I've been to a few branches of Pijalnia around Poland, and for cheap booze in a functional but tasteful space they are reliable and fun. I like the old pages of Communist newspaper on the walls, the vintage music and black & white films on. A strange but enjoyable place. Do check it out! At 4ZL / 1 Euro a... More

Only small and brightly lit with old newspaper wallpaper and retro Style TVs on the wall. Styled a bit like an American dinner with a central counter to sit at and tables around. Water cost the same as vodka but at about 1 euro per shot it's great value with a small menu of quick eats. Try the energy drink... More

We were recommended this bar by a Polish work colleague. We first went in on a Thursday late afternoon, and it wasn’t busy, but the décor and just observing the barman Mike were interesting! A 300ml beer is just 4 Zloty, and there’s a selection of Vodkas (flavoured) for the same 4 Zloty, so two beers and two vodkas shots... More

Pijalnia Wodka I Piwa is an absolutely fantastic 24 hour bar that offers great beer,vodka and bar snacks at unbeatable prices even by Krakow standards. The bar look's cool with a communist style decor running to old TV's,old beer bottles on display and the wall's covered in old newspapers. We were here on a Wednesday afternoon and the bar was...

Good place to drink fast and go to the club. This is not a good place to sit and talk with friends, its too crowded.

Found this little gem tucked away from the main square.Vodka shots so beautifully crafted they are a taste sensation.Could have easily worked my way through the whole menu. However still have to walk to your hotel so be selective

A chain all around Poland this spot takes drink and pub grub to the most basic, attractive, level. ALL drinks (vodka, whisky, beer, coffee, tea, etc.) cost 4zl which is slightly less than €1. Food plates (think Polish tapas essentially - beef tartar, sausage, herring, toast sandwich, zurek sour soup, etc.. ) are 8zl which is slightly less than €2.... More

Bartenders are very very unkindly: we were Sitting inside in The bar and after The first drink we asked for some more beers and shot and she refused to give us without reason. We left The bar.
