Panorama Bar & Lounge

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "It's enough to make you jump!"

Quote:
Panorama Bar is the highest hotel bar in Europe supposedly, well located in the centre of the city at the top of the Hotel Marriott it overlooks the Palace of Culture and looks down below onto the streets, making the cars look like insects and people as unimportant dots. There's quite a contrast in fact because most of the clientelle think of themselves as extremely important, many of them are indeed high-flyers. The chap who accumulated a 300zl bill and then did a runner while we were there was certainly of importance to the security guards! The poor bloke was probably just doing what any sane person would do on receiving the bill because you'd be hard pushed to find a more expensive beer...Read More

Trend Pub

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "No cards, no business!"

Quote:
Christmas shopping has been proven to be thirsty work, so it was little wonder that my first attempt last year landed me in a pub opposite one of Warsaw's shopping malls - Arkadia. Everywhere was relatively busy, So I decided to head for a place that I'd seen numerous times and that always looked relatively quiet.I should probably point out that this is not a very easy place to find, located below flats, it's part of a sparsely sprinkled business precinct on the bottom ground. It's opposite a popular shopping mall but you'd walk past it and never notice it because it's tucked away under a sort of rectangular concrete arch and they make very little effort to advertise it.I'm no...Read More

Florian Restauracja

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A place for a feast"

Quote:
Florian is a two tier restaurant and pub located in the centre of Warsaw. The street it's on - Chlodna was at the centre of the Jewish ghetto and until recently the street was pretty run down, its fortunes more or less completely turned around by the award winning pub Chlodna 25. The part of the street where you can find Florian has recently been pedestrianised and is starting to become a trendy area to go dining in. Located in a big building opposite the church and next to the fire station, Florian almost acts like a gatekeeper to the road.The restaurant's lower floor which is actually up the stairs on the first floor of the building is the main restaurant, the lower level being a Fireman...Read More

Spotkanie

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "An eating meeting"

Quote:
Spotkanie which translates to 'meeting' is a restaurant located in the Zoliborz district of Warsaw, located on a road heading away from Plac Wilsona towards the Wisla River in an area fairly free of competition. It just so happens to be a place that I pass when walking from the metro station Plac Wilsona to a graphic designer colleague who I meet from time to time. The grubby mannequin in the doorway has often intrigued me, so one evening when passing by, I decided to pay it a visit with another friend.The decor is the first thing that grabs your attention. It has, I imagine some similarities to a pre war Warsaw jazz cafe. People in to modern styles may not like it but personally I though...Read More

Bazyliszek

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "More hassle than basil!"

Quote:
A lot of my restaurant reviews are from local neighbourhoods in Warsaw that you are unlikely to come across as a tourist. The probability of you coming in to contact with Bazyliszek is in fact very likely. With a prime location on the Old Town Square and more affordable prices than its competitors its one of several restaurants owned by the same guy that owns the incredibly popular U Szwejka. Basyliszek too can be very crowded at times, the three floor building able to cater to hundreds of people simultaneously, in theory at least. For a while it was a regular Friday haunt for my colleagues who would head there int he evening after playing football. Personally, I failed to see the attracti...Read More
