Prague’s Parlor ice cream bar is playing its part in the revolution of the city’s culinary scene, offering the first ice cream sandwiches in town.

Founder Lukáš Prokop struck upon the idea while traveling across the United States in search of gastronomic inspiration. He found it in San Francisco, where he was fascinated by the ice cream culture. After returning to Prague, he teamed up with his friend and specialist cookie-maker Míša Odstrčilová and together they founded Parlor cafe.

In the heart of the fashionable business district of Karlín, where many new restaurants and cafés have recently opened, their bar brings a fresh foodie experience, further boosting the area’s culinary credentials. ’In our menu we have eight different flavours of cookies, 12 different kinds of ice cream and eight types of toppings. That is more than 6,000 different flavour combinations, so there is always something to discover,’ explain Odstrčilová and Prokop. Daytime indulgences can be accompanied by coffee, hot chocolate or smoothies, while wine and cocktails are the sideshow in the evenings, when Parlor transforms into a bar.

The light, fresh interior is the work of promising young architects Lenka Míková and Markéta Bromová. They envisioned the bar as a friendly space furnished with vintage finds and with greenery interjected throughout. They also commissioned their friend and furniture designer Klára Šumová to create a custom dot mural all over the walls, and unique lamps made of glass and copper.
