MiTo is an innovative concept in town: it’s a union of art, bookstore and slow food with a coffee taste. Usually I go there because of the exhibitions; my friends often organize painting vernissage here that can get very crowdy. I also like the place because it is really central and it has books that make your coffee time more interesting.
Since I’m a foreigner in Warsaw, I also look for foreigner magazines – not so easy to find in town, especially in English. Well, MiTo gives me the opportunity to find most of the magazines I like in English.
Lately, the bar has been offering the possibility to join social debates on the immigration crisis or the gender crisis, most of the time in Polish, but still, some former members of the organizations invited also lead discussion in English, which makes it easier for people from different countries to participate.
I must confess that the LGBT and gender discourse is also popular here; the staff is very open-minded and everyone will feel comfortable here, regardless of their political, social or religious beliefs.
For me the place is a must in Warsaw, since there are not a lot of bars that organize happenings related with social problems and, of course, it’s a place that gives the opportunity to people to get to know each other while drinking a coffee.
