Noor Electro

After-theater cocktails

Noor has recently been redecorated, expanded and renamed Noor Electro. “Electro” stands for the avant-garde Electro Theater that shares the same building with Noor. The cocktails are legendary and it's always crowded on the weekend. In the warm season Noor opens a cute courtyard between the buildings with a few tables and chairs and some green plants.

Powerhouse 

19th-century mansion with courtyard 

This bar and club, located in a mid-19th-century wooden mansion, is mostly famous for funk and hip-hop nights. The food by up-and-coming chef Kim Yerunov is more than just pub grub, and there's a separate whisky tasting bar for connoisseurs. When the weather is warm, Powerhouse opens its huge courtyard with a summer terrace, where markets and festivals are organized on a regular basis.

When a park becomes courtyard

32.05 is one of Moscow's most popular bars with a patio. Try any of the classic cocktails (from 380 rubles) and chill amongst the greenery, while gazing at the visitors to the Hermitage Garden, one of Moscow's best parks. The menu is rather innovative — be sure to try Beef Stroganoff with mashed potatoes squeezed into a drinking glass.

Entuziast 

Berlin-style bar

Nestled in one of the courtyards on the pedestrian street Stoleshnikov Pereulok, Entuziast is a bar and motorbike repair shop. When the weather is warm, the bar spills into expansive courtyard which fills up with people drinking beer and cider (the only alcohol served at Entuziast) or doing a barbecue. The scene would not be out of place in Berlin's trendier neighborhoods.

Dom 12 

A bar for intellectuals

Located just off Ostozhenka, dubbed Moscow's golden mile, Dom 12 is a restaurant-cum-wine bar beloved by the city's intellectuals. Dom 12's schedule includes lectures, book presentations and film screenings, while in the summer time guests migrate to a lovely courtyard. The food is quite good and not too Westernized, and the wine list is extensive.
