Topolski Gallery and Bar


Topolski gallery, cafe, bar, venue replaces the 20th Century art bunker that has occupied the address for nearly two hundred years. The building originally functioned as a studio, belonging to Feliks Topolski, one of the official artists of World War II; step inside and you won't miss the dedication for a second - upon the walls of the cafe and bar hang a series of paintings produced by the man himself. The venue also plays host to specially curated live music events and club nights.

By night Topolski serves flatbread pizzas, meat, cheese and vegetarian sharing boards, irresistible bar snacks, cocktails, quality wines, and a popular range of beer and cider with a modern, upbeat playlist.
