Powerhouse Moscow

Powerhouse – For chilling and dancing frantically

Powerhouse lives true to its name. One of my favorite hangouts, it has amazing ambiance. The wonderful relaxing effect of sinking in an armchair sipping a cocktail – usually something whisky-based – can only be compared to Savasana.

There is always something going on – a party, a jazz session, a movie screening and a lecture, a standup show or a live band. They also have theater nights, when they lend the stage for play readings, a performance or a show. If you speak Russian, check it out; if not, come for a jazz jam or a gig – thankfully, music doesn’t need translation. Sometimes on the weekends, Powerhouse will also host a brunch or a market for vinyl, clothes, or food.

As for food, they have a tempting menu, but I somehow never tried anything – this may or may not be connected to the fact that Jagannath (check the article ‘Jagannath – Indian delight‘) is located within a 5-minute walk. Anyway, they serve real food, hearty and filling, not the usual bar stuff. It’s nice to know that they won’t let you starve,¬†especially if¬†you come at noon for a market, stay for a lecture, then find yourself dancing to some crazy DJ set after midnight.
