The body language of the two towers nicknamed it “dancing building” and "Fred and Ginger”. Prominently located along the River Vltava in a historic district, it is one of Pragues most controversial buildings. The site was originally occupied by a Neo-renaissance house from the end of the 19th century, destroyed during bombing in 1945, its remains finally removed in 1960. The neighboring house (with a small globe on the roof) was co-owned by Czech ex-president Vaclav Havel, who lived there from his childhood until the mid-1990s. He ordered Vlado Milunic to make the first architectural study. Afterwards the Dutch bank ING agreed to build a house there, and asked Milunic to invite a world-renowned architect. Milunic first asked Jean Nouvel, he rejected the invitation because of the small size of the site (491 square meters); he then asked Frank Gehry, and he accepted the challenge. Gehry had an almost unlimited budget, because ING wanted to create an icon in Prague.

The restaurant opens from 4pm to 6 pm for cafe time. You could have a drink and enjoy the view at the terrace. At other times, you need to pay for a decent dinner to stay in the restaurant. Remember the restaurant is closed on Sunday.
