Whilst not quite in the same league as the party town of Sopot up the coast, Gdansk is certainly not without its nightlife and party scene. This is a lively town once the sun goes down and clubbing and pubbing comes to life. Gdansk nightlife is a varied affair. You’ll find hedonistic clubs nestled alongside intimate bars, plenty of options for an evening of Polish snacking and drinking, as well as a balance of fun and frivolity.
When it comes to Gdansk Nightlife, taking your pick requires a little advance planning to prevent stumbling upon less salubrious places you’d rather avoid, and making the most of your time in this vibrant town. Our top picks are listed below with our map.
Gdansk Nightlife – Clubs
Although Gdansk doesn’t have a huge amount of choice when it comes to dancing and clubbing, what it has got is worth seeking out. There are a few standard options in the student area, but if you’re looking for a night of dancing and partying with a little more stle then you’ll find it, you just need to know where to look. Once you do, you’ll be glad.
Make way for Gdansk’s nightlife statement with a whopping 6 storey concrete cube, once an air raid shelter/bunker/battery hybrid and now an immersive colossal club. Being the only building to survive the intense bombing of Gdansk in WW2, you really do feel you’re not just on a night out, but a part of history.
There is a maze of bars, dance areas, and chill out areas. Every floor is distinct and utterly memorable, and not something you’d normally expect from a clubbing night (electric chair and cages anyone?!). Prices are reasonable, staff are upbeat and friendly and the music is eclectic.
You’ll need to have heard of this place as you’re not going to just stumble across it. Concealed within a staggering and impressive warehouse slap bang in the middle of Gdansk’s shipyards, this is a venue to keep an eye on. They frequently host events, and performances, so it’s worth checking out what’s on whilst you’re in town.
A classic student nightspot with a yong crowd and pumping tunes. This is disco encapsulated, open week round.
This is end of week night club with plenty of floor space for an infamous Polish party. Hedonistic vibes combined with a large amount of alcohol makes this a central spot for attracting the hen and stag parties.
However, it doesn’t stop there and there are frequently live music options as well as shows and cabaret.
Centrally located, head downstairs in to a classic nightspot, mostly enjoyed by those out of their student days. It’s fun, it’s crazy.
Situated alongside the river is a well-loved club offering mainstream music with a combination of dancing and seating. What’s good about this club is you’ll find everyone welcomed here, and that makes for a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
