Arbatskaya (Russian: Арба́тская) is a station on the Filyovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Completed in 1935, it was one of the original Metro stations. The design is the same standard pillar-trispan template used for Smolenskaya, Sokolniki, and Park Kultury. The pillars are faced with pinkish marble and the platform is a matching shade of granite. The walls are covered with cream-colored ceramic tile. The architect was L. Teplitskiy

Arbatskaya's vestibule is a unique five-tiered, pentagonal structure with the word "Metro" written on all sides. The building is currently painted bright red, making it noticeable and instantly recognizable.
