Notes: Talerzyki

Blog 13 December 2017 0

From the makers of Bazar Kocha comes a new concept that casts the spotlight on Warsaw’s trend du jour: small plates. Enjoyed inside swank, retro-tinged interiors, the lively nature of Talerzyki is given an added boost by old school, classic cocktails inspired by the inter-war age. However, it’s the... Read more
Review: Worek Kości
A celebration of both the burlesque and bizarre, Worek Kości is the bar Edgar Allan Poe would create were he raised from the dead. Dark and decadent, it’s everything you want from a shadowy daytime coffee spot to a lively evening hangout with ad-libbed cocktails and an unconventional program... Read more

Central Bar

Going Out 2 December 2017 0

The beer (supplied by Bierhalle) is fine, the cocktails are getting better, and the atmosphere is cranked to max: you get the buzzy sense that you’re in the middle of something that’s captured Warsaw’s imagination – the natural focal point of Hala Koszyki, the ever-stretching Central Bar has been...

The Cool Cat Reinventing itself to serve pimped-up versions of ‘Korean with a twist’, this fun spot has come on in leaps and bounds since opening two years back. Highlights: K-fries (kimchi, bulgogi beef, chips – messy, delicious), a dessert that saw a heap of matcha tea ice cream... Read more

No blog for three weeks!? Sorry, it’s called being busy! Not too busy, however, to forget to take pics of the places I’ve visited – below, the highs (and lows) of those past missing weeks: Considerably more casual than their other ventures, the new Le Cedre Lounge has made a... Read more
Review: Fat Buddha
Idolized one moment, forgotten the next, few streets encapsulate the boom and bust nature of Warsaw’s after dark scene better than Mazowiecka. Having represented the very pinnacle of the city’s social life for much of the Naughty Noughties, the last few years saw numerous pioneering venues fall between the... Read more

Bar Pacyfik

Going Out 28 July 2017 0

Candy floss pink and ocean blue? Remarkably, these colors work thanks to lighting that’s kept dimmed and dark: inspired by 80s Mexico City, Pacyfik looks and feels raw and gritty, hip and happening. Catering to more than just the overspill from Hala Koszyki, this hangout has assumed immediate cult... Read more
Review: Bez Tytułu
Background No street embodies ‘the spirit of now’ quite like Poznańska. The rash of bars that opened a few years back were the kick-starter, while the subsequent re-cobbling of the road and sensitive renovation of many of the buildings lent it that last big push. Up until now, however,... Read more
