On the site of today’s modern buildings originally stood a small house, which housed a butcher shop and restaurant on the first floor. In the 30s of the 20th century, it leased the Jewish community and established a kosher dining hall and a theater, where the Jewish cabaret was performed. After the coup in 1948, on the 1st floor briefly operated a restaurant, but then it was nationalized and the building owner Karel Jerabek was arrested and for eighteen months sent to a forced labor camp. The house has since dilapidated. Because the restaurant was not profitable it was closed. The rooms on the ground floor and first floor later gained by Theatre EF Burian for his office and production workshop.
