When you order a cocktail at Free-Bar, you also get a free glass of fun and escapism. This is an institution that successfully balances on the intersection between democratic prices, a relaxed atmosphere and good service. These ingredients are well marinated in an extensive alcohol menu. Unlike Dmitry Sokolov’s other institutions, Free-Bar is not distinguished by a special concept: no fire shows on the bar, no Latin parties, no dancing on the tables. Free-Bar successfully copes with its role as high-quality, low-cost facilities in the city center, the kind Europe is famous for, and which Moscow is still sorely lacking. This is already a very passable concept.
Sokolov’s alcohol policy is always of high standard and easy on the wallet. In this case, the alcohol history is combined with geography. Under the headline “Old World” are compiled drinks from Europe. True, the Mexican Margarita somehow found its way in here, but that doesn’t spoil anything. Further in the cocktail menu is “New World,” with the unfamiliar names of cocktails from the United States (Bent Nail, Mint Julep, Alabama Slammer) a positive gift for fans of experimentation. For conservatives there is a full set of classics from the Manhattan to the Pina Colada. An unexpected geographic excursion is provided by the Indian mango lassi, a great choice for those who are behind the wheel. And trying to imagine the taste of the alcohol-free Crow’s Nest (cranberry juice, sour mix, Passion Syrup, Bitter Lemon) is no less diverting than trying to choose a drink from the impressive list of cocktails in the Exotic Fun section, which presents a mix of well-known and signature drinks. By the way, there are several sections on the menu with the prefix “Fun”: Tini, Crazy, After Dinner and Shot. Hot alcoholic mixtures are presented in the chapter “Drink Up and Warm Up.” Yes, Free-Bar is truly a place for free-thinking people with a good imagination and an excellent mood: the fun component in this bar is very important.
Before you visit the bar, it is worth looking at the web site to check the latest updates: Like other establishments run by Dmitry Sokolov, Free-Bar boasts a variety of special offers and competitions. One of the most “killer” proposals is a sets of five shots for 600 rubles. Warning: This generosity is displayed only on weekdays!
