It’s the ultimate tour of Krakow nightlife ran by our friendly and fun loving Professional Drunk Guides™. We cater for absolutely anyone who wants to party, from backpackers to local students.
As Krakow’s original Pubcrawl we have over 8 years of crazy experience and throw the biggest and best parties in town.

The price is only 60zl for guys and 55 for girls and there’s discounts for guests crazy enough to make it out a second night Included in the Pub Crawl:
We kick off the party with an hour of unlimited Beer, Wine, Vodka, Rum, Gin, Whiskey, shots and mixers! There’s free Shisha and drinking games like Beer Pong, Flip Cup and Drinking Jenga.
If you want to know the best bars and the tastiest local drinks (or need help getting a cab home!) these are the guys to ask! Most of our staff were guests who loved the city and the nightlife so much they cancelled flights and stayed on to ‘work’
FREE club entrance, queue jump and welcome shots at every venue. With us you’re not wasting your night queuing out in the cold. We jump the queue’s and head straight in to the party, with the first thing at every venue being a shot in your hand!
Why Krakow nightlife?
First came the Slavic tribes and their mythical dragon slayer. Then came the Bohemian dukes and the ambitious monarchs of the Piast Dynasty. Then came the Polish kings and queens of the city’s so-called Golden Age, raising the looming Gothic spires and gilded palaces seen today around the Market Square and Wawel Hill. Krakow then weathered world wars and communist rule alike, finally emerging as the cultural capital of Poland in the 21st century; a place of enthralling museums and mysterious churches, age-old fortifications and criss-crossing cobblestone streets. Oh yea, and the basements turned to bars, the medieval homes transformed to booming clubs, the onetime mansions of merchant guilds became rowdy beer halls, neon lights and karaoke erupted between the squares and something else beautiful and brilliant and downright debaucherous was born: Krakow nightlife.
One popular urban myth has it that this humble city of just one million, sat on the far-flung fringes of the Eastern EU, boasts the highest concentration of cafes, pubs, clubs and bars than any other city on the continent. And while no one’s counting (especially not after a round of deceptively crystal-clear Żubrówka), there’s little doubt that the multitude of dive joints and beer halls, thumping dance floors and Slavic party haunts here makes for a shindig that you’re not likely to forget (or one that you’re certain to, depending on the Żubrówka!).
Krakow’s Old Town is the centre of the action. Once the heart of the medieval city, this maze of stony streets, open squares and hidden alleys is now loaded with more hedonistic potential than any other city in Europe (sorry Budapest, and back off Rome!). The beer is cheap as chips (actually it’s cheaper), the locals know how to party, and there are bucket-list bars by the bucket load.
So, whether you’re craving a quiet cocktail in a smoky Slavic jazz bar, a Long Island in a speakeasy straight out of the 30s, English ales, IPAs and craft beers brewed by local hops heads, a tongue-tingling vodka tasting session with more raspberry rye shots than you can shake a plate of traditional pierogi at (Krakow’s late-night answer to the drunken kebab), a larynx-busting karaoke sesh beneath the cobbles of the Market Square, or a rambunctious blowout in the company of Erasmus students from Spain, backpackers from Belarus, the ubiquitous UK gap yearers, Aussies so tanned they look like Vegemite, chatty local Poles and keg-standing spring breakers from the US, Krakow’s nightlife has you covered!
We, the Krawl Through Krakow have run for almost a decade. In that time we have concocted a recipe for the most outrageous balls to the wall night out you will ever live through. Scenes from the Hangover set in the backdrop of Medieval Europe are what you should picture. It’s a roller coaster of vodka shots, underground bars and clubs, toasting with local nutters and punishing your friends in beer pong. It’s any fun person’s wet dream of a night out!
It all begins with a seemingly innocent brightly coloured wristband, your ticket to the vodka train. We then kickstart our night with a truly unbeatable drinks deal aptly named ‘THE POWER HOUR’. It’s an hour of Unlimited Drinks (and we really really mean Unlimited!), and it’s Rocket Fuel for the fun and debauchery to come. During the Power Hour take advantage of Beer, Rum, Gin, Whiskey or Vodka in shots or mixed with any of the usual softs… As strong and plentiful as you like, as many as you can handle. Order a couple for yourself and save having to make the trip back to the bar, or get a tray for you and your friends. We’re not out to trick you like some lesser pubcrawls in other cities. We’re going to get drunk! We’re going to have fun!
Also featured during the Power Hour: Free Shisha for all pubcrawlers, drinking games (too many to list but some of our favourites are beer pong, flip club, drinking Jenga). We have prize giveaways of pubcrawl t-shirts for people who successfully pass challenges set by our Professional Drunk Guides. It’s the perfect way to break the ice at the start of the night and get the party going! After all of this (and I know it sounds like a lot for the first hour), we hit up three more of Krakow’s top spots. Where exactly varies from night to night. It is totally up to our skilled guides to sniff out where the best party will be. They can smell a good time like a hammerhead shark can find a bleeding diver. You will be treated to welcome shots upon entry and there’s no waiting in line as we skip the queue at each venue. We do NOT believe in pause buttons.
The types of places we tend to find ourselves in vary. They range from cool Polish shot bars, to funky Disco era underground pubs with a stripper pole on the dance floor to grind away on, or kicking karaoke clubs. We end each night in a pumping club where you can party the night away till the early hours. And all the while our professional photographer will record your night with the kind of clarity your pickled hippocampus won’t allow you to. From start to finish the adventures will be set into digital history, and uploaded to our Facebook profile. Freeze frames to testify to a well night well partied.
Our main tenets are thus: – To make sure that EVERY one of our pubcrawlers is kept safe as they explode into the nightlife culture of Poland and Krakow and all it’s awesome little nooks and crannies. – To make sure that Every one of our pubcrawlers has an amazing time and looks back on their night out as the best part of their days spent in the city.
We take Partying Seriously.
