Editor's review

This recently opened club didn't take long to find its niche, and its already become something of a favourite amongst young Cracovian partiers. Funky decor, thumping tunes and plenty of bright young things make this a sound option to check out on your late night adventures. Two dancefloors, three bars and a chillout room are all lying in wait, as well as a host of top Polish and International Djs. The club can hold as many as 500 merrymakers so head on down to Frantic and large it Polski style. Open daily from 6pm (from 7pm during the summer season). Popular and rightly so.

Received a brutal beating from intoxicated bouncers(mostly likely some uppers). Had only had a few drinks with a clear memory of the entire night until a certain point. We were celebrating a girl friends birthday when there was trouble in the club with some other people and people were being dragged out. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time apparently, I was inappropriately escorted out by the bouncers. After being escorted by by a pack of men, each much larger than me I tripped on the stairs due to some shoving and yanking from both sides. This is when I started to get brutally beaten for what felt like an eternity. I was choked, stomped on, punched and verbally assaulted for not getting up on time while they were continually beating me. While I tried to get up to leave as soon as possible, they would simply curse at me and keep assaulting me. I left there bleeding, spitting blood for the next few days, with a concussion, black eye, bruises all over my body, stiff neck and a fracture to my skull.

I was cooperative the whole time, with witnesses all around me telling them to stop since I was not fighting back or doing anything at all besides attempt to escape for my life.

I am a pacifist and am unsure what made them do this. It appears that they might have been looking for a fight and I would not give it to them.

I am disgusted with this deplorable institution on so many levels. What made these bouncers possible and this institution possible in the first place are the owners and management which ought to feel equally accountable.

If you must come here and have no way out, please be very careful and stay alert as this is not what it advertises itself to be. In any other case, please trust me and avoid it all costs, as it will not give you the bang for your buck you are looking for.

One bit of advice to foreigners, a rule that has served me well over the years and I've clubbed in Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia etc etc is if a bouncer ever turns you away or refuses you entry just walk away, it's as simple as that, don't start playing the question answer game, there are plenty clubs in krakow, I've been to so many of these clubs and the bouncers are polite and respectful towards me, I do dress to the nines so that may play a part but please " no confrontations " just walk away from any problems

I'm Pakistani brown skinned from London, I've been to frantic approx 15 times in last few years, yes it can be expensive at the door but I don't drink alcohol and the bartenders never charge me for water so it balances itself out, I've never been met with any racism at the door from bouncers or from other clubbers, I have seen several fights there amongst other clubbers over girls or spilt drinks etc, I've been told as a rule of thumb in all krakow clubs expect to see a fight between 2-4am that is the kick off time lol.

Next door to frantic is a club called shakers please google the following "Sikh guy shakers racist attack" a couple of weeks back a Sikh brother was attacked by a bouncer becaus of his turban, the bouncer thought he was a terrorist, this is the thing that pisses me off with a lot of poles, they are brainwashed by the tv, what bunch of bell ends.

This club is just terrible. I'm a student from Kraków, so I've spent quite a lot of time going out with my friends and Frantic is a club, where local people don't go (unless you are a snobbish girl looking for money or 40-something guy looking for those girls to **** them in a toilet). Music = awful, drinks = expensive, small rooms, always so crowded and the worst SELECTION. I know that every club has its own right to chose clients, but this is just over-the-top. They don't let you stay and explain saying "sorry" like normal human beings like elsewhere, but you can literally see the contempt from their eyes. AVOID.

It's the best club in Cracow. The most elegant and stylish. Dj's are very selected so the music is really good. Every party end at the morning, people want have fun there so long as it possible. So i think there's no discuss that Frantic is the most wanted club to party in Cracow.

And Roger, you should also stop thinking that no club has the right to refuse you just because you are black. They have the right to refuse everyone for any reason, even you.

From their pictures you should know they don't refuse every black, so you probably looked like you were drunk or on drugs. Or maybe they already had many foreigners inside and don't want to be a club for foreigners only.

I don't understand why malvin and roger are allowed to damage the best club of Krakow with their stupid comments. Frantic is not a racist club. If white people may get refused by the bouncers, then blacks may also get refused. Deal with it!

