Prague’s first outdoor food hall, Manifesto Florenc — 27 movable shipping containers occupied by a mix of first-time restaurateurs and industry vets — launched during the summer of 2018 in Prague’s Florenc neighborhood. Designed by American landscape architect and entrepreneur Martin Barry, the food hall transformed a derelict corner of the city into a hip dining hub. The concept proved so successful that Barry introduced little sister Manifesto Smíchov one year later in Prague’s gentrifying Smíchov district. The micro market consists of six restaurants and two bars, but the entire operation embraces the Czech Republic’s beer culture. A central bar dispenses the country’s most famous brew, Pilsner Urquell, alongside local microbrews like Vinohradský Pivovar’s Vinohradská 11 pilsner. The Manifesto team curated food vendors that serve international cuisines that pair with beer. Repeat sellers from Florenc, like Faency Fries, mix with new vendors, such as cheesesteak specialist the Craft.
