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

Tricky club. I highly not recomend, they force you to drink a lot of booze and they pay ridiculous amouths of money for almost no services. I arrived sober, and girls forced me to start drinking. First drink is cheap, then prices go up, also you have to pay drinks to a girl which sits with you. After half hour they asked me, if I want private show, I agreed, they wanted 900 zloty for hour, which is really expensive. Worst was that after 10 minutes in private room they told me that I need to pay another 2900 zloty for continuing. I was confused and declined, lady was like OK, I will come back in some time. Whole time girl begged me to drink shots. After 5 minutes second girl arived that she wants to join. I told her that she can, but that I will not pay for that, she joined anyway. After another 5 minutes cashier arrived and demanded another money. I argued, that I didnt had my hour and that I didnt wanted second girl. All 3 started to force me into more payments, so I left the club. One hour and 1250 zloty was gone, I didnt even enjoyed my lap dance, because they still came to ask for more money. When you dont want to drink or have expensive services, they start asking over and over again ehy, that Im making them sad, that I shoul enjoy life and so on and on and on. Scam club!

Please watch on youtube: Opgelicht in het buitenland - Krakau. A dutch reporter went inside those clubs and made a documentary about these evil strip clubs!

Whatever you do brothers please ensure that you report the charges and request a refund from your bank and keep pursuing your claim until you get your money back. Please do not be too embarrassed to do so! I had to answer some tricky questions but I ended up getting my money back eventually after half a year. These experiences happen to thousands of people every day across the globe and it's not your fault - shit just happens sometimes after a few drinks. Just ensure that you learn from the experience and don't let it happen again and don't give up on getting your dollars back!

Oszuści. Omijać szerokim łukiem. Nie bede sie nawet rozpisywać bo historie poniżej wiele mowią. Jak ktos chce sie w dziwny sposób pozbyc paru tysięcy to polecam. Przez chwile nieuwagi panie barmanki podpatrzyły pin do karty a potem nabijaly coraz to kolejne kwoty twierdząc ze transakcja nie przechodzi. Rano oczywiście okazuje sie ze na koncie brakuje pieniędzy nie tylko przez autoryzowane transakcje ale nawet jakimś dziwnym trafem panie wypłaciły pieniadze w bankomacie moją kartą. Oczywiście policja zapewne niewiele wskóra. Niesamowite ze takie rzeczy sie tam dzieją i nikt nic z tym nie robi

This is not a night club. This is a mafia heist. You’re met on the door by an old pro who promises you free drinks and girls, you’re on a stag do and you oblige. Once inside you head to the bar, you order your beers and a waitress directs you to a table whilst the bar man sorts you a liberal dose of GHB in your Heineken and your free shot. All with a smile. Once seated and they bring you your drinks you realise there’s no one else in there, until two scantily clad ladies make their way to your vicinity (2 per person). One complements you on your plain black shirt, whilst the other digs into your annual earnings and tries to find out your mothers maiden name. “That’s weird”, you think. But within 20 minutes the drugs kick in and the fraud begins. Your mates disperse to various rooms, dragged by various ladies. Despite you declaring you’re not interested in a dance they promise you a free taster. They pull you into a cupboard before your legs turn to jelly and you wait there for what could be 5 minutes or could be 50 minutes. By this point it’s a blur. The dance, that you’ve not agreed to, is 20% dance and 80% pouring drugged Polish vodka down your throat until you can’t breath. Once that’s over, they bring you out to wait for your mates, only the room you’re waiting in looks nothing like the one before and there’s a lock on the door. There’s 2 more girls in there. By this point things are really sketchy. You’re wondering why they’re demanding a certain bank card from you and you can’t understand why a woman is waving your phone in front of your face. “It might be time to leave”, you think. Yet there’s a girl straddling your lap and even if you could somehow push her to one side, your legs no longer work. Despite asking nicely to leave, they pour more vodka down your throat and treat you to another beer. The next thing you know it’s 7.00am and you’re hobbling back to your hostel confused and annoyed. You’ve been in there for 5 and a half hours, most of which unaccounted for. You crash out on your bed fully clothed. When you wake up 2 hours later, you check your bank account. They’ve taken a loan out in your name, opened a Revolut bank account to transfer the funds to and they’ve charged £8k to said account through a Virtual Card on Apple Pay. In summary, I would say it’s best to avoid VIP Club, but that’s just my experience. This is coming from someone who got all of their money back, so it is possible. Basically made it my full time job to keep pushing the bank, but 8 grand is 8 grand and I got it all back. Now, whenever I mention this story to anyone else who has been to Krakow, they always recount a similar experience they or someone they know has had.

Avoid! If you walk down them steps you WILL be drugged (GHB) you WILL be violated and you WILL be robbed of what ever money you have available on you at the time, cards will be max’d out, smart phones will be used to access funds, if you come around and they not finished robbing you you will be re drugged till they are done with you, if you fight it you will be beaten or pepper sprayed… it’s literally the stuff of nightmares and they have no morals, the whole square at night is one massive scam but they are literally playing with your lives

Had a girl stop me on the street, seemed nice and said the club had good music and a free drink. Had my free drink and bought a beer paying g by card. I realised pretty quick what kind of place it was so decided to leave, I was on my own and a girl was suggesting we get a private room. I told her firmly I was leaving. It took me about 10 minutes to get back to my apartment whereI managed to get through the door before passing out and cracking my head on the wall. Clearly been drugged but luckilygot out. My card had been bumped for £190. Never again. Totally criminal establishment. I woke about 5 hours later

Oszustwo na całego, dziewczyny dosypują do drinków narkotyki. Po czym człowiek wychodzi bez kasy w portfelu jak i na koncie…

Goraczka Freak Club

Stay well away from these criminals, on the 20th March 2022 like most of the stories on here, we were ushered into the bar not knowing it was a strip club and given a few free shots (this is where they drug you) which is the last vivid memory everything else is a blur. After being drugged they separated me from my friends and told them after realising that I’d left, which I hadn’t they had me in a dingy back room where over the course of a few hours, most spent unconscious they gained access to all my accounts slapping me and using Face ID, whilst passed out they sent and spent multiple transactions amounting to £14,000, After coming round after seeing flashes from them taking pictures of my cards I managed to fight my way out of the club to then pass out again outside my apartment at 6:30am minus 4 degrees, where my mates found me vomiting repeatedly once carried back inside. It wasn’t until the Following day I realised the funds missing and after visiting 3 police stations, as you can imagine got no help as I didn’t have an interpreter and was laughed at, the police are 100% part of the problem and it’s a disgrace to the country that is supposed to be a lovely city break for tourists yet it’s a dangerous and corrupt! This place will get what’s coming to it eventually, fortunately I got the funds refunded this week but not after a very stressful couple of months. Probably best to stay away from Poland altogether, warn your family and friends because reading reviews this is happening across many clubs and has been for years.