Reply
United States

Frantic is really a cool place, tonight i will go again and i am glad that they have face control. And malvin, i have been rejected by other clubs in the past and i am white. So bouncers have the right to refuse everyone, including blacks. So don't cry malvin and please stay in Norway because nobody will miss you.

i would definatly not advice anyone of my norwegian friends to go there unless you really look european. we were there last weekend and didnt get access (they told us that they had a guest list.) we went out(to black norwegians but they didnt know this)and sent in to of our mates that were native norwegians. they went right in. after a few minutes they came out and told us that they had asked about the guest list but the guys at the door had just laughed. FRANTIC lost like lets say 11 people who spent like 500zt each in another nightclub multiplied by 4 nights thats like approximately 22000zt just coz of the idiotic selection.Urge all my norwegian buddies to spend their money elsewhere. im black and coming back to krakow and sorry to say that frantic will loose more money if they continue with this.i run a firm in norway and will continue going to krakow to experince polish inhospitality in frantic.

One opinion, posted by Roger, came as a huge, unpleasant surprise to

us. Dear Roger, in your review you are not citing any event in

particular so it will be difficult for us to relate to your

accusations. The only thing we understood is that you weren't let in

to the club. Calling it an act of racism is an ungrounded, ridiculous

claim. Quite to the contrary, our selection criteria are the same for

everyone no matter what your skin color is or where you are from. The

application of the policy can be rather easily seen on the photos from

the club portraying people of various races and origins having a great

time together. Before you start a scandal think what could have been

the reason for not making it in as, let us assure you, it was not your

skin color. Because for us, it doesn't matter what it is - as long as

you're rude and disrespectful you are going to be denied entrance.

Best regards.

I wouldn't recommend this club to anyone. I am reading reviews where even whites feel completely discriminated so I don't even know what to say as a black male. I feel embarrassed for all the great people I know in Krakow when I think of the way I have been treated at the entrance of this club the times I have been there. Ladies and gentlemen, don't be fooled, the Polish folks are great. The owners of this club and especially the muscle bound gentlemen operating the entrance really need to know that they are creating a very bad name for themselves worldwide. I am shocked that they are allowed to operate in this manner especially in 2013, without penalty or severe discriminative consequences. For the people who actually got in and eventually had a good time I'll say this: I'm happy that U had a great time because that's what going out in a new country is about BUT.... but U are a minority. I have no clue why this particular club treats foreigners like this but I'm at a point where I almost want to start a protest in the media about them, to expose their horrible entrance policies and hopefully maybe force them to treat foreigners the way most of Krakow does, with some degree of human dignity. I can't even believe I am writing a review against discrimination in 2013 about a silly club!!

I was told that some of the best clubs in Poland belonged in Krakow, the Frantic being one of them. First thing first, that assumption is complete bullshit, I have never seen a dreadful club such as this one. These douchebags at the entrance let polish people enter for free while foreigners have to pay (a measly 5zl but still). The whole place is filled with drunk assholes, almost no girls to be seen. Don't get tricked by the flyer guys outside, they'll tell you that electro music is playing but there's nothing else but lousy rnb mixes.

Don't waste your time there and avoid this club like the plague, warsaw is a much better place for clubs.

To all the english people out there...DONT got to this club. They charge you double to get in none of the girls will even look at you and we were told they are simply there to keep you in the club so you spend all your money but will automatically reject you if you go near them. It is a complete con. All the other places we went to the polish girls were really friendly and down to earth. I think most of the attractive girls are being paid to be in the club. The rest are either boyfriends of bar staff, bouncers or the djs....waste of time, money and one of our 4 nights in krakow. Avoid this club like the plague.

Great atmosphere in the basement, with both hip hop and house music offered. prices are slightly higher than in the usual Cracow club, however, therefore, you get a decent crowd with nice girls. To me, it is the best club in town!

The hip hop and R & B dance floor played the oldest hip hop songs! 4 years old?! Come on now?! You can do better or more recent than that to get the crowd pumping even more!
