Enjoy the signature rituals and traditions of The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya
St. Regis Butler Service
St. Regis Butler Service has been a signature of the St. Regis experience for more than a century, and we remain the only luxury hospitality brand to offer this personalized service at every one of our hotels around the world. From a forgotten travel item to a perfectly pressed suit ready for an important meeting or a thoughtful gift for a loved one, no request is too small or unattainable no matter the hour of the day. The essence of St. Regis Butler Service is discreet, personalized, anticipatory attention that allows guests to savor the rarest of all luxuries – time.
In 1934, Fernand Petiot, the bartender at The St. Regis New York’s King Cole Bar, perfected the recipe for a vodka-and-tomato juice cocktail he dubbed the Bloody Mary. Deemed too racy a name for the hotel’s clientele, it was rechristened the Red Snapper. While the latter moniker may not have stood the test of time, Fernand’s spicy concoction certainly has. Today, the Bloody Mary remains the signature cocktail of the St. Regis brand, with The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya crafting its own interpretation of the libation. We invite you to sample from our collection of Bloody Mary cocktails whenever you stay with us. Cheers!
Originated by Mrs. Astor, founder of the first St. Regis in New York to host intimate gatherings with her closest friends, afternoon tea at The St. Regis is a timeless tradition. “Time for Tea” at The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya is a great way to gather and socialize with beloved friends and family. Every month, savor a themed afternoon tea, which combines the delicacies of The St. Regis Afternoon Tea with fashion, literature or art.

As day becomes night, radiant candlelight flicker in the cool breeze and music fills the air. There’s no more appropriate way to welcome the evening. Marvel as our Head Butler revives the traditional art of sabrage, the most memorable way to begin a toast at The St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya.

Caroline Astor, mother of the St. Regis founder and doyenne of Gilded Age high society, entertained in a style that was unprecedented both in its opulence and its exclusivity. Her celebrated galas were often followed by intimate midnight supper experiences, which only a select few were invited to attend. These more relaxed affairs, distinguished by the finest wine and cuisine, were coveted after-parties where guests could unwind from the formality of the preceding event. Traditionally commencing at midnight, they now conclude at this hour.
