If you're in the mood to get drunk and robbed (in the random sequence), this is the place for you! ++Toilet is cosy

It’s a nice place with nice drinks, amazing design and friendly staff. The only little minus is that toilet door was not closing.

Really nice, cosy bar. The bartender there (I think he was the owner as well) was great and very helpful, despite us not knowing any Polish, and him not knowing a lot of English
