I felt like I went back in time. It was lovely, the cake was also yummy. A very intimate recital in a living room. People were kind, music was wonderful. A lovely break from a hectic day.

Dear Debbie, That's great that you visited us, Salon ad Chopin. That our pastry  is yummy. Our pianists like positively motivated people  to play for them.  Looks like you are such person. Hope to see you again

As you can expect, there are many venues in Warsaw that offer Chopin concerts. I'm glad that I decided to go with Chopin Salon.

Their recitals are held in a living room of a Bed & Breakfast. So, the acoustics is not the best, but it feels intimate and cozy. On the day I visited (June 23, 2019), the pianist was a young lady from South Korea. I was blown away by her performance. She was amazing. I just could not believe any human can possibly move their fingers the way she did.

As other reviewers pointed out, their recitals are short. About 45 minutes, but it's only 40 PLN (approx. 10.5 USD). So, you can't complain, particularly for the quality.

Booking tip:
I learned about Chopin Salon in Rick Steves' guidebook, but it wasn't clear how to make a reservation. So, I emailed the B&B (info@bbwarsaw.com), made a reservation, and paid for it at the door.

Dear Masanori, Thank you for the detailed description of the place, atmosphere and the way you can catch us. The Chopin Salon is no longer a historical living room but it has its appearance. It can accommodate no more than 40 people, and the acoustics improve with more people in the audience. Let's try to fill the room together, and the acoustics will be perfect, Korean pianist Wanyou Back and her fellow pianists as someone else will be happy in the salon every day! Organizers too I cordially invite you

A highlight for young and old. Beautifully performed in a setting that feels like you are welcomed into a sitting room with friends. Drink and cake a welcome addition too.

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your visit and for compliments not only for the pianist. Our restaurant chef, Krzysztof, who specializes in excellent cakes, was also happy. The best cheesecake is the one that most often graces the daily Chopin concerts in the living room. I invite you again

Imagine a professional musician play an intimate show in your living room! The performance we attended was just like this— a fantastic classic duo, with talented and passionate musicians— in a small, intimate salon.

And what to add here? Dear Guest, we decided so on June 21, 2013, that is over 6 years ago. Every day from this date, we have concerts performed by outstanding artists. By today, well over 2,000. The showroom where the concert takes place serves most of the day as a rehearsal room. And there are different people because we adopted the principle that a different artist plays with us every day Thank you for recommending Chopin salon

An absolutely beautiful atmosphere! There were only about 20 people there in what felt like someone's (fancy) sittingroom.

At the front of the room is a fantastic grand piano and while you soak in the comfort and homliness of the room, the waitress gives you an nice big glass of wine and a slice of cake to make you feel at home! (Great accomodation for English speakers.)

We were then introduced to our pianist: a teacher of Chopin's music in the local college. It was a privilege to experience. Anyone who appreciates classical music should go here!

9.10.2018! I wish I could attend more often to recitals like this one. This place just has a soul, the soul of Chopin and Poland, accompanied by glass of wine. I recommend it without any doubts.

We happened upon this place in one of the tourist brochures we picked up around town and were very pleasantly surprised! We had the pleasure of meeting the very talented Alexandra Bobrovska who gave us an intimate and thoroughly enjoyable semi-private concert, with explanations and animated vignettes about Chopin, his works and his loves.
We highly recommend this place to everyone visiting Warsaw!

Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting Chopin Salon on Smolna Street 14. Your description of the place and atmosphere is exactly what we wanted to achieve. The touch of the salon music from mid XIX Century. With best regards

I surprised my wife with this visit to the
Chopin Salon. She loved every minute of it as she is a true music lover. The young man who played for us that night was fabulous. This is a must do when in warsaw. May be some bigger but none better.

Dear sir, I want to thank you for the feedback you made to our pianist. Since I don't know exact date of the concert you attended I guess that "young fabulous" pianist was Braulio Alcaraz (July 24th) or Dominik Stępiński (July 21st). Every day we have different pianist of similar potential, this is why it is wise to attend concerts in Chopin Salon every evening! Once more thank you for the warm remarks and welcome again.

I had read about these concerts on TripAdvisor. It was well worth the visit. The pianist was a young man and played with such passion and hour went very quickly. We were given a drink and arrival and it was very good value for the money, which I thought was very cheap.

Dear Guest, I hope more Swans will be visiting our Salon, since it is as you experienced a real, an authentic space commonly joint by musician and his audience. It was our idea from the beginning to create a space where old and new times can get together , where old romantic music can be interpreted by the young musicians of our days. Thank you for being with us . It is a real encouragement for artists and organizers.
