Review: Lunapark
Lazy days and crazy nights at the biggest hit of the summer so far… What Is It? Put simply, the most imaginative F&B concept that Warsaw’s ever seen. Set in an abandoned outdoor leisure complex running to the flank of a busy highway, dip down a concrete stairwell to... Read more

Going Out 10 June 2019 0

For the best surprise this summer, see the reopening of Nocny Market: months after Warsaw bade a tearful farewell to this nocturnal institution, along came the news that, well, they hadn’t died yet. More than just an ultra-edgy collection of ethnic cook spots, the weekend Nocny Market is the... Read more

Home to one of the most exciting vegan scenes in the world (yep, really!), more evidence of Warsaw’s plant-based fixation comes with Vege Małpa, a place with a raw, hipster design (monkey wallpaper, cheerful street art, retro fittings and cheeky, offbeat touches) and a menu that presents X-rated food...

For reasons that can only be attributed to a collective bout of madness, Warsaw has traditionally turned its back on the sacred bagel – the city’s excuse, however, can’t really be faulted: let’s face it, what we’ve had so far just hasn’t been that good. But excuses aren’t going... Read more

It’s hard to fault a simple concept when it’s executed this well. In this case, that means rotisserie chickens and guinea fowl served on wooden trays with an array of homemade sauces that include sweet plum, spicy mango and Sriracha. Amiable service, a funky / retro design (old LPs,... Read more

How to describe it? Think Hala Koszyki for the Vice generation. Dubbed Mordor by those working there, the office-heavy district around Domaniewska has no shortage of detractors, but they’ve thinned in number since the launch of Postępu 5. Gathering cult street food outlets under one industrial roof, you’ll be... Read more

Restaurants 12 November 2018 0

Already recognizable from Nocny Market, the success of Marcin and Przemek’s mobile ramen stop has been such that a bricks-and-mortar venue was deemed necessary. Scruffy, frayed and clattery, the stationary address feels the ideal outlet for their operation: step inside to join other hip creatures Instagramming the only jiro... Read more
Nocny Market: The End
So it ends. Three years after reshaping the way Warsaw eats and meets, Nocny Market will be opening for one last hurrah this weekend before making way for the builders. Housed for the last few summers on the disintegrating platforms of Warszawa Głowna, a long overdue plan to revamp... Read more
