You have come to the right city! One of the best things about Moscow is the round-the-clock availability of alcohol the many places you can eat, play, exercise and have fun all night long. First of all, no need to worry about a health problem in the middle of the night. Note which pharmacy near you has a 24 in a circle; that means it’s open 24/7. Once you take care of your headache: go shopping. If you’re tired of eating out, find a Azbuka Vkusa, Magnolia, Perekryostok or even Auchan store that is open around the clock, not to mention hundreds of smaller mom-and-pop shops. Run out of reading materials at 4 a.m.? Dash over to Respublika at 10 Ist Tverskaya-Yamskaya Ulitsa (between metros Belorusskaya and Mayakovskaya) for a book, funny mug, or Moleskin notebook. Can’t get to sleep because of stress? Check out and go to one of these Thai spas for a massage. Can’t stand your hair another minute? Call and make an appointment at one of Moscow’s hundreds of all-night beauty salons, like Maki at If you have a spur-of-the-moment need for a swim, head over to the SWIM club at 3 Stolyarkny Pereulok, Bldg. 2, metro Ulitsa 1905 goda ( Hungry after all that running around, working out, and shopping? Well, there are hundreds of places to get a bite to eat. We are partial to Shokoladnitsa ( and of course, the Starlite Diner ( because there’s nothing like sitting in a booth with a cup of Joe, watching the sun rise over the city.
