After hundred-year flooding, a bistro brings new life to Karlín.

Details: Nearly destroyed by hundred-year flooding in 2002, the once unsavory Karlin district in Prague has since been rebuilt and renewed with small local businesses like Nejen Bistro, a restaurant that offers homemade meals using fresh seasonal ingredients, craft wines and beers. At its heart, the unique Josper Grill which represents the heart of the bistro.

Say the architects, mar.s architects, “This event [the flood] is reflected in the interior of the bistro, and thus the walls struck by the water were cleaned down to the bricks and kept that way, while the remaining parts of the bistro are plastered.”

“However, the main motive of the bistro is the interconnection of the restaurant and the kitchen. They form a unified area where everyone sees everything and nothing is hidden. Just like the meals, the interior is also clean without unnecessary additives, and it doesn’t hide anything, maybe just the passing through the library.”

“With nightfall, the bistro brightened through the day changes into an intimate place perfect for tasting great wines thanks to clumps of slightly glowing ‘Edison light bulbs’.”
