Opera House
“Building located at Teatralny Square 1 in Warsaw. The seat of the National Opera, as well as the Polish National Ballet, two of the three stages of the National Theater and the Theater Museum. The building was erected in the years 1825-1833. Destroyed in 1939 and 1944, it was rebuilt, transformed and enlarged in 1947–1965 while maintaining the original facade from Teatralny Square.”

Nightclub
$$$
“This sparse and bunkerlike club based on the Berlin underground techno model is situated in a grand old city centre townhouse, just seconds away from the landmark ‘palm tree’. The music delves deep into the murky world of all aspects of electronica but they’re a pretty radical and experimental group of folks, so you never know what musical journey they’ll whisk you through. Three dancefloors, including the newly installed outdoor patio space (the neighbours will love that one), three bars (cocktails included) and a chillout room make up this hugely popular venue. Keeping things enigmatic and secretive, they have a strict “no photos/no smartphone” policy and some pretty cryptic advertising clips which tell you nothing.”

“Legendary, one of the oldest clubs in Warsaw. Only for people that know what they are looking for. This place is pitch dark, plays mostly deep or hard techno and is know for holding long lasting parties. Very often, people leave many many hours after sunrise.”
