Review: El Koktel
The Door’s Locked? Yes, and for a reason. Firstly, to keep undesirables at bay, and secondly, to add a personal touch. “We’re not a speakeasy,” stresses co-owner Mateusz, “but by keeping the door locked we’re able to meet and greet each guest and also say good bye at the... Read more

Targowy

Going Out 19 January 2019 0

Nestled beneath Ed Red lies Targowy, a long, shadowy bar that’s low on design thrills but high on merit. Occupied simply by high tables and a bar composed of colored, plastic crates, what it lacks in bling it makes up for with quality. Find decent cocktails, a thoughtful selection... Read more
The Secret Is Out
Themed on prohibition America, Warsaw’s latest covert bar has made quite a splash… BY ALEX WEBBER | PHOTOS BY ED WIGHT I’m Lost! It’s a speakeasy, hun. Unmarked from the outside, it’s a place that buys into the global trend for hidden bars: after all, who doesn’t love entering... Read more

Blog 7 November 2018 0

As extraordinary as it is eccentric, MOD is not your conventional restaurant. An odd meeting of ideas, it combines the work of three people (Kamila, Patrycja and Trisno) who between them have created a space that houses both a donut store and restaurant. It sounds a little dissonant, but... Read more
Welcome To The Fun House!
It’s not often that it happens, but every now and again you get a place that takes Warsaw’s nightlife in unexpected directions: for example, Nocny Market, a food and drinks concept in an abandoned train station – it sent the city crazy. Closed for good in October, its ultimate... Read more

Going Out 28 August 2018 0

Situated round the back of Trzech Krzyży (enter from Nowy Świat), this courtyard bar has become the new great hope of the nocturnal city. Open from early evening (hours will, apparently, be extended come September), it’s a glorious, hidden enclave that feels fresh in its approach. Founded by the... Read more
Review: The Long Bar
The Place With the city’s nightlife reaching new, uncharted highs, hotel bars have started looking increasingly redundant: gone, the days when they were the center of expat high jinx and riotous nights of tabletop dancing. Of course, some have fared better than others, but for the most part they’ve... Read more

Gosh. Co-owned by the Kasia Michalski Gallery to the flank, the restaurant feels like a natural extension: find contemporary art and photography set against raw brickwork while pendant bulbs cast a soft light down. Onto the important stuff, and Erwan Debono’s menu makes much of his native French background... Read more
Nightlife: Pimm’s O’Clock!
Few things in life feel as quintessentially English as a pitcher of Pimm’s: bringing to mind tittering toffs at Wimbledon and Ascot, the ultimate summer quencher has been dividing the British classes for nearly 200 years. Invented by James Pimm, the owner of a London oyster bar, and made... Read more

You don’t have to look too far back to remember the times when the opening of a new Indian restaurant would be the talk of the town – at least, among the British community if no-one else. Now, it all feels a little like Groundhog Day: a new Indian... Read more
