DescriptionMeet your local guide before heading to Myasnitskava Street in Moscow's hippest nightlife district. Start with a visit to a bar that’s well known for its extensive selection of quality craft beers, many of which are brewed locally by the owner. Pair your beer with some traditional Russian snacks. From here you'll pass by a beautiful old building in the Chinoiserie style that was transformed into an attractive tea shop a number of years ago. Here your guide will talk to you about the unique Russian tea drinking culture. Your next stop is Odessa, a charming and friendly restaurant named after a famously cosmopolitan city by the Black Sea. Here enjoy very typical zakuska appetisers, which pair well with vodka, as well as a variety of pickled tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic and cabbage. Then try one of Russia's favourite snacks, smoked lard (pork fat), which may sound unappetising but is surprisingly delicious. Your guide will cover vodka etiquette with you before pairing a few shots with the food. Then stroll down the ‘crooked-knee’ street, passing by a spectacular mansion, the first privately owned public library in Moscow. Further along walk through Lubyanka square, home of the ex-KGB headquarters and the source of scintillating gossip and Cold War anecdotes. End the tour in the mysterious setting of a secret service themed bar. Here enjoy another traditional Russian drink, nastoika, which is a berry (or sometimes vegetable) infused alcoholic beverage. To enjoy it most pair it with fried suluguni, a white Georgian cheese that makes for a superb and traditional Russian appetiser.
