Billed by some as being the final piece of the jigsaw, Robert Lewandowski’s long-awaited restaurant has begun operations inside Warsaw’s revamped brewery complex in the heart of the capital’s Wola district.
Officially opened at the beginning of the week, the striker’s food and drink emporium pays homage to not just the footballer’s own accomplishments, but also those of Poland’s other sporting legends.
Named Nine’s in honour of the number that Lewandowski has worn ever since starting his career at Znicz Pruszkow, the project has been built to cover a staggering 1,300 sq/m spread across four-floors of a historic 19th century malthouse.
Formerly the heart of Haberschule & Schiele, a brewery that would later grow to become the largest in the entire Kingdom of Poland, the investment has been split, according to the management, to riff on different themes: “Each zone will offer a completely different experience both culinary and sporting,” they said. “They tell different stories but express the same love for sport.”
