Where to go for a Drink in Krakow? 10 Best Cocktail Bars

Krakow offers a multitude of different venues, some of them ideal for drinks. If you are coming to Krakow and wondering where to go for a drink in Krakow, we have compiled a list of interesting cocktail bars in the city centre around the Market Square and in Kazimierz in Krakow. Where to go for a drink? Where to go for cheap or good cocktails in Krakow? Here are some best atmospheric bars in Krakow.


Bubble Toast

Most coctail bars are reminiscent of pre-war bars, but this one is different. It is more for young people who want to take cute pictures of themselves on Instagram. At number 5 on Szczepański Square, there is the Bubble Toast bar with a menu of mainly drinks and champagne. The atmosphere and décor will appeal to a rather younger audience. Apart from cocktails and champagne cocktails (around PLN 30-40), the menu also includes shots, desserts and toasts.


TAG | cocktail bar

In the very centre of Krakow, a few minutes’ walk from the Main Square right next to the busy Bagatela Theatre tram and bus stop at Podwale 6, you will find one of the most interesting places to have a drink in Krakow – Tag. The menu features classic cocktails and original offerings priced between 30-35 PLN. „Our menu is based on five classic cocktails and five original versions”. – confess the venue’s representatives. Also on the menu are non-alcoholic cocktails, slightly cheaper than those with alcohol. Entry by stairs!



One of the interesting places to go out on the roof in Krakow, or to sit inside and look at the views, is the SIX Roof Top cocktail bar located at 10 Św. Stanisława St. Apart from cheap cocktails within the range of PLN 30, there are also very nice views of Wawel Castle nearby.


Sababa Cocktail Bar

Most places to get a fancy drink in Krakow are near the Main Square in the centre, but not all. It’s time for Kazimierz. At 2 Szeroka Street you will find the Sababa coctail bar. The atmospheric interior will appeal to those who don’t necessarily love the interwar period. Prices are standard for Krakow, starting at around PLN 35 per drink.


Mercy Brown

Mercy Brown is one of the most famous and probably the best, or at least the best rated, coctail bar in Krakow. Hidden away in Floriana Straszewskiego Street, its atmosphere takes us back to the inter-war period when Prohibition reigned in the States. An additional attraction are the burlesque shows and jazz concerts organised here. Prices are standard for Krakow – between 35 and 50 PLN.


Scandale Royal

Scandale Royal at Szczepański Square, next to the popular café and Wiśniewski’s liqueur shop, is one of the most interesting places. It is worth popping in for breakfast in the morning in Krakow, later for lunch or dinner, and in the evening the place is ideal for a cocktail or a glass of wine. View of Szczepański Square at no extra charge :). It is worth remembering, however, that the atmosphere is not as sophisticated as most of the bars mentioned here, so the company can be a bit different…


Opus Lounge Bar

A more exclusive and atmospheric place good for a cocktail is the Opus Lounge Bar in the Bachleda Luxury Hotel at pl. Kossaka 6, not far from Wawel Castle. The menu includes classic drinks starting from around 35 PLN, as well as snacks such as deer tartare, prawns or Nice salad. Plus a wide selection of whiskies and cognacs and other high-end spirits.


Unity Bar

Unity Bar is located close to the centre itself but off the tourist trail at 18 św, Filipa (St Philip street) in the same location as the well-known Hotel Indigo and the good Filipa 18 restaurant. Authentic cocktails with local ingredients at around PLN 30.



Where to get a drink in Krakow in the immediate vicinity of the city centre Market Square? For example, to the Movida bar at 9 Mikołajska St. The interior here deviates from cocktail standards, but not the menu. The menu includes both snacks and drinks. Prices are affordable, starting from PLN 30 for popular drinks.


The Trust

For fans of the Kazimierz district, there is one more interesting place on the list. Slightly off the beaten track of Krakow’s Kazimierz at Węgłowa 3 is one of the newer establishments, The Trust. It’s a café by day, and turns into a cocktail bar in the evening. Prices quite affordable for Krakow conditions. Note: closed on Mondays instead of Sundays.
