An impressive selection of bottles! A decent tap selection of 6 taps. Quite reasonably priced and a very good selection of Czech beers

Was my local when I lived in Prague, the place I met my wife, had my reception and many a great night on the beer. Much missed now that I live in the States, much anticipated when we next go to Prague.
Went twice already. Great attitude and service at the bar. Draught choice is good, though not amazing. Bottle choice in Cz beers is wonderful. A little pricy, but not bad. Great eisbein as well. I really enjjoyed this place.
Nice but maybe a bit overrated. Six beers on tap, but nothing extraordinary. Very nice bottle selection, and with the bottles on display in the pub. Unfortunately, quite a few of the bottles in the beerlist were not available. Still, anice place to have good czech beers.
A bit outside the city center, but worth the walk over. Clean and comfortable atmosphere, with 2 levels. We went for lunch and it was a good idea because I could see it getting very crowded. 6 Taps, some local, some not. The local taps were excellent, particularly the Dum Stepan and the Harrach Nakouřené. Pretty extensive bottle list with Eastern Europe and Belgium pretty well represented. The food was pretty good, with fairly generous portions. Lunch specials were rather inexpensive, too. We stayed for about 3 hours, drank quite a bit, had lunch, and only spent the equivalent of 20 euro. Great place
One of the best bars in Prague. Inside, it feels pretty modern and very clean, quite different from your average a little bit of this, a little bit of that uncaring pub. The crowd consisted mostly of young locals, but we heard other languages than Czech at two other tables. Service was excellent, far above Prague’s average. While 6 taps can be quite a big deal in Czech Republic, I supposed I have been a bit unlucky with the ones they had when I visited as there was only one beer I’d never had before. They had one from their sister pub DUM, two from Cerna Hora that can be found in quite a few places in town, another from a macro, Kozel if I recall correctly. It was not quite the rare offerings from the far country side that I was expecting. As far as the bottles go, there was of course plenty of stuff I’d never had before, but I don’t think they even had a bottle from a brewery I’d never heard of (which should not be that hard to do in Czech Republic). I don’t know that they have 200 bottles, perhaps, but with less than half being Czech, you have about the 100 most common brands. Unfortunately, they apparently no longer serve their own beer. Still, I’d gladly come back next time I’m in Prague and the place felt very comfortable if not quite cozy.
Most overrated bar in Prague but probably a must visit just. Visited twice. Insanely small and insanely packed. My take is Tony Bourdain shows has made this place a tourist destination. 6 beers on tap might have been a big deal in prague 3-5 years ago but not today. You can find most any of these beers in the bars in zizkov, pay less, and not deal with the crowd.
A bit out of the old centre, but worth the trip. Everything breathes beer, from the hop above the doors, the beer making stuff in the windows and thousands of bottles on the shelves. Very quiet atmosphere, no music, just talk, drink and eat something. We only ate some garlic bread, I had the Stepan and a General 14 from tap.

very good pub with tousents bottles from all world. And 6 tap, one is always for Weizen and one for Stepan beer from pivodům in Ječna steet. On 4 taps rotate czech and forgein beers. All czech beer(tap and bottle) cost 35Kč and forgein bottles is overstated. Pub have 2 flors one smoking second nonsmoking area. Foot is well but expensive.

One of THE places to visit in Prague. Both a pub and a beer store (and from time a time a microbrewery heh). Really rare stuff on tap (6 beers), had to add most of them and even the brewery for one. The Harrach Nakouřené was a huge highlight and the others were the Opat Merunka, the pale Štepan, Chotěboř Tmavy Ležak, Dožínkové Pšeničné and Lobkowicz Premium. Great selection of Czech and foreign bottled beers at OK prices. Ok service.
Went there two times for lunch, had the "zvěřinový guláš podle pana nadlesního" with potato croquettes the first day and the svíčková with dumplings the other, both quite tasty. All in all, a must visit.
