Bit of a shabby place, looks like it has history, in the same way that an ex-con has history. Smokiness was awful. Staff, however, were friendly, and spoke good English. Beer selection seemed impressive, but only 4/25 were ticks, and 2 of those were just plain off. One for popping in, grabbing ticks at risk, and then leaving as soon as possible. Sampler plate was welcome, definitely.

The place is close to the city center and attracts the tourists like myself. Now, this place is overpriced if you look to what Prague has to offer. Still pop in for a thirst quencher. Before you to, please don’t mind that really worn in, old pub smell of cleaning products, piss, foot odor and spilled drinks. The smell reminds me a lot of the late 1990’s British pubs I used to work in and visit, the music playing aswell!! The chairs, tables, menus well pretty much everything in here is greasy and sticky. I would never order food here but that’s just me getting older. Free Wi-Fi though!!
To avoid the cigarette smoke, we went straight to the beer garden at the rear of the pub. Dark wood interior and dark lit inside. The museum part is limited to old photos on the walls. Friendly beer garden vibe on a Friday afternoon. 30 Czechs beers on tap. Ten tasters, each at 150ml, for 320czk, that’s what I call good value. I really appreciated the informative beer menu which made the identification and supplementary work on ratebeer much easier. Music in the direction of Talking Heads. Polite service by the table (Visited with Frau Eva, 01.07.2016).
Lokalizacja 15 minut spacerem z dworca głównego. Można podjechać tramwajem.
Duży pub z dwoma pomieszczeniami i ogródkiem piwnym. Wystrój typowo pubowy.
Można porozumieć się w języku angielskim. Obsługa miła i pomocna.
Na kranach w większości czeskie koncerniaki z paroma wyjątkami (Matuška, Kocour).
Podsumowanie Można wpaść jeśli jest się w okolicy. Nic specjalnego.
Don’t get fooled by the name! He he, this is a pub or bar or beer palace and it serves lots of Czech beers, some of them in the craftbeer/micro style we more north western Europeans have gotten used to. I got lots of different beers here, most of them really pleasant and the girls who worked here were aces, really friendly and they kept letting me taste samples and so on.
But... The bar itself is very dark and having lived without smoking in Norway for the past decade and a half, it is quite a shock to the system meeting a wall of smoke. I sat in the nice little backyard, had my beers and talked to one of the two or three cats who wanted to say hi.
Good selection of 30 taps of mostly quite traditional Czech beers but the tobacco smoke and insanely loud music ruined it for me. Just didn’t make any sense to have night club level of volume in a beer pub. You can’t have any kind of conversation or even hear the staff. I liked the other Prague Beer Museum in Namesti Miru way more.
