The name of Chmielna Street appeared in official documents in the second half of the 18th century. Hops were probably grown here. A truly garden landscape and low, loose wooden buildings dominated.
In 1770, the street was regulated as far as Twarda, and soon it was partially paved. The first brick houses appeared in Chmielna only at the end of the 18th century, near the intersection with Marszałkowska.
The development of Chmielna towards the west was due to the lack of space at the representative Nowy Świat, as well as the construction of the Warsaw-Vienna railway and its station at the corner of Marszałkowska and Al. Jerozolimskie.
The fragment of Chmielna Street, where Varso Place is being built, was only a dirt road at the end of the 19th century. Only later were the railway warehouses, engine house and workshops built, all along Żelazna Street.
In the 1930s, Chmielna was the fourth, after Marszałkowska, Al. Jerozolimskie and Żelazna, the longest and busiest street in the capital. Asphalt appeared here in 1926, and a few years later one of the bus lines started its first service.
Chmielna has always been a street of contrasts - aristocracy, landowners, officials, representatives of free professions, as well as craftsmen, workers and the poor, lived, worked and spent their free time here.
The entertainment life of Warsaw has always been concentrated in the vicinity of Chmielna. Already in the eighteenth century, the so-called Szczwalnia, also known as Hecą, the equivalent of today's circus. The impressive, cylindrical building housed up to 3 thousand. viewers.
Over the years, inns, taverns and restaurants of various categories developed, and with time also theater gardens and cinemas. In the interwar period, it housed one of the most elegant cinemas in Warsaw, the famous "Palace".
The proximity of the railway station favored the development of hotels in Chmielna. According to the 1933 census, these were: Grand Hotel (No. 5), Lithuanian (No. 19), Royal (No. 31), American (No. 47) and Astorija (No. 49).
Due to the proximity of railway facilities, the area of today's Varso Place was destroyed as a result of air raids in 1939, the Warsaw Uprising and deliberate arson attacks by the Nazis before their withdrawal from Warsaw.
During the first post-war decades it was part of the so-called "Wild West" - a ruined western part of the city center, administratively attached to Wola.
In connection with the construction of the Palace of Culture and Science, in the 1950s Chmielna shared the fate of other streets in the center of the capital. Its nearly one kilometer section has ceased to exist. The eastern part turned into a promenade - a symbol of private trade.
In 2009, the eastern section of Chmielna was entered in the register of monuments. Seven years later, the construction of Varso Place began on the west side of the street.
