Overview

Established in 2008 as the second Bar and Books operation in Prague, Manesova is a comfortable counterpart to the more formal Prague 1 Tynska Bar and Books. This bar is located in Vinohrady which is well known as one of the most desirable and upscale residential neighbourhoods in Prague. The decor is in keeping with the signature Bar and Books style complete with the whimsical monkey lamps and artwork all imported from New York. Manesova Bar and Books offers a private salon, perfect for small bussines meeting, birthday celebration as a nice break from the main bar, it can also host private events, as well as product launches and tasting, for up to 60 guests. The salon is equipped with a large screen. The regular special events of this NYC- style bar are Monday Ladies Cigars (complimentary cigar for ladies), Tuesday Whisky Nights (special prices), Live Music (every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday) or Burlesque Shows (dates in 2017: 25/10, 22/11, 13/12).

This upmarket bar serves excellent cocktails made discretely without fuss. They are inexpensive and great value. There is table service. Not really my kind of place for the following reasons. The "books" in the title are a purely decorative feature, and not a literary theme....More

Thank you for your review. We like to keep our level of service, most people find it attentive. But as you say, it's very subjective.
