If you haven’t the the chance to visit Prague’s new Manifesto Market, the shipping container-based summer hotspot located in-between the Florenc bus station and the Masarykovo nádraží train station in central Prague, make it a top priority.
The cashless (credit card only) market has a range of excellent food & drink booths that represent some of the very best that Prague has to offer, including craft beer and summer cocktails, stalls from top Prague restaurants like Bistro 8 and veggie paradise Etnosvět (among many others), and Angelato ice cream.
From personal experience, the build-you-own bowl poke courtesy of Poke Haus is out-of-this-world and a Manifesto must-try. Around the corner, Fancy Fries with a variety of dipping sauces are a great guilty pleasure.
But the Manifesto Market offers a lot more than just food & drink. The venue also hosts cultural events including World Cup screenings and evening concerts (usually from 19:00) that have helped turn it into one of summer 2018’s hottest places to be in Prague.
The events also include special summer cinema screenings every Monday night, which began earlier this month and have included films like The Big Sick and The Florida Project.
Up next, tonight June 16 (if the rain holds off), is a screening of the wonderful Jim Jarmusch comedy-drama Paterson, starring Adam Driver. Jarmusch and Driver, by the way, are currently filming a new zombie movie titled The Dead Don’t Die which also stars Bill Murray and Selena Gomez.
The summer cinema screenings at Manifesto Market are held in cooperation with reSITE and local distributor Aerofilms, so expect more films from their collection in the future.
Later in July, Manifesto Market will screen the appropriate Singaporean-Japanese foodie film Ramen Shop (July 23) and the excellent 2016 comedy-drama Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen in an Oscar-nominated performance (June 30).
Best of all: all movies are presented free of charge. Keep an eye out for future screenings in August.

To get to Manifesto Market in Prague, just head down Na Florenci street from the Masarykovo nádraží train station (or up the street from the McDonald’s at Florenc) and look out for the shipping containers.
