Catering to more than just the overspill from Hala Koszyki, this hangout has assumed immediate cult... Read more
Barka Wynurzenie
Drinking on the Wisła no longer means having to settle for mainstream beer served a notch above warm. Leading this (r)evolutionary process is Wynurzenie, a floating bar set on a canopied barge. Bounce across the gangplank to indulge in tap beers from Raduga and a Mexican menu that’s modest... Read more

Already a legend on account of their Mokotów location, the Gringo crew have expanded their operations with the opening of a new outlet in the Koszyki food hall.
