Live Band at Syreni Śpiew

If house/electro is not your kind of thing but you still feel like partying, choose Syreni Śpiew. A beautifully restored modernist pavillion in the middle of a park is a rather posh place with fantastic atmosphere, though. On Sarurday evenings a live band (bass, guitar, piano, sax, vocals) plays their music and the place turns into one big dancefloor. Between 6 and 10pm all drinks are 50% off.
