Syreni Śpiew If you go down to the woods today... featured

Searching for another location, the founders of Warszawa Powiśle sniffed out an old truffle in the forest and turned it into an absolute belter of a bar. It’s a pearl of modernist architecture, spread over three floors and hidden away from the street so they can afford to really ramp up the sound system – as they did for the seismic opening bash that rang in the year 2012.

Style and sophistication are the code words here, yet the atmosphere stays chilled and unpretentious. Catering for a well-heeled clientele, Syreni Śpiew packs enough whiskies to make a Scottish baron blush and their cocktails, served by bow-tied gentlemen no less, aren’t to be missed either. At the weekend, live musicians blast out a few numbers before the DJs muscle in and take control of the floor.

Ministerstwo Kawy Know your techniques

Gourmet coffee aficionados, your ears should be pricking up right about now… Why? Because Ministerstwo Kawy (translation: Ministry of coffee) needs to be at the top of your list of haunts in Warsaw, lest you be derided as nothing but a green-beaned pretender. Here, behind the white-tiled and wood-topped bar, some of the most experienced baristas in town expertly brew caffeinated concoctions using one of three techniques: Drip, Chemex and Aeropress (and they’ll be happy to elucidate the specifics of each). Once you’ve been hooked up, you can sink into a suede-covered sofa, perch on a stool in the window or commandeer yourself one of the thin-legged tables, and rest in the knowledge that you’re sipping on some of the city’s finest.
