Good place to warm up :)

Cool Cafe with a dusty and dark atmosphere that you feel like you're sitting in the past with candles, fireplace and old used furniture.

Lovely bar off the Jewish quarter, perfect for getting out the cold and enjoying the atmosphere and selection of beverages. Will go again.

We wanted to stay at the Kazimierz district, so we found Alchemia. We stayed there in the evening not for a long time. It´s something between a place to have a cup of coffee and a night club. Not mainstream, more alternative with a lot of different people. I liked places like this, but my friends didn´t want to stay,... More

Drinking coffee in this bar makes you feel like you are in the 1930s. Ambience, tables, chairs, accessories and walls are completely different from any of the bars we have been to. great experience.

Right in the heart of the jewish district is this wonderfully krakowesque bar. Great bar, quirky design and cool music. They have live music in the cellar too but we didn't experience any. This is exactly the kind of bar you need to be checking out when coming to Krakow.

Fantastic bar in the centre of the jewish quarter. Great selection of beers, wines and cocktails. Lively atmosphere upstairs and nice venue downstairs. The chips were also very nice!

The food was average at best, the service was terrible. We didn't realise it was self service at first when we came in and sat down, and eventually an extremely rude server came over to shout this at us while turning his nose up at us. Do not recommend at all, there is far better places in Krakow.

The Alchemia is a Bar/Restaurant in the district Kazimierz. It does look almost as shabby from the in- as from the outside. But through that creates a really unique, cozy atmosphere with candles on the tables, fine, cool beer and really friendly staff! Unfortunately we didn't try any food there, but as said: The beer is fine, the staff is... More
