Basically, a big pub with a big beer selection and amazing opening hours (0-24). Very ticker friendly with micro samples for 1 PLN. No beer list and you more than less must ask the bartender to narrow in your choice of beer if not too familiar with polish breweries. I tried a few randomly beers but where not to impressed and somehow, we did not feel to stick around for a long time here. Can’t really put my finger on exactly why, but the hole palace gave me some kind of feeling of sitting in an impersonally shopping center bar.
Just an awful place, but you kind of have to go. Everything about it is terrible except that’s you can tick a lot of beers here. Terrible music, uncaring service, no printed draft list (you just have to squint to see the taps - sometimes not the easiest to figure out, especially if you don’t speak Polish and the letter combinations are strange to you), and shit glassware. BUT: you can order any beer in about 1 oz. / 25mL pours for 1 PLN, which is hard to pass up. So I had to stop. Beer list isn’t great, but I found a couple interesting things. The other Piw Paw is marginally better.
The thing, that for diletants and untappd addicts places like this are something, but it just stands against everything I believe. I believe in diversity - what's the point of huge tap number, if mainly they are just some kind of pale ale and stronger stout variations. What's the point of judging a beer after you only sipped 50 grams of it? And so on. Meh
I was reluctant to go to any of the Piw Paw outlets after reading all the bad reviews they get, but I needed a couple of beers that were only on tap here, so I made a pre-airport stop in the morning. Glad I did as well, because the place was fairly quiet, with a vinyl sale going on that occupied most of the room. Which, yes, was rather shabby and tackily decorated. Probably not surprising considering the nighttime clientele. Grabbed the beers I needed from the 50+ taps and rated them at leisure. About half of the beers here are from Bazyliszek, which are rather hit-and-miss in my experience, though they do like to keep it interesting. Tap rotation and freshness are probably also an issue. Definitely visit ontap.pl beforehand to determine which beers you need as the taps are indeed poorly labeled. All in all, if you get here early in the day I think this place can provide some early morning ticking fun.
Visit on 15-Nov-2017. 57 taps and a massive bottle selection. Taps were poorly labeled. Staff didn't seem very knowledgeable or responsive. Very much a spit and sawdust kind of place - poorly lit; only worth the visit for the beer.
Slabe miejsce w centrum Warszawy, sporo kranow ale niewiele butelkowych importowanych piw. Troche naszego craftu, standardy belgijskie i czeskie. Lambickow oprocz popularnych Lindemansow nie uraczy sie. RIS chyba nie bylo, no ale Pinta Eisbock bylo. Tyle ze astronomiczne ceny. Nic nie kupilem, spory zawod
Strange place this, plenty of choice across the 60 odd taps but the place was dead on a Sunday afternoon and very quiet. Music was playing through the barmans phone but at one point stopped while he answered a call. A table of people in the corner were having fun too, one girl was sleeping in the chair. The prices were about average for Warsaw but the quality wasn’t great and I’m not sure how fresh some of the taps would have been, Also, not one toilet door had a lock on it and a few could have used a clean. I’d not visit this place again.
