Perfect for short people with an inferiority complex, the Sky Lounge takes you up 22 floors to the top of the Academy of Sciences building on Gargarin Square, from where you can look down upon the whole of Moscow. Unsurprisingly the views are breath-taking, and with the venue undergoing a major revamp in 2005 the interior is pretty damn cool too. So take the elevator and suavely prop up the bar with a cocktail, or else sit down on the terrace for some sophisticated Asian and French cuisine. The prices are sky-high, but come on - what were you expecting?

I came back, and the food was litteraly amazing. But the price sky rocketed.
Service fair but food not very good and cold!
£100 plus per person for lunch in a run of the mill eating house is extreme and not worth it! Great view but over priced in the extreme and poor service and menu.
If you're Moscow on business (or pleasure?), and only have got a couple of hours to spare, chill at the Sky Lounge, the best there is, to get the feel of the best place in the world)
The sky lounge is amazing and I always see Natasha and Agie there from Mexx. Maybe they should be doing some work!!
This is a place where you definitely go for the view and atmosphere. From culinary perspective the fare doesn't match the asking price, but the well-rounded menu gives you an opportunity to enjoy both sushi and traditional Russian stroganoff.
I was visiting Sky Lounge on March 22nd 2007.
The location and the building is fantastic, the view breath-taking and it is a cool hang-out. But service was very slow and the personnel hardly spoke any other language but Russian. Thank heaven we had some Russian friends with us that could translate and explain!
The food was, however, exquisite when it finally arrived at our table and that combined with the cool atmosphere and great view of Moscow, made it a memorable evenening for us.
I definitely recommend a visit there when you're in Moscow, but allow plenty of time if you intend to eat!
