Gdansk / Sopot in Oct or Nov

Hi,

We (8 guys all just under 30ish) are thinking of heading to Gdansk / Sopot in October or November for a stag do (not a typical beery Brit one – we are more reserved and respectful and interested in experiencing local life somewhere new)

What are these places like at this time of year, mainly Sopot really, I understand it is out of season so likely quieter, but is it too quiet for this sort of thing, would we be better served heading to Warsaw or Krakow instead?

Also what are the average alcohol prices, I am seeing around 8-12PLN for beer, is this correct? Is it a lot more in clubs like it is in the uk?

Thanks

Hi, October and November deprive theses cities of crowds heading towards beaches. The weather is not written in stone. It may be sunny, but chilly, but it may easily be snowy. Sopot continues being lively during the weekends with crowds of people filling the bars, restaurants and discos, while Gdansk is ceirtanly more sleepy. The two are awsome in terms of spas that have a more relaxed atmosphere than during the summer peak times.

The beer is around 5-10 zl in the bars, unless you go for more fancy, imported from Mexico or Australia beers that may be more costly. The prices for bears at supermarkets start at 2 zloty
