The House of Literature houses a stylish conference room, located on the first floor , equipped with audio- visual facilities.

 It is available for rent to organize conferences, trainings or receptions.



The House of Literature occupies two beautiful historic rococo and classical buildings. Their unusual history  started in the first half of the seventeenth century; they went through numerous  transformations over the centuries until the complete destruction during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 and the post-war reconstruction through which both houses were recovered to their greatest historical looks.

For 70 years the House of Literature has been the home of the Polish writers’ associations and the seat of Polish literature and the place of sharing  intellectual ideas. For years writers and artists of leading Warsaw theatrical stages have been meeting here, reciting poems and reading literary works.

The Literary Association initiates regular events, such as recitals, a literary cabaret and meetings with distinguished people of the science and culture worlds, thus creating a significant place on the cultural map of the capital.

On the first floor of the House of Literature there is a large Conference Room in a genuine Art Deco style  for up to 180 people.

Many important literary events took place here, such as anniversaries of famous Maria Dabrowska  and Władysław Broniewski.

Now it also hosts meetings with authors and literary events, conferences and trainings, cocktails and banquets.


Located on the second floor is the Library – Donation of Polish Writers, being under

management of  the National Library, with a collection of about 70 000 volumes, a rich collection of literary journals, unique editions of  books with autographs of authors,  archive of press  containing reviews, interviews with writers or describing  the literary life in Poland.


The top third floor of the House of  Literature houses  13 guest rooms.

Years ago only writers could stay here. It is here that many great books were written, by Zofia Nalkowska, Janina Porazińska, Hanna Ożogowska and Tadeusz Breza. Currently we host writers, tourists and business people .


On the ground floor of the building there is the Literatka, a popular cafe  and restaurant serving, among others, traditional Polish food, fine wines and desserts. The restaurant organizes banquets and parties. More information you may find at
