The Sky Lounge Restaurant is favourably located on the top - 22 - floor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which stands on a hill above the Moskva River, thus, presenting a fantastic all-round view of the city.
The restaurant is modeled after the panoramic restaurants of Southeast Asia, while its interior combines hi-tech with minimalism with a light hint of Southeast Asian motifs. The interior centers around the huge Swarovsky chandelier. Leather sofas and smooth cushions, laconic dialogue of black and white colours, noble shades of old gold, warmth of live wood and plenty of cool air.

Capacity of the Sky Lounge Restaurant is 250 seats.

Live music, elite tea and cigars are the advantages.
