|We have a long-time-coming club report from Save Pleasure Island Blog roving reporter Thommy who visited gay club Central Station in Moscow, Russia this past March. Here is his report:|
After much research and knowing my company had my back, I decided it was worth whatever risk was involved to venture out. This reporter laughs in the face of danger for the Save PI Blog! At Central Station gates greet you just off the main sidewalk with security cameras and a buzz required to get through the gate.
|I was patted down, removed my jacket and did a coat check. The lower level consisted of a lounge room with a bar. The bar was U-shaped and the other side of it had a room with a dance floor and VIP area. The music was Top 40 Remixes and 8TRAX, believe it or not. Tempo was all over the place. I wasn't very impressed, although there was a shiny disco ball.|
|After midnight it began to fill up. Being in Moscow, I expected more of a European influence. I didn't travel this far to hear Top 40 Remixes! I noticed a stairwell that had been closed before with many people now going up and down it. What could be up here?|
|A large dance floor and balcony greeted me! I hit the jackpot. Nevermind the mostly naked guys, I counted 12 shiny disco balls up here and the music was MUCH more as I expected! (Techno) Sadly, right after this my wallet and iPhone were picked right out of my front pocket! So no more drunk emailing of pictures to Bob in Orlando and my hotel was able to send a car for me. It was actually a very nice club considering it's in the heart of Moscow. |
Editor's Note: Europe is well-known for the high quality of their pickpockets. That is likely the most harm that would ever come to a tourist. Here in the United States if a thief wants your iPhone, he shoots you! Thanks, Thommy!
