Club Review February 18, 2008
Club Cruising in Moscow
By Dmitriy Babooshka Browse author
Page 2 of 2

While we were on the way Nikolai told me that a "babushka" in the gay tusovka means "an old fag who no longer has erection so he generously offers his ass to anyone." That certainly was an interesting piece of news but I said my name is already a recognizable brand and I'm not gay, but thank you very much anyway.

Den I Noch is very well hidden, located in a House of Culture for Blind People. I shit you not, my dear reader. The club rents the space from the Russian Society of Blind People. That explains why this place is so dark and crowded with all kinds of expensively dressed guys (some of whom are politicians and TV presenters, as I have noticed) rubbing elbows and more.

I was too disgusted to see any more details of this debauch so I said goodbye to my new friends and left to continue drinking to the just-opened GRADUS BAR located on Sretenka, next door to my place. Actually it is right across from Sakhar club, which I reported about in the last issue.

I don't really like it when a club owner wants to please everybody. Gradus Bar's opening party was almost ending when I joined it but I got the point p.d.q. The crowd was so different from what I'd expected, but here in the center of Moscow! These semi-provincial patrons enjoyed everything from the Pet Shop Boys and 2Unlimited to U2 and The Beatles. With just one glance I figured out that most of the invited girls were either depressive secretaries or hard-working accountants with seldom joys in their miserable lives. It was like being in a cafe disco in my aunt's village.

And yet the bar is massive, beyond imagination. I think you can fit in at least two soccer fields in this basement, which was built in 1913. My local sources say it used to host Stalin's private movie theater.

The bar boasts not only a great selection of beers and German wurst (Luther would love it!) but also two dance floors and a very expensive set of music equipment for live shows. What kind of live music is still a mystery.

I was fed up with my adventures and a bit drunk, so I came home and passed out with my clothes on. My dreams were an endless carousel of images featuring Stalin riding Luther's tail, and my neighbor Galina Petrovna swimming in the rivers of German beer together with the unknown owner of the passport. The most important thing was that no matter how deeply I slept, my sphincter was tightened up, safe and secure.
