Our yearly summer analysis of the main shopping streets in Warsaw began with Francuska Street, where as many as 43 out of 100 premises are gastronomic ones. New meeting places have appeared, including e.g. The Mon Ami by Saint Jacques restaurant, which specialises in French cuisine and is a new version of the Saint Jacques restaurant, which operated for almost 10 years at Świętokrzyska Street and closed during the pandemic. Andrzejewski PRZYJACIELE: Bistro Cafe or the completely new format of Bar Mleczny Miły, which occupied the premises after the Xero point at Rondo Waszyngtona.
There were some surprising closures of restaurants that have been successfully operating on the map of Warsaw for years, such as BrowArmia Królewska. It was one of the largest premises in Warsaw, located at the crossing of Królewska and Krakowskie Przedmieście streets.
In DT Wars Sawa Junior scheme UNIQLO was opened in the premises formerly occupied by Empik (October 2022). It is the first store of this Japanese brand in Poland.
With regard to tenants whose premises are located on high streets, it is worth paying attention to Aleje Jana Pawła II and the Atrium International Business Center building, which was at the time empty. Its owner announced the presentation of new hotel and office scheme, which will stand in the place of the current office building.
One can't forget about Plac Pięciu Rogów, which is a link between two parts of Chmielna Street. After almost a year and a half of renovation, gastronomy tenants are returning to this place, and along them - residents and tourists do so. In the two-level premises of the former Sphinx restaurant, which was closed in 2020, a new gastronomic tenant, Prosty Temat, has appeared. It is a concept operating in the casual dining segment. Also, a new tenant from the gastronomy industry is preparing its premises in the place of the current Plus store in Nowy Dom Jabłkowskich, we are waiting for the opening until November.
