During a business trip I had a meeting in Warsaw. As everyone knows, after work it’s a good thing to relax and have some fun. I picked the New Orleans club because I had it recommended to me by a business partner. A unique place, it’s hard not to appreciate the beauty of their dancers. Not to mention I ate a good meal and had a few drinks. I’m glad I had a chance to spend such a unique evening.

Very interesting article. The description really does bring out the vibe of Warsaw. I went there last month and I have very fond memories of that time. The thing I liked the most was the night life, especially the New Orleans club, which I can easily consider to be one of the best in Europe.
