Building of Manes Gallery was built on the site of the former Šítkovské mills in the years 1928 - 1930 at the request of the Association of Artists by proposal of architect Otakar Novotný. This is a functionalist building complex that serves as an exhibition space and a restaurant. The restaurant is decorated with frescoes ceiling made by Emil Filla and the construction itself was financially supported by the president Tomas Garrigue Masaryk. The idea Manes Gallery is to be meeting point of people with a desire to enjoy the beauty of art conjunction with exceptional gastronomy.
Art Restaurant Mánes offers excellent Czech and French
cuisine with a modern twist under the guidance of chef Jaroslav Zahálka. There
is a permanent exhibition of artworks in our restaurant. The highlight is
definitely the ceiling frescoes from Emil Filla, which are unique and
priceless. You can also enjoy regular live piano performances.
