Prague-based Slovak entrepreneur Tino Hrnciar, his wife Ivon, and their partner chef Petr Henes, launched Forbidden Taste, the city’s first pop-up restaurant, in 2013.

Following the success of that venture, the group has now opened the Forbidden Spot, an unusual concept dining spot at in Letná.

A joint venture with Hrnciar’s streetwear brand Life Is Porno, the 1,400 square meter space is equal parts grafitti-splashed gallery and “tasting atelier” where local gourmets can strut their stuff and future Forbidden Taste events will be held.

“Our own venue gives us much more freedom. And it’s huge, so basically a never-ending playground for us,” says Hrnciar.

While the previous Forbidden Taste events involved secret text messages and hidden locations, the buzzword for the new project is accesibility, Hrnciar says.

The Spot also houses a Life Is Porno streetwear store, Forbidden Gallery, and White Room which can be rented for workshops and conferences.

How is this venue any different from the clutch of concept dining and upmarket cafes that define the area?

“It’s not a bar, it’s not a café nor a bistro. It’s none of them but somehow all of them. A place to enjoy good food, coffee, and drink. We’ve got many installations and [you can] skateboard inside,” says Hrnciar.
