When I used to work near Holborn I used to drag my colleagues (or were dragged myself) to a little place, tucked away in a narrow passage just behind Holborn tube station, called Bar Polski. Not for patriotic resons, mind. I just loved their range of vodkas, back then almost totally unknown in Britain – mainly żubrówka.
Then I forgot all about it until today, when I stumbled across this review of Bar Polski on a website called londoners.com.
Full of mistakes and typos, but generally speaks highly of the place:
At £2.50 a shot, Bar Polski is the perfect place to instigate the inebriation. Just don’t expext to pull anything tastier than a pint.
Just out of curiosity, I decided to check what my favourite review site, Trusted Places, has to say about Bar Polski. Based on three reviews, it was given 4.3 out of 5 points, so not bad at all! But here comes the biggest shock (and I quote Trusted Places reviewer, sweettirana):
Contrary to popular belief I feel I must let the secret out… this bar isnt owned by a Polish person, its owned by an Aussie!
Shock! Horror! But anyway – dzięki, mate!
