Typical Moscow beer bar across from the Byelorusskiy Train Station on the edge of the center of town. The name means "There's Time." The ground floor is small (about 4 x 6 yards/meters), with a small bar opposite the door and 12 stools. There are enough tables and chairs here for maybe 30. The downstairs room is about the same size, but is crammed with boothes and tables with enough seating for about 60. The furniture is dark wood. The ceiling is off-white plaster, while the floor is dark wood planks. The walls are off-white plaster and sparsely decorated with beer paraphrenalia. The downstairs is very dark, with some subdued track lighting and a few faint 1920s lamps hanging above the boothes. Two small TVs are on the walls, while loud pop music plays on the sound system. The place was packed on a Friday at 2:00 p.m. The service was incredibly slow, while the prices were surprisingly reasonable. The food menu was uninspired but passable, as was the lunch I ordered.

12 taps, the best of which was a brew from the Durdin brewpub. Others included Spaten, Franziskaner Pale and Dark, Paulaner Pale and Dark, F├╝rstenberg, Krombacher, Beck's, Staropramen, Blanche de Bruxelles and Krusovice Dark. They were also offering a Paulaner Maibier. The Durdin offering came in a mug with the Vremya Yest logo (featuring Laurel and Hardy) on it, while my other brews came in the proper logo glassware and coasters. The beers were in good shape and served well. This is a pretty cookie-cutter experience, but there is nothing better in this part of town.
