A still-prominent location in the café history of Brno

The rapid development of Brno in the 1920s was reflected in a boom in the local social life which, as in other cities, was concentrated in cafés.

One of the places comparable to other exclusive European cafés in terms of its architecture, comfortable furnishing, and refined service was the Savoy Café, located on the corner of Jakubské náměstí (St James Square) and Běhounská Street. The Savoy Café is one of the crucial works by architect Jindřich Kumpošt, and it stands out significantly among his previous designs as well as among most of the buildings of this type from Brno’s interwar period.

Today, you find in the Savoy Café the bistro Forky’s.
