The study was written upon the basis of material collected in the course of studies conducted in the Praga district in 2006-2008 as part of the Urban Anthropology: The Myth of Praga. Contemporary Praga. Artists in Praga laboratory group supervised by Dr Zbigniew Benedyktowicz. The presented monograph is a portrait of the Saturator Club - one of those new places in Praga which testify to the changes taking place in the district as well as one of the most interesting venues of its sort in Warsaw. The author - a young anthropologist - focused his attention on the fact that Saturator attracts people representing an above-the-average openness, tolerance and interest in others. The club itself is provocative and controversial, frequently difficult to bear, but many of its clients seem to feel best here. The author tried to view Saturator from assorted perspectives: as a club, a site and an organisation. In doing so he wondered what makes the club exceptional and considered the impact it has on the perception of Praga. The collected material shows a willingness to flee the general current of club culture and clubbing patterns, and the need to feel at home. This observation comprises the prime thesis of the study, whose author, by basing himself on anthropological theories and publications, attempted to place the examined phenomena within a wider context and propose their interpretation.
