El Krepel

Going Out 15 April 2018 0

Warsaw’s always had a sweet tooth, the difference being that it’s only in the past few years that it’s really embraced desserts as something to be placed on a pretty little pedestal and treated with awe. El Krepel does just that, presenting a range of elegant temptations lined up... Read more
Labour Cafe

Labour Cafe

Going Out 14 April 2018 0

Set inside one of the concrete towers at the top of Tamka, Labour Café’s clattery door crashes open onto a busy space that sets bare raw materials of steel, wood, concrete and brick against lashings of plant life and bursts of poster art. Crowded with creative types chatting to... Read more
Drugie Dno

Drugie Dno

Going Out 10 April 2018 0

Steel girders, vintage voltage meters and toilets disguised as elevator shafts lend Drugie Dno the look of a disused power station. Amping the industrialized look to the max, it’s a joy to explore and even better to drink in. Plus points go to a legit menu, and their determination... Read more
The Alchemist

The Alchemist

Going Out 9 April 2018 0

A small place with a big bag of tricks: upscale pub grub from Brit chef Ed Shellard, fancy cocktails, and a self-serve wall of beer from a choice of global brewers. Poland’s still getting used to the idea of ‘a pint after work’, but in The Alchemist the idea... Read more
Charlie

Charlie

Going Out 3 April 2018 0

Tonight you are Gatsby. Fine-tuned to capture the essence of the 20s, this first floor courtyard bar has it all: weekday jazz acts, moody lighting and, even, a tinkly fountain. The cocktails are sensual and addictive, but the ace in the pack is a ‘subconscious menu’ from which clients... Read more
Smolna 38

Smolna 38

Going Out 2 April 2018 0

Hated by the selfie mob (guests are required to cover their phones with a sticker), rated by everyone else, Smolna’s nights have grown to become legend. Pete Tong, Simian Mobile Disco and Hercules & Love Affair have all played in the past, which says much for the management’s ambition.... Read more

Relaks

Relaks

Going Out 15 March 2018 0

What kind of café round-up would this be without a 21-gun salute being fired in the direction of Relaks? The crowded interiors supply a retro accent, and are enjoyed by a fashion aware, laptop-touting crowd that travels across Warsaw to enjoy some of the best coffee in the region.... Read more
Cophi

Cophi

Going Out 13 March 2018 0

So small is Cophi that you get the idea you could scoop it into the palm of your hand. The condensed size adds to the allure of being somewhere special, and indeed you are: everything here feels perfectly executed. Cophi  ul. Hoża 58/60, tel. 513 422 908, open 7:30-20:00; Sat-Sun 10:00-17:00 Read more
El Botellon

El Botellon

Going Out 25 February 2018 0

Where once stood a decomposing printing house, its rotting carcass taken over by pop-up stores and an industrial club, now stands a luxury apartment block with jeeps outside. Inevitably, creeping gentrification has changed Powiśle’s character, a point reflected by the growing homogeny of its local bars and restaurants. Straight... Read more
