Pretty much every bar in Kraków offers amazing vodka. Vodka is the poison of choice in Poland and drinking it is a local ritual. Here are some great places that serve great vodka and allow you to take part in this country’s local life in the amazing city of Kraków:
This self-proclaimed home of vodka should be first on your list of places to try vodka in Kraków. It is a cozy bar with a really nice atmosphere and has every conceivable flavour of vodka you could think of. A really popular way to find your favourite one is to get a tasting sampler of six vodkas of your choice for 25-30 złoty. It won’t disappoint. An added bonus is the friendly and accommodating bartenders.
This is the place that seems to have started the wide vodka availability in every corner of Kraków. You’ll want to come for the best pickled herring in the city, which goes great with vodka. They also have cheap shots and cheap beer.
The food menu here really is amazing and the staff is incredibly friendly. However, the star of the show is the divine and extensive list of homemade vodkas, especially the pear, ginger, apricot and herbs & spices. The prices are also pretty inexpensive!
This is by the far the one with the best interior design with a retro mishmash of antique furnishings and 1920s decorations in the edgy Kazimierz district. The classic Polish vodka shots in a rainbow of different flavours still manage to steal the show. There’s also a great range of mixed long drinks and the city’s best range of absinthe.
