Not every visitor to Krakow wants to follow up their trip to some old heritage site by sipping an over-priced cocktail in desperately trendy surroundings to a background of virtually inaudible jazz music. For the younger person whose idea of a good time is to enjoy a few bevies and treat their friends to their matchless rendition of 'Hit Me Baby One More Time', somewhere a little less stuffy is required. Coyote is one such that is hugely popular and just off Krakow's Main Square.
Open from early afternoon until dawn, with a smoke-free atmosphere and frequent cut-price drink and early-bird offers, Coyote draws a budget-conscious party crowd. Attractions such as live music, karaoke and darts make this one of the top spots in town for those who wanting both a good night out and good value as well.
Situated in two generous underground rooms – in typical Krakow fashion – on the corner of Tomasza Street and the hard-to-pronounce but newly renovated Szczepanski Square, Coyote's modest exterior gives little clue to what lies beneath. But once inside you encounter a space devoted to the twin pleasures of drinking and partying; severe steel décor contrasting with the traditional cellar style. In the summer months there's also a rather pleasant courtyard garden, ideal for getting your breath, or your voice, back.
All in all, then, Coyote delivers all that it promises. The oldies may prefer somewhere more sedate, but if you've the energy to party until the sun comes up, you'll want to put Coyote Bar on your list of places not to miss in Krakow.
