Poznan Nightlife

2 min read    144 comments

There's good news for party lovers arriving in Poznan. The nightlife here is said to rival , and locals would even say better , Poland's more obvious party destinations such as Warsaw, Wroclaw and Krakow. In fact Poznan is considered at the very forefront of electro and dance music in Poland, and many of the nation's top DJs and producers hail from this part of the country. Great news then for dance freaks; if making shapes to the latest sub-genre of house is your bag baby, then you can't go far wrong with nights out at the likes of Cute, Kukabura and SQ Club.

For those that would rather listen to a car alarm than stomach another night of techno there's no need to fear either - Poznan has a traditional party atmosphere that few cities its size can match. The Rynek (Main Square) is the centre of the action, and during the warmer months the heart of Poznan is crowded with sippers drinking up the sun along with their beer. If it's a bit nippy out then the various interiors of many a good venue mean that revellers don't have to go far for a good time. Places like Tapas, Pod Minogi, Lizard King and Brovaria blur the lines between restaurant, bar, and club and provide for many a legendary late night out. The latter two are also good choices for live music.

Whereas the Rynek can rightfully be considered the central hub of Poznan's nightlife, there's plenty of venues scattered elsewhere in the Old Town for those prepared to delve. With Poznan's large student population you'll find a decent scattering of raw, laid-back drinking dens. Check out Kisielice, Dragon and Czytelnia (ul. Marcin 69) for some authentic artsy anarchy. Other favourites with party-goers of all kinds include Proletaryat, the obligatory Commie-themed bar, The Dubliner (ul. Marcin 80/82), the obligatory Irish bar and Tuba (ul. Male Grabary 6), the obligatory meatmarket with lasers, girls and commercial hits!

Finally for those who didn't know it, Poland has quite a strong penchant for jazz. If you're a fellow fan then Blue Note (ul. Kosciuszki 76), Sushi Jazz Sarp (Stary Rynek 56) and Czerwony Fortepian (ul. Wroniecka 18) are the places to head.

Hopefully you've got a few tips to take with you on your adventures into the Poznan nightlife, but there's much more to be discovered than can be written here, so be prepared to follow your nose. Whereas you're more likely to make life friends than to encounter any trouble in Poznan, if you do get any dirty looks from the local rude-boys simply dispel the danger with a cheap round of vodka and talk of Polish national heroes. Bigging up Jerzy Dudek, Artur Boruc (Celtic goalie) and Robert Kubica (Poland's answer to Schumacher) proves that you love Poland as much as your own mother.

Anyone going to Poznan I want to warn you about the strip clubs out there in particular Extragence Club but I’m told all these clubs here are the same! They stand on the street and will pretend to be your friend but DO NOT GO IN! My 18 year old son was lured into this club when offered a free drink! This drink was drugged.!!! Whilst having this drink strippers asked to see my sons photos in his phone as he was showing them he felt his body paralyse! He couldn’t move! They used his phone to rack up over £500 and emptied all the cash from his wallet! They pulled off his trousers and performed non consensual sexual acts on him! They stubbed out cigarettes on his legs & he was punched in the head by a doorman! All the time everyone was laughing at him!! When it began to wear off he began to freak out so they physically threw him out of the club on the street. He phoned me hysterical he knew something bad had happened but couldn’t remember what! Over he next few days he began to get flash backs then eventually remembered certain horrific parts that happened to him although other parts he can’t recall! I’m sickened that such a place in a tourist destination is allowed to operate in this way! Especially as I read this is not unique to my son! Similar stories have happened to others! My son was advised not to go to the police as they are just as corrupt! I’m not sure whether this is true but I didn’t want to risk my son going to them. I’m glad he’s home safe and I’m now exploring options alert authorities, raise awareness and warn others of this despicable evil place!!!!

Reply Mar 26th, 2019

The same happened to me 2 days ago and I don’t know what to do. They took all my money

Reply Jan 26th, 2020

Stupid. You should always go to the police. Even if they were all corrupt, which is very unlikely, they wouldn't do anything to you for reporting a crime. Plus if you have a police report you have some chance of getting the money back by contacting your bank and reporting it as a fraudulent transaction. Not reporting it allows it to continue.

Update: I did contact the police I just did not want my son to do it whilst he was there and I was right they were not interested in the slightest suggesting my son made this up??? Please don’t call me stupid? Until you are in this situation you have no idea what to do for the best or how this feels.. And my bank refunded me all my stolen money.. My bank said this was not an isolated case! My son is still traumatised from this incident.

Reply Feb 21st, 2020

Stupid to NOT report it to the police. Since you did so then that doesn't apply anymore. Glad you got the bank account money back. Sorry your son is traumatised. It's a tough life lesson to learn. People can be evil. I recommend therapy.

