Café Montmartre is a genuine reconstruction of the famed original, one of the Prague coffee shops which operated between 1911 and 1937 and was immensely popular with the city’s demi-monde and literati (Jaroslav Hasek was a regular; but then he was a regular in pretty much all of the city’s bars).
rnWith the original immortalised in the city’s literature, this modern version revisits the shabby charm of its predecessor (where Egon Kisch famously danced with Anna Cacka), complete with battered sofas and scarred tables, antique lamps and black-and-white photos of former patrons, all under a barrel-vaulted, painted ceiling.
rnThe scruffiness is part of its appeal, and although the corner piano remains silent these days, Montmartre is popular most evenings, when an eclectic assortment of customers gather to natter over coffee and wine.
