Warsaw nightlife

Short-lived nightclubs dominate nighttime Warsaw, where willowy Polish girls dance in groups while admiring men ferry them drinks. There are a few knots where nightlife concentrates: Nowy Swiat is a pedestrian avenue that feels as if it were cleaned with a toothbrush; youngish, well-dressed crowds spill from bar to bar and onto the neighboring Foksal Street. In the city center, near the old Palace of Science and Culture, is another nightclub-heavy scene, as is the area around the city opera house. Less is not more here: Most upscale bars and clubs lay design elements such as mirrors and colored lights on thick, and just in case you weren't overwhelmed by the decor, the patrons, and the ubiquitous Eurodisco music, many spots broadcast the insidious "Fashion TV," showing endless loops of models on the catwalk. Drinks at the fancier places tend to run to around $5 to $6—not terrible by international standards, but typical of what's happened with Warsaw prices as Poland's conversion to the euro comes nearer.
