While Friday and Saturdays are the biggest nights on the club scene in the city, the pub scene is alive and kicking every night of the week with hundreds of bars and pubs for backpackers to choose from.
Rynek Glówny 28, Stare Miasto, Krakow, Poland
Harri's Piano Bar is an intimate, underground venue that hosts jazz bands on a nightly basis. The room with the main stage can get packed quickly so get down early. If all seats are gone though, don't fret...the adjoining room has a plasma screen hanging on the wall televising the show live.
Open daily from 1pm-2am.
Estery 10, Kazimierz, Krakow, Poland
Want to go out but don't want a big night? Let me introduce you to Kolory, Kasmieriz's coolest bar. Extremely unintrusive, there's no house music blaring, no jazz musicians blowing their saxophone in your face, and no bands. Just red leather seats, friendly staff, and cool tunes. This is the perfect place for a drink and a chat after a day's sightseeing.
Open daily from 7am-midnight.
Podwale 6-7, Stare Miasto, Krakow, Poland
Are you the type of person that hates going back and forth to the bar every half hour? If so, this place is just the ticket. Rather than order one drink, you can order three or five litre shuttles with their own taps for your table from the friendly waitresses constantly floating around this huge bar.
Open daily from 9am-3am.
Estery 16, Kazimierz, Krakow, Poland
While the majority of the city's live music venues play host to jazz acts, Kazmierz's B-side Club is where you will find Krakow's up and coming indie and rock acts. The stage is in a very small room underground so watch out for flying pleks and drum sticks.
Open daily from 11am-close.
Szewska 5, Krakow, Poland
Stare Miasto With three bars, two dance floors and a couple of chill-out areas to get away from it all, Frantic is one of Krakow's most popular clubs. On one stage you'll hear hip-hop and r'n'b, while on the other it's house music making them sweat.
Open nightly from 5pm-5am.
