Podwale’s Bars and Books is a decadent cigar lounge and bar in Warsaw. Hosting Burlesque shows and themed evenings, this bar isn’t like any other around.

Podwale Bars and Books is an original New York lounge club that has been brought to Poland. With weekly shows and a dark, cosy, opium den style décor, you’ll have so much fun you’ll never want to leave. The ground floor of the British colonial themed bar has spacious seating arrangements and a tailor made bar. Soft leather couches sit comfortably next to an open fireplace, really making guests feel at home, especially in the cold winter months. The first floor however, is a plush cigar lounge with an optional patio if the weather is permitting. Cigars are sold here too and they are some of the world’s finest!

Podwale offers a huge range of drinks, from whiskey and Scotch, to some classy champagne. They import their beverages from around the world, including Germany, France, Spain and South Africa. Their drinks also include aged rums and vodkas. We suggest you try their speciality ‘corsair’ which is rum, sugar syrup, peach, bitter plum, fresh lime and Chambord. They also specialise in Martinis and Old Fashioneds. It’s important to mention that Podwales is about entertainment too. They host themed nights weekly such as ‘lady’s night’, ‘whiskey night’ and some pretty exclusive burlesque shows. Be sure to book the burlesque show in advance because you do not want to miss out.
