Shot therapy? Step in, for that’s what’s on offer in Warsaw’s strangest launch for quite some time. While theme bars are the rage in Asia (Hitler and toilets figure highly among other inappropriate motifs), in Poland they’ve never really taken off – and that’s fine with me. I like... Read more

The ambiance isn’t the most amazing, with huge glass windows and a generic design exuding the welcome glow of an office on Monday. But as evening sets, the lighting casts a nice glow and the atmosphere revs up a touch. The shop section is much like any other wine... Read more

While there’s some decent bottles of rum, there’s perhaps not enough to justify calling it a rum... Read more

Restaurants 8 June 2013 0

Warsaw is a place that makes it hard to find the best bars. With no genuine drinking district, decent venues are often spread out across a large area or hidden away down back streets you might not even know exist. Take Mały Wojtek, a bar allegedly named after a... Read more
