Places to watch football and chill out in Warsaw

Hey there. I have recently moved over to Poland Warsaw, and am just getting settled. I will probably be here for a while so it'll be nice to find a few cool places to chill out. I went to Champions bars to watch some football but it isn't that great. Is there a place where you can watch football in a better bar?

Also how about just a nice bar to chill out in after work with a young student crowd.

I work in the centre so somewhere round here would be good.

Mentioned this to someone else last week, the best bars in Warsaw are the small bars just behind Nowy Swiat. Just go through any archway opposite Empik on Nowy Swiat and start exploring! They are all former little shops which look shut down but just try the doors, great bars behind each one. Just follow any group of people in that little enclave. A really nice friendly crowd, good music and not a telly in sight!. Excellent, cheap Chinese place there as well once hunger kicks in. Just chill and enjoy.

I suppose the footy/rugby thing is best served by Bradleys Irish Bar in the office block on Sienna called Warsaw Towers behind the Intercontinental Hotel.

Best place for all sports is Bar Below, they show all live Football games from the UK every week as well as the six nations rugby this month.

You're almost right. It's the best place to watch all sports except American football(although the season's finished now). Last time I went to Bar Below and asked them to put the American football on (after the plastic Barcelona fans had finished watching 'their' game), the owner of the bar was making loud comments about "What's this **** doing on the TV?". So I went to Jimmy Bradley's instead and watched the game with a good crowd of American expats and a group of Poles who play American football. Infinitely better.
