Bars & Cafes / 5 Minutes Walk / Central Prague

Grand Cafe Orient

On the first floor of the House at the Black Madonna, a building that symbolizes the unique Czech contribution to the cubist movement not only in architecture but in furniture, pottery and glass. It was created by the renowned architect Josef Gočár when he was only 31 years old. The café within the house remained open for a mere ten years or so but closed in the 1920s when cubism fell out of fashion. After a break of about 80 years the Grand Café Orient re-opened in 2005 after an extensive renovation based on black and white photographs, trying to reclaim the vibe and atmosphere of the cafe in 1912.
