This chain of friendly “neighborhood bars” is a great place for catching up with friends over a drink, for parties with DJs or for watching your favorite sports team play. And as soon as Muscovites started understanding cocktail culture, the guys behind the bar started offering some great choices. On Saturdays, guests at the Darling on Mayakovskaya can take part in a cocktail tasting and those who guess the ingredients, get a gift voucher for a dinner at any of the Darling’s. The bar on Paveletskaya has free stand-up comedy on Saturdays and Sundays and quizzes and trivia night on Novokuznetskaya on Sundays and Mondays. On Friday and Saturday nights, of course, all Darling’s have DJ parties until the wee hours. There are many other events and thematic nights that take place around the Darling’s, so pop in any day and you’re likely to catch something!
