What’s In A Name?
You may ask, why Cowan’s? Who is this the man behind this mysterious name? Is it pronounced Cohen? Kowahn? Well, you would be right to think more pastorally and if you let out a good ‘moo’ you’ll have the pronunciation down pat – Cowan’s: (ˈkau̇-whuns)
The name is that of John Cowan, long time proprietor of the Nutley Pub, landlord, good friend, and everyone’s favorite accountant. Keeping in line with the history of the space, the bar is named in his honor.
