Well it is there. Upstairs is nice some good Czech beers and many others. Only the gods know what is going on down stairs. Could not tell if it was a strip club or a Whorehouse in any event it was not for me.

Czech themed bar - as the name suggests.
Plenty of mainstream Czech lagers on tap (many of which aren’t available anywhere else in the city) and a couple of more obscure Czech dark lagers. Decent prices - you can get everything in 3 pint pitchers too. A couple of O’Hara’s products on tap too if you fancy an ale instead.
The redecoration that they did last year is absolutely ghastly; downstairs brings two words to mind: "porn dungeon" (not even the good kind). Faux white leather and flashing lights. Jesus, it’s nasty. Upstairs has retained some basic homely charm, so head up there straight away.
Food is hearty traditional Czech and Slovak fare at fairly reasonable prices (although twice/thrice the price of Prague!).
After 11pm, downstairs turns into a crazy free-for-all Euro-disco...so I’d recommend having at least three pitchers of Pivovar Herold dark and hitting the dancefloor with Dublin’s Eastern European crowd. It’s one hell of an experience.
