Worth to see

OFF Piotrkowska

Reminiscent of similar places in London or Berlin, OFF continues to attract new and off-beat local businesses with their pulse on current trends and fashions. We love the fact that the whole project has taken on its own steam and thrives in the crumbling beauty of the old buildings. The past, the present and the future all coexist magically without the need for the kind of massive investment which would ultimately strip the place of its ramshackle glamour. On the makeover point, it should be mentioned that the current developer/investor has already drawn up plans for a total upgrading and renovation of the area in the style of a mini-Manufaktura; here’s hoping that never goes ahead!

To enter this gem of a place, head through the gate in the ugly sandstone coloured wall at ul. Piotrkowska 138 into the large space of wasteland, which looks like a cleared minefield, pass the last remaining Asian fast food huts, the drunken down-and-outs (Yep, they’re still hanging around, but it all adds character!) and head towards the huge red brick buildings, you can’t really miss them!
