Black Angel’s Bar

Black Angel’s Bar is designed in the style of 1930s restaurants, the so-called ‘public houses’, where people of all social strata met their friends after a hard day’s work to cheer the spirit with a good drink, which was then quite unaccountably banned. Located on the second lower level of the hotel U Prince in Old Town Square, it was previously called the Black Angel. The premises with the original Gothic and Romanesque masonry, which creates an atmosphere of secretly ‘getting together’, immerse you in the mood of black and white films, where the names of cocktails are not just void of meaning.

The performance is scheduled in the program for season 2014-2015.

Czech Collegium 1704 J.S. Bach – Mass in B minor

The work was one of Bach’s last compositions, not completed until 1749, the year before his death. The Mass was never performed in its entirety during Bach’s lifetime; the first documented complete performance took place in 1859. Since the nineteenth century it has been widely hailed as one of the greatest compositions in musical history, and today it is frequently performed and recorded.

Moser Glass

From the very beginning the fame of Moser Glassworks has been based on the handmade art of master glassmakers, cutters, painters and engravers. Each piece created is unique and requires precise, step by step mastery of the entire hand production process. The secrets of their artistic and craftsmanship skills have been traditionally handed down from generation to generation.
