Łódź’s commitment to hedonism is on a par with Poland’s capital. For the unadventurous, a straight-forward pub crawl down ulica Piotrkowska is the way to go, though stand advised that some of the best drinking dens in town are found squirrelled away on the back streets and side alleys. Follow your nose.
During the warmer months the streets, particularly Piotrkowska, are thronged with beer gardens. Once the chillier weather starts to move in the party shifts back inside and downstairs. Bear in mind that the opening hours we list are flexible: most bars will stay open as long as drinkers are drinking. Clubs often charge an entry fee, many of which are based on what’s on offer that night.
