Feniks Club – an outstanding place established in thirties last century, that hasn’t changed its decoration ever since then! Our grandparents used to dance tango, foxtrot and waltz there. The club is known for the jazz concerts played also during World War II. It’s most likely the only place in Poland were the tango has been danced for nearly 100 years. It’s a perfect place for the Festival afterparty.
