Hanging Out At Steampunk Prague

There’s a new place in Prague which is part Club and part Restaurant. In our first photography event we chose this location for its edgy design and industrial urban feel. Marija Neringa and BozhiDara Boyadzhieva showed up for the event and really stole the show.

Located at V Kolkovně 5 they do breakfast, lunch, and dinner upstairs starting at 8am Mon – Fri, and 9am sat – Sun. Then as dusk approaches the underground club in the basement opens up and is there for your drinking and dancing pleasures until 4am. We had the opportunity to try the food there and it was quite nice, clearly made fresh, and was reasonably priced with good value, despite being in the tourist center of Prague.

Just off Kampa Park, between the John Lennon Wall and the John Lennon Pub, on Hroznova 3 lies the Velkopřevorský Mlýn Restaurant. With a birds eye view of the old canal, the old mills water wheel, and the bridge of love locks, this little restaurant has a garden terrace wich seems quite magical.

Flowers adorn a terrace of tables topped with pretzels and chairs layered with soft and fury throw overs to help swallow you like a cloud, and suck you into a world that seems quite removed from the rest of the city.

After looking at the menu I decided to order a boneless pork chop with a green peppercorn sauce, which did not disappoint. Very well done and the cold Staropramen draft was a perfect accompaniment and helped make this early spring day even more enjoyable.

I was impressed by the use of fresh-cut roses used to decorate and accentuate the planted spring flowers as well. The prices are not cheap, but you are not just paying for your order. I am sure the location pays quite high rent, and the atmosphere wich takes you somewhere else with the addition of fresh-cut roses, well….. need I really explain.

If you’re looking for a touch of detail that creates the perfect environment then this is the place. If you’re a bit more price conscience then go to McDonald’s.
