“Cool Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

This was a fun bar. The music was good, the decorations were eclectic and interesting, and the bar tenders spoke good English. Our beers were only $1.50 USD each (after the conversion). My raspberry beer was very good. I recommend stopping at the Endzior stall across the street afterwards for a delicious zapiekanki, which is a baguette pizza with various toppings.

“Certainly not the No.1 bar in Krakow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

This is really an OK place and nothing to get excited about. Order beer or simple drinks as with anything else, its a bit of a gamble. It's a nice studenty place, with a flavour of old Krakow, but thats it. There are far better places in the same square, like Propaganda and Baroque I preferred.

“Awesome pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Definitely visit Alchemia if you're in Krakow, especially if you're staying in Kazimierz. The atmosphere is unique and eclectic, and there is a great mix of people. Drinks are very reasonably priced. Bartenders speak great English, and their desserts are also delicious!

“Great Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Fun mix of people and music. The atmosphere is eclectic, and there was no shortage of conversation. A great mix of people, lots of languages, and the bartenders were great with their English.

“Just brilliant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Amazing location, music and drinks! Totally loved the atmosphere and if you're hungry after a night of drum'n'bass dancing, the best zapikanka place is right across the street. Try the raspberry flavoured beer :)
Highly recommend this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
