    Black Gallery: Yet another cellar!!

    by boltonian Updated Feb 23, 2008

    Meant to be a bar full of 'local nutcases' according to the guidebook.

    Was very quiet when we went. Unique angle was that there is a small balcony that you must climb a ladder to reach.

    Health and Safety?????

    Open form 17:00 - 04:00

    Theu used to have the most famous 'Kamikadze' drink in town. It's the place where my friends and I have been coming since we were 17. It actually had its time already... although still very nice in summer time with its garden outside, it's not that nice in winter. There are not that many people coming here anymore cuz it got dangerous some time ago and most regular customers changed it for other places.
    It's one of Krakow classics though, known by every local.

    no two bars in krakow are the same,each bar as its own uniqueness,yes there are many cellar bars,with many different themes.but look around and see the creativeness of the people.i had a good conversation with the bar manager,who happened to be a big fan of u2 like myself.nice atmosphere.

    Dress Code: casual,jeans and t shirt would be fine.

    living it up in krakow.

    Black Gallery: "Kamikadze" drink :-)

    The name "Black Gallery " originates from gallery which was earlier in this place.
    It's not so crowded place as Paparazzi on the opposite side of Mikolajska, and it's cheaper place. Rather classical, older place located in underground cellars with quite nice (in summer only) garden - quite popular place to meet a few friends. You can go there if there is no seats in "Paparazzi" especially. Hmm... staff is not so good, security seems to be not always enough (many drunk young people).

    Opening hours: 3pm - last consumer.

    Funny names of quite good drinks: "Kamikadze", "Skorpion", "Wsciekly Pies = Furious/Mad Dog" - the last one was the best for me.

    Two cellars - both for smoking; self-service, music: rock, acid jazz, hip hop, sometimes techno; youth and students are common customers. More famous guests were: Steven Spielberg, Ben Kingsley, Fish (Marilion), J.C. van Damme.

    Dress Code: No specified.

    Black Gallery: Best pub in Kraków

    by maverickmaverick Written Oct 9, 2002

    My favourite pub in Kraków is "Black Gallery", is very nice and has a cool terrace for summer evenings. The atmosphere there is pretty nice and most of the clients are students... and the most important thing, there you can taste the best "Kamikadze" in the city.
    It's open everyday from 15:00 till the last guest leave.

    Dress Code: casual dress are ok

    Krakow has a host of great and very different places to go out, you will never be bored. Black Gallery had a great beer garden in the back, with these heating devices that made it warm enough to sit outside in October!
