If you haven't heard of Niebo yet, then you're not quite ready to graduate from any degree in Wroclaw nightlife. This 24 hour rock bar is a must for the early hours of the morning, and by early we mean early. As the city's popular weekend haunts begin to wind down towards 5am, the party at Niebo is barely underway. Home to drunks, ardent rock fans and hoards of insomniacs, Niebo always has the ingredients for an eventful morning's drinking.
On first sight, you'd probably think Niebo is a bit of a dump – and you'd be right. The worn out furniture and dusty floors more closely resemble a squat than a pub, while the toilets often remind of you ghastly scenes from Trainspotting or Aliens. This isn't really the point though – Niebo is a dive bar, but a bloody good one at that.
Prices are admittedly a tad high for such a place, but the 24hr party reputation surrounding Niebo allows them to get away with it. Where else are you gonna find people dancing like mad at 6am?
If you fancy a bit of the local tipple, go for the toffee vodka. Dangerously sweet and alcoholic, it's exactly the kind of fuel you'll need to feel part of this spirited crowd.
The people who drink in Niebo on a regular basis truly love their rock music, every bit as much as they enjoy the 'anything goes' atmosphere that's synonymous with the place. Headbangers will dance away to Nirvana's 'Smells like Teen Spirit', while goth chicks risk injury performing on the bar Cayote Ugly style. And despite all the noise and crazy goings on, there's still plenty of folk having a wee snooze after their evening's drinking catches up with them.
It's truly something to be seen – just make sure it's not you nodding off in the corner.
