Żelazna 51/53 (Norblin Factory)
There’s no shortage of bars in the Norblin complex, but none have caught the attention more than Piano Bar – crowned with a show-stealing 12-foot chandelier that dangles from the ceiling of this dual-level structure, it’s character alone oozes a sense of confident prosperity. Touting chessboard tiled floors and tie-wearing staff, the feeling is of entering Jay Gatsby’s ballroom.
And for all the classy sense of maturity, there is much fun to be had, and in part that’s down to a busy program of concerts that are well-tuned to the space: funk and blues jams are a forte. So too, though, are the author’s cocktails. Devised by Tomek Malek, a former World Champion ‘flair bartender’, his influence as Norblin’s beverage director courses through the veins of this beautiful bar.
