Gdański Bowke

First off – Gdański Bowke? What is it? Well, there’s a dummy outside showing a typical ‘Bówka’ (singular) who could be found cruising the waterfront before the war. The Bowke were casual labourers whose wages earned on the quayside would generally go straight into the bar owners' purses. Thus, the inebriated Bowke generally had a bad reputation in old Danzig. Nevertheless, they were obviously an important part of life in the city and the old-fashioned menu includes a poem in German about them alongside a selection of pre-war advertisements. The menu is concise and offers local dishes washed down with locally-produced beer or the traditional Gdański Bowke Beer. I guess it was inevitable that they would get their own brew!
