Przystań Nowa Fala
Playing more than a bit part in the Wisła’s gentrification is Przystań, a sleek moored vessel with ample seating both inside and out. On the first level, order from a bar well-stocked with renegade beers, world wines and funky cocktails, before heading to the open upstairs deck to join... Read more

Boldly decorated with posters, bunting and vibrantly-colored old school armchairs, this Wilanów mainstay is firmly embedded in the hearts of the local community. Filling a dual role as a bookstore, this family friendly space cranks out by far the best specialty coffee in the postcode. Plakatówka ul. Hlonda 2 Read more

The terrace is the place to be, sat shaded from the sun by dozens of brollies that dangle overhead. The coffee, brewed using Chemex, Aeropress and Drip methods, is a big deal, and complimented by French crepes served from a combi van parked outside. Inside, it’s cool, minimal and... Read more
Hałas Vinyl + Coffee
At 15 sq/m it’s a squeeze but Hałas doesn’t half pack a punch within its small footprint. Doubling as a record store, it’s the kind of place where hip punters stock up on Winehouse and Bjork while ordering up coffee ordered from roasters such as London’s Dark Arts roastery.... Read more

Blue-collar Grochów isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this café has done much to swing the area’s rep into credit. Creaky floorboards and references to the address’s former function as a tailor’s shop lend a warmth that’s particularly pronounced once the overhead draftsman’s lamps are switched on. Homemade cakes,... Read more

Originating as a store selling cool ceramics and lavish green succulents, the number of dawdling customers meant that adding coffee to the offer was a natural step. Wouldn’t you know it, people loved it even more. Sourcing a diverse range of coffee from the locally-based Java roasters, this beautiful... Read more

Going Out 18 April 2019 0

Hip and happening, the concept at Reginabar is a wacky amalgam that mixes elements of New York’s Little Italy with China Town next door. The menu rocks, but find it augmented by a dynamic cocktail list that reflects the crazy things happening in Warsaw’s world of drinks: that means,... Read more

Noted for the diversity of its events program, Niebo does it all: from comedy nights to vintage markets via performances from cult acts such as Neneh Cherry and Black Sun Empire. The gritty look complements the artsy, off-radar airs perfectly. Niebo ul. Nowy Świat 21 Read more

Helping to fan the ‘sense of secret’, the no-cellphone policy (you cover the camera with a sticker) ensures a zero amount of berks recording the shenanigans that await. Allow the names they’ve pulled do the talking – past events include sets by Pete Tong, Laurent Garnier and Hercules &... Read more

Going Out 21 February 2019 0

With the generic Nero on one side, and the super cool Fat White on the other, Robusta occupies a safe middle space in more ways than one. Whether it can compete with either is to be seen, but for now there’s no doubt that it’s mere existence is further... Read more
