Piec Art Acoustic Jazz Club is perhaps the most visible of all the jazz venues in the middle of the city’s Old Town. Located between the thumping trance and dance bars of Szewska Street, it offers a medley of chilled acoustic music sessions and unusual local acts in the cellar beneath its main entrance. There’s a fully-stocked bar upstairs, with some fine cocktails and al fresco seating, along with a back room that’s got plenty of small alcoves to retire to and chat following the gig.

There’s many a local jazz fan who simply wouldn’t consider ever heading anywhere other than Klub U Muniaka. Nestled at the very end of bustling Florianska Street, this subterranean cellar bar has all the features you’d expect of a classic Polish music joint. There’s hardly a smile to be had from the owners, but there’s plenty of excellence in the line-up of acts. What’s more, the place is tight-knit and intimate, with a small stage set under the vaulted medieval ceiling of the underground bar space, candle-lit tables and fine acoustics to boot.
