Pubs and bars

Bielsko-Biała is not short of cozy pubs and lively bars if you know where to go. The Old Town seems to be the main scene for all the drinking and socializing, and most of the pubs are located in the Old Town Square or clustered in the side streets.

Since beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in the country, you should expect a wide range of beers to choose from. Different cocktails are also available, but good wine is hard to come by in most of the local pubs and bars.

Most of the partying happens on weekends, so pubs tent to be the busiest on Fridays and Saturdays, while on workdays they can be half empty.

As a general rule of thumb, the pubs in Poland are self-service, which means that you need to get your drink at the bar and pay for it upfront. Tips are rare, although some bars will have a jar with a note tips/napiwki.
