Medeleev Bar

"Secret addresses", which in fact are just as secret as any other fact that is known by more than three people, seem to be all the rage in many a restaurant and club scene these days. In this regard, finding the consciously alternative Mendeleev Bar is like reaching the end of a treasure hunt, with the smug satisfaction that you have joined a select club of people in the know about an exclusive and special spot. You first have to enter through a run-of-the-mill Chinese restaurant (the Lucky Noodles sign looks like it might have come straight from New York's Chinatown), decked with cheap plastic chairs and highlighting the cat as a purveyor of good fortune. There, two types of delicious noodle soup are cooked every day in huge kettles. However, your goal is a niche to the right of the kitchen - its black velvet curtains conceal a staircase that leads down to the Mendeleev Bar in the basement level. The sight during evening hours can be amusing, with women in high-heeled shoes and bearing brand-name purses lingering at the entry of the Chinese eatery. As is often the case at must-be locales, access to the bar is through face-control, which means that your entry will be dependent on the mood of the doorman. However, if you don't get admitted, then you can always other order a take-away Chinese soup back upstairs at the restaurant.
