In its day, Holešovice had its share of untraditional cult places. One of them was Cobra – a non-stop bar with flashing slot machines, carpets, which discretely concealed anything unflattering, and long opening hours. When the bar closed down, a number of locals decided to repair the Cobra’s reputation by reopening it in quite a different guise. It still has long opening hours, but it’s become quite a fashionable establishment without the one-armed bandits. Moreover, it has a menu.
Food is served from lunchtime till ten in the evening, with the menu changing, depending on who is cooking and what mood he or she is in. One time you can pick from a purely Asian menu, and another time, the menu will have schnitzel with potato salad and breaded cauliflower.
On the weekend, you can count on the place to serve a mean “hangover killer” breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, and champignons; they will revive even the last guy to leave the bar. Breakfast is also served on week days, since Cobra opens at eight in the morning.
It is a meeting point for moustachioed representatives of different creative professions, gorgeous female students from the nearby Academy of Fine Arts, and ultimately, all those in Letná for whom style matters.
Apart from cocktails, coffee and a concise offer of food, Cobra also has a DJ. Sometimes twice a week, at times thrice, but Friday is certain.Maéva, Avantgarde Prague
