Editor's review

The old Piekny Pies, which used to be just one street over, was a Cracovian institution: barely marked, never advertised, and yet always packed at all hours of the evening and night; a place where bohemian artists exchanged slurred words with foreign students and local jazz musicians. Now, the popular bar has moved to a location that's easily three times the size of the old hole in the wall it used to be (though amazingly it's still just as hard to get through to the bar), and yet miraculously managed to keep the exactly same atmosphere that made the old Pies great. And with a cellar downstairs with a stage and space for dancing, the new locations promises many more events and parties.

ok so.. i always check it out when looking for somewhere to dance in kazimierz on a night out....

sometimes the dance floor is bumping & sometimes it's empty - hit & miss

often good bands here too

they have czech movie nights but with no english subtitles which is such a shame because i would go every week if there were english subtitles as well as polish

Hey Piekny Pies is moving. It's closing down next week. Moving to the Czech Rep of all places. Life will never be the same in Cracow. Where will I go at 2 in the morning?

Despite the massive hangover you'll have the next day, this place is 100% recommendable for all booze lovers & those who do not like posh, overpriced, lacking-with-atmosphere places.

Dangerous, but have not found it so for reasons described by Bob. Simply seems hard to leave here without an epic, epic hangover in the post. Enjoy at your peril!

Gentle elves and kind, bearded gnomes inhabit this cave. An occasional ogre has been known to enter, but the spell that has been cast in the Piekny Pies appears to render them harmless. Highly recommended if you wish to gain several enchantment and herbalism skill points!

Best atmosphere in Krakow, especially on weekdays when other places are dead! THE place for an afterparty...

"i've always loved the old Pies and never had a bad experience, and so far the new Pies seemed just as cool, until about a week ago: my friend and i came on a slow day, monday or tuesday, and it was pretty empty as it was only like 9 p.m. we ordered our beers (tyskie from the tap) and sit down to drink, and after one taste (which i practically spit out) we're determined there's definitely more water than beer in our beer. it really tasted like woda gazowana mixed with beer - it was disgusting and we definitely didn't want to finish our beers. so my friend takes our beers to the bar to complain, and the barman takes a sip and says, "i don't know what you mean, this is great beer!" and even though my friend tried to argue with him that it was piss not beer, he wouldn't give us a refund or a new beer from a bottle, so we just left our waste of 12 zlotys on the table and left. i've since come back, but i only get beer in bottles there now!"

"The dog is dead - long live the dog!! It's amazing, you can come here at midnight on a Tuesday and there's still a good dozen people smoking and drinking - Piekny Pies is definitely one of my favorite Krak bars!"

Great place to hang out. Great music, and at a good volume level to be able to hold a conversation. Very relaxed.

The best bar in Town, really great time, crowded with all kinds of types, good music, the owner (she) is HOT like hell and the staff behind the bar, quick and friendly. Will come back to this place and hang out all night, till sunrise!

Funny one this bar. Basically its pretty scruffy inside but has the 'x' factor - its cool, crowded and has atmosphere! Occasionally when I've tried to get in its so crowded its almost impossible to get into it at all. Clos by there are a few other places, and they're almost empty! How do they do it?

Cult! Not as cult as Lubu Dubu though. But well worth checking out. Friendly atmosphere.

Slightly seedy bar that's bursting with character nonetheless. Rammed at night - better to head down for a coffee in the afternoon - much more chilled. Good music. Axe above the bar unlikely to conform to EU safety standards. Nice sugar tin.

Cool as a very beautiful dog. Tripout music and perfect beers for a kickback night in Krakow. Love it.
