The Club was relaunched in partnership with PubLife restaurant chain on May 31, 2017, and moved into a new spot in the very heart of the city. Now the Club has three stages; the main stage (160 seats) is reserved for the Club’s residents and touring music stars while the mansard stage hosts both the Club’s regular performances and experimental programs of various genres. With Voice Acoustic sound equipment from Germany and modern lighting system as well as its own label and vinyl music store, the Club is one of the best venues in Moscow for vivid, intelligent, creative and exploratory music.

The club’s interior is designed with no computers’ involvement by Irish architectural bureau. It features the classic Victorian style (expensive wooden parts, traditional English drapery, soft lights).
