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

The way to every little girl’s (and the odd boy’s) heart is a pink candy stripe interior with a sugar-coated bouquet laden with lollipops. Think Alice in Wonderland, step through the looking glass and imagine your child has just drank the growing potion; in Cukier Lukier all the furnishings... Read more
Przekąski Zakąski
Over summer Gazeta Wyborcza published a list of ‘bars that changed Warsaw’. I don’t remember it offhand, but it was a pretty on-point collection of revolutionary haunts: Charlotte, Między Nami, Chłodna, etc. In that number, I remain pretty certain Przekąski Zakąski were in there as well – and why...

Leisure 23 September 2013 0

I’d taken one of the free survey classes at Yoga Republic about a year back and already knew it was the sort of place I was into – clean and tidy with a dash of bohemian style. Located in a charismatic, high-ceilinged prewar building in the center, it’s spacious... Read more

Shopping 14 September 2013 0

Every few months or so, a new shop pops up and Bizuu is my absolute favourite so far. It’s not as intense about hi-fashion like the shops up the block, in fact, you won’t find any international designers here – but what you will find is an absolutely gorgeous... Read more

At last, the famous LV monogrammed bags, wallets, suitcases and shoes have made their way to Poland. If you’ve been around Al. Jerozolimskie over the past month, you would have noticed that the upscale, ultra elegant Vitkac department store has become home to the Louis Vuitton shop (the huge... Read more

Monochrome gun metal grey colors are offset by a fashionable crowd attired in red shoes, pink trousers and blue headphones. This clean, concrete space is speckled with plaster moldings of reindeer heads, and excels on the cocktail front. Order from an iPad menu, before settling back for cocktails made... Read more
Lewanowicz Café & Boutique
I don’t wear a whole lot of jewelry, but I love tinkering about with baubles and other shiny things. I’ve got a few really beloved pieces which I rotate from event to event, but I’m constantly in search of that rare new set of earrings or charm necklace. The new... Read more

Warsaw’s rebirth is complete. A city once regarded as dark, drab and dowdy has come to be recognized as one of the most thrilling cities in Europe. That’s something reflected in her architecture, attitude, restaurants and bars. It’s also mirrored by her growing taste in fashion. A city that... Read more

Restaurants 29 August 2013 0

The cafe on top of the Traffic bookstore in the center of Warsaw is many things to me. It is a classroom (where I meet my Polish tutor), an office (free wi-fi and plenty of space), a meeting place and, most importantly, a place to relax and let time... Read more
