The StandarD is an up-to-date cafÃ©-bar with a thoroughly American feel to it in Kitai Gorod, although once inside, you could be in Manhatten. Large black and white pictures of American icons adorn the walls. The bar people smile and speak English. Food is good and not too expensive. The sound system is fantastic and there are live bands most nights. Check: http://thestandardmoscow.ru/ for updated program.
A few comments from the many visitors at the opening night:
âHi, Iâm Matt. Everyone and their dog is here, itâs like The Tardis, they have managed to get half of Moscow into the bar.â
âMy nameâs Buda, I came from Hungary specially for the opening. As far as I know, this place has the best burger in town. I really like it here tonight the only problem is that all the seats are reserved. The beer is lovely, I like it.â
âIâm Gus, life is a gas, come and enjoy it.â Peter from Germany
âIâm Sunil, if I find a place that looks after you properly, I always come back.â
