Review: Stolica
Stolica proves there’s more to Old Town than meets the eye… Few areas in the capital have a higher density of restaurants than the Old Town, but quantity is no guarantee of quality. Far from it. In a district top-heavy with below-par options aimed at onetime guests, Stolica stands... Read more
Review: Mokolove
Slowly, surely, Mokotów is stirring. Of course, there’s already some pretty fab restaurants present in the district, just maybe not as many as the area deserves.

More than just a side... Read more
Review: Relax
You may know Relax already: in fact, if you’re a coffee aficionado, then that’s probably a given. A cult meeting point amid the concrete and graffiti of Złota, it’s long been viewed as somewhere quite special. Likewise, it’s also been viewed as somewhere quite small. Prayer No. 1: “Couldn’t...

Booted out of their original location in Mirów, this legendary dive bar hopes to rekindle the glory years at a new address on that bit of Żurawia most forget exists – all that is, aside from their ardent band of fans. Surviving the move from their former digs is... Read more
