Alchemia is a really cool old pub that is lit by candles and feels like you are back in the early 1900’s. Although we didn’t eat food the menu looked great and people sitting beside us got food that looked really good.

Great hippy hangout reminiscent of the 70s UK blackouts, where candles where your only means of illumination. Brilliant selection of beers, and lovely eatables. Quirky, cultish, and a Krakow must visit.

A lovely cosy and candlelit bar with hidden rooms and tasty vodka! We visited during the day and it was busy. Definitely but it on your list to visit whilst you are in the Jewish Quarter.

Visted here whilst previously in Krakow and returned again whilst visiting the Jewish quarter. Nice traditional pub with various rooms and outside seating on the pavement. Definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic atmosphere, cosy 20-30thies style. Interiors lightened with candles, you can feel like visiting a friend at old house.

An absolute unique experience to anything I've seen before, brilliant stratosphere, if you visit the Jewish quarter of Krakow that you must visit this place, only if its to look inside.

An alternative looking bar-restaurant-night club, always crowded, with a great atmosphere. Works a little bit longer then other bars around. I became almost a regular during my short 4-day stay in Krakow. :)
