After a brief lull in action, the crossroads on the corner of Wilcza and Poznańska is back on the front end of cool after a sprinkling of launches have lent it new gusto. And for the best of the bunch, look no further than Zkurczybyk: suitably tricked out for...

Notes: Rest. Baczewskich

Well let’s ask this – just who on earth doesn’t enjoy eating in a palace. Seemingly designed to make visitors go ‘woah’, Baczewskich is nothing if not a fully-fledged exercise in unrestrained fancy: a composition of plush fabrics, gleaming glassware, framed certificates and contemporary extravagance, the high impact visuals...

Run, you suspect, as a form of self-expression, Argentinean chef Martin Gimenez Castro has injected his passion and personality into Ceviche Bar, a venue whose name is something of a misnomer – sure there’s ceviche (and magnificent it is), but there’s also so much more. Cooking beneath a mural...
Valentine’s: Drinks For Two
With dinner done comes the next Valentine’s quandary – where to head for post-prandial drinks? 12 on 14 ul. Noakowskiego 16 For a country with such a noble jazz tradition the paucity of dedicated clubs in the capital feels like an aberration. Doing a sterling job of filling that...

If there’s one thing we just love about researching our Best of Warsaw issue (coming soon, don’t you worry!), it’s the chance it affords us to visit old, established favorites such as Ale Wino. Their story, while not exactly rags to riches, does have a feel-good ring to it:...

Mamma Marietta’s new address offers a form that’s bright, engaging and always energetic. Room One: dazzling whites and an open kitchen patrolled with vigor by chef Andrea Scarantino. Room Two: darker, a little more moody and whispery for dates. Both are places in which you’re happy to idle. Start...

Set in a 200-year-old carriage house within a secretive courtyard, Wozownia started life looking raw and ramshackle – in parts, it still does, but that’s not to say improvements haven’t been made, not least to a Lynch-esque winter garden that feels brilliantly dream-like. Drinks-wise, kick-ass cocktails sell just as...
Wallpaper Hails Warsaw Restaurant
Warsaw’s Opasły Tom restaurant found itself plunged into the global spotlight in January after being shortlisted by Wallpaper* magazine in the restaurant category of its annual design awards. Though losing out to Europe’s only underwater restaurant, Norway’s much-acclaimed Under, the eatery nonetheless found itself heaped with praise by the...

Going Out 11 January 2020 0

Quite when it happened we’ve no idea, but somewhere along the line Koko & Roy have blossomed into one of the Insider’s favorite weekend nights. With its quirky-cool design (Bourdain in the toilet, Princess Leah on the walls), multinational crowd and funky sounds, it’s the kind of place you...
