Our carefully picked recommendations for the coming weekend in Warsaw:

FRIDAY, 7 April

This Polish trio is one of the modern electronic bands we can be proudest of. They started gaining local popularity already back in 2008 but it was not until 2011 when their smash hit Cairo (released by Discotexas and remixed by Moullinex) hit the dancefloors across Europe that they really got an almost-cult-status. Do you already feel you want to see them live?:) Don’t miss this gig and put your dancing shoes on!

Grand Bazar

How about a visit to a pre-war department store which, at least for a day, will turn into a bazaar selling clothes, accessories, jewellery and shoes from around 100 young Polish brands and independent designers?

Beer deserves its own festival!

Especially if it's Polish beer. If you poked your nose out of the Old Town already, you must have seen the dozens of craft beer bars all around the city (admittedly, two very nice ones are in the Old Town itself, on Nowomiejska street). If you want to explore the wonders of Polish brewmaking, don't miss this event. You'll get the chance to try the craziest combinations - here's what the organizers have to say: "We present all faces of the Polish craft beer movement – we're inviting brewers and homebrewers, bloggers, beer aficionados and hopheads. With no bullshit, we'll show you the new school of brewing." Convinced? 😉 You have time to decide if you're attending until Saturday, as the festival is a 3-day affair.

Tonight they will be joined by Cumbia Mać!-a Chilian-Spanish-Polish 10 members band. The venue is worth a visit itself - it's a beautiful pre-war villa.
