Praga in East Warsaw is where its at !
Apparently Praga (Poland) - an suburb in East Warsaw, is the new edgy, arty clubbing paradise of Europe. From tattoed bartenders, restaurants offering modern Polish (MoPo) cuisine( unheard of under communism), factories-turned-art-galleries-turned-clubbing-spaces liberally sprinkled with post-post-modern irony. It was long considered off limits for Western Tourists and its now enjoying a bit of a revival. Its definitely not Old Town and there is considerable poverty, tower blocks and an edge, but thats what make it different. Here are a couple of pictures and a link to the great Praga club and venue Fabryka Trzciny www.fabrykatrzciny.pl/
