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 the giant mural of a weather-worn babcia, and it’s under her watery gaze that drinkers congregate to make the most of a decent fridge generously stocked with specialty beers from Poland’s more maverick producers.
Also successfully enduring the challenges of their cross-city move is the underlying spirit that made them so famous. Defiantly arty in its character, the creative mood that prevails manifests itself in a quirky design that involves retro accents, refurbed armchairs, a neon of Lennon and the compelling illustrations of Izabela Wójtowicz. It might not be the identical replica of the Chwila we all loved, but that doesn’t mean it’s in any inferior.
