Walking in, the most striking thing about the Royal Arbat club in Moscow is the colour. It is one of the most beautiful, and at once irreverent, clubs in all of the city. The gleaming pinks, blues, and oranges make you feel like you've stepped into a work of art, a sophisticated pop art painting you can feel and touch. Everything is designed to reflect these colours, from the upholstered walls to the snakeskin lounge seats. The stunning glowing displays of beautiful models dancing are amazing and really illuminate the room, letting you know this is a fun and sexy club.
The booths are incredibly plush and comfortable, and the layout encourages you to mingle and talk at your table, which is not entirely normal in Russia, a country where people tend to be a bit less openly social than the average European. The venue actually caters directly to both tourists and more outgoing Russians, advertising itself as a warm and social space through its music, colours, and layout. This is somewhere you come when you want to meet people.
There is a full bar, with all the alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks your heart could desire, as well as a pleasant blend of conventional, local, and original cocktails, depending on how adventurous you are feeling. Bottle service is not too expensive for a luxury venue, and will definitely make your night run much smoother. If you are having a hard time getting in, or you want to make sure you get in quickly and get treated with respect, ordering bottle service is the way to go about it. There are a selection of high quality bottles to choose from, and you will not be disappointed.
There is not a lot of space for dancing out in the open, but there is enough that if you feel like dancing you will be able to. The focus here seems to be more on talking, meeting new people, and maybe having a bit of a fun dance as the night progresses, rather than on the actual dancing for its own sake. If you want a big place where you can dance the night away, you may need another venue.
This club is open for twelve solid hours every night, except Saturday when it's open for fourteen hours. If you want a place where you can do it all and have it all, all night long, this is the right venue for you. Stop by after dinner for a drink and a chat, build up towards partying all night long, and keep going until dawn breaks and it's time for your morning coffee. This is actually the sort of venue that inspires such committed partying, too, as you will feel completely immersed in its beautiful atmosphere.
