Open from May till the end of September. One of Poznań’s most original spots, the seasonal KontenerART occupies a desolate stretch of grass along the Warta River that makes finding the unusual venue feel like a drink-worthy achievement. Head down Ewangelicka toward the Warta River and you may hear the clamouring of KontenerART before you see it. And the trip will be worth it, because where else can you drink in a stack of shipping containers surrounded by an artificial beach and “art” installations that stretch the definition of the word? One container operates as a stage, one as a bar (with a respectable selection for such an ad-hoc bar) and the rest are filled with art projects that are more confusing than creative. A smattering of deck chairs and wooden pallets are the seating of choice at this hipster oasis, where no one is without a Grolsch and a pair of skinny jeans. Climb the stairs for a second-story seat that offers a view of the river and the ideal perch for people-watching. A welcome and unique summer alternative to pubs and clubs.
