Column Bar

Going Out 2 July 2015 0

Just the look of Column Bar sweeps you off your feet; there’s something breathlessly classy about it, like you’ve just entered Gatsby’s ballroom. You want to order a pyramid of champagne and dance on their piano. Behave, and order a cocktail instead. For a taste of the classics, the...

Banja Luka

Restaurants 1 July 2015 0

Lots of clunky timber and imported ceramics set the scene at this eatery, a Balkan stalwart that’s known for its economical pricing structure and bulky portions.

Peruse rock’n’roll swag that includes Joplin’s blouse, Prince’s guitar and Shakira’s pants. Hard Rock Cafe  ul. Złota 59 (Złote...

Sunday With Chopin
The first Chopin concerts were organized in Łazienki Park in 1959, shortly after the composer’s monument was rebuilt and put back in its place near the park’s main entrance next to the Belweder Palace. The monument itself has had a troubled history; the idea to raise a statue for...
