Propaganda Moscow, Guide & Review
There are three things in life that are certain: death, taxes and Propaganda Club. A cafe club with a backstage look, Propaganda has been going strong since 1997 meaning that it’s Moscow’s oldest club and has really stood the test of time. Every evening there is something happening at the club but, of course, Fridays and Saturdays are the biggest nights here. Virtually every weekend the club brings foreign DJs to play techno or house and on all other evenings local resident DJs keep the party going.
The best thing about the club is that it’s popular with pretty much everyone: dreadlocked ravers dance alongside businessmen in suits. Entrance is free, face control is definitely not as strict as in many other clubs. During the day Propaganda also functions as a restaurant with really good and reasonably priced food.
Propaganda is surely one of the best places in Moscow to go for an unpretentious boogie – and what’s more there’s a party here every night of the week! Thursdays and Saturdays tend to be the biggest nights, when you’re most likely to see a guest DJ from around the world spinning the ones and twos. Hit the bar early for some cheaper beverages (before 11:00pm) and then watch as a cosmopolitan crowd of middle-class Russians, expats and tourists filter in. Tables and chairs are moved away to make room for a makeshift dance floor and then suddenly, in the space of minutes, this laidback bar becomes party central.
