This 3-in-1 destination at the Eastern Hills Mall opened last summer and quickly became a popular destination for Polish food, craft cocktails, and baked goods.
The European Lounge is home to three connected spaces. When you walk inside, you’ll find Chrusciki Bakery, Simply Pierogi, and Sto Lat Bar.
Here’s 5 reasons it’s worth checking out this summer:
1. Outdoor Patio Spaces
This place has multiple outdoor patio spaces. The bakery patio is perfect for enjoying coffee and pastries, or gelato. For a more cozy vibe, you’ll also find a section of their patio with couches and a fire pit. For dinning, you’ll find a classic patio complete with twinkle lights in the front of the building where you can enjoy lunch, dinner, happy hour, or late-night drinks.
2. Live Music
Live music is back and happening here every Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Typically, you can find Vin DeRosa playing on Thursdays.
3. Locally-Made Gelato
You can find gelato that’s made locally by Sweet Melody’s here. They have all sorts of flavors, including sea salt caramel, peanut butter chocolate, parker house, brownie supreme, cannoli, strawberry, coffee chip, and many more.
4. Craft Cocktails
Sto Lat has a full menu of signature cocktails. From Polish Mules to Blackberry Old-Fashioneds to Espresso Martinis, there’s a variety of options here. Each one is made with fresh ingredients and garnished to be photographed.
5. Build-Your-Own Pierogi Bowls
You can build the bowl of your dreams at Simply Pierogi. Start by choosing your filling and then add a protein, and finish it with as many toppings and sauces as you’d like. The best part? Each bowl is made with authentic pierogies
The Van Gogh Immersive Experience is coming to Buffalo this summer and will be set up right in front of The European Lounge. If you’re planning to attend, make a day of by visiting The European Lounge for coffee and pastries, dinner, or drinks!
