With Powiśle being known to local Varsovians as a cool district to hang about for years, the area has only fairly recently begun to gain international attention - being listed in the top 10 cool districts in the world by The Guardian. Not to be scoffed at. At IYP, It's been one of our favourite haunts for a while, therefore, when plans for the new Elektrownia Powiśle all-in-one complex were announced a few years ago, we hoped this wouldn't be another copy+paste effort. When it finally opened in May 2020 after a COVID-19 delay, we can only say we were impressed. The exterior, as impressive as it looks, doesn't look all too big, which is the first surprise you receive once you go inside - it's much bigger than you'd ever expect! So what's here? Imagine this as a multifunctional centre, including sooped up shops completely new to Poland (nay, in Central and Eastern Europe even!) such as Urban Outfitters, Levi’s, Weekday, COS, Elementy Wear, Marc O’Polo Denim, Hugo, Balagan, Galilu, Chosen By, 3noi and Converse (to name a few), plenty more boutiques, beauty salons, a top floor event space, as well as 14 'gastronomic concepts' in their food market and restaurants, and also 4 bars: Kandela, Centrala,Elektryk in the Food Hall and Juices & Bubbles in the Beauty Hall! You can shop until you drop, then pick yourself up with some great food, all the while being delighted with the look and feel of the place too. A must visit venue.
