Gdańsk

Obsession

A strip club on the square, whose staff bother you with leaflets incessantly from the moment the sun begins to drop (and recently even at lunchtime). We've heard so many complaints about the prices of drinks and the behaviour of the women, bar staff and doormen, that we advise you to do as we do and avoid this place like the plaque. If you do decide to visit, make sure that you do your business in cash and keep the credit card in your pocket to save any confusion or misunderstandings later. If you need a lawyer, it might not be a bad idea to ask here too - they seem to know the law better than the local government.

Note: Police raided the Obsession club around 02:00 on the morning of July 1, 2017. Initial results of tests of the drinks seized suggest that they contained psychoactive drugs. See our blog for more details of the raid and for follow-up stories. Those held in the raid were all released without charge and police enquiries are ongoing.

Just got back after a very good weekend spoilt only by Obsession. On entering as a group the girls made a bee line for us separating all the lads by sitting between us. We were given shots, dark and light. Thankfully, I had sniffed a rat and didn't stay too long. Although long enough to pay 245 zloty for a vodka for the girl who was sat with me... Thankfully this girl tipped me off and i got out. My friend however, wasnt so lucky and had his Credit Card damaged by £545.00.... I paid cash even though they begged for my card. one customer returned asking for his phone and was shown the exit very quickly. Very seedy place with a bad atmosphere. Theyre are better venues. I would stay clear, unlike my memory the day after.

Bad experience in club. i was Invited by a man who was working for the club while i was walking in the main street. and i went there. I started to drink and the girls gave me free shots and i rejected and they forced me to drink. they say it is tradition in poland you have to drink . After that i didnt remember all what was happened. only getting private show. But i remember one ting when i was paying and put my visa in to payment machine the girl say that your card has been rejected, you must enter pin one more,again and again. Next day when checked my account paid 11500 PLN as reservation in total with in 2 hours.

They keep on scamming people by getting them drunk or drugged because this mafia know that police won't do enough to get rid of them. There seems to be a "don't care about attitude" on the part of the police. When I went to report it, nobody spoke English and didn't seem to care about what happened to us. That's a shame if you want to be a European country. Police are not trained to deal with crime in a touristc place like Gdansk.

Ich wurde hier betäubt und beraubt. Alle Kreditkarten komplett abgeräumt. Körperlich bedroht. Extrem kriminell. Am liebsten würde ich den Laden in die Luft jagen!

It happened also to us as well! How they can still doing it!? After midnight at Saturday October 7th 2017, we went to the Obsession Club. Strippers joined us and totally filled our throat with something special drinkmix. Then came almoust totally Black Out. So soon and easier. Next day my gredit- and debit-card have about 600 EUR (2,580 PLN) reservations and my friend more than 2,200 EUR (9,900 PLN). Completely criminal activity. You will never go to Obsession Club in Gdansk! All the staff there know what is all about. Starting from strippers. And they dont shame or care. It is so sad that we still have country in Europe, where you can´t trust the staff, you have to use cash, pay immediately and know the prices before ordering. This is also Obsessions business-idea, they trust that people are ashamed to start over to find out afterwards, what really happened and get their money back in one way or another...

STAY AWAY! I went there last night, bought one beer ne one shot and I can''t remember anything after that but only getting a private show, leaving the club angry because of something connected to the payment and woke up with a wound on my face. DONT GO THERE! I just wait for my bank to tell me which payments have been made.

Last Saturday, I was for sure drugged and robbed 30.000 zł from my credit cards in this very club! Unfortunately, I didn’t know about its bad reputation 🙁 Normally, I can say “no” to e.g. buying 30 roses for 1000 zł, but not this time. I’m devastated, and have of cause reported it to the police. But as you write, probably, they can do nothing.

