Whilst exploring Gdansk city centre one evening as a solo traveller I was approached by two beautiful girls who attempted to persuade me to accompany them into a local bar nearby. I stood there with them and told them I knew about the reports of people being scammed in this way as I had done some research before visiting.
The girls kept looking toward a guy on the door of the bar and obviously had a signal from him because they turned on their gorgeous high heels mid conversation and walked off once it was obvious I was not falling for their scam.

I was there 1st time based on a taxi driver recommendation. I paid by card 400ZL and got the receipt. When I came out, I checked my mobile and 4000Zl was charged. Thank god I have that much limit only on my card otherwise they would have charged everything until the limit had reached. I asked in the bar how come I have been charged this much. Instead of saying anything, Bouncer came and thrown me out. I checked my purse, they have stolen 300Zl and also my Watch ( 1000Zl) from the pocket. the lady in the room was also a thief. everyone is there to loot the foreigners. Complaining police won’t help. Bouncers in such clubs are retired/working policeman. first or formest thing I did was to call the bank and block my card. This is not about one club in Krakow but all the strip/nightclubs across the city. if you really want to have fun then either go to the message center or to a call girl.

I was drunk and the staff managed to slip something stronger in my drink. No recollection at all what happend in the next three hours. Lost about 8k€ on my card. I made a report to the Police but don’t have too high hopes. Beware and just don’t go there.

I was ripped off by 8k Zloty!!!. I have to admit that I was drunk but thx to my limits on my cards I didnt spend much more.

The prices were allegedly for 2 bottles of champagne and 5 mins of a stripshow. I wish I’ve never visited the club!

PLEASE AVOID!!!

A man comes over with a card machine asking for payment not long after they served us the drinks when I took out my card to make payment. Shortly after the man said the card was declined and I then suggested I can pay cash which I should of done in the first place!!!!! but I guess this was the trick to clone your card!! As soon as this happened the girls left and after we drank up so did we. Next morning all hell let loose with my bank trying to contact me due to repeated attempts of large amounts trying to be debited from my account. The name of the company trying to charge theese large amounts was appearing as dionizos svetlana ivano. When doing some research online this company based at szewska 18, krakow, poland. Also at this address is the pub called Hard candy which is referred to in this forum!!

Please be aware of a dodgey pub at 35 szpitalna street!

Usual story cajoled in by 2 girls. paid excessive amount for drinks on card and when left numerous fraudulent transactions were made due to cloning of card! Been to many European cities and had no trouble in Prague, Bucharest, Sofia, Ljubljana to name a few! shame as its a lovely city but just cant recommend until it cleans up its act! not to mention the dodgey taxi’s and bureau de change’s!!

Theese clubs are really bad to this beautiful town, where you can get so much in one place.
A large beer in a nice music pub will cost you 10 zloty, and a cheap “champagne” in these clubs will probably cost you 1000 zloty.
I saw more than 20 boys and girls trying to lure tourists in just a short walk arround the big market square.
. . . it makes me sad that the authorities are absent.
