A street named the 'Victims of Auschwitz' might not seem like the ideal place to have a bit of fun, yet in the space of a few of months ul. Ofiar Oświęcimskich has had three sound venues prop up in the shape of Kontynuacja, Szklana Ćma, and today's venue in question, Lot Kury.
Open morning noon and night, Lot Kury is a chilled out cafe & bar that has its charms whatever the time of day.
From 8am onwards you can grab breakfast, while later from 12pm each weekday there's a decent lunch combo available. What's more, Lot Kury is worthy place to enjoy a beer or cocktail in the evening, especially on the weekends when they have some popular local DJs on the decks such as DJ Qayin.
In terms of the food that's on offer day by day, Lot Kury offer a range of paninis and toasted sandwiches typical of the many new continental style cafes that are opening up nowadays. On our visit we went for a basic tomato and mozzarella panini that was tasty enough for the money, while not exactly being anything to rave home about. There are some neat toasts available too, made from fresh bread taken straight from the renowned pl.Bema bakers. These pretty, tasty toasts are a tad too petit for the 15zl asking price however, making the panini's (priced around 5zl less) a much better deal.
As far as the drink selection goes, lot Kury scores pretty well in out book. They have three decent Czech Beers on tap, plus a substantially large selection of cocktails. One of their house specialties is an alluringly sweet dry-ice cocktail called the 'Cosmopolitan', which looks like something from a Harry Potter movie. While the drink is arguably a little more style than substance, you can easily forgive someone for plumping for one on a special occasion – it really is a party pleaser.
The interior decor is nothing groundbreaking, yet the somewhat random furniture brings a comforting aura and cool vibe along with it. The music playlist spans a number of genres and stays well away from today's commercialised tunes, adding to the alternative atmosphere. Despite the relatively recent addition of a live DJ on weekend evenings however, Lot Kury hasn't developed a large following of party revelers.
Ultimately, what we have here is a dependable venue for sitting down and enjoying a drink with your mates in a no hassle environment, which to be honest – Wroclaw could do with a few more of. Lot Kury is a sound if not unspectacular addition to Wroclaw's social scene, and one that is a worthy alternative to the popular bar/restaurant KRVN – especially seeing as they also do a good set lunch deal for around 20zl.
