    Radek Zachariáš: Život ševce

    Radek Zachariáš je jedním z předních českých ševců, vyznavač tradičního řemesla, ale také fanoušek moderních technologií, nonkonformista a ctitel krásných žen. Obuvnickému řemeslu se věnuje už více než 25 let. Začínal jako samouk a dopracoval se ke špičkové ruční výrobě obuvi na míru. Mezi jeho zákazníky patří známé osobnosti, ale i širší veřejnosti neznámí milovníci kvalitní ruční práce. V současné době tvoří v pražské dílně společně se svými spolupracovníky a zákazníci na své první nové boty čekají i více než šest měsíců. V unikátním prostoru galerie SmetanaQ budete mít jedinečnou příležitost k neformálnímu setkání s touto nevšední osobností.

Located on the second floor

The name BOTTEGA comes from the Italian word "la bottega", which refers to handicraft workshops that open onto the street: skilled designers offered their products to passers-by, who had the unique opportunity to observe them at their work. This is exactly the kind of space we have made available in our house for young and experienced artists to work alongside one another in shared studios, The generous, minimalistic lounge allows people interested in craftsmanship to meet artists and see how their works are created. Designers can meet both clients and other studio tenants to interact, inspire, and create. Our lounge is also a place for exhibiting the best works from a given studio. When selecting the designers to occupy our studios, we focused on fashion and fashion accessories, jewelry and footwear. BOTTEGA provides the environment for creating and exhibiting products in peace and comfort. Separate studios spread across the city are without doubt poetic, but we enjoy sharing, communicating and forming communities of highly individual creators.

Located on the first floor

Our SmetanaQ Café & Bistro is the heart of the house at No. 4 Smetanovo nábřeží. It´s a meeting point for students, artists and people from all walks of life who enjoy a cup of excellent coffee or tea.

Every morning our pastry cook comes to the kitchen to bake for you a wide variety of cakes, tarts, tartlets and fruit pies. Our kitchen also makes its own savoury desserts, quiches and sourdough bread as well as hot and cold breakfasts and substantial soups prepared from fresh vegetables and home-made bouillons. In the evening, you can sit with friends over a glass of wine not only inside the café but also on our newly opened terrace, which remains cool and shady on hot days. 

We are proud to offer quality food by Czech producers from Bohemia and Moravia. We strive to make our guests feel good so that they will come back again not only to enjoy our food but – far more important – to gain new energy from this special place on the Vltava River bank, in a house that we wanted to restore to a new life.

  • Menu

  • Our Coffee and Tea

    We obtain our coffee from the Czech roaster DoubleShot, enthusiastic coffee experts who not only thoroughly understand coffee but also visit farms in many countries of Africa and South America. We regularly change our selection on offer; this year it has been possible to enjoy Guatemalan grain espresso or filtered coffee from Rwanda. We also offer tea imported by the TeaMountain in Prague-Karlín, which directly buys fragrant leaves from farms in Japan, Nepal, and India, among other countries.

  • The Interior

    Our café is an ideal location for your meetings, with its distinctive interior featuring Czech design. The tastefully refurbished interior is complemented by modern Bomma lamps, Ton chairs and a solid oak furniture. The rooms are full of the afternoon sun with the rippling reflections of the Vltava River. The large windows offer a beautiful view of the Petřín Hill and the Střelecký Island. In the winter, you can see the entire panorama of the Prague castle; in the summer, the view is partly obscured by the rich green foliage of the trees on the opposite side of the street. The atmosphere of the evening waterfront is enhanced by the illuminated trams that come to a halt across from the house and then continue on their journey.

  • Capacity

    Our indoor café area has eighty seats and our terrace another twenty. The café has a separate lounge with library, a popular venue for family celebrations, corporate events, interviews with journalists and book-signing sessions. A book club regularly meets here. The lounge can be rented along with the adjoining terrace.
