Located in the center of Moscow behind the Theatre of Nations it owns its name to an inconspicuous yellow iron door you have to pull to enter. But there's more to it than meets the eye. It's not just another coworking place – many talented professionals come here to concentrate on their work, join an existing project or create a new startup. Due to this spirit of networking and creativity TMT decided to choose this venue for the first Club of the new year. And it served its purpose.
Around 15-20 people gathered in the cozy loft conveying the 19-th century atmosphere at the agreed time but some more kept coming through the evening. Some of them were expats from the US, Canada, Turkey, Germany, the others came from Russia. There was an unlikely set of characters with different backgrounds there: English and Spanish teachers, construction business and travel professionals, photographers and journalists. All of them were open-minded and friendly.
Guests, some of which knew each other already, treated themselves to a tasty and quite adventurous menu of traditional New Year foodstuffs, simple yet customary to the native population for this winter period. It included tangerines, sprats on brown bread, Russian salad, sandwiches with ham and slightly-salted brynza, eggplant spread which was a discovery for many, cupcakes, pretzel and caramel. The sparkling rose wine turned out to be the drink of the night and its stock ran thin pretty soon. But there was some dry red left in the attic.
