Situated on the ground floor of the spectacularly modern Sheraton Hotel, on the banks of the Vistula River just along from the Royal Castle on Wawel Hill, Someplace Else recreates the American Sports Bar tradition in the heart of historic Krakow.
You can enter either via the hotel’s main entrance or through its dedicated front door, where you’re immediately confronted by a large lozenge-shaped room dominated by the similarly-proportioned bar in the centre. Sporting and Rock’n’Roll memorabilia adorn the walls, and there are some nine or so plasma screens strategically positioned. The bar is very popular with Krakow expats, as they are able to show just about any sporting event if it’s available on cable or satellite (and you ask nicely). The number and positioning of the screens mean that different events can be shown simultaneously.
So that’s the sports, now for the refreshments! A generous list of beers from around the world means a wider choice than available in many Krakow bars, and the service is generally very easy on the eye as well. Food-wise, there’s a fairly extensive choice of eats in the Tex-Mex area – burgers, chillies, nachos and the like – as well as tasty snacks from around the world. The head chef is also the executive chef of the Polish national football team, so presumably has some experience in catering for hungry sportsmen.
In the warmer months there is also a delightful and shady summer garden where you can sit outside in leafy tranquillity. It’s perhaps also worth mentioning that Someplace Else is smoker-friendly and well air-conditioned, which may have an influence on your choice. Either way, it must be considered one of the best spots in Krakow to enjoy sports events over a beer and a bite.
