Light dizziness, windows, Moscow, windows, blurry vision of roads, rivers and again windows, windows…
City Space is fascinating and terrific. There is no other Moscow bar that has climbed such heights. The Swissotel skyscraper has become a Moscow “celebrity” for great views of Russian capital. The Garden Ring Road mysteriously fades in the capital mist, towers and high buildings shoot through clouds; all seems tiny and unimportant from City Space altitude. It is worth a visit just to experience the feeling of becoming a bird, a cosmonaut and simply a human with wings. Cocktails are expensive but do not impress. Caipirinja is too sour, and mahito is too sweet. Appetizer’s portions are small and not essential. Prices bite and there is no balance between quality, non gourmet servings and sky rocket prices. Keep in mind that here you pay for the view and to some extension it’s worth it.