I'm Tommie from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I've had two J 1 student living with me for the summer the last three months. T,hey are from Poland, Michael and Naga they live in Warszawa. Michael left last night. Naga flight leaves tonight at 10:59 PM. My home is located on the beach. Walk out my door 30 yards you are in the water. , Surfing or swimming or body boarding, or laying in the sun tanning, In July you could say cooking not tanning. We've had 3 weeks of 98 to 104 degrees. The memories we've made, the great times, the parties on the beach till the sun comes up in the morning. We will cherish and share theses memories for ever. ((Summer of 2018)) With this book I've wrote, Michael brother is getting married. May 15 2019. I'm flying out May 8th 2019.. If there's and ladies that would like to host me while I'm in Warszawa, Poland. You are even welcome to join me at the wedding. I just need to let Michael family know. , , I love the night life, clubbing, dancing, music all kinds but I don't care for country music. anything from rap to techno. Great dinning, better yet you be the host. I'm open to any suggestion. If you have any interest, we will travel for a couple of week. If I like Poland, or a place I will visit I could be there a month or year. If you are one of the host and you can say you had a perfect time, and that you would like , to visit the United States, Virginia Beach, VA. I will pay your round trip ticket. if you have the time we will jump in a new red Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and drive across country, or fly. I would let the host of Poland make that choice. This is my first time of doing anything like this!!!!! Trust me I have a lot of fear,, E mail me I will send you my phone number or anything you would like to know about me , or reference of the people who stayed the summer with me from Poland. SACRED BUT ALSO EXCITED.

Had a fantastic night in Poznan, I went to the Dubliner pub to watch English premiership football, I had fantastic food, very pleasing and chatty staff, good value beer. A fantastic venue with amazing Irish cuisine. There are 3 Irish pubs in Poznan, but this is by far the number 1.

Poznan has alot to offer by just walking around and mingling ...just walk...and dont forget to explore just off the side streets a little. Avoid Club 22 -- pretentious and "overrated" ...There are much better places to hang out in Poznan. Club 22 is like all the attitude of an opening night club in Vegas but with nothing to offer. Its in my top 10 all time worst and Ive been to over 20 countries and live in Vegas . It starts with the stuck up girls out front serving free drinks to women and goes down hill from there fast.

4Continent, Seriously you were either on lsd or some other mentally altering drugs that completely messed up your mind. Poznan old square as well as the rest of the city is beautiful, enjoyable, friendly and up there with most other major European cities. I have been there at least twice a year for the past 6 years and as of yet have not seen anything that closely resembles the city you describe. The city is well policed, clean and safe. You could not be more wrong with your review. Maybe you a sociopath and are afraid of life.

Reply Dec 10th, 2012

I read the comments from 4continental and get scared. I have just booked a trip to Poznan staying close to Stare Rynek. So what is true? Please give me some advice. Shall I stay at home or shall I visit Poznan? What about Stare Rynek in daytime? Tell me 4contintal. George

Reply Nov 17th, 2012

4continents, make yourself a favour and kill yourself! Both Czech Republic and Poland are wonderful countries! God damn idiot

Reply Oct 6th, 2012

Do not go around Stary Rynek at night thinking it is a safe place or for that matter that it is even enjoyable. Almost every place that serves alcohol is open past 5AM (probably illegally) and from midnight until about 6AM (that is not a typo) the great majority of people around Stary Rynek are mostly male, completely drunk, swearing, shouting, breaking bottles in the street, and getting into fights. Again this is not an exaggeration. I have lived here for over a year and near the Rynek. I don't think a week has gone by where I didn't see an actual fist fight in the street, and not a day goes by where I don't see an Alaskan husky style "stare you down" contest. It would be a much better place if they enforced the liquor laws, banned bars from opening past 2:30, and permitted the nicer clubs to operate with late night licenses. The truth of the matter is that any person living in Poznan should be embarrassed of this Old Town square and the literal insanity of the people there. I wish other people on this forum would be more honest (you can sort of tell they aren't being so) but do not believe any of the nice photos you see of the city, with sophisticated or interesting looking people having good natured fun or socializing politely in the Square. The violence around this old town square is inexcusable, especially given what the brochures show and if I worked for an international company, I would be ashamed to send my employees here. (Just as an historical matter I understand it used to be much worse, the fist fights only occur on the side streets now, they moved them out of the middle of the square). Poland has a long way to go before it catches up to someplace like Czech Republic, and even Prague has a long way to go before it starts to be able to say it is an advanced European city. As an insight, I can tell you that the Poznan people are terribly opinionated, obsessed with money, go around imagining that their zloty will be at parity with the euro soon, that their universities will be equal to German ones, and all their 60 zloty dinners will soon be 60 euro dinners and as a result, they will be some of the wealthiest people in Europe. Welcome to the real Poznan.

I only want to know how indian men are treated there in Poznan and in Poland in general? is there any thing I need to be worried of?

I saw some comments here, and I was worried. There are a lot of racism with foreigners? btw, some of you mentioned a few clubs, cafes, museums, etc.. I wonder what the best coffees, best restaurants and the best disco / night club in terms of music, the environment of people, and women. it's true that there are many beautiful women as they say? from what I saw in pictures, women do not seem to Poznan this city or this country, because they aren't blonde but are brunettes right?
