Modernist Cafe Culture in Prague

Prague’s Grand Café Orient is the only cubist-designed space of its kind in the world. It occupies the first floor of the House of the Black Madonna, designed in 1911 by modernist architect Josef Gočár. Renovated in 2005, the spacious café retains the original silk-shaded hanging brass lanterns and marble-topped buffet-bar. Diners can enjoy such menu highlights as Prague ham and apple strudel, and then visit the Museum of Czech Cubism upstairs. Ovocný Trh 19, 420/2-24-224-240. This appeared in the October 2012 issue.
