Pod Jaszczurami 'Under the Lizards' is one of the oldest and most famous student clubs in Krakow. It was opened in 1969, but the magnificent vaulted ceiling transports you back to the days when a certain Nicholas Copernicus was a student in the city. The club has plenty of bright stars in its firmament, with big names in Polish music (anything from hip hop to jazz) performing regularly, whilst the link with Polityka magazine brings political big-wigs (including the President) to discussions here. This is a friendly place to drop by for a beer or a snack (non-students are welcome), and prices are equally convivial. A venerable 1950's projector shows films by directors such as Lynch and Almodovar and there are also regular art exhibitions. Something of a Cracovian institution.
Editor & Krakow Local
I was there yesterday and it was awful. I grow up in Krakow and never cross that kind of service in all my life. I was in Klub Pod Jaszczurami before in September of this year and I was politely told to order the drinks at the bar and not from the waitress which was grand. Yesterday, i was in and i asked a waitress if that was the same case and with an almost patronizing look and an attitude she said " Well!!!, it's your choice... if you want to order at the bar" and turned to walk away but the she changed her mind after a few seconds and turned back around to us and with an even worse attitude and said " Well if you going to order at the bar, give me back my menus". Shocked, as we were, as we had only sat down and received the menu's and I asked her " Where was all the attitude from" and she didn't reply, she just turned her back and walked away. With that we gathered our belongings and proceeded to leave your establishment and in doing so approached the bar to question the bar tender about the waitress and her attitude and was shown no remorse as they joked behind the bar. As we walked to the door the waitress in question, gave us a horrible look with a grin as we walked out the door.
