Mad men do Prague

We thought we would do something a little more 'fun' this time and decided to group a few designer objects and places we love around a single theme. And since everyone seems to be obsessed with Mad Men...


The top 5 Mad Men inspired things to do when in Prague:

1/  GET A HAT

You can't be Don Draper without a good hat and there isn't a better company in the Czech Republic that knows how to cover your head in style than Tonak



 2/ SUIT UP

A slim-fit suit is a must and for a true gentleman a custom suit is the only option. Made to measure suits are now available with Blažek or Le Premier.



3/ WALK IN STYLE

Let's kick it up a notch with some tailor-made shoes. You heard me. Salon Lawart has been making them for the Czech elite since 1995. 




4/ CHECK THE TIME

There is nothing classier a man can wear than a stylish watch. Prim is a brand with tradition, the sort of company that was around when your grandfather got his first watch.




5/ PERHAPS A DRINK AND A CIGAR / ETTE ?

The perfect place to do it is at Bar and Books in Prague.

Apartment restaurants, Prague & Hospozín

We like to keep you updated on the latest trends in dining, so that you're always in the know when it comes to good food. Let's just say we like you to be the cool kid on the block. This time we have discovered a trend that will not only please your palate but will also take care of your social life. We're talking about apartment dining.

Some of you may have come across this trend in other countries, others may be hearing about this for the first time. The principle is quite simple. Food enthusiasts organize dinners in their own homes and offer a seat at the table to anyone interested to join. Hence, the name apartment restaurant. We already found two in the Czech Republic that are active and becoming increasingly popular.

This form of dining is not only the perfect way to enjoy some great food but also a great opportunity to meet new people. So how can you attend a house dinner and how much will it cost? Follow the Facebook page of any of the two below mentioned restaurants and look out for the dates and menu of their upcoming dinners. The price for the dinner will be mentioned on the menu. If you find something you like, sign up fast because there are limited seats available and they do get booked quickly! Happy dining! Oh and do drop us a note if you attend, we would love to hear how the food was and
