Directions to The Piano Rouge
Situated on the Northern side of the Main Square and brought to you by the same people who run Stalowe Magnolie, Piano Rouge shares that venue's predominantly red ambience whilst adding a restaurant to the mix. Live music features every night, with the emphasis on smooth melodic jazz with occasional excursions into funky soul, R&B and Latin sounds.
Passing through the entrance, Piano Rouge welcomes you with red-carpeted stairs leading you down to the first of three opulently furnished basement rooms. The main bar deserves a mention all of its own, featuring highly polished wood and decorated with piano keys curving along its edge. Richly upholstered chaises-longues, crystal chandeliers and liberal splashes of gold and silver gilt are set off against exposed original stonework on the walls and ceilings.
As a club and restaurant combined, the menu is classic with just a hint of New York Italian - good if you like Caesar salad or salad Nicoise. But if you want something more flamboyant than pasta, Piano Rouge has half a dozen or so signature dishes, such as Baked Roast Boar in Forest Mushroom Sauce served with Rosemary Potatoes and Wine-soaked Pear, or Roast Salmon with Red Onion and Zucchini Sauce, Grilled Tomato and Broccoli, to name but two.
By no means one of Krakow's cheaper venues, nevertheless Piano Rouge is one of the very few that qualifies as a 'must-see', with its exceptional décor, consistently high quality music, and impressive restaurant menu and service. Indeed it's fair to say there's really nothing quite like this anywhere else in Europe - a good choice for anyone wishing to enjoy a really special night out.
