Just an evening photo that conveys a relaxed atmosphere at 100cznia.

 

The 100cznia (pronounced as Stotchnia) is a cultural project that transfers the places we know from large European cities, directly to Gdansk. Cargo containers from the Gdansk Shipyard helped to create an ecosystem that attracts travelers to a combination of artistic disorder, power of cultural events, flawless quality food and a casual, friendly atmosphere that makes every guest feel satisfied. There are hundreds of reasons to drop by for a coffee, lunch, drink, family picnic, walk, bike trip, spontaneous meeting, romantic dance with your loved one and lots of other occasions you will never regret going for! 

Tattoo yourself, do designer shopping, commune with art, watch a movie on the 100 years old wall… It seems, we can keep on forever. Come on, the Stotchnia awaits!

The lower downtown in Gdańsk, called “Dolne miasto” is a dynamic, fast-developing district, especially blooming with the recent city renovations. 

Make sure to stop by for a lunch at “Spożywczy Food & Drinks” – an unusual environmental-friendly restaurant on Dolna 2 street. They specialise exactly in traditional polish cuisine with a modern twist. Their menu is mostly based on seasonal products and they only buy from local, well-known and trusted suppliers.

The name of the restaurant “Spożywczy”, in English has the meaning of a “grocery store”. An interesting fact: in the exact place of the restaurant, back in the days before democracy,  there was an actual grocery store, the line to which sometimes reached several blocks in lenght! Times have changed a bit, so do not miss the opportunity to have a good time here, since it has become much easier and enjoyable 🙂

 

Elephant Club, Długi Targ 41/42

 

    “The most important detail of the restaurant’s exterior is, basically, its entrance.” – some wise restaurant designer. 

 

 

 

An absolute benchmark among all the clubs in Gdansk, the Elephant Club has been pleasing its dear guests for almost 16 years! First-class professional service, chefs` reverent attitude to their dishes, the opportunity to enjoy the view of the main architectural gem of the city – Długi Targ Street in warm weather, and have a great time inside, enjoying the exquisite interior of the restaurant, made in the style of 20th century music – beautiful vintage photos of various icons of the last age – from Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley to Sting and even famous Polish musicians. Feel that special atmosphere?

In the Elephant Club, music is not only contained on pictures – every week, and sometimes even more often, musicians become guests of honor, performing exclusively real, live music! The main genre is, of course, the beloved Jazz, but since there are a lot of performers who want to present their music in this club, you can actually hear all sorts of other genres. In short, visit the club yourself, take your friends and family with you, and have your own, unique and unforgettable experience at the Elephant Club!

Cooltura, Okopowa 7

 
Cooltura Chmielna 101 Gdansk • Official Info [2022 February Update]
         Just a happy crowd of party people enjoy their time in a friendly atmosphere!

       We’re joking. Everything is much more crazy. Come, charge yourself with positive energy!

 

 

Quirky, grungey, and unique.
They have bus seats for chairs, restrooms covered in graffitti and baby dolls hanging from the ceiling. The place is totally out of its mind!

 Generally very good DJs. This specific place is reportedly great for artsy people in their twenties or anyone who simply likes to party.

Rest assured, you can never know what the real night life in Gdansk is before you visit the Cooltura on Okopowa 7 street!