I would call the police in Poland and report the crime first of all. There is an ongoing investigation being handled by the Gdansk police. Their contact details are here. http://www.gdansk.policja.gov.pl/kontakt.php?k=8&a=259 In case there is nobody there who can speak English, I suggest you call the tourist helpline who might be able to put in contact with the right person. +48 608 599 999

I had a very bad experience 2 weeks ago. Drinking 1 drink in this club has cost me € 5.800! My bank or the police in my country can not do anything! Can anyone give me a suggestion how to handle this problem?

Never go to Obsession! Don''t even think about it! Strip clubs in Gdansk are connected with the mafia, and it''s a scam all of it. Went to Obsession, and didn''t read anything about the nightlife in advance. My first mistake! This club have approx. 20 people working in the main walking streets, trying to lure you in to the club, telling you to get cheap drinks and watch beautyful girls dance on stage and the chance of a private dance. In the club the girls are pretty and will give a little public show, but they will try really hard to get you to pay for a private dance in a closed booth. They will then give you a lot of alcohol shots for free, only to make sure you get insane drunk, and then they will come and charge you for an insane amount of money. The "manager" will tell you that they only accept card, and not cash. Should have thought that it was fishy by now, but a naive man, with good experience from other strip clubs in Europe/Baltics, thought "well, guess it''s ok". It was not! When you then evidentally get tricked to actually push the pin-number of your card, they will try to hide the screen from you, so you can''t see the price. If you actually see it, they will tell you it''s something wrong with the decimals, or that''s the way it''s written in Poland. They multiplied the price with 10. So when I checked my bank account the next day, the withdrew amount was 500 euros, and not 50 euro as planned. They even try to say that your card has been rejected, so that you must enter pin once more. Only to pay that crazy amount even two or three times. When you the next day come to complain, they will say that you had the chance to view the price, and that you are free to pay whatever you''d like, even though it wasn''t what you agreed in first place. The locals say that it''s all rigged with mafia connections, and the police doesn''t do anything about it. What actually have happened is that the police arrest you for drunken disorder, or anything like that, and can detain you for 24 hours. TL;dr; Be smart, stay away! Worst strip club ever! I had to pay a crazy amount of money that I really didn''t have, and I got away lightly. They have hustled a lot people for a lot more money than the 2600 zloty I was hustled for.

just a trap!!! i just went there just to drink some whisky and i would go to my hotel. I didn''t want to have a lap dance or sth else. But they forced me to drink some shots too much which were free. I don''t know maybe they put some drugs on it. I really don''t remember how I became so drunk. Normally I do not get so much drunk. Finally I vomited and they wanted to take about 35 zloty from me.. well the same game.. they got 3500 zloty from me 3 times until the end of limit of my credit card. And they asked about another card.. they got 11000 zloty at total. the day after I went to police and told everything. Now I am waiting for the news from policeman.. they told me that it will take so long time.. maybe 4 months to result.. so keep away yourself or do not go there with a credit card.. it is a shame of poland

Nothing less than a scam, probably twice as expensive as your home country and borderline legal. Yes you will get a lap dance from a beautiful girl but you will pay circa 140 zloty just for buying her a drink and they will aggressively try and make you stay/milk whatever money you have). The sooner these criminals are shut sown and arrested the better until then Polish law is a total joke!

Really bad things happening there. You get a private show and she gives you allot of alcohol. Then the "accountmanager"comes in with a pin machine and ask you to pay 300 slotties (that 75,-euro) but the accountmanager makes mistakes (uhmm on purpose) it is nog 300 but 3000. 2 days later I found that they had discount euro 2250,-. The shows are fun but they make you drunk and you pay.. alot. Good luck there my friends.

Total rip off. Would not let me leave after only 30 mins early in evening at 5 pm. I had plenty of Polish zloty to pay but burly doorman blocked door you leave until I gave my card and number.very intimidating. Checked bank next morning and found that they had stolen £ 250 for one beer !! Pure conmen and robbers. Also heard from my hotel that they often spike people's drink with ryphonol and gbh...especially if you are a lone man like I was. Avoid like the plague. This was on Friday 4th November at 5pm.
