City Hunter: Eat-and-Work Cafes In Moscow
August 10, 2012 17:24

 Where new ideas are born? What is the role of atmosphere in thinking and analyzing? What mysterious factors influence this process? How unusual decisions are made? Is there any general behavioral principle that governs every situation? There is no exact answer. But we are able to find some examples of spaces where we can learn to become more imaginative, creative, communicable and decisive. These are the so-called “third places”, where a lot of people come in search for that special atmosphere of inventiveness and a new flow of business process and communication, combining all that with a cup of bracing coffee. Here is an overview of cafes in Moscow that give their guests all the opportunities for thinking, studying, working and enjoying attractive meals as well. 

 

Starbucks “4 winds”

This coffee house is based at the “4 Winds” business centre, and this defines the atmosphere of the place. Designed by experts from Seattle, the space is clearly zoned. Separate rooms with free Wi-Fi are always available for conducting negotiations and business meetings, and if privacy is not a question, you and your partners can sit by the fireplace.

If your needs are urgent but you do not have any gadgets, SchiSliva is ready to assist you. Four free iPads, a scanner and a printer are always available. The place is quite spacious and offers great Russian dishes, such as beetroot soup with prunes, stewed rice porridge with vanilla and nuts, the jelly of northern fish and crayfish with horseradish, and delicious homemade desserts. What is more, there is a special room for kids, where they can play and communicate, while their parents are busy working.
