Beaches might restore the soul during the day, but beach bars are where you seek refuge at night! Because these are the hottest locations in the town in a happening city like Wrocław.

And that’s exactly the reason why the city beach bars are so essential in the Wrocław nightlife scene. This city, located in southwestern Poland, might not have prolific sea beaches with gleaming sand and crashing waves reflecting the heavenly blue like the Baltic coast. But the Lower Silesian capital is endowed with the terrific nature that thrives around the Odra river.

That’s why in 2015, the foundation of Zazoo Beach Bar was laid. To this day, it is the leader in its segment. Over the years, several new beach bars popped up by the banks of the Odra.

Looking around, one can glimpse a bunch of locations in the city, either canvassed by a thick nature canopy or skirted by the Odra river that makes for a stunning tourist attraction in Wrocław. These nature spaces also work as a unique setting to sit and chill with friends on a pleasant summer evening while sipping some chilled craft beer.

Pandemic had a crushing impact on the city beach bars, but eventually, 2021 was the year for them to make a sunsetional comeback. With a few newcomers in the town, 2022 looks quite promising for the Wrocław city chillout bars.
