Directions to Mart cafe
The café 'MART' ('March' in Russian) represents a fusion of various spaces for intelligent leisure. Café, exhibition space, wine market, music club and green-house are gathered under one roof. The café opened on 8 of July, 2010, at the lower level of Moscow Museum of Modern Arts on Petrovka Street, in the historical mansion of architect Matvey Kazakov. Thanks to multilevel space and specific architecture, the café hosts different kinds of events: parties for kids on Sundays, Jazz Thursdays, dances on weekends, instrumental music evenings, art exhibitions. The café consists of three halls: semi-dark bar, where you can have a cocktail and rest after busy day; exhibition hall, which is transformed to dance club on weekend nights; and hall with domes and piano, which create the atmosphere of relax and peace.
The green-house of Mart is an exceptional place - a large covered terrace at the yard of the Museum of Modern Arts. Concerts, kids' parties, literature presentations, and other events are arranged here. The terrace with white marquees is open the year around, and even in winter, surrounded with lots of flowers, wrapped with blankets, sipping warming cocktails and listening to live music, you will feel comfort and joy. The music program in Mart is quite various: each Tuesday night, pianist Vladimir Konovalov plays popular European and retro melodies; each Saturday night, you're welcome to enjoy French classic accordion, played by Oleg Bakumshtein. Many talented artists, such as Alexandra Mitlyanskaya, Mariya Arendt, Konstantin Totibadze, Tatyana Vezel-Ignatova, exhibit their works here. The project 'Studio of Katya Gerdt', a design bureau and show-room of furniture and interior accessories from Province and Europe, takes place in Mart as well.
