Foksal 19, Warsaw

19 Ul. Foksal
Poland 00-372
Tel: 48 60 276 2764's insider take:

Typical of the watering holes where Warsaw's new rich go to drink and dance, Foksal 19 is designed within an inch of its life. A translucent marble bar and lamps covered in stitched black leather set the visual tone; loud, anonymous Central European dance music fills the ears. But the building itself still has some elegance, with its high ceilings and original moldings—it feels like an old bank that's been converted to nighttime use. The crowd leans heavily toward blondes in their late 30s, unlike the younger crowd that tends to frequent the Nowy Swiat/Foksal strip. Upstairs is a nightclub where the pretense of conversation disappears and the typical Warsaw hip-wagging dance is practiced by all.

Open Mondays through Saturdays from 6 pm.
