Five great places to drink beer in Gdansk

Where should you go for excellent beer, a great atmosphere and good company in Gdansk? We’ve been out researching the city’s bars and discovered the coolest places to quench your thirst with the locals.

AleBrowar

Possibly Gdansk’s hottest microbrewery, this place is up there with Copenhagen's Mikkeller or To Øl when it comes to ingenious flavors, names and labels. Three young brewers are the brains behind the beers, which are served at Gdansk’s hippest bars and now also have one of their very own in Gdynia. Great music, cool clientele and helpful staff.

A great night out may very well start – and end – at Jozef K. You’ll quickly feel at home at this eclectic-chic bar spread across two floors, where armchairs, flea-market treasures and colorful lamps create an intimate atmosphere without seeming overly designed. The beer, the excellent cocktails and a fabulous playlist of hits old and new make it hard to leave.

Cathead Multitap

Cathead is a relatively new but very popular pub, with 28 different local and international specialty beers, an outdoor terrace that extends right down to the river and a super-central location in the old town. They also serve cocktails and occasionally have live music.

Degustatornia

Czech beer, Belgian beer, Polish beer, Ukrainian beer... Degustatornia is like an international summit meeting of 160 different specialty beers. The bar is housed in an old half-timbered building behind the Hilton hotel, just a stone’s throw from the riverside walk, and provides an authentic pub atmosphere, with plenty of beer regalia, exposed brick walls and customers who are there to party.

Café Lamus & Lawendowa 8

Hip little café-bar with funky, large-pattern wallpaper, 1960s modernism and bicycles on the ceiling. Great for both coffee and beer, not least at sister pub Lawendowa 8 next door. Here you’ll find the same owners, the same hip clientele and plenty of specialty beers and ciders from Poland and abroad. Lawendowa serves pub grub from 8pm at the weekends, but if you arrive hungry on a weekday, there are food trucks right outside on the square by Hala Targowa market hall.
