clientele

'rich' 30-something businessmen in pursuit of model-like chicks, model-like chicks in pursuit of 'rich' 30-something businessmen, the occasional tourist, randy expats

service

quite okay. VERY expensive drinks.

interior

located in a wing of the russian ministry of communications, hence the name, it is not as spectacular as you'd expect from a club with this status. high ceilings and massive doors emanate an atmosphere dating back to the stalin era. two levels with a bar

ambience

01-2005: the former ministertsvo club just reopened as skazka <=== even though it is hailed as one of moscow's leading clubs, it's a bit of a bummer. you really have to look and fit the part of ministerstvo's client profile [gucci clad with arrogant tinseltown stare for men and curvy bosom in tight d&g top and peroxide blonde manes for girls] or you won't get in. but: addressing the single-digit-IQ-bouncers in a foreign tongue to demonstrate your bankability may sometimes work. once inside, the soothing factor is ministry's great sound system and great house and techno beats. well-known western deejays regularly take up residence here.
