Fodor's Expert Review Ryumochnaya
Ulitsa Bolshaya Nikitskaya Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice
Ryumochnaya. For a true Russian vodka-drinking experience, head to this 125-year-old tavern whose name literally translates as "shot bar." Drinks are amazingly affordable and there's a large variety of zakuski, tasty bites that help the booze go down, like salmon sandwiches, boiled prawns, and fried potatoes. 22/2 ul. Bolshaya Nikitskaya, bldg. 1, Bolshaya Nikitskaya, Moscow, Moscow, 125009. 495/691–5474. Metro: Okhotny Ryad.
