Big things are happening in this small little room. Under the stewardship of Kevin Bradley this ex-pat hit has now added Guinness and live sports (it’s the rugger bugger favorite) to their offer to go alongside a fab menu by Kiwi chef Shane. An intimate space clad in brickwork... Read more
Warsaw Tortilla Factory
Warsaw’s premier sports pub: and it’s not just the extent of their sporting offer that elevates WTF, but the atmosphere. Whether it’s international rugby, or Bristol City on a Tuesday night, the tension, camaraderie and horseplay are unmatched. On the occasions when there is no sport, swing by for... Read more

Going Out 8 July 2014 0

Ten tap and two pump beers offer a magnificent spread of daily changing beers, and the good news continues with the choice in the fridge: there’s 120 beers down there, so gamble on a rather jolly night. Interiors are balanced with the pre-war heritage of the building, and are... Read more
Delirium Warszawa
Until Cuda Na Kiju opened last year – May was it? – the denizens of Warsaw lived in serious deprivation. Sure, there were bars that sold good beer, but they weren’t for you and me: they were for hipsters and half-wits. Cuda changed that, presenting a range of craft... Read more

Going Out 22 March 2014 0

You know what, it’s going to be best if I pretend I’ve never heard of Chłodna 25: none of its history, none of its trials, none of its tribulations and absolutely nothing about its place in Warsaw folklore. So there you go, assume if you will, that I’m visiting... Read more

Going OutRestaurants 25 January 2014 0

As a self-confessed creature of habit, my January’s have something of a repetitive look: without fail they begin with a croaked yawn, a splash of Alka Seltzer and the steely intention to never drink again. As a rule such promises last about a week, sometimes even longer, before ending,... Read more
Ministerstwo Kawy
Just the chicest little cafe you may see for a while: pristine white tiles and Edwardian-style furnishings combined with a pretty funky contemporary lamp, and simple tables, chairs and comfy chaises. Warm and welcoming, it’s a rarity in that it’s neither too commercial nor too hipster – in spite... Read more

Koszyki

Going Out 13 October 2013 0

***CLOSED*** A neo-gothic pile of bricks crammed with a concise offer of everything you need to stock the larder: seafood from Greece (oooh, the octopus); luxury lamb and beef; cakes courtesy of Zofia Rozycka, Warsaw’s best (and best known) cake peddler; and fresh fruit and veg that outscores anything...

Charlotte

Going Out 13 October 2013 0

You wouldn’t call Charlotte a natural wine bar, rather, it’s more of a scene bar. Functioning as Warsaw’s trendiest boulangerie/café during the day, it’s easy for normal people to leave traumatized by the catwalk parade of poseurs who’ve made this their home. And yes, the air is thick with... Read more
Bar Studio
Created from the ashes of Chłodna 25, a cult café and cultural powerhouse closed due to its “disruptive” activities, Bar Studio is somewhat a continuation of the endeavor and somewhat not. Undoubtedly, the interiors are much more polished, located in the couloirs of the Palace of Culture and Science. The ascetic,... Read more
