No Warsaw district has experienced quite such a profound transformation as Wola. Once a byword for urban decay, what was once a sad, dusty wasteland has blossomed to become the business district of tomorrow. Nowhere symbolizes this revolution as much as Pl. Europejski: but while the temptation is to gawk up towards the sparkling Spire, doing so ignores the changes on ground level. Filled with curving walkways, pinches of greenery and fancy water features, the city’s first post-war public access square has been a hands down hit since opening last year. But while it’s integrated seamlessly into the very fabric of the city, it’d feel incomplete without the addition of Stixx.
Opened twelve months back amid much hype and fanfare, it’s a place that captures the essence of New Warsaw: smart, sophisticated but also sassy and fun. Certainly, that applies once the day reaches cocktail o’clock. With the roof rolled back on the all-weather terrace, the feeling is of being somewhere truly international; that sensation is amplified by the cosmopolitan crowd, a diverse global menu and a style that effortlessly slips between restaurant, hangout, bar and – later on – club. Taking their place behind the decks, resident DJs shape the mood with grooves and beats that are right for the moment, lending Stixx the kind of vibey atmosphere you seek in the summer.
