Noor on the face of it appears to be just your average cafe - bright yellow walls and tiled floors give a vague Spanish feeling, while apparently the name is Arabic for light. In fact of an evening this classy bar is the second home of much of Moscow's wealthier art crowd. Don't be surprised to see hipsters in fluorescent jackets hanging out with suited guys who've just stepped out of a Mercedes -the full strata of the city's successful set are resident here. A big draw for many are the drinks and the lack of loud club music. Noor specialises in malt whiskies and the barmen who make their imaginative cocktails to order are well-loved by their patrons.
