The Raffles Europejski Warsaw have ruffled the sheets once more, this time with a pop-up bar inside an enclosed courtyard hidden from the prying eyes of the outside world.
Evoking the atmosphere of an enchanted garden, join Warsaw’s high society in a large-plan oasis flush with trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers – keep your eyes peeled, for it’s not rare to find Head Chef Beñat Alonso tending to these, foraging for ingredients to cook for his guests downstairs.
Championing a quiet sense of luxury, it’s to this background that the Pavilion is set – enclosed in glass and planted on a plank-wood platform, sink back in an armchair while indulging in specially selected appetizers, wines, chilled champagnes and light, floral cocktails that entirely fit the moment.
And speaking of moments, when should you plot a visit? Find the Pavilion open from 6 p.m. each Friday or Saturday (live guitarist on Fri and DJ on Sat!), or swoop by for afternoon tea on Sunday from 3 p.m. Choosing the latter, you’ll be enjoying an elegant dessert buffet played out to sounds of a harpist and the soothing clink of champagne flutes – reservations required.
