About us

Once upon a time...

...Herring was a cult object that was attributed magical powers.
Even in ancient times it was believed to ward off evil spells and show the way. At the Ministry of Herring and Vodka we still believe in it and convince our guests of that. Our pubs are characterised by a unique atmosphere inspired by the PRL times. The atmosphere of the Ministry refers to the years of youth of our parents and grandparents who were aware of the vitality of herring and strengthened it with a glass of iced vodka.

The Ministry is a place where tradition is cultivated in all manners.

The pub's offer is wide and simple at the same time. In addition to herring, you will find classic bar snacks such as jelly, tartare and pickles. The country's finest staff, carefully selected by the Presidium of Ministers, take care of the guests' enjoyment and the highest quality of the dishes served.

And that's not all!

The Ministry is famous for its exquisitely prepared own recipe citrus vodka and a wide range of cocktails and shots. Our pubs are also prepared for the excellent artistic programmes of the karaoke type, where dance and song are organised to the delight of our guests. These features have gained us popularity among younger people, who like the atmosphere of the pub, and older people, who can go back to the years of their youth.

There are 39 pubs in 37 cities and we are still going to open new ones – Join us!

Our mission began in Gliwice in 2012. Two Ministers, dreaming of starting their own business, opened a 60 m² pub, which quickly run out of space.
Already in the first year of activity of the enterprise a development plan was established, which main idea was to create a franchise from the Ministry.

During the first two years of our development we opened 8 new branches, including 3 in voivodeship cities – Katowice, Kraków and Opole, as well as in Częstochowa, Jastrzębie Zdrój, Rybnik, Tarnowskie Góry and Mińsk Mazowiecki. On average, 4 new pubs appear on the map every year!
