New Years Eve in Warsaw (city sightseeing, restaurants)

I am travelling to Warsaw for the first time between 26.12.2012 and 02.01.2013 to spend NY Eve.

Since I am collecting information on what to do and where to go, I would appreciate, if you write me clubs, restaurants and bars to go.

I like clubs and bars with good music and handsome people.

I like typical country restaurants in which I can taste typical polish food.

It would be also very nice, if you like to meet with me and we go together around the city. All I can offer is very good mood, great humor and a peace of cake.

Thanks in advance for your answers,

Merged: Sylwester (New Year's Eve) Warsaw, Poland 2012/13

Hi - Does anyone know the best place to be for NYE in central Warsaw for the following (1 Expat, 2 Tourist Friends from London, UK - all young-minded 45 year olds) -

1 - Nice traditional bar in the old town for a drink about 8pm, then

2 - To a traditional restaurant with entertainment from 9pm, then

3 - To see the fireworks (if any) at midnight.

We don't mind spending a bit, but not five-star hotel prices.

I've been google-ing for ages in English and Polish but nothing stands out.

Many thanks in advance.

For meeting expats for a few drinks try this place:

For Sylwester try this company

Thanks for the info. I did pop into the Regina but it seemed as if it would be for older folk. Do you think Bistro in Rynek Starego Miasto is any good? They have a Charlie Chaplin pantomine with dinner (don't ask). We wanted to go to U Fukiera but it is closed on NYE. Also where are the main fireworks in Warsaw at midnight?

As usual I'll be going somewhere in a group - venue to be decided. As usual, the bar owners are saying that they're nearly sold out and we should book now, wonderful buffet, dancing, whatever but in the past those places have usually been disappointing. The best places to go in Warsaw tend to be the ones that don't make too much fuss.

And of course the concert in plac Konstytucji is usually good.

So we decided on Bistro in the Old Town Square for New Year's Eve. Mainly because of the bizarre entertainment promised - the Charlie Chaplin Pantomine (don't ask) and the great menu on offer. My two close friends flew from London to be here in Warsaw with me.

Well ... Don't bother next year. The confirmed reservation (by phone and email) was lost, we were stuck in the 'VIP corner' where the front door normally is and could not see the pianist, the food was low quality (mainly cold food - in winter?) etc. When the entertainment didn't materialise I asked what happened and they said 'haven't you heard Charlie Chaplin was taken to hospital'. You couldn't make it up.

When I asked how we would be refunded in part they couldn't fathom out why I was asking (even though it was included in the ticket). The only good part was the absolutely charming and caring Polish girl serving us - she is a star and a credit to the restaurant. But the 300 PLN for the event was a waste of money.

Perhaps you have no idea how in works nowadays in PL

Hot dishes are served well after midnight :)

Don't talk b+llox, GGram has every right to complain - he expects service which unfortunately does not exist in many establishments in Warszawa.

Merged: New Year in Warsaw!

So a lot of changes in life (long story) prompted me to revisit Warsaw this New Year! Love the place, the people, the culture, but essentially the warmth of the people, and would like to know where to head to for a spectacular night for New Year's Eve/Day! I've read that most places are ticket-only entrance so it's important for a fan and tourist to book the best place, man! What advice can you give?
