cocktails in Moscow. The selection is outstanding (got all the rare beasts there), quality is superb! The service was very good for Friday night – could not complain at all. Nice music add us to the list =)

Not cheap at all, worth every penny for sure!

Try to come before 10 to get in...

Underground! Underground!

Cool Bar, off Petrovka Boulevard and access through a tiny noodle Cafe and it takes a little bit of connection to know about the underworld.

New York has come to Moscow.

Mysterious but cool
