Krakow Bars and Pubs

Famous for their vodkas and superb beers, Poles are not shy when it comes to the odd tot or three. As a visitor to the city, the choice is mind-boggling. Just bear in mind that for every drinking hole you find at street level, there is probably another in the basement, and a club upstairs. Even the local franchise of a famous coffee shop chain offers spirit chasers! Once you're here, just remember that the Old Town district has more bars per square metre than anywhere else in the world, so don't expect to get very far on a pub crawl.

Reviews about Krakow Bars and Pubs

Me and my dad went here the first night on the holiday, they took me into a private room and injected me and drugged me, I had been dumped onto a road out in the countryside and found by some locals, I woke up on a drip in hospital and blood all over me with fractured cheek bones and a closed eye, this has completely ruined the holiday as now everybody I see looks at me like I’m a thug, and I had to pay loads of money to the hospital after being robbed also, they were worried I had overdosed as I was unconscious, I’m a big guy so I think they gave me an elephant dose which nearly killed me, I had to be on a drip and resuscitated. The clubs is full of absolute cunts

Night Club VIP

Amazing new place with the best spirits/liquors in Krakow. Craft spirits and NIEWODKA - that's your time!


What I also wanted to say is that I do not think that it is good to live with hate in your heart. And I believe that one day the right person will stand up and do the right thing. And it will be the real end of VIPClub in Krakow.

Night Club VIP

Great new place in the Old Town, very impressed with the concept. Exactly what Krakow's been waiting for.


It is going to be boring. Burn the club down or kill the owners. Don't write more comments and reviews.

Night Club VIP

same story as below, they put drug to your drink and then they charge your credit card several times, dont go, this is not a club, this is polish maffia... we were 3 friends and we all had same problem, they stole money from our credit card

Night Club VIP

Awful place. They called me a retard because I didn’t want to buy the girl and drink for 350 zloty. They then took my phone to see how much money I had in my account and told me I can afford to buy her one drink. I said absolutely not. She then called me a c***.

Goraczka Freak Club

I was drugged with two of my friends at this club. My friend was found unconscious by some Americans in a lane (they saved his life). I was attacked in the street by another polish man who owned a restaurant after pissing on his restaurant wall outside and while drugged I pushed him away from me and he fell and broke his leg. I have no recollection of this (I was on drugged) but I was arrested and the police showed me on CCTV. I had ZERO memory of this and I only had 4 cherry red vodka shots given to me by this club and two other drinks beforehand. This club nearly killed my friend and it gave me a criminal record by drugging me and causing me to seriously injure an older polish man by mistake. This club NEEDS to be shut down. They also claimed our cards did not work but they charged multiple times. Luckily I only spent £80 in this club before I got away but I am devastated at hurting someone when I was essentially unconscious on drugs.

Night Club VIP

cool historic place, fantastic in summer, also lots of great festivals here

Stara Zajezdnia Krakow

Please please read these reviews and do not go in this place. You will be drugged, beaten or scammed.... or all of the above!! We went to this place with another couple, there was a man that lured us in ( we think he was English ) saying if we all brought a beer we could have A free bottle of vodka, we should have known that this was not going to be a nice place from that moment. We entered the club and we were the only people in there , a stripper sat with us, she seemed nice , she was only 19!! ( if your reading this I hope you live a lonely sad miserable life you pathetic excuse of a woman ) We got our beers and a bottle of vodka but no mixers. I asked the stripper where the loo was she took my hand like she was going to take me there, she actually took me to a dark dingy room and wanted me to have a dance. I said no and pulled away from her and went back to our group. We now know the vodka was spiked, We did offer some to the stripper and she didn’t have any which now makes sense. One of us went to ask for mixers and was told we had to pay , so we did but the card said it was declined, so we tried 5 times, it then went through and after we looked on our bank app we realised we’ve been charged 5 times, for hundreds and hundreds of pound!!!!!! This was actually nothing compared to some people as if you read some of the other reviews on google some people got scammed 1, 2 or 3k luckily our bank is giving us that back. The couple we were with decided to leave, my partner followed them to the door to ask if they were okay and I stayed in the club still not realising much was wrong. Then as I went to leave to find them they tried to make me also pay Hundreds of pounds and luckily I had my partner shouting from the bottom of the stairs and screaming telling me to get away from them and leave With him right now. The stripper and a bouncer was holding my arm not letting me go telling me I had to also pay. I had no idea our friends were scammed at this point. In the end I got free and we left, my partner then told me that he had been pinned up against the wall , nearly chucked down the stairs by the bouncers. It’s only because he was fighting back i think the fat lady everyone is talking about let go of me. Once we were out we realised, Myself and the other girl, I think, were the only ones who had any of the vodka, we were both very upset and I was very aggressive towards my partner which is not like me at all, so this makes us think we definitely were drugged and there was something in that vodka. luckily we don’t think we had much of it and luckily we got away! Some of the reviews have said they woke up naked with no money and had been scammed and drugged we got off lightly by the sounds of it! please please do not go in this club, how this place is still open is beyond me.
