On July 19th, Manifesto Market Prague Smichov will open its doors to the first visitors and make the unique experience of pairing elegant design, local and international food and cultural performances more accessible to the residents of Vltava’s left bank.
Manifesto seeks to revive Smichov’s unused yard of the historical Narodni dum communal building. This pop-up concept will have a shorter existence than its Florenc sibling and should move after this winter to another site in the same district.
“We are creating a new, exciting community hub near Andel, that seeks to reconnect Narodni dum building and local residents to the bounty of beautiful gardens, parks and Vltava riverfront nearby,” said Manifesto’s founder Martin Barry.
A new culinary garden
At Manifesto Smíchov, organizers will collaborate with fine-dining experts Zatisi Group and Sasazu and bring along a couple of Manifesto’s favorites – PokeHaus and Faency Fries, The Craft will test a new concept. There will be a new pop-up kitchen by the pan-Asian restaurant and Prague’s hidden secret Nebu. Pilsner Urquell will install four brand new copper tanks at the main bar for tank beer and Manifesto will continue to offer microbrews from Vinohradsky pivovar. Other local microbreweries will be invited on a regular basis.
The location on namesti 14. rijna is a few steps from Anděl transit and business hub, Nový Smíchov shopping mall, a 3-minute tram ride from Mala Strana’s Ujezd. Manifesto will continue to be a completely cashless place, in collaboration with Mastercard. The group will also launch new features such as a Manifesto prepaid card, and food delivery from all vendors in a single order in the coming months.
Design, Music, Culture
Manifesto Smichov will collaborate with Red Bull to present DJs, live musicians and free concerts and present music nights curated by the team of Ameba Production – the producers of the legendary Rock for People festival. The collaboration with Red Bull will also include film screenings, free to the public. Occasional dance and talk shows will be organized under the open sky, in the shade of the art-nouveau 111-years-old façade.
