New Asfalt in Tamka Street is a real blast! You will not find the shop in Kredytowa Street anymore as it has moved here for good. And it is a good choice since Tamka Street, Powiśle and Solec are getting more and more interesting these days. It is also a popular route if you want to get from the city centre to the Vistula river.
Asfalt Coffee & Vinyl is not a regular shop but also a pretty spacious café. There are even two separate counters for ordering coffee and buying records. There is a wide range of hip-hop music released by Asfalt Records (O.S.T.R., Otsochodzi or Taco Hemingway), but not only. Rap is dominant here however, there is jazz, electro, and good Polish music as well. Apart from vinyl records, there are also CDs and photo albums.
It is nice to see in the café porcelain mugs designed by Fenek, Asfalts’s neighbours from Tamka Street and custom made plates resembling vinyl records crafted by Ani Ani Studio. Kommunikat Studio is responsible for visual identification of the place. The café is open from 8:30 AM and serves fine coffee, patisserie by Formy Proste and sandwiches by Aromat. It offers also meetings with artists and culinary events, for example, Kwaśnie Jabłko cider testing.
This vinyl and coffee concept introduced in Warsaw by Hałas has won our hearts. We will be regulars here for sure.
