Clamber up the iron staircase plonked in the middle of the courtyard and head towards the heavy door at the end of the walkway. This in itself is rather apt - the name Niebostan translates as State of Heaven, so think of the entrance as an industrial Stairway to Heaven with a factory-like Pearly Gates. The café describes itself as 'Percentages, Letters and Sounds' - so that's booze, books and music. A slightly older arty crowd means that they can side swerve the 'hipster' tag associated with much of the competition. A great range of beers, regular events, DJ nights and the ramshackle bookshop area make it one of the most talked about cultural spots in Łódź. Watch your step in the courtyard, it's a popular spot for city centre dog owners to let their pooches relieve themselves!
