2018-07-27. So, as all of us already know, this place is situated in the former tram drivers chill-relax crib. We came around 8 in the evening, friday, was almost empty, thanks to record high temperatues. But regarding the smoke question , laws changed in Czech republic, smokin inside is not permmited anymore, so guess it's not a problem nowdays. But who knows, how it really works. In spite of that, quite a experience. You catch a tram, exit the tram, grab a beer or two, have a quick chat with local geology professor, and jump back to the tram.
The place (and its owner) have a somewhat cult status. Many will love it (partly due to nostalgia and oddity of some local patrons), many other, especially recent newcomers will wonder what is so legendary about this rather rundown place and why to bother. Depending on your expectaions, either give it a try or turn to other, more serious contenders.
Convenient - right at the end of the tramline. Look for the building that looks like it’s the public toilets. Quirky interior, alas we couldn’t get the tram itself, but we did prop ourselves next to it which was one of the least smoky parts of the place. BIker pub vibe. Staff was a little sluggish, barman even smoked, and no English spoken. 8 taps of czech micros, 3 ticks, including a gay beer! Nice to see something so right-on in what on first appearances would be a bit "traditional". Full of noisy locals, but those who spoke English were a friendly bunch, but the environment was oppressively smoky. I’m in two minds about this place, I’m prepared to give it another shot, perhaps earlier in the day?
Since tram 6 run from our hostel it was easy to "find" this place. We arrived quite late in the evening so it was full. Full of people and cigarette smoke. Disgusting. We managed to find couple free seats and few ticks. Interior looks quite interesting. Service sloppy, but couple locals helped us out with language. Selection wasn’t huge, but was worth that tram ride.

Visited - February 2016. The best thing in this place is great, authentic atmosfere. Place is full of locals, and during my visit me and my friends were only tourist here. I didn’t notice non smoking area. At the beginnings in 1997 they have 4 taps, 1 from which are dedicated to micro/small czech brewery. Nowadays they have 8 taps and 5 are for rotation (3 are reserved for Konrad 10°,Pilsner Urquell 11°,Primátor – Weizenbier). No internationals beer on taps (but it is really a drawback at that kind of place? I don’t think so) but they have a nice selection of bottles (including De Molen and USA craft). Prices are very low even for the czech standards. Some funny paintings on walls. Bar is located at the end of tram 6 and 11 (Spořilov). For me it’s absolutely must see in Prague.
