Features 16 November 2013 0

Warsaw is increasingly choked with bars, yet devising a pub crawl remains a big ask: too many routes are mined and booby trapped by the big beer vendors and their chemical stock. Bypass them entirely by following the Insider’s weaving path… Pub crawls are a tough business. In the... Read more

Shot therapy? Step in, for that’s what’s on offer in Warsaw’s strangest launch for quite some time. While theme bars are the rage in Asia (Hitler and toilets figure highly among other inappropriate motifs), in Poland they’ve never really taken off – and that’s fine with me. I like... Read more

If one was to pen a history of fine dining in Warsaw it would make a light read. With a few notable exceptions, in the twenty years that followed the changes of ’89, it meant bow-tied waiters and platters of game. It meant men with moustaches and hunched, elf-like... Read more
