I had promised a second part of my Moscow trip with a less pastel look after the first post. Strelka is an area that has become quite cool in recent times in the urban landscape with many creative work spaces, offices, galleries, restaurants and clubs. The look is much more industrial with brick buildings, loads of impressive external piping and hidden back yards (and doors I assume).
Strelka starts at the right side of the Moskva river and this café of the same name must be just perfect when the weather is right.
Can you spot that atelier on top? Love this pic!
Coolest club ever with the perfect car in front, unfortunately the bodyguards were not ready to let me in at 6pm :-) and would not give me a card or name of the place. Communication has been a bit challenging on the streets.
Some shy colour pops and a cool chalk board menu on the outside. Not a bad idea, isn’t it?
Wondering if the whole facade is meant to be an art work or just a remnant from previous times.
Finally I can credit a place! Everything is still written in Cyrillic in Moscow with a few exceptions. Wait to take the subway and you see what I mean… So, this is WT4, a pretty cool club, art gallery and restaurant where I had dinner one night.
I love a city with contrasts! You don’t get to see too much with a couple of days off which is a good thing. I probably have to go back! Soon.
So, which of the two parts of Moscow you think is worth a trip?
