© entuziast - the writing on the window says it all

in a previous post we talked about the relocation of fott, moscow's leading streetwear store. it may have moved elsewhere to bigger premises, the store is still very much connected to its former location by way of its art director yuri antonov. he teamed up with fellow motorbike fans dmitriy pantyushin - co-founder of the local clevermoto motorcycle club - and semyon berchanskiy and eldar ka, to launch a new hybrid retail and hospitality concept. called entuziast, it's not only a café where motorbike fans can meet and hang out, but also a workshop where minor bike repairs are done.

the place has the laid-back feel of a club house, and the simple décor of whitewashed brick walls and green timber floor has been spiced up with a mix of vintage motorcycle paraphernalia such as vintage plates and flags. a large shelving system showcases relevant merchandise, from a range of hipster helmets, to leather jackets and other gadgets. the bar menu lists a concise selection of artisanal russian beers and other beverages, and also some tasty small bites. last but noty least entuziast café will soon feature a music corner where not only a deejay will spin records [fridays and saturdays] but also sell select vinyl. location: stoleshnikov pereulok 7 [tverskaya].
