Not that I don’t like the unstable wooden chairs and tables – they’re fantastic, and truly characteristic for this city. In fact, before I went out for drinks anywhere outside Krakow, I was sure that’s how it always is in bars and cafes.However, it’s good to have something else in town. Bomba is wonderful because it’s a compromise between the old and the modern. Its interior is not “wobbly” or a yet another antique store look-alike, but also, it’s far from the cold design which can be seen in other places, which just want to be modern and chic.
In Bomba you can sit during the day (plus, there are a few tables outside) as well as spend long evenings and nights. Beer doesn’t cost more than usual (8 zl), but there are obviously other alcohols and soft drinks to choose from. Sometimes, in the evenings there are also concerts on the ground floor (didn’t I mention this? Being quite spacious, it has a sort of an entresol). It’s not overly crowded, nor is it empty, it can be good for studying, but in the evenings it can change into a more party place. Visited by mostly young people, it is, at least for me, a modern version of old Krakow cafes.
