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:


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


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.


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. 


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.


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

Recently I came across an amazing website that I just have to share with you. It's called Blábot (which can be loosely translated into English as babble) and its mission is quite simple - generating a Czech language equivalent of the infamous Lorem ipsum text. Blábot was created keeping Czech designers in mind. If you're designing a website or a print template without specific content, you know how useful it is to have the Lorem ipsum filler text at hand. But as a Czech designer you may actually be missing the diacritical marks of the Czech language, both visually, as well as for practical reasons.

This is where Blábot comes into the picture. The website will generate a random text, which is comprised of Czech words with all their complexities (including diacritical marks). While Lorem ipsum was created from a jumble of words from Cicero's "De finibus bonorum et malorum" (On the Ends of Goods and Evils), Blábot compiled its original text from Karel Čapek's "Povídky z jedné a druhé kapsy" (Tales from Two Pockets). The website lets you copy the text directly but also allows you to generate a personalized text. You can select the form of Czech language to be used (Čapek's Czech, modern Czech or legal Czech), as well as other parameters such as the number of paragraphs and whether to include numbered lists.

I chose to test Čapek's Czech and below is the result:

Túře mstivě zamkl pohnutím pořád přibližně ne kartářka tmě za se ráz muži! Mou nim eh slovům jízdu alev? Náš trpké té čtou a posílil ó padnout. Zub komtesou jenž 11 zkusit 30 vinna východu výklad. Au uf vše čí mrak dostala ponechán. Ó laciným jen ošetřovatelka kroutě 77 bavil ať o ministerstvo povstala jaterní si bok můj řeč kruh šlo čí nač její světlá. 

Oko vy pravým hůrky i klec ba smrtelné. Šéf stole vůči jezdila. Master pozdrav doslova. Spí rád honí po povede obviněný dojat vy svědkyně čtenářů mé rado. Lovu, ní mařkou, jo vzácnou utřela, jest záhy první začnu pekaři ba dvaceti protestoval – močí žitné! Ční au četli jeho mně stopu řičí. Hry prožít ano jaký, v díků těla mě náš nejisté ó jsi zabil zářila.

If you speak Czech, you may actually find the text somewhat poetic. But even if you don't understand a word of Czech, you may find it amusing to use this strange mix of words instead of the traditional Lorem ipsum.
