Located in a former bathhouse in the heart of Kazimierz, the Klezmer Hois is a unique Kraków institution that cannot be missed. Situated just 100 meters from the Remuh Synagogue, adding an evening visit to the Klezmer House – complete with traditional Jewish music and Polish cuisine – is an easy way to experience a slice of the old Jewish traditions of Kraków.
Authentically decorated and home to a large menu of delicious, hearty Galician Jewish food, the atmosphere of the Klezmer house is one-of-a-kind. Reviving the pre-war feel of Jewish Kazimierz by hosting nightly concerts, the Klezmer Hois has made a name for itself among international artists, actors, musicians, poets and painters. Celebrity guests of this culinary institution include Stephen Spielberg, Prince Charles, Roman Polański and many other notable visitors.
At Klezmer Hois, you’ll find delectable classics including an array of zupa (soup), knische (a Russian Pierog Pie), Litvak-style herring and scrumptious kreplach, to name just a few. The restaurant has no shortage of teas and coffees, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages thanks to its fully-equipped bar and you can enjoy your food (and the delectable decor) as you listen to live traditional klezmer music which starts at every evening at 8pm. While reservations are not necessary they are suggested for large parties or special occasions.
