What is so special about this place? People, interior design, meatless menu, vinyl records and an outside garden at the Różyckiego marketplace.
The Brzeskis simply had to end up in Brzeska Street. Katarzyna and Jacek managed to create one of the most climatic places in Warsaw – Praska.
One day life in Kabaty became mundane, they did not feel any neighbourly bonds and missed social life. Katarzyna runs a family construction company in Praga so she is familiar with this area. They decided on a new apartment here. They were also looking for a place in Brzeska Street but since they are both dog lovers they needed more greenery. The choice fell on Praga I – a real estate designed by husband-and-wife team Helena and Szymon Syrkus. It did not disappoint them as it proved to be indeed well planned. The next step was to find a local bar. And this is how they met Michał “Misiek” Wieczorek who ran his homey bar in Wileńska Street 3. Unfortunately, as it often happens in Praga the building was in a poor state so he was forced to close his business.
They laugh that there was no other option than to open a new place with Misiek. They found a perfect spot. Frankly speaking, only now we can see how fabulous it is. The historic buildings in Brzeska Street or at the Rożyckiego marketplace fell into dereliction. Renovation required much effort. The interior was made with the help of their neighbour Monika Rakowska who is a set designer and artist. Wintertime was difficult but with the arrival of spring Praska started to flourish.
Tourists, locals, and visitors of the Open Ząbkowska festival started visiting this place (the restaurant is adjacent to Pyzy Flaki Gorące and Pallone Icecream shop). Praska is valued among vegetarians because every day you can eat different, simple, Polish dishes (there are even meatless duck and pork chops).
The outside garden on the premises of the Różyckiego marketplace turned out to be a total blast. It is arranged and cultivated by Monika. The interior design will take your breath away. We like Friday parties during which you can play music from your vinyl records brought from home. No Youtube party but instead music from vinyls. Additionally, if you bring your own vinyl record you will get beer for free. It is hard to describe the atmosphere of this place, you have to feel it.
