Editor's review

Lubu Dubu boldly went where few bars have gone before. Such was their success that two newbies have now set up shop in the same building. Located in a little-explored area west of the Old Town, this bar has something of the flavour of the hip east Berlin hangouts of yesteryear. A student favourite, with a few twists on the bad old eighties, the decor is pretty much what you'd expect if you were to give a bunch of art school adventurers free rein to turn a flat into a chill-out (and at weekends party) zone. Flakey posters on the walls, cult film paraphernalia and murky lighting all dovetail to create a classic Cracow experience. Look out for concerts by alternative groups from across Poland (Sundays at 8) , also regular screenings of film classics (Mondays and Tuesdays at 8). Find it on the first floor.

Amazing little club, great selection of 70s-80s cheese music, although the dj hasn't heard of bonnie. Only one drawback DON'T GO UPSTAIRS. The club kitsch has brutal, animalistic, obese, racist bouncers who wouldn't let us in because we're English. Stay on the cheese floor in lubu wubu and you'll have a great night.

Alan from Ireland Reply Mar 30th, 2011

Bouncers are absolute unhinged animals, assaulted a group of tourists for virtually no reason, completely uncalled for. Do not go!

We are sick of all these snobby clubs in western Europe... So this was exactly what we wanted, just something a little different. We had the best night out in Lubu Dubu, it was crazy!!

Paul from United Kingdom Reply Feb 19th, 2011

ok place, but they always play the same music, i'm sick of Sweet dreams and Mambo nr. 5 every week.

only one word to describe it: the best! the local number one in Krakow!

Tamogapo from France Reply Jun 16th, 2010

Nice place, many ambiances.. somewhere to eat near the exit... the place to be !! Superbe endroit avec pas moins de quatre ambiances dans un immeuble désaffecté. Un lieu improbable et inoubliable !!!

we never heard of anything like it we thought LuBu was a fictional warrior but he's not now we know.

Wags from United Kingdom Reply Mar 10th, 2009

My friends were right, this club is ace!! top randum mixture of 80's cheese and Indie - had a top night singing and dancing about!

Andrew Stone from United Kingdom Reply Jan 18th, 2009

Nice club, but bouncers on top floor very rough, they threw a group of boys and girls out for no reason down some stairs... Also our coats were stolen...

Petri from Finland Reply Dec 1st, 2008

Good times. We having a good night out in the Singer-bar and the staff over there recommended LD.

best nightspot in krakow, only need to be more people..... i wish melbourne had a place like lubudubu

Rob V from United Kingdom Reply Oct 8th, 2007

Based on the reviews below, I lead my mates to this place and they gave me a right lynching for it!! I tried to remain positive and tell my mates that it ain't all bad, but to be quite honest this place is one of the dankest shite holes I've ever had the misfortune to be under the roof of. It looks like a squatters flat!

Nicolas from France Reply Aug 23rd, 2007

I passed very fantastic nights in this bar,I met a lot of people, strangers and polish. very good place

DJ frush from Poland Reply Aug 14th, 2007

cool but b-side is better - better music, not full of posers and foreign kids. b-side is where the actual indie kids go!

Joe from United States Reply Jun 21st, 2007

Lubu-Dubu used to be great 3 years ago, but now it's just filled with foreigners. but who am i to complain, i'm a foreigner myself! LONG LIVE THE LUBU!

Eugene from Netherlands Reply Mar 24th, 2007

The things you see, will get you in a certain kind of magic... Dance, drink and love...

DJ Silence from Poland Reply Mar 7th, 2007

4 years and still going strong. Lubu is by far my favourite place to dance in this city! the Sunday night concerts are usually great too!

Temps from United Kingdom Reply Jan 21st, 2007

Crazy 80's communist milk bar meets school disco, this place really kicks off in the small hours, arrive at one or two after a few drinks elsewhere. Drink what the locals drink, double shot (50ml) of vodka each with a communal juice drink to wash it down. The dirtiest but best fun I had in Krakow! But not for everyone......

Anna from Germany Reply Jan 11th, 2007

One of the best places I found in Cracow! I just can't wait to get back to Cracow and to Lubu! Like this Retro-look, the music and the atmosphere! Everything is HERE to have one of the best nights of your life!

anthony from United Kingdom Reply Dec 16th, 2006

Come hither and enter a bizarre otherworld where Kim Wilde is Queen and Erasure are, well, the other Queens. Yep the Eighties dominate here in an unashamedly joyous manner. Akin to a labyrinth of standing-room-only sixth form common rooms witness as hoardes of student youth grind crotches and mouth along to every last lyrical cliche with missionary zeal as though each song is a nostalgic nugget from their childhood. In actual fact the cavorting whippersnappers weren't even born when these tunes were hits, a paradox which only adds to the quirky charm of this welcoming pleasuredome. By such haphazard logic in ten years time this joint will be jumping to the collective sounds of Haddaway, Jive Bunny and Vanilla Ice. Small mercies indeed.

De Josef from Ireland Reply Dec 5th, 2006

I like club fusion nearly as much as I like chocolate cake... Which is quite a lot...

Lennart from Netherlands Reply Dec 3rd, 2006

It's half past nidnight now and I just had to listen to 80 music and visit the webpage of Lubu-dubu on Cracow-life.... I miss you Cracow, Erasmus Krakow 2005-6 the time of my life!!!!

Buck from United Kingdom Reply Apr 5th, 2006

Met the girl of my dreams here. Twice. I like Cheese.

Aaron from United Kingdom Reply Apr 5th, 2006

Good music. Good beer. Good High-five's C*nty, backward, meat head Polish bouncers.

Baz from United Kingdom Reply Apr 3rd, 2006

Strolled in free on two nights, strange mix of music from Kylie - Locomotion to Depeche Mode but played a lot of classic indie hits (New Order, Franz Ferdinand and the Smokers). Good if you don't like cheesy dance clubs. Best if you down shed loads of pevo and get ballbagged first!!! NB: Mind those stairs Aaron

Anni from United Kingdom Reply Nov 11th, 2005

I met my soul mate here. Fantastic place. Overall excellent.

beautiful look

slinky from United Kingdom Reply Oct 23rd, 2005

are you sure you guys went to Lubu-dubu and not somewhere else? It's a place where misfit students get really drunk and dance (in the loosest sense of the word) to 80s tack and rock hits. Great if you want to a pull a grungey 18 yr old too pissed to pronounce her own name...

Smiling cowboy from United States Reply Oct 23rd, 2005

I was very emotionally overcome when i found this place- very good looking clientelle, and even better music. I nearly met the love of my life here, but all he wanted to do was film me! In the words of Cher- Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain Sunny, you smiled at me and then it eased my pain Now the dark days are gone and bright days are here My sunny once shined so sincere, sunny once so true I love you I love you

Hey zula Nerelerdesin ???

Luc Wijnans from Netherlands Reply Apr 26th, 2005

Discribed by a friend as a cult place. Well when I walked in I saw what he meant. Really cool athmosphere and some crazy music. Music I'd forgotten but thanks to Lubu Dubu I am listining to some of the worst music ever made. So bad it's really good.

Shaun Mooney from United States Reply Dec 12th, 2004

Very interesting place. You'll get a mix of new wave and rock and some dance music in here. Good alternative to the pervasive disco-polo. Drinks are well priced and the crowd is interesting as well. I'm a fan. You've got a cool, laid-back place next door too, for when you just need to kick it. I'm coming back.

Zula from Turkey Reply Nov 23rd, 2004
