The city is crowded and bustling with life in the busy evenings. Each street has lots of vibrant energy with a number of bars and restaurants catering to tourists. With a cosmopolitan vibe, the locals indulge in music and the food options are unlimited. The nightlife in clubs usually starts after 11 p.m and is very crowded during the weekends or on special occasions like national holidays or during Christmas. The clubs are mainly located in the central part of the city and taxis can be used for commuting. Google about the nightlife and you are bombarded with several websites linking you to some unique and out of this world concept pubs and bars. The people in Moscow love their drinks stiff and slightly on the sour side so it's better to ask for ingredients before you go exploring new drinks. Pub hopping is a weekly custom and the locals get dressed in their best and wind down to hard rock music and food.
