This place serves great drinks, and at relatively good value for a tourist haunt.
The decor is really funky, with photos of all sorts of celebrities, particularly supermodels, pop-stars, etc slapped all over the walls.
Layout of the place is good, allowing you to huddle together in groups in several corners. In proportions, it's a narrow but deep joint.
You can easily while time away trying to guess whose photos are displayed. Many celebrities are from their very early days, some even before their 'discovery'. So, can make for good guessing games, because if you look properly there is a trail leading to the stars as we know them now!! Cool concept, eh?
Dress Code: Smart casual.
This was a very nice place to have a drink, waitress service, etc., however, I felt that I could have been almost anywhere in Europe, and not just in Poland.
Also the drinks are more expensive here than other places. And, although waitress service is nice, we preferred the more 'traditional' & smaller cellar bars. One reason was because myself and friends enjoyed actually going to the bar to order drinks even if our Polish language attempts were pathetic and so most bar staff ended up speaking in English to us - hey, at least we tried!!
Dress Code: Not too scruffy.
The Paparazzi is an unusually posh place for Krakow, but it does have style, nice staff, interesting photos on the walls, and it's probably the place to see and be seen in Krakow. Since prices are slightly higher than elsewhere you might want to benefit from the Happy Hour which is daily between 5-7pm. Cocktails are around 15-20 pln.
Krakow is the city of pubs and you will hardly find any club here.
If you have had enough of Krakow's cellar bars, Paparazzi is a refreshing change.
Paparazzi is one of nicest pubs here with lots of great pictures on the walls and... they serve THE BEST DRINKS in town!
Caparinia, Margarita, Long Island, Ice Tea, Black Russian, Sex On The Beach and hundreds more. You can try favorite drink of Philip Marlowe - detective from the novel by Chandler - coctail gimlet.
Music: usually pop, poprock or acid jazz - they should improve the quality of equipment (speakers), I suppose.
Very, very good staff (with very few exceptions in the past, they released them, I think), attention men: very pretty waitresses.
Over-crowded in summer Fri-Sat (come earlier or - if no place - go oposite side of Mikolajska Street to Black Gallery :-), rather not very cheap place but much cheaper then in Paris for example - drinks surely worth of their price.
I've met there tourists from the USA, Norway and Sweden :-)). This cosmopolitan bar which also offers excellent salads, pastas, chili con carne and sometimes even bagels.
Mon - Fri 11.00am - midnight
Sat - Sun 3pm - 1am or to the last consumer :-).
Dress Code: A little more formal in the evenings then T-shirt and jeans although... if you like...
There is one thing you have to know about Krakow's nightlife. It's the city of pubs and you will hardly find any club here. And if you do... well, the kind of people partying there is... (I don't want to offend anybody, so lets just say)... not my kind. Paparazzi is one of nicest pubs here with lots of great pictures on the walls and on the ceiling... and they serve the best drinks in town!
Another Mag hangout and must say, it would not be my first choice otherwise...lol. Went for lunch and had a nice pasta plate, but it was my first day in Poland and wanted some authentic Polish food. It looks amazingly like a US bar and that is what attracts the young crowd, but if I wanted a NYC bar, I would go to NYC. It is a nice enough place however and the company was great.
very much the type of bar,me and my wife like.no different to the bars we frequent at home.
Dress Code: casual,but smart.jeans were fine.
