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.
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.
The icone among Czech pubs. The only brewpub that survived communism era. The same beer is brewed for decades, it isn’t the best one in Prague, but it has tradition, great reputation... Yeah, this pub and this one beer are Czech cultural heritage.
The atmosphere is a bit spurious now, for tourist. But never mind, it recall beginning of 20th century, as we envision: cabaret, harmonica and dark beer. One of must see, if you are in Prague.
Lokalizacja 10 minut spacerem z dworca głównego.
Ogromny pub z kilkoma salami, długie, masywne stoły i ławy, między salami chodzi 2/3 muzyków grających na akordeonach. Wystrój przypominający styl bawarski.
Można porozumieć się w języku angielskim. Obsługa miła, pomocna i wesoła.
Do wyboru tylko 1 piwo - Flekovský Tmavý Ležák 13°.
Możliwość zakupienia pamiątek związanych z pubem.
Podsumowanie Warto przyjść ze względu na atmosferę. Będąc w Pradze pozycja obowiązkowa.
This is not a pub, it’s an homage to the spirit of survival. It is over-touristed, 59 Kcs for 0.4 litres of beer is quite expensive even for a small icon and the blunt efforts of the waiters to sell food, sweet liqueurs and merchandise are gnawing. But all of that misses the point. This place is a global treasure and should have a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation slapped on it asap. It has survived in one way shape of form for 500 years and none of us or the institutions and beliefs we cherish are going to come anywhere close to that. It a hero dressed in black. The beer had remained constant for 40 years until the old brewer retired and the new guy has kept it as ever was - at risk of having the old guy knife him in his sleep. It is all the beers around that have changed. This is also one of the great bierkellers of Central Europe, a must on every world beer traveller’s list. It epitomises the Czechs expression from before the Velvet Revolution, "First survive. Everything else is luxury."
Very nice ambiance. The whole stay I was waiting musketeers to jump out from somewhere. Or crawl out from somewhere. They serve only 1 beer here so that’s a bummer. But beer what they serve is brilliant!
