Funny wee boozer at the end of the 11 tram line (Sporilov). You walk off the tram and the dodgy great shitcan in front of you is the pub. The inside is decked out with the converted innards of an old tram. Its brilliant. Part of the Pivni Alliance so they have their beers in good condition and signposted with the familiar black and white printouts above the bar. Good Czech micro brew on tap and more exotic beers in bottles. We had an excellent night here and it left me with a very good impression of the place.

You couldn’t invent this place if you tried. Looks derelict and horrible from the outside, but was bussling inside with a small but interesting draft selection and some interesting bottles in fridges. The smoke was a blast form the past, but oh so much character.

(Visited July 2013) This really is an odd place. A converted waiting hall for the last stop of the tram to the suburb Sporilov. It’s just this building and a turning place for the trams. Take tram 11 to Sporilov and get off at the last stop, the entrance to the bar is 2-3 meters from the tram. The bar is in the centre, with two small rooms to the left and right, the seating in one of the rooms seem to be old tram seats. Friendly and efficient service. 8 taps of Czech beers were available, the selection was quite varied but not really rare. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside it’s quite cosy and with lots of guests (it was a Friday evening). Worth the detour, and you can always get off at Zly Casy on your way back on the tram

Finally put my act together and visited this gem out in the suburbs, easy to find this one, stumble out of the tram, and enter this one. Simple but nice decorated inside, smoking area as well,. Well tapped Primator weizen is never wrong. Some rare stuff from KIocour in the fridge. Service was very good. Only thing irritating a grumpy old twat was the house/techno played at almost 11. :-)

Small and rather idiosyncratic little pub just off the tramlines, very quiet on a Wednesday afternoon. Sat in an old refurbished tramcar (the only non-smoking part of the pub) and watched platform diving on Eurosport. 8 taps at the moment, seems to be increasing. The selection is well-chosen, though nothing I haven’t seen elsewhere, beside the house ale. Fridge is full of Kocour as well. Service doesn’t speak English, but that’s not too big a problem. The tram conveniently stops right next to Zlý Časy on the way back into town. Would like to return on a more lively evening.

One of my favourite bars in Prague, not the biggest beer list (But big doesn’t always mean better) but one of the best thought out and usually includes a craft beer from overseas as well as Czech micros. excellent service and a great atmosphere, usually only locals. Tram 11 to Sporilov (the last stop) and you basically step off the tram and into the bar! Can be smokey.

This place is a member of the P.I.V. Alliance. This gives the consumer some sort of guaranty that beers will be served in top conditions. And it’s true, everything was fresh, Iwas a little bit disappointed of the selection though. Like it was said before, interior is special and unique. I found the music selection excellent too: old rock hits and obscure heavy meta songs. Very cool place. Heck, they even ring a tram bell everytime a customer leaves the place. If this is not ambiance! A place you must visit once in your lifetime.

It is just to stumble out off the tram, and you are literally on the doorstep of Prvni Pivni Tramway! What a place! I felt like entering a remote desert saloon in the USA 130 years ago, with hostile locals staring at the stranger... Just kidding! I found friendly locals watching ski jumping on tv, good beer and great atmosphere (but rather smoky...) Kocour V3 Rauchbier was a suitable beer in this environment. Several others 1 l plastic bottles from Kocour in the fridge. Will return with friends some day. (Visited 24th February 2012)

Visited beginning of June, 2011. Nice small place, though the outside looks horrible. Surroundings are boring, but you have 4 nice rotating pumps and some nice bottles to select from. Also fairly cheap Becherovska, Medovina and some other stuff when you’re done with the beers. Helpful service. Did not eat, not sure you can? I only noticed 4 taps, are there really 7? My fairly high overall rating is for the charm the place have, you should really try and go there.

Great pub in a converted former locker room for the tramway-staff with three constant taps (Pardal, Prazdroj and Primator Weizen) and four constantly rotating brews from small czech producers; a better description than in Evan Rail’s book You will hardly find:" ...inside the pub are old tram seats, tram signs and a narrow, tram-like architecture..." "Smoky, dark and covered with semi-oscene frescoes, Prvni Pivni Tramway has a hard-partying atmosphere that the tourist-friendly pubs in the centre could never even in a thousand years even hope to emulate. It’s really quite lovely." In October 2010 they had great czech hop-bombs on tap: Raptor IPA, Tramway Ale and AM Lager by Kocour. Absolutely worth a detour!!!!!
