Club Review June 2, 2008
Clubbing Adventures Through Time
The gay, the indie and the romantic By Dmitriy Babooshka Browse author
Page 2 of 2

Recently I have read on the internet that when world sea level rises by 100 meters Moscow becomes a real tropical resort. Lebedinoye Ozero catches these future trends well. The place looks as if it is taken from jungles of Vietnam with dark wooden terraces around the pond surrounded by lianas. Since we don't yet have a tropical climate and not even warm weather, the place was half empty. The other half of the club was filled with people who were tending to sit next to each other as close as possible to get warm. Although, the spacious stage, swimming pool, exotic tiki bar and Thai masseurs make this club a perfect spot to chill during the hot summer nights. I have no idea about the selection concerts here but I'm sure it won't be similar to Incognito. The colonial style of the club made it very dark, in terms of lighting, making it hard to see your female prey very well. But that might not be so bad, less light can bring more surprises (and less disappointments).

I was sipping my whisky (250 rubles for Jameson) when I suddenly felt something under my feet. When I saw it was an expensive Prada wallet my heart started beating hard. Unfortunately it had only 420 rubles, cheap VISA Electron card and a lot of discount coupons. Also, it had many business cards with the title as a "make-up specialist" of one of the leading TV channels. Luckily the card had her mobile phone so I was just five minutes away from free whiskey and endless "thank you" pleasing my ears.

We spent a hour talking to each other about the indie music scene, the TV and film industry and I felt like I had a real introduction with a nice-looking girl (can you imagine an ugly make-up specialist?). Then I decided to go with my favorite "romantic stranger" strategy and proposed to take a night walk in the park.

It is not a long walk to cross Gorky Park, may be about 20 minutes. But when the park is completely empty, the full moon out and you're walking hand-in-hand with your new lady friend along the Moscow river listening to birds singing and observing the sunrise, you realize you had one hell of a lucky night. Especially when your apartment is right across the park.
