Been here 4-5 times both last year and again this year the man who owns it is very friendly (Big Norwegian guy) nice chilled out relaxed atmosphere right in the heart of Kazimierz, it's pretty quirky and cool inside like a lot of the pubs/restaurants it's quite rustic and dark inside but has a very warm homely feel to it....

We popped into here for a few drinks while in Krakow. There's a great choice of drinks including cocktails and beers. Decoration is really interesting, a copper bar, heavy stools and plenty more. Generally a relaxed spot for a beer after a long day's sight seeing.

This is just one of the great places in the Jewish center. Catch some sun along the busy street, watching people and tourist trolleys go by. Interesting interior. Kind people. Good drinks. Great place to be in the afternoon or evening.

Great bar with a crazy interior, beer well kept and fresh. Few seats outside to sit and watch the world go by. Fantastic area

We were twice this week with some friends for drinks. It’s a cozy little bar with its own atmosphere. It’s usually not too crowded, so you can hear other people you talk to. There are a few tables outside, which is nice if you want to people watch. Most of the other bars in the area are way too crowded,... More

Good place for few drinks while you in Cracow. Great atmosphere, candle lit bar. Mulled wine was very good and very cheap! Staff nice and friendly. We really enjoyed our night out,

Cool steampunk-like interior, good assortment of vodka and other spirits. We tried a few pints and a caipirinha. The drinks were good and the atmosphere were friendly. The toilet really let this place down, no toilet paper and not overly fresh.

We stumbled upon this place quite by accident and went in because it looked different; it certainly was. The decor is unusual and interesting and the vodkas numerous and very tasty. The bar staff were friendly, too, and quite happy to teach me a little Polish!

I've been here twice in the last week. The first time I'd probably give it 3 stars. Last night however it didn't even deserve the one star. The problem? A woman who seemed to be the owner. The place was a pigsty. Half eaten pizzas and glasses strewn over every single table. Even though most bars in Kasimierz were busy,... More

A strange quirky pub but one you must go to with voltmeters and ammeters on the wall. My two old school friends used this as one of our haunts spending a week in Krakow.
