25 PLN for concert + party, 10 PLN for party only
Dzik, ul. Belwederska 44a
If you still haven’t partied enough this year, the end of January is a good date to diarise. On the 30th, head to Dzik for a carnival party: it will start with Laura Palmer Cover Story’s concert (you know, the cool singing ladies with a good sense of humour), which will be followed by Blekot and Burn Reynolds dj sets. If you haven’t been to Dzik yet, you simply must- it’s a cool party space, which kinda looks like your grandma’s empty house, but all the china figurines are replaced with bottles of booze. If you don’t feel like a concert, you can always join the party later on. We recommend!

I admit that I didn’t give credit to this restaurant in my first months in Warsaw but I had the opportunity to try it while in Poznan and I’m glad I did it! With restaurants in cities like Gdansk, Lodz or Poznan, Manekin usually always has a queue in Warsaw, even during cold days. And the reason is easy to understand, specially when we consider that Poles like pancakes or nalezniki so much. The price/ quality relation is what makes this place worth visiting. With a cozy, vintage and very artistic decoration the place surprised me for its considerable space, which several good restaurants lack- but it’s that what makes Manekin even better. Along with the decoration comes the food which basically is tons of pancakes!
