Dziki Lokator

Going Out 11 May 2016 0

The principal role of Dziki Lokator? Tough one: it’s a pizzeria, a café, bistro and bar. But with the doors closing usually no later than 8 p.m., its function as the latter is often overlooked. That’s something of a mistake, especially in the summer months when the park location...

Hydrozagadka

Going Out 29 March 2016 0

Set out in the wildlands of Praga, consider Hydrozagadka as the heart of unforced cool. Known for its alternative music scene, the low-ceiling and tight, crowded nature of it generate an electrifying atmosphere where the audience and band become one. Walking a fine line between industrial and straight out...

I’ll tell you what I live about this city. You think you know the place inside out and then, bang, it pulls a rabbit out of the hat and leaves you bamboozled. That happened to me in Bródno the other week. I mean no offence to the people that...
Pantai

Pantai

Restaurants 18 November 2015 0

With its surprisingly classy tropical look, the primetime to visit the beachside Pantai is summer. Not much use knowing that now, of course. So the question is, does it work out of season? That’s a resounding yes. Beautiful cocktails play their role, but so too does a succinct menu...
Dwa Osiem

Dwa Osiem

Going Out 16 October 2015 0

If you thought the Praga area was starting to lose its edge and originality then you couldn’t have been more wrong. Take Dwa Osiem, a way cool bike shop serving a second purpose as a minimalist café with a classroom aesthetic. We’ve seen all that before, you might say,...
Praga Museum
Don’t bite me, but visiting the new Praga Museum was not something I was looking forward to. Firstly, the area doesn’t thrill me: the whole stop-start gentrification process has, IMO, benefited no-one and left the district caught in an uncomfortable vacuum. Secondly, I don’t like the direction that Polish...

W Oparach Absurdu

Going Out 1 September 2015 0

Hidden under Persian rugs, velvety drapes and reclaimed antiques, some still refer to it as The Spider Bar in reference to the giant tarantula that once hung from the wall. There’s an air of louche 60s living here, and it gets weirder when bands with names like the Bum...
