I was in Warsaw this past weekend and got the distinct impression that there is an Anti-British feeling from most of the doorman and bar staff during the evenings. The worst offender being Paparazzi bar. For those who want to go back do you have any suggestion how to get on the right side of these types?

I don't know how you can be surprised at that!! Everywhere I have been in the world the Brits have a bad reputation. I now live in Spain and it is the same here!! I am sometimes embarrassed to be English.....it's sad.

YES DID GET ANTI-BRITISH FEELING ALSO BUT NOT FROM EVERYONE MAINLY DOORMAN// THIS IS STRANGE CONSIDERING HOW MANY POLES HAVE MOVED TO ENGLAND AND MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE WELCOMED... BEST THING IS TO NOT OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND WALK IN ANYPLACE TO GET IN A CLUB, I EVEN SAW 3 SWEDISH GUYS JUST BECAUSE THEY SPOKE ENGLISH THEY WERE REFUSED ENTRY LITTLE SAD REALLY....

Hi, I think that this is a reason of anti-british feelings http://www.smog.pl/wideo/11167/brytyjczycy_w_krakowie/ in pubs, clubs etc. People from Poland like British, trust me. Maybe only owners of pubs and clubs (in Krakow for example) are a little bit angry :p, but don't worry I belive that it will change. (I'm sorry if I did mistakes in this post :) )

As long as you don't go in a big group and are not associated with a stag do, you should be OK. I'd say the feeling is more anti-stag than anti-British in general.

Groups of guys (stags) being loud and drunk on the street is what upsets people (your nationality doesn't matter). If you want to have a good time with your mates and get into clubs (and not scare off the girls!!), just travel in smaller groups and take it easy with the Polish vodka! :)

no definite rule either way. It's not true that Polish are mostly welcomed in the UK. It depends where you are, who with and, of course, how you're acting. As far as Warsaw goes, you will often be let into a club *because* you speak English. Not if you're so plastered you're falling over. Hardly surprising that. If you're ok and some one is making you feel like you're not welcome because you speak English, sod them. You don't want to be there any way.

No anti British feeling in Warsaw at all. People are very friendly and usually like meeting British people. They don't seem to overdo the drink as much as we do, so maybe that could be a problem.
