Entertain yourself with friends

student entertainment in Lodz

 

Clubs

 

* these are places where you can party more actively
than in a pub ;) they organise concerts, disco,
stand-up comedies, karaoke or theme parties

* you may become an object of door selection (usually,
people who are too drunk or behave agressively won’t get inside) or have to pay entrance fee

* people usually start clubbing after 8pm and the later
it gets, the harder it is to find a free table, especially
at weekends, so it pays off to reserve seats earlier
by phone

Pubs

 

* pubs are the most popular places for spending
evenings with friends, especially if you just
want to chat and drink beer

* at weekends, it might be hard to find a place to sit
in pubs along Piotrkowska St. after 8pm

* almost every pub has a different, stylish interior
some of Łódź pubs have dance floors, but for places specialised in dancing check our club list

* at weekends, there are concerts in many pubs,
sometimes you might have to pay some entrance fee (5-30 zł)

* beer is definitely the main drink! Its price varies from
4 to 9 zł for half a liter. Snacks (crisps, peanuts) are usually much more expensive than in stores. Some pubs offer toasts, French fries or sandwiches.

* music in pubs and clubs is usually loud, so prepare
to shout if you want to have a conversation...

* be prepared for cigarette smoke – until now, only
few pubs have non-smoking areas

* in summer, all pubs in Piotrkowska St. open so-called ‘beer-gardens’ – light, canopied structures allowing
you to have a drink outside in the street
