various. The Tatra revue featured ballet dancers, George Berczeller´s orchestra starting as Combo Tatra revue, Emil Frátrik´s sextet as well as solo singers and entertainers like Marcela Laiferová, Hana Hager, Tomáš Janovic, Zdeněk Sychra, Milan Lasica and Julius Satinský. The glory of the Tatra can not be denied, there are even a couple of books about it  like “Zlaté 60. Roky“, „Smiech a slzy Tatra revue“ or „Bol raz jeden Kabaret“. There was also a documentary movie filmed in 2001 that displays the cabaret as a symbol of an era.

When the Prague Spring ended and the normalization process began the glory of the Tatra revue started to be on the decline and the culture life returned to Tatra with the foundation of the “Štúdio S” lately renamed as “Štúdio L+S” that is still situated in the hotel.
