Poets in search of a place to while away an afternoon should wander - lonely as a cloud of course - to this homely hideout in Kazimierz. Empty picture frames line the grubby walls, and ghoulish shadows play patterns in the corners. If your pen refuses to deliver a melancholic masterpiece, never fear. As dusk falls the place begins to heave and you can forget about writer's block with some beer-fueled revelry. The ace card is the summer garden, which is like some an abandoned monastery in Ukraine.

Superowe miejsce, Kazimierzowskie klimaty, i w okresie letnim nietuzinkowy ogródek.
Super famous/popular place for locals & tourists which normally makes places awful... but Eszewaria is just actually so cool that you don't care that it's 'too cool'. Doesn't feel like it's trying to hard, just chilling.
You can smoke inside which let me tell you is RARE these days and sooo welcomed by me. It's really hard to find somewhere you can sit inside and drink and smoke and curl up on a comfy couch all at the same time.
If only they served food it would be the king in my eyes, but they don't mind if you bring food in with you.
Its perfect in winter, really dimly lit, fairy lights & candles, old singer sewing machine tables, mismatched furniture, cool rustic apartment, classic kazimierz vintage vibe, like some place the main characters would have a drink in a hipstery film.
In summer they have a really relaxing little garden out back with big trees, hammocks and sink-into lounge chairs.
There are pretty much always people here, chatting and relaxing... yeah... worth a visit for sure. Happy its there.
