For the best surprise this summer, see the reopening of Nocny Market: months after Warsaw bade a tearful farewell to this nocturnal institution, along came the news that, well, they hadn’t died yet. More than just an ultra-edgy collection of ethnic cook spots, the weekend Nocny Market is the place to get tattooed in front of baying strangers, stock up on artisan donuts, swag some Indigo-colored Palace of Culture socks, get the whiskers waxed or simply boogie on down to side-burned DJs rescued from the Lost Years of Hipster. Set on the disheveled, disused platforms of Warszawa Główna station, it’s a place of good vibes, big beats and beery, blurry nights. Get there pronto to join the spirit of now.
