WHAT TO DRINK: Moscow Sling at the O2 Lounge.
A $20 cocktail is a $20 cocktail. The O2 Lounge is exactly what you’d expect from a place at its price point, but you don’t come to the rooftop bar at a Ritz-Carlton for what’s on the menu. You come here for the incomparable views of the Kremlin, and of the rest of Moscow’s city skyscape. At night, the city’s most stunning buildings are dramatically lit—the work of lighting designers that showcase Moscow’s singular architectural history. And a five-star venue does indeed serve five-star drinks: don’t miss our favorite in-house creation, the Moscow Sling.
