8. Winzavod

Tucked behind the rusting Kurskiy Train Station, Winzavod is Moscow's very own Meatpacking District. The one-time factory now houses a series of galleries, one of which recently exhibited photographs by Terry Richardson; also here: the "concept store" Cara & Co., which features Belgian and Australian clothing designers, a hip, if overpriced, café and an array of household items. Many a Western celebrity has made Winzavod the place to swing by when in town; this is where to go for fashion shows, art openings and sightings of the city's rich and notorious. Take the ring line or brown line to Kurskaya.
