Jazz Club u Muniaka, Krakow
Visited here on our last night (Wed) after a lovely dinner nearby.
Arrived 10.30 pm. Paid our entrance charge (10 zly each) to be told the band were on a break.
Only 2 other customers who soon left. 2 other groups of lads came in but soon left when asked
to pay entrance charge. After waiting half hour with no sign of any music, we got up to leave.
The bar lady asked us not to go & raised the band ( a quartet fronted by an alto sax )They came
on stage, played 3 numbers & then announced another break. We left!
Not poor jazz, just poor attitude.
If you love jazz and saxophone sounds it's place just for you. Jazz concerts (or rather jazz sessions) takes place every Thurday, Friday and Saturday 9.30pm - 1.30am.
"u Muniaka" means "at Muniak's" Who is Muniak? Janusz MUNIAK is one of the best (I think the best) jazzman in Poland, he plays saxophone - unforgettable sounds, must go there to listen to him, even if these 2 cellars are too small, there are too many people inside, most of them is smoking and the air-condition is hmm... not so fast to cool and clean the air.
You can buy Muniak's CDs or MCs in numeourus music stores in the Old Town.
Nice staff, but I can say that music is better there then a pub itself. Beer - 1.25US$/Euro.
Opening hours: 5pm - last customer.
Dress Code: As you like - rather hot place inside.
