I've been going for about 10 years now, and not much has changed over that time - still a great, one of its kind place - you'll love it if you like a bit of an off-the-beaten-track local vibe. A super cozy venue, loads of...More

If you're in the mood to get drunk and robbed (in the random sequence), this is the place for you! ++Toilet is cosy

It’s a nice place with nice drinks, amazing design and friendly staff. The only little minus is that toilet door was not closing.

Really nice, cosy bar. The bartender there (I think he was the owner as well) was great and very helpful, despite us not knowing any Polish, and him not knowing a lot of English

Popped in here in the afternoon for a drink. Lots of character and great interior. Friendly service and nice bar. However, customers should not have too pay to use the toilet!
