The best way to stay warm in the cold weather is, of course, enjoying a well-made drink in a friendly, warm and cosy bar or pub. So we have put together our list of the most comfortable and intimate bars in Krakow for you to fight off the cold and enjoy a drink.

#1 Antycafe

A super cool bar that’s dark and cosy, with fantastic wall art pictures adorning the walls. It is a great place to visit, with a wide selection of cocktails and craft beers, it’s also worth mentioning their choice of speciality hot chocolates. They have a separated indoor smokers section and enough room for large groups yet still feeling intimate for small groups.

#2  Mojito Cafe

You’ll find them in the heart of Krakow’s Jewish district – Kazimierz, right next to the Plac Nowy. During the day Mojito Caffe is a coffee shop, but in the evening it turns into a cocktail bar. They only use the highest quality products for there speciality menu of handcrafted cocktails.

#3 Propaganda

One of the smallest bars in Krakow, the walls are plastered with communist scrap and propaganda and sometimes it’s hard to tell whos older, the patrons or the decor. Retro seats on the first floor and a few comfy and couches down in their cosy basement. Old Polish punk, ska and metal playing in the background but definitely, a place not to be missed even if it’s for one quick beer.

#4 Alchemia 

One of Krakow’s oldest bars, candlelit with alchemist tools on the walls and ceilings. With each of its different rooms and cellar having a unique atmosphere, almost anyone can find their nook to get cosy in. The low lighting, old style decor and candle lights mixed with some or there amazing mulled wine will make you want to stay there all night. They also have a nice indoor smoking section and a great food selection.

#5 Kraina Szeptów

Kraina Szeptów means Land of Whispers in English. Centred in Kazimierz, like most places here its a cafe during the day and a bar at night, it is deceptively small but extraordinarily cosy and great for relaxing over some of their fabulous cocktails and conversation with friends.

#6 Dym cafe Bar

A dark and relaxed cafe filled aged men sitting on the rickety wooden chairs drinking espressos by day, candlelit in the evenings, it’s filled with all sorts, young and old drinking shots and wine beneath the odd painting hanging on the bare concrete walls. Drinks here are cheap, and the staff are always up for a chat.
