Back to the riverfront we go! With the Wisła heating up for summer, all eyes are on Barka Wynurzenie, one of the great, big hits of recent years. Accessed over a bouncy gangplank, find this classic barge venue – its deck strung with hammocks – anchored close to the Copernicus Science Center.
As before, there’s two sides to the story: at the top end, a bar retailing craft beers from Poland’s radical breweries, and on the other, a busy food counter (the Kukpit) that’s all bang and clatter. Here, Eastern street tastes are the name of the game, with a blackboard menu featuring Asian meatballs with ginger, garlic and lashings of hoi-sin, and Indian-style chicken marinated in coriander, mint, garlic and hot pepper.
With water slapping against the side of this creaky vessel, and streams of sunlight sloping under the awnings, it’s the food you need alongside a beer. But there’s more to Wynurzenie than just seasonal chillout. Rock by each Tuesday and Friday at 10 to flaunt your tatts and take part in morning Capoeira classes: the crowd is fun, cool and straight from the city’s Glory Years of Hipster.
