Lucky Izakaya Bar

A Japanese izakaya at Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street, slightly adapted to the habits of Moscow residents. This is an everyday gastropub with national street food, the provenance of brand chef Glen Ballis, and with saké of all kinds — the bar is managed by Maxim Gorelik. If you are searching for a quick drink, look for a place at the no-frills bar counter, one of city’s coziest. If you want to spend the evening here, book a table at the panoramic window and quietly swoon over a shot glass or two. Premium saké must be drunk cold, so if you are used to the image of warm vodka with a sweet aroma, forget it and obey the bartender.
