Check out this new Factotum cafe in the very heart of Gdansk with its standing out interior design and probably the most unusual menu in town.

The place brings out so many interesting associations and allusions because of it's bohemian, decadent and somewhat S&M interior:

black and white rhomb shaped tiled floors, shiny black plexiglass wall with 3 old German black typewriters serving as candle holders, old picture frames lit from inside; black leather quilted sofas and heavy upholstered old-style chairs; metallic cushions; little red lamp shades, which are the very zest of this interior.

The place made me feel like I found myself in Germany of the 1940ies, even though it is extremely modern. If you are a 'visual type' person, like me, you'd very much feel at home here. Oh, and the music is very well chosen and goes in line with the whole mood.

If you like this you can also check out Ferber and Indygo.

Hi Olga,
No doubt the decoration is really original and I've became aware that Gdansk has a lot of these special bar/cafes where you can get together with your friends and have a nice time. We also have some of these places in Lisbon, not so modern but original enough to take you there the next time you visit us. Will you come again this Summer? Don't forget we are waiting for you and Arek and distances between us has been shortening with the years. :) Bye my dear and hope you are improving well from your knee. Hugs
