The idea behind The Spot isn’t radical, but it is unique. Nestled in the neighborhood of Vinohrady, The Spot aims to provide a comfortable and relaxed place for friends to meet up and enjoy some coffee or even a bite to eat. But what sets us apart is that we aren’t here just to serve you delicious food and drinks. We are also a community center geared towards providing expats with the resources they need to adjust to life in their new home.
Our mission is to do everything we can to make expats feel comfortable while living abroad. We brought together Coffeemakers.cz and PraguExpats to do exactly that. Our café, run by Coffeemakers.cz, provides our visitors with a cozy atmosphere to do work or catch up with friends. Our menu offers more than just coffee. We also serve breakfast and lunch all day long. There are even vegetarian options, something of a rarity it seems around Prague.
Being an expat in Prague is an exciting and rewarding experience. The more you explore the city, the more beauty you will find. It may seem like one big holiday at first, but eventually the immigration process has to be taken care of. This is the tedious part of being an expat that includes lots of visas, permits, other confusing paperwork. Luckily, PraguExpats is located in The Spot, and they help expats navigate through this difficult process. The friendly staff provides visa services in a personal and detail orientated manner. Their goal is to make your life easier so you can continue to enjoy your new home.
Bringing people together is an important aspect of what we do here at The Spot. Not only do we want to bring expats together, but we also want to help integrate the expats with the local community of Prague. This can be intimidating for expats when they don’t know how to speak Czech. To help them overcome this obstacle, we offer free Czech lessons twice a week for beginners. Though it may be difficult at first, learning Czech is the best way for expats to feel more comfortable in Prague, and this is a great way to start learning the language.
Our services for expats don’t stop with our language lessons. Free workshops for expats and locals alike often take place at The Spot. On June 25th, there will be a workshop discussing how to find a job in Prague. Breaking into a new job market can be difficult, and this workshop will clear up any questions that expats may have about the job search, taxes, contracts, and other work related topics.
Sometimes, you need to just relax and watch a movie or read a book. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered here at The Spot. Czech movie nights will return soon to provide expats with the chance to learn a bit about Czech culture and cinema. We also have a small library of books where customers are encouraged to take books and leave books as they please. For those who are really feeling stressed out, perhaps it’s time to escape the city for a weekend. The Czech Republic is full of spa towns and beautiful hiking trails. We have a collection of brochures and tourist information to help you plan your weekend getaway.
During the 1920’s, Prague had a thriving café culture. People would gather at cafes to discuss art, music, writing, and more. Inspired by this, we would like to create a similar setting where art, music, and culture are commonplace. Coming up in the months of June and July, we will feature artists and musicians at the café. The Spot will host art exhibitions for local artists to display their work. Live music will also be coming to the café in the next month. An open piano will also be added to The Spot. Anyone who would like to play and share their music will be able to. Through art and music, The Spot looks to become a place that brings people, expats and locals alike, together to enjoy an evening of culture.
Nowhere else in Prague will you find a place like The Spot. It’s a community center where expats can get the resources needed to feel at home in Prague, but it is also a cozy café where anyone can hang out with friends and enjoy themselves. We are always looking for ways to make expats’ lives easier as they enjoy their new lives in Prague. We are confident that you will find that The Spot is the right one for you.
