Notes From Powiśle

Notes From Powiśle

Blog 30 June 2017 0

While Powiśle was once the bubbling epicenter of Warsaw’s flirtation with full-bearded hipsterdom, today the area has moved forward, gentrified and matured. This new, cultivated mentality is especially pronounced on Rozbrat, a highly aspirational street in the process of being infilled with smart brasseries and bistros. First, on any...

From the same owners as Monsieur Leon comes Krem and the difference could not be more pronounced. While the former is characterized by its rustic sense of simplicity, Krem has more of a swank Parisian look featuring monochrome floor tiles, marble-topped tables, flashes of artwork and retro-styled mirrors –...

***CLOSED*** Charming, cute, charismatic, etc. Found behind the bombastic Pl. Konstytucji, there’s a neighborly style to this cafe that elevates it above the local competition. Though the design is defined by its simplicity, the overriding cat motif lends a quirky slant to the overall appeal. Doing the rest is...

The unpronounceable name aside, this ranks as one of the more foreign-friendly bars you could wish for. Inspired by the owner’s passion for mountains and adventure, this large two-level space is adorned with Tibetan prayer flags, globes, photo exhibitions and a mural of a mountain conquering hero. Though clearly...

Sick and tired of being sick and tired? This two-level cubbyhole offers an easy way to cleanse and detox the body in this chilly, hungover month: cold-pressed from organic, locally sourced fruit and veg, find an array of juices lined up on parade in the fridge, as well as...
Cafe & Lounge Bar But Good Music First
Looking back, it’s been a pretty static year where the cafe scene is concerned. But away from the depressingly familiar sight of a new Starbucks or Costa, there have been some glimmers of hope: the impossibly long name aside, noteworthy features of this suburban star number a stunning David...

A friendly cafe with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for plenty of light to slant into the smart, brick-walled interiors. The drinks come from alternative brands such as Moon Brothers and John Lemon, though their main selling point is a cast-iron oven that’s used to cook-up jacket potatoes heaped with...

Measuring in at just 6 sq/m, Dobro’s claim to be Poland’s smallest cafe looks pretty irrefutable. But while their dinky size has won them plenty of publicity, this is more than just some flash-in-the-pan novelty act. Run by a cool Ukrainian couple who clearly love their job, this little...

And then there were two. Hot on the heels of Warsaw’s first Friends themed café comes another, this one found amid the concrete communist monoliths of Muranów. You wouldn’t call it a replica of the real thing, but there is at least an orange couch, some oriental-style rugs and...

When I think of Chmielna it’s always as Chmielna A and Chmielna B. The former is the wide pedestrian street most people are familiar with; the latter, the strip that runs behind it. In terms of contrast, the difference between the two couldn’t be more pronounced. Whereas Chmielna A...
