Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 140 kinds of vodkas at the bar. If you've tried and got tired of the more obvious bars and clubs in the Old Town centre, then head off the Main Square, past the Maly Rynek (Little Square) and along Mikolajska Street in search of a legend. Here at No. 24 You can find the Black Gallery, one of Krakow's oldest and most popular bars post communism, and home to the original blue kamikaze shots, along with several other colourful drinks, cocktails, beers and so on.The majority of Black Gallery lies underground in a 12th century cellar - close examination of the stone walls reveals traces of medieval sculptures - and is constructed in a labyrinthine manner with steel staircases and scaffolding structures enhancing its otherworldly nature. A mezzanine in one corner provides a discreet hideaway, while the atmosphere is the avant-garde end of Rock'n'Roll, and thus attracts a younger crowd.A popular feature is the secluded garden, invisible from the street outside, which stays open until dawn throughout the summer. Well shaded, with plenty of trees and a faux 'beach' style, it's an excellent place to cool off away from the hubbub of the Main Square on hot summer afternoons.In many ways Black Gallery offers an ideal combination: there's plenty of space to dance, and plenty of nooks and crannies where you can take a seat and chill. Famous for its shots, to the uninitiated the trays of fluorescent-coloured drinks bring to mind a gothic laboratory. This is a late night place with a style that sets it apart from the rest.

Amazing and accommodating place with vibrant and awesome atmosphere. The perfect place for lost souls, tourists and locals with great city center location,

There is nothing more to say about, you just have to visit yourselves. ;)

Reviewed November 6, 2013

You never know what you'll see inside :). We can meet there locals and turists. It's a good place to go out with friends or If you want go there alone just for "one" beer you'll always find someone to talk.
