Notes From Powiśle

Notes From Powiśle

Blog 30 June 2017 0

While Powiśle was once the bubbling epicenter of Warsaw’s flirtation with full-bearded hipsterdom, today the area has moved forward, gentrified and matured. This new, cultivated mentality is especially pronounced on Rozbrat, a highly aspirational street in the process of being infilled with smart brasseries and bistros. First, on any... Read more
Kafe Zielony Niedzwiedź
The Green Bear has turned into the mothership for all things relating to slow food: if in doubt, check the menu, an ode to provenance that comes complete with detailed biographies of their suppliers. Using creative techniques, this restaurant modernizes Polish food and rolls it out inside a stylish... 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
The New Wisła!
Some things are worth waiting for: though delivered behind schedule, the revamped promenade on the left side of the Wisła has won acclaim for transforming the riverfront. Launched in several stages (with some still to go), the latest section was officially opened yesterday by Warsaw’s mayor, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz. “You... Read more
Night of Museums (Part 4)
Polin ul. Anielewicza 6, polin.pl When the idea for Polin, Museum of the History of Polish Jews, was born, a small blue ohel appeared on the site.

Notes: Solec 44

Notes: Solec 44

Blog 10 February 2017 0

Solec 44 does nothing if not challenge gastronomic norms. Found on the upper floor of a shabby Communist pavilion, the versatility of this place makes it great to hang out with friends over beer and board games: it’s not often you find faces from the TV in the same... Read more
Czeska Baszta

Czeska Baszta

Going Out 9 February 2017 0

Halfway up one of the Harry Potter turrets that support Poniatowski Bridge, find divey Czeska engulfed in a murky yellow glow. Boisterous but friendly, the ace up their sleeve is a brilliant assembly of Czech craft beer. Enjoy them in an intimate, rough looking interior that shakes and rattles... Read more
Review: Rozbrat 20
There was a time when Powiśle was the volcanic center of what history will remember as Warsaw’s dalliance with hipsterdom. Now the area has moved forward, gentrified and matured. If once the district was (in)famous for grotto-like shops and bizarre street fashions, today its a polished place of four-wheel... Read more
