    Moscow dive bars

    Hello all!
    I have just moved to Moscow, although I had been a regular visitor in the past - it now seems that all the trashy dive bars I used to frequent are closed! (i.e. Real McCoy's) and exile no longer publishes - hence I am lost! Any suggestions for the old-style 'democratic' bars?

    Kamchatka is rather democratic, just behind ЦУМ. http://novikovgroup.ru/restaurants/kamchatka/

    John Bull pubs are not bad, both at m. Smolenskaya and 1905 g. http://www.rmcom.ru/restaurants
    Their Molly Gwynn's are not bad too.

    "16 tonn" bar (sometimes with a live music http://www.16tons.ru/ ) and Samolet bowling center http://samolet-bouling.ru/ bar, both again near 1905 g.

    Durdin beer restaurant at Leningradka (m. Sokol) looked democratic, though it seems to me they've relocated http://www.realbeercard.ru/.

    Vobla beer restaurants http://www.vobla.ru/kontakty

    Kruzhka (Кружка) beer halls are around the city, just look at Yandex maps or see here http://kruzhka.ru/addresses/

    16 Tonnes a dive bar, Andy? Expensive + face control. Pffft.

    I think Russia doesn't do 'bars' so much? Most of them are cafe-ish?

    My all time favorite divey place was the cafe (crap, forgot the name - did it have a name?) in the alley way behind the Ritz Hotel. I think it is still there. Soviet decor stuff, cheap beer and good food, rollicking great place. Dirt cheap.

    Left at La Katina on Tverskaya, left into the first alleyway, a few paces forward then down a few stairs. Best place in Moscow. There may not even be a sign. Go look for it.

    No expats, nevah.

    no more Chesterfield/ Boar House,no more Hungry Duck. Those were the times.
    While no -dive bar-, but always good for tons of -pick up- the Angara restaurant is also gone.
    To bad....
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    http://killfish.ru/ not really 'democratic' more 'anarchic'. Interesting concept- introduce enough friends and eventually you can drink for free!
