Concierge.com's insider take:
Housed in what feels like a concrete bunker in a maze of courtyards off Nowy Swiat is another speed of nightlife. Named after the tourist shops of the Soviet era that accepted only foreign culture, Pewex feels like a trip back through the '70s and '80s behind the Iron Curtain. The setting is a low-slung pair of rooms with murky porthole windows and dark brown 1970s graphic wallpaper as well as yellow globular lamps and plastic furniture. It's dark and intimate, with a relaxed crowd enjoying the DJ's choice of obscure electroclash. This place is a worthy alternative to the frantic strutting and fronting of Warsaw's main clubs.
