Where to Have a Good Time in Krakow?

September 9, 2022

Your young years spent in a city as beautiful as Krakow would be truly wasted if you spent your weekend evenings alone. If you’re new to the city and are still looking for your party, we’ll tell you where all Krakowians like to hang out during their free evenings.

Forum Hall

Opened just a few years ago, the new public space under the old Forum Hotel is now the center of all nightlife. Modern design, cuisine from all over the world, good beer, views of Wawel Castle, beach loungers on the river bank, the panorama with the Ferris wheel and a hot air balloon. All of this is reminiscent of the famous American theme parks.

So if you’ve been looking for a place to go out for a drink with friends on a Friday night, or even just to find some friends, you’ve found it. Don’t be afraid to enter this jungle, which sizzles with its enormous energy especially in the summer months. Music, dancing, summer by the Vistula…what more could you ask for?

Kraka Hill

It is true that in Poland it is forbidden to drink alcohol in public places. Kraka Hill is no exception, which is why every party ends rather than begins here. However, if you would like to find a nice place for a birthday party or a farewell to freedom in the open air, you don’t have to look for it anymore.

This hill and the meadow around it is a popular place not only for all lovers (as it’s home to some of the most beautiful sunsets), but also by groups of friends who picnic, play board games or just admire the view of all Krakow.

Społem Deluxe and Bracka 4

These two clubs are the best ones that survived the pandemic and out of what you can find in Krakow. If you like retro music, retro parties and are a bit old school, we recommend that you visit the club Społem Deluxe on Florianska Street. If you find it on social media, you’ll always find out the most up-to-date weekend dance party topics.

Klub Bracka 4 is located at the address of the same name, and if you’ve ever walked through Rynek Główny on a Friday night and wondered where all those people on the long line were standing, it was the line for this very club. But don’t let the wait discourage you. The modern space, good music and lots of new acquaintances will surely make up for this wait.

Piwnica pod Baranami

For those who prefer more intimate entertainment, we offer a legendary cultural space in Krakow. In Kamenici pod Baranami, apart from the cinema, there is also the famous Piwnica pod Baranami, which is a center of intellectual meetings, chamber concerts of various kinds – from jazz to alternative music or literary evenings. A quiet atmosphere, pleasant space, the spirit of old Krakow. You can find it all right here.
