If there’s anybody who knows how to party, it’s the Polish. Whether it’s vodka and gherkins or gallons of local beer sloshing through you, by the end of a night out with the locals here you’re sure to have made plenty of new friends, as well as crafted a hangover for the ages. And nowhere is this more true than the capital city, Warsaw, which is both a stunningly beautiful place to wander round during the day, and a city chock full of hidden nightlife gems. If you’re thinking of heading to the city and want to make sure you have the best nights out possible, then read ahead for our guide to the best venues in the Polish capital!
If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, then you’ll adore Podwale Bar and Books, one of the city’s most luxurious bars. Stocked with the finest whisky and cigars in the country, the atmosphere is refined yet relaxed, with classy decor that’s reminiscent of the sort of places where powerful people make big decisions. As you’d expect, there are plenty of books in this bar, which is spread over two different floors and located right in the centre of Warsaw’s Old Town, making it incredibly easy to get to. In the evenings there’s also live music, and occasionally an exciting burlesque show to entertain the guests, so you won’t be wanting for entertainment as you make your way through the cocktail list. A must-visit for any traveller heading through the Polish capital.

Translating roughly to “confusion”, this bar is known for its unique ambience and decorations, which are bright, colourful, and full of charm. With that said, even with all of its quirks it wouldn’t be on this list if it weren’t for the incredible drink selection, as well as its friendly, knowledgeable staff, and the fact that locals know it as a brilliant spot for a drink or three. While some of the cocktails come pre-mixed, they’re still delicious, and all it really means is that you won’t have to wait too long between drinks, so you can indulge to your heart’s content. That, plus a convenient location and great music, makes this a spot well worth visiting.
If you want classic cocktails served by some of the most talented mixologists in Warsaw, then Klar Cocktail Bar is the spot you need to hit. Situated right in the beating heart of Old Town, it benefits from a cute little outside area so you can enjoy your drinks outside on sunny days and warm summer evenings. However, that’s not all: there’s a special speakeasy room, as well as a game room and wine cellar, so if you’re not keen for a cocktail you’ll be able to crack open a bottle of high quality wine. Don’t worry about drinking too much, either: there’s delicious pizza crafted by talented chefs being served throughout the day, so you can easily line your stomach with a tasty sourdough crust.
A combination of Polish classics and Mediterranean small plates (believe us, it works), this stunning restaurant is both ingeniously unique and fantastically placed. While the food and drink is definitely the best thing about this venue, if you dine here you’ll also get to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous view, as it’s on the sixth floor right in the middle of the city, and has both a large terrace and glass walls. The tasting menu is definitely worth exploring, especially with the wine pairings, so make sure you go with an empty stomach!

Dinner and dancing are rolled into one in this Latin American-themed eatery, which turns into one of Warsaw’s most exclusive venues at night. The food will make you think you’re traversing South and Central America instead of this European nation, but the attitude will remind you that you’re still in the fun-loving Polish capital. During dinner there are dancers and other entertainers, so as you fill your cups with wine you’ll be captivated by brilliant performances. And, after the food and drink is all done, then it’s your chance to hit the dance floor with one of the best crowds in the city. Baila is incredibly popular (and for a good reason), so make sure you use our concierge service to guarantee your spot for the evening.

With a stunning view of the city, Level 27 (located, unsurprisingly, on the 27th floor) is worth it just to see the skyline, but thankfully it’s so much more than just a pretty panoramic view. Chic, classy, and sexy, this nightclub is one of Warsaw’s most exclusive, and is both beautifully furnished and blessed with a great soundsystem. The music varies depending on the night, but you’ll be treated to everything from club classics to the newest hits, all while an astounding light show hits you. If you’re feeling fancy, then use our concierge service to get yourself a private table, where you’ll be showered with champagne and given the VIP treatment.
