Baraka: Colorful and metal In Kazimierz - around Plac Nowy Review

Baraka is one of the pubs / clubs at the New Square (Plac Nowy) in Kazimierz district, in my opinion the best place for quick drink as well as a all-night long seeting with friends and a mugful of beer in hand. Music: chill out, reggae, jazz and folk. Sometimes a bit laud to speak being heard.

Open: 9 AM - last clients (the longest I was to 3 PM). Beer - about 6 zloties (~1,2 euro), drings - from 6 zloties.

Huge windows, so you can easy looking passer-by on the New Square and Warszauera Street.

Last times they add also a floor with definitely different style of arrangement.

Dress Code: Casual

Address: Plac Nowy / Warszauera Street 1

Directions: Kazimierz

Theme: Nightclub

Everywhere you can eat, drink, dance, play... - Krakow

Everywhere you can eat, drink, dance, play...

Whatever what you like: Around the Main Market

Krakow is a good example of cities in which the nightlife is not spread over all their territory but is concentrated in one (or more) place(s). The Main Market Square and its surroundings are one of them. And they are probably a prime of such places in Krakow and for sure the most famous.

Once upon a time I have heard there had been over 100 cafes where they had been serving alcohol inside a ring of Planty Garden (a few squares with Main Market among them and over a dozen streets). I am sure that now this number is doubled or even trebled.

But the best of them is their diversity: you can find both "artistic cafes" and regular pubs, pizza restaurants and Latin discoes, traditional Polish and linked to other cultures and cuisines, snobbish and ordinary, modern and old-fashioned, inside and outside, cellars, ground-floor and upstairs, one- and more leveled...

Whatever what you like. Taste them. By night, but in the day too.

Dress Code: Usually casual, sometimes official.

Directions: Inside the Planty Garden.

Theme: Other

On the stalls - Krakow

On the stalls

Plac Nowy (New Square): Evenings on the stalls In Kazimierz - around Plac Nowy Review

In a heart of Kazimierz there is an original place for having some night fun. Especially during weekends New Square is full of people who just sit on the stalls, in the mornings used by merchants for selling their goods. Around the square there are many clubs, pubs and restaurants, but the best atmosphere is in the middle of the spot. Sometimes one can have some little problems, because owners of pubs don't want to sell beer for taking it on tables. Last year (2002) the municipal police tried to evict people from the tables arguing that drinking alhohol is not allowed in open area. But they failed, probably because close to the tables appeared fast-foods and now there is no clear border between their area and this belonged to "no-one".
The place is popular within artists, alternative journalists and subcultural youth.

WARNING: NOW THE MUNICIPAL POLICE IS AGAIN IN THE OFFENSIVE AGAINST THE STALLS-SITTERS*

Dress Code: Casual.
