Under the arches of Hungerford Bridge lies a café-bar from the former Topolski century gallery. It is a café by day and once the midnight sun comes out it’s a lively bar.


Topolski bar is moments away from Waterloo station. The café/bar is run by the people from the company of cooks. Based on looks, the gallery has pieces of Feliks Topolski hanging from the ceiling, and a DJ hitting the decks. It looks all so artsy more like something you can find over at Hoxton/Shoreditch.

Feliks Topolski is a polish born British expressionist painter. My visit to the venue was late in the evening. Sharing boards were the only food available.

We specified to have a range of good mixture of Polish sausages, dry cured meats, fish, cheese and bread and butter.

The fish and dry cured meats were the favourites of mine, and there was a pickled dish that was seriously addictive. You can tell the ingredients were sourced from good suppliers, a lot of fresh flavours.  Smoky pieces of meat, tasty cheese selections.

There’s a good selection of house cocktails infused with either vodka or gin. One of the cocktails was a winter special, with cinnamon for those cold nights. Overall it’s a nice place close to Waterloo for quick drinks after work or somewhere to chill out and relax. A very good selection of sharing platters and free nibbles from 6-7pm.
