O2 Lounge summer terrace opening
Summer in the city is a time of enjoyment. Pure pleasure in all its forms – gastronomic, cultural, and aesthetic – await guests at the summer garden of the O2 Lounge rooftop. With the onset of warm weather, this special space is an awaited attraction for locals and visitors alike.
"This year we will continue to introduce guests to the garden culture and flora of the Russian regions," says Oksana Leonenko, General Manager of the hotel. "Grapes are one of the most picturesque climbing plants, and are invariably associated with the southern sun, bliss, and summer idleness, awakening childhood memories and provoking a healthy appetite."
A variety of plants, including honeysuckle, euonymus, currant, spirea, lilac, and of course grapes, creates a cosy atmosphere and transports guests from the heart of Moscow to different parts of the country. It’s an ideal setting for a special date, lifetime event, or casual dinner gathering with friends or the whole family.
This season, chefs Martin Repetto and Tom Collette present "Eat Good, Feel Good!" — a summer menu with culinary mini-performances in the open show kitchen. Prawn or octopus carpaccio, snail mille-feuille, hamachi crudo, crispy zucchini flowers with lobster, crab ravioli, foie gras burger, and peach with pistachios are among the signature dishes sure to surprise even seasoned gourmets.
The cocktail menu from Bar Manager Filipp Glushakov also invites you on a journey around Russia: behind each cocktail is a unique story with its own special aesthetic and original flavour combination. "Now more than ever, domestic tourism is becoming relevant. Come with us to the coldest place in the world, where temperatures drop to -70 degrees, or on a spit in the sea, over which a record 20 million birds fly during their annual migration – all that is right here within Russia. Our country has plenty of surprises for you. And we, in turn, are happy to charm you with drinks that convey the atmosphere of these places," says Filipp of his inspiration. A sip of summer in your glass: fresh and fruity, spicy and warming, deep and full of aromas of herbs and wild flowers …. Each cocktail is a work of art.
