The splendidly titled 'Le Madame' is certainly one of Warsaw's more intriguing underground hangouts. You'll find it squirreled away on ul. Freta. Inside, expect eccentric decor and even more eccentric clientele. It's a groovy place for art exhibitions and there'll be plenty of funky tunes emanating from the speakers too. Opening hours are very congenial for this part of town, kicking off at 4 and winding up at 3 in the morning - all the way to the crack of dawn at weekends.

Is there any new Le Madame yet? And why is it "le" madame? Shouldn't it be La Madame? ;)

What a shame this place was closed down! Will they try and re-open it elsewhere in Warsaw?

Well, all good things must always come to an end(even relationships). I was present at the closing sessions of lema. It was a great atmosphere. people taking the day off work to make a stand(for what they believe in) and to be united in front of such strong adversity. Last weekend (8/4/06) There was a stand in front of Rarusz(city hall), DVD amongst the speeches played of the last weeks events before the final shut down early on a friday morning. We all will have good memories of Lema. Besides Warsaw needs(every city) a venue with a bit of originality. Otherwise it gets boring very quickly.

Malkovich to the rescue!!!! (He's donating mad cash to help with Le Madame's bills.) Will it be enough to keep this funky spot open? Stay tuned!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you're hoping to visit Le Madame you've left it too late! The authorities closed it down, for not paying debts... although conveniently they happened to have it in for this famously liberal hangout!

LONG LIVE LE MADAME! FIGHT TILL THE END! the fate of this club rests in the hands of a few who will protect it forever...

le madame was the best place in warsaw!! it's closed now because it was to controversial for our conservative administration..
Frankie from United States Reply
If memory serves me correctly, this is one of the coolest spots in the world. Mad laid back attitude and funky beats. Met some cool people, drank a lot and eat some grilled cheese samwidges. and then.. Twas a good night.
Slinkster from United Kingdom Reply
After all the hype i was a bit disappointed. Hardly any tranvestites, wackos, naked women or even vaguely alternative people. Still venue was good, and music wasn't bad - quite harsh at times, but it was electro after all. Overall a good night, but fell short of great (heard fridays are better - we went on a saturday)

This is the best place I have ever seen in my life : the place of all discussions, of all meetings ... 10 august 2005.
Barny from United Kingdom Reply
This place must play some of the weirdest music. The other night I was wandering about looking for the toilets and discovered a band playing in one of the miriad of basement rooms. All dressed up in halloween masks they played the funkiest industrial post-punk noise I have ever heard! Do not miss this place if you have any interest in anything countercultural.
naoh from France Reply
this club is one of the best I ever been, this club should never closed ! remember 10th August 2005 - Le Madame - Warsaw
frankie from United States Reply
are they still trying to close this place? i strongly recommend coming by here on your visit to warsaw. if you've ever been to seattle or austin and liked it - you'll dig this place.
djgap from Poland Reply
even though i am the resident dj @ lemadame, i still believe this is a venue which breeds creativity, belonging to a community, lastly anyone and everyone is given an opportunity to express themselves. Honestly, the city do not have any reason to close a place like le madame dow. It is getting personal. The have come up with a reason, a new road through the club. I ask what good is that street and compared to peoples livelyhood?.
Willem from Netherlands Reply
Fu*in brilliant. I entered the old greenhouse, looked for a bar and found it. The next moment I had a Mad Dog (Wodka, Sirup, Tobasco) in front of me from my bar-neighbour and immediately fell at home. I had good laugh and went on to the other room, found this beautifull lounge-basement en chilled trough the night on the rithm of the music on a huge couch. THIS PLACE MAY NEVER BE CLOSED DOWN!!!
Martin from Poland Reply
can't believe they're trying to shut this place down! so many wacky memories. i recommend the downstairs, gothic-y backrooms. spooky stuff. sweet.

I recommend Le Madame to all people that would like to find a really relaxing, alternative and amazing place. Local government would like to close it. Please sign the special form to avoid such a bad event.

criminal from United States Reply
AWESOME atmosphere, however i have a warning to all: Watch Out on the winding stairs. They are extra slick, especially if your shoes are still wet from trudging thru snow... speaking from experience, i ate it hardcore on the way down last night but luckily danced off the pain to some good music :)
momo from Poland Reply
I have the best sleep over there,dont miss!while in Warsaw,very cool.

Really amazing place - stuck in the middle of nowhere, but really the coolest place in Warsaw. Full of arty types, but not of the armchair variety - come over all Bohemian and settle in for an outstanding evening.
