The Poles certainly enjoy a drink or two, so finding a watering hole in the country’s largest city is an easy task. Deciding which bar is the one for you is a little harder. Whether it’s the type of beverage that’s most important to you, the venue, or the atmosphere, The Culture Trip has you covered with its guide to the top 10 nightspots in Warsaw.
With almost 100 varieties of piwo (beer) on tap, and around 200 more in bottles, Piw Paw is the ultimate destination for beer lovers in Warsaw. This staggering range is mostly made up of Polish craft beers, but other microbreweries from around the world are also represented. Customers can sample any beer before deciding on which brews they want to have a full glass of. They also serve cider straight from the barrel. With all this choice, it’s a good thing it never closes.

The unique setting and atmosphere of W Oparach Absurdu is intended to evoke that of Krakow’s bohemian Kazimierz district, a place where the bar’s proprietor, an actress and sculptor by trade, spent time during her studies. Antique armchairs, carpets, and lampshades are dotted around, murals cover the walls, the lighting is dim, and obscure figurines stand atop the bar that serves a bevy of different spirits as well as beer from Poland, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic. The ambiance is such that you wouldn’t be surprised to find a disheveled fortune-teller huddled in the corner asking to read your palm.
