We sat in a bar in the late hour …
A bar is usually called a drinking establishment where alcoholic beverages are sold for immediate consumption. Unlike cafes and restaurants, the assortment of bars consists mainly of beverages – non-alcoholic, light alcoholic (beer, wine), as well as strong. But the most popular among the drinks served at the bar, of course, are cocktails. The employee serving the customers in the bar, that is, the bartender, usually does not just know how to properly prepare the cocktail ordered by the visitor, but does it artistically, sometimes even combining it with the art of a juggler.
Traditionally, the bar should be equipped with a high counter – a narrow long and high table that encloses the bartender’s workplace. Actually, the term “bar” itself came from the name of this rack. Behind the counter is a mirrored showcase with bottled drinks and glasses – the so-called rear bar. Initially, visitors drank ordered drinks while standing. Subsequently, for the convenience of customers, special high chairs and armchairs appeared. Some bars also serve food.
Expensive restaurants in Moscow (and not only Moscow) must equip their halls with a bar. A wonderful bar is available in the restaurant “Kruazh” on Prechistenka. Here visitors can drink an aperitif while waiting for the preparation of the ordered dishes. Bars are usually available in hotels and some cafes. Behind the bar you can order the main course from the restaurant menu. There are many fans who visit bars exclusively. Here they have the opportunity to relax, relax, talk with friends.
Bars can functionally vary, focusing on a specific assortment, service method or a specific contingent of visitors. For example, in the beer bar, beer prevails among the drinks offered. In the bikini bar, visitors are served by the most stripped attractive waitress girls. Bikers Bar – an institution that has a circle of selected visitors-bikers. There are also elite VIP bars, also designed for a circle of selected visitors, among which important persons prevail.

Signature cocktails, as well as specialties, expensive restaurants in Moscow will always offer you their brand, their business card.
