Good place for a drink

Really nice atmosphere....dark and candles to light the place. Had a really good drink after a day of sightseeing.

Well-finished and cozy bar in the heart of the Jewish district. It was suggested to me by many polish friends, and it was a very nice experience. The service might be improved - you can only order at the bar with 2-3 people serving you. It was a bit too crowed, but it was saturday night!

I loved this place. We wandered around the Jewish district and find this gem. Nice atmosphere, cool music, great service, hip decoration and good beer. There was a hard-techno event that night (cheap entrance fee), enjoyed every minute of it.

This is a great place to have a drink with friends and relax in Kazimierz. Charming place with soft lighting and antique furnishings, remind you times gone by, all in a young atmosphere. Highly recommended!

An interesting building that is almost always crowded. There are events during some days of the week. It has many different rooms that create an interesting atmosphere. Still there is no ventilation at all in any of those rooms while smoking is permited. If you are not a smoker better try another place otherwise the next day you ll wonder... More

Visited here after a tour of the Jewish district after it was recommended by our guide. Nice place with great decor. It was busy and not many tables free. Pricier than other places but worth it for the atmosphere. Food looked nice too but we didn't try it as had to get back.

I visited this place on a recent trip to Krakow. I shouldn't have bothered? I really don't see the attraction. Dingy bar with a mixture of hipster locals and tourists. It makes me angry just thinking about it. Quite expensive and the staff not very friendly? You can get drinks and coffee for a fraction of the price on the... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch and the menu.offered plenty of choice, although not a lot of traditional polish fare. The interior is quite dark and lunch had a constant soundtrack which was.almost too dominant. The food was served quickly and was all of a very good standard .
