The Gorki Restaurant has its superb location a few steps from Tverskaya Street, the main street of the capital that leads directly to the Kremlin and Red Square.
Gorkiís original interior dates from the 1950s, a style known as Soviet Empire. Corinthian-style columns faced in red marble tiling dominate the entrance hall; in place of the traditional capitals there are five-pointed Soviet stars surrounded by laurel wreaths. Tables set with crisp white linen and stainless steel wine buckets give a contemporary touch, and a live jazz quartet on the stage in the far corner completes the restaurantís atmosphere of indulgent luxury.
Capacity of the Gorki Restaurant is 100 seats in the hall and 50 seats on the balcony.
