What is the smell of success and money? Cigars and jazz, carnival dancers and excellent wine? The Grand Havana Room smelt of success at its opening in December, and as a Christmas/New Year present to the wealthiest and most powerful businessmen in Moscow, the exclusive Elite International Business Club finally came to Russia. It is the newest member in the family of Grand Havana Rooms in all the expensive cities of the world and features the finest dining and entertainment, plus great wines and spirits, conference rooms, screening rooms and the largest humidor room in Europe, with 400 private boxes for members. Membership is by invitation only and gives the members a chance to shake hands with Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Ben Affleck, Richard Parsons or even California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. All are members, and the only thing to do is to catch them when they are visiting the new Grand Havana Room in Moscow.
