Cafe Baikine

An unidentified bar/club in the fictional Tsjang Tsjang (Dairen) of Lowry's first novel Ultramarine; "And the Miki or the Baikine; you'll probably find plenty of bobbed head tigers in this dump." (Pg.81); Cafe Baikine (Pgs. 85, 104, 109, 115 and 118).

The name is Russian probably relating to the owner who was probably a White Russian refugee.
