Gioms Moscow

Gioms – If I were Dutch I would have felt like home

I speak Dutch and Moscow doesn’t have that many places for local communities or they are of ex-USSR nations. I was sure about it but was mistaken when I went to a book presentation in Gioms, a lovely place made by Dutch expats featuring the cuisine of Benelux countries. 

The thing that I like is that the spot is designed like a home – small bar, pictures of the Netherlands on the walls, huge flag of the Feyenoord football tram – I really want to see this place on a Friday evening when people have gathered to party. 

The district is very special too – the area between busy Belorusskaya metro and crowded Novoslobodskaya metro is full of red brick building of the early 20th century. It’s the centre of the city, but it’s quiet, it’s less arrogant and it still has the atmosphere of a district where people really live their regular lives. 

So if you miss Europeans in Moscow or would love to try some new cuisine, it’s a place to go or at least to pass the street by and then to go in for a black coffee.
