58. Martyna Blaut (El Koktel | Warsaw, Poland)
Listen now
I hopped over to Warsaw in Poland while traveling around Europe and I was not disappointed. What a beautiful city. Best of all, an incredible bar hidden away in the outskirts that creates a fun and inviting vibe filled with stunningly illustrated menus (done by Martyna herself!) of delicious cocktails. Martyna Blaut is the bartending queen of El Koktel. With her unique perspective on bartending in Poland, Martyna’s passion has driven her around the country. Much like myself, she moved on from following her initial passion of University to pursue a career in hospitality and found a way to incorporate her love for design into the core of El Koktel. When you open the cocktail menu for example, you’re immediately drawn to the beautiful illustrations of each cocktail. I remember I pointed that out, to purely appreciate the talented work of whoever it was. This was followed by an array of unique cocktails that have a personal play on each bartenders experience or backgrounds. Martyna and I reflect on her first sip of alcohol, whether she pursues creativity or leadership, we learn some polish industry phrases and of course, her most in the shit moment.
