This is a huge beer hall with a very smokey smoking section and a very quiet and sparsely populate non-smoking section. Beer is brought to you before you really need it, but that is a-ok by me. The food was pretty solid and went really well with the beer. Don’t try the Becherovka though. They try and force these shots on you. Just polity decline and have another beer.
went here for the experience...saw it on 3 Sheets...can’t say i’d go back, but it had a great ambiance (but a little smoky)...lots of tourists. nice refreshing Czech beer, no variety, and hearty Czech food.
What an amazing place this is! You really have to find the time to come here. It’s a "really" old style Czech beer bar. They have just the one dark beer here, which they bring around on trays and drop it off as they walk around. They do the same with the shots too. Great food, good service and centrally located. They have an old bloke playing the accordion too! Not for tickers but there is more to life than ticking... isn’t there?
Came here on 18.10.2016. This is definitely an institution, the history is impressing, 500 years continuously operating a brewery through many turbulent years is absolutely unique. You feel the history everywhere. Outside, the facade is plain but clear, inside very traditionally decorated. You are inhaling beer culture every single moment of your stay. They serve only the one famous delicious dark lager, but that’s how it should be. Service was very friendly and food was ok. An absolute MUST visit for all visitors who come to Prague for beer.
This is more about the feel than the beer. The beer’s great, but the place is greater, a little piece of history preserved for us to experience. Staff were efficient, prices were high, but it was worth it.
