If you love to dance, but don't like Club XIII or Circus - the men in black leather and their inevitable towering blondes and toothless bodyguards who populate those places are enough to bring even the most dedicated house fans down - head to Bottle. The club's Friday "Jazzy Cocktail" parties are a breath of truly fresh air. At this club, show up sans the Armani duds and don't worry that the goons on face control duty will send you packing - Bottle's door guards aren't goons and, besides, they use a system that appears to be as objective as it is organized. And the music isn't bad, either: DJs who made their name at the once legendary Propaganda Thursdays (DJs Sapunov, Sanches, Stankov, Soul Man and Hodkins) are now spinning at Bottle Fridays - the perfect venue for people who want to have a nice, inexpensive dinner (500 rubles, including a drink), then spend the next few hours tripping the light fantastic.

Butylka. 16 Ulitsa Petrovka. Metro Teatralnaya. Tel. 209-6984. 8 p.m. to dawn.
