Bistro Renoma

Restaurants 17 June 2015 0

***CLOSED*** Here’s a venue that suits all purposes at all times of day. Most of all, it’s a place that feels positive, a place where heart and mind work seamlessly together: that means breakfast to evening options – many of them gluten-free – including fab lunch deals and 60-day...
Powiśle Now

Powiśle Now

Features 21 November 2014 1

Once a decrepit no-man’s land, Powiśle has matured into the area all others aspire to be: welcome, you might say, to the future of Warsaw. (Text: Alex Webber | Photos: Kevin Demaria)  Not that far back in time the streets of central Powiśle were best skirted. Not because they were...
Tamka 43

Tamka 43

Restaurants 29 September 2014 0

You could call Tamka 43 a pioneer. Opened before Atelier Amaro conquered the country, Tamka’s launch came at a time when Warsaw was making a fine dining transition. Remember what came before? For the benefit of those that don’t, upmarket dining meant ploughing through a glazed duck set at...
A nuż widelec
***CLOSED*** My first visit to A nuż widelec hadn’t gone to plan – I’d been assisting on a photo shoot on a blazing hot day and just wanted a beer in the shade: and pay for it with plastic. But it wasn’t going to happen. “We’ve only been open...
Na Lato

Na Lato

Going Out 8 July 2014 0

Once derided as a hipster haunt, the twits have moved on, replaced instead by an increasingly on-trend crowd that’s all glinting watches and logo-clad bags. The expanse of greenery outside has installed it as one of Warsaw’s principal seasonal drinking zones. Na Lato ul. Rozbrat 44, tel. 692 280 094, open...
Kafe Zielony Niedzwiedź
Don’t be fooled by the city center postcode, Zielony Niedzwiedź is a destination restaurant that feels isolated from the world – no rolling up to the door via taxi here, instead diners sneak down a park pathway before arriving outside a modern block of brick and glass. Set amid the greenery,...
Vintage Store

Vintage Store

Shopping 26 December 2013 0

Living in Warsaw you might have noticed that the city is filled with thrift shops and second-hand stores. But finding something of real vintage quality and value is rare. But, the other day, while walking through Powiśle, I came across the Vintage Store. And though the name sounds banal,...
SAM

SAM

Blog 13 October 2013 0

Physically, SAM does not bear much resemblance to its elder more austere sibling: Café 6/12. Junior, for instance, gets oodles of light from the floor-to-ceiling doors. The look borrows from the commie theme; not the frumpy the-way-it-really-was design, but the glammed-up nostalgic sort. The all-white crockery also includes milk...

Dziurka od Klucza

Restaurants 13 October 2013 0

Some of us already knew that Powiśle has emerged as Warsaw’s ‘it’ neighborhood, but now it seems that the secret is out – the area is now bustling with newly-opened venues, most of an ambiguous nature – places that simultaneously fill the function of bar, café and restaurant. And...
Reykjavik District

Reykjavik District

Shopping 12 October 2013 0

Once you walk through the somewhat shabby main gate, veer to the left and walk up the staircase to enter the Reykjavik District. Reykjavik presents a very sophisticated collection of high-end suits and shirts designed by upcoming designer Olly Lindal. Olly and his wife opened the shop after moving...
