About Breweries

Nearby Wola

This quarter of the city, determined by Grzybowska Street to the south and Krochmalna Street to the north, is worthy of Warsaw by all means. And the way it changed in the blooming period and the way it fell to the lowest depths in the post-war turmoil may amaze even lovers and experts of the city. From the "promised land", which was aim for everyone longing for a better job and fate came, to the "Warsaw’s wild west", known from the Tyrmand's novel, where it was easier to lose than to find happiness.

For many years this part of Warsaw's Wola, which is closest to Śródmieście Północ, was an area almost completely forgotten by the residents of Warsaw. Hidden from their eyes and as if absent from their consciousness. Neglected and ignored. Today it is returning to its rightful place thanks to Warsaw Breweries, which will once again fill the area with creative energy and joy of life.

The past of this place comes full circle, because once again you will be able to drink beer brewed on site, but also have a great meal, take care of yourself and find respite from everyday life. After many year, Warsaw is regaining now this part of its organism for itself and for you. Rebuilt, put to use and sincerely dedicated to the residents and guests of our city, but first things first.

From the best brewery in Europe...

 

For years, Warsaw looked upon this place with pride. It was here, in 1846, that the Haberbusch and Schiele brewery was founded and quickly became the capital's "promised land". The brewery, the largest in the Kingdom of Poland and one of the most important on the brewing map of Europe, operated until World War II. It was an unquestionable icon of local entrepreneurship and a place  provided a better future of its employees and well-paid the Warsaw’s residents.

World War II completely devastated this area. Skeletons of bombed tenement houses took away the beauty of this former pride of the city. The post-war fate of the area was of no concern to anyone, and although the brewery itself continued to operate (changing names and owners), and in the years of the deepest socialism it produced coca-cola under American license (sic!), it eventually collapsed, and with it the whole area fell into oblivion.

Fortunately, life abhors a vacuum.

...to a vibrant new urban space

Echo Investment spotted the potential in the devastated and abandoned area of the former Warsaw Breweries. In this place you could feel the vibrant heart of the city - it just needed to be woken up again. The great awakening and the largest revitalization in the capital began three years after the acquisition of the plot, in 2017.  As complicated as it is beautiful, the neighborhood's past inspired the architects and designers responsible for this concept revitalizing the city, located between Grzybowska, Wronia, Chłodna and Krochmalna Streets.

The deep respect towards the past dictated that this place should be named Warsaw Breweries. In this way, we pay tribute to the land that hospitably welcomed a new, impressive in size and diversity part of the urban fabric.

The work on the project lasted 7 years. Not surprisingly, its functionality and design have been well thought out. It is easy to find your way around Warsaw Breweries, although - considering the size and number of objects, squares, passages, paths and levels - you can also successfully and intentionally get lost here, or at least hide from the boring everyday life.

Warsaw's Wola district is gaining a beautiful, open and friendly place for everyone. Residential buildings, office buildings, as well as city squares and new streets have filled the quarter, which even in the times of industrial prosperity was a city area carefully guarded by janitors, unavailable to non-employees.

The revitalized buildings of the former brewery - the historic Malthouse, the Laboratory, Villa Schiele and the 170-year-old cellars of Leżakownia - remind us of the former glory of this place.

The streets and green squares of Warsaw Breweries smell of bread baked on site, freshly ground coffee and a wood-fired grill. Carefully designed interiors tempt with an offer of delicious breakfasts and dishes from almost all corners of the world. Here you can feed your senses with smells and flavors of Greek, Mediterranean, Adriatic, Asian cuisine, as well as Spanish and of course our Polish cuisine at its best.

Fans of sweets may delight their eyes and palates with unique desserts, pralines and handmade ice-creams, and if you crave stronger sensations, divine coffee and fabulous drinks wait you here. The craft brewery of the Kumpel Group builds a symbolic bridge between the past and the future of this place, restoring the brewing tradition of Grzybowska Street.

If you prefer to fulfil your potential in the kitchen and eat in, you will also find a specialized delicatessen in Warsaw Breweries, where you can buy the best ingredients – from here and from distant Asia.

At your service there are workshops and salons of recognized Warsaw artists representing the guild of hairdressers and barbers. Here you can take care of make-up, nails and style from head to toe.

And if you get tired of all the excitement or want to rest after the culinary feast, you will find plenty of open space represented by as many as five public squares: the bustling Malthouse Market with a fountain and benches suspended in a birch forest, the quiet Laboratorium Courtyard, the green heart of Warsaw Breweries, i.e. the Central Garden towering over Leżakownia (the Storage Cellars) and the Lower Square, the Breweries Gate Square welcoming guests entering from Grzybowska Street, and the Breakfast Square hidden in the residential part at Krochmalna Street.

Here you will feast your eyes on a variety of colors, structures and textures of everything around you. The main promenade of Warsaw Breweries - Haberbusch i Schielego Street - will stop your eyes thanks to the unusual post-industrial pipeline and urban graffiti that will soon decorate its entire length.  

Yes, this new symbol of the flourishing of modern Warsaw can appeal to everyone.
