“Where can I get a drink around here?” A simple question, right? Not in Krakow.
I’ve heard that there are over 200 places to drink in and around the Main Square alone so finding the perfect spot can become quite a tedious task. The good news is that, since every place has a unique vibe and attracts a specific crowd, your perfect watering hole exists somewhere nearby, just waiting to be discovered.
If you’re an artist or possess an artistic soul you should check out Pauza. Not only is it a place to get a drink above ground (most bars are underground here) but also a place to get inspired. Various exhibitions, live music and interesting lectures (usually free!) will keep you busy during these dark and gloomy winter afternoons.
There’s also plenty of liquor (and coffee) to keep you…warm. I always ask for “Barmanska”. It’s a vodka, sugar (brown or white, your choice), and lemon (or lime) concoction that always leaves me wanting more.
