A couple from the UK with a passion for exploring the world, and enjoying a drink or two while we’re at it!
We want to share our travel experiences to help you plan your next trip, and let you know the best places to enjoy a cold one when you get there!
Prague quickly became one of our favourite European cities and for good reason, Prague is definitely one for drink lovers like us!
What's not to like, with world famous beer, delicious cocktails, rustic bars, along with some of the cheapest prices in Europe, it's no surprise that Prague is renowned for being a Mecca to drink enthusiasts.
We've selected our top picks of must visit bars and pubs that Prague has to offer and come up with an easy to follow walking bar tour that takes you around all of them. This route has everything from traditional beer halls to rooftop terraces with stunning views, it's the perfect way to see Prague's historic Old Town, in our opinion anyway.
The furthest distance from one bar to the next is a 10-minute walk, so you'll still be able to stagger your way there, even when you've had one too many. But be careful, the Czechs like their beer strong, and they like to have lots of it! So make sure you don't over do it, too much...
Let the Bar Crawl commence...
The first stop on our tour of must visit bars in Prague is T-Anker. Located just outside the Old Town, T-Anker is a beer bar/restaurant which has a large outdoor seating area that boasts stunning views over the Old Town.
They have 9 beers on tap, with 3 fixed favourites; their T-Anker light lager, another light lager by Cvikov brewery, and a wheat beer from Maisels Weisse. The other beer taps are rotated weekly with the aim to support local micro-breweries.
Geared more towards craft beer lovers than traditionalists, this is one of Prague's more modern spots to enjoy a cold one, but don't let that put you off, an ice cold Pilsner with that view is a must!
The perfect brew with a view to start the tour!
WALK 8 MINUTES TOWARDS THE OLD TOWN SQUARE
BAR 2: BLACK ANGELS BAR
Black Angels Bar is situated right in the centre of the Old Town Square, and because of it's touristy location it can get very busy, but do not let this put you off though, this one is a must visit!
Regularly ranked amongst 'The Worlds 10 Best Bars' Black Angels is located underground in the "Gothic cellar" of Hotel U Prince. The 1930's prohibition style bar is complete with red leather sofas, low-hanging chandeliers, and some of the best hand crafted cocktails you will ever try.
The seating area is very spacious so you can happily sit back and enjoy your cocktail of choice, and if live music is your thing, they have a pianist performing on the weekends.
Just be aware, as the bar has a speakeasy theme, you are not allowed to take photos. Joe was ever so slightly shouted at for trying to grab a quick shot of the bar...
WALK 5 MINUTES
BAR 3: THE PUB
If you're the kind of person that hates waiting for their beer to be delivered to the table, then The Pub is the place for you!
The Pub is one of the few bars we've been to that has easy to use self-serving beer tap on each table. If someone in your party doesn't like beer, there is a tablet on top of the pump so you can order other drinks and food directly to the table. We would highly recommend the food, especially the burgers!
They also have a "leaderboard" shown on a large screen listing the tables that have drunk the most beer in the bar you are in, in their bars in Prague, and in their bars in Europe! This is the perfect spot to visit if you are in a group or if you're a two (like us) that love to drink a lot of beer!
The Pub can be found in multiple locations around Prague, including Praha 2 and Praha 6.
WALK 4 MINUTES TOWARDS CHARLES BRIDGE
WARNING : The next two bars only accept CASH There is a Travelex ATM located near the Bridge if you need to make a withdrawal.
BAR 4: PRAGUE BEER MUSEUM
Now that you're in a beer drinking mood, it's definitely time for the Prague Beer Museum
Boasting 30 beers on tap (all from Czech micro breweries), they offer the largest draught beer choice in the whole of Prague, and you can sample all of these on beer tasting paddles.
The Prague Beer Museum isn't the place if you're just looking for a cheap pint, edging on the pricer side, this is one for the beer connoisseurs!
WALK 4 MINUTES
BAR 4: CASH ONLY BAR
Cash Only Bar is a hidden gem of a cocktail bar found in an otherwise very touristy part of Prague. They offer the concept of cocktails and hot dogs - unusual we know! But trust us just go with it!
During the week, there is a very relaxed vibe, with the bar getting much busier on the weekends when the downstairs bar opens up. They offer exceptional service and excellent cocktails, if you're a gin lover make sure you try The Bramble
Cash Only Bar is the sister bar to the more popular "Hemingway Bar". They both offer a similar vibe but Cash Only Bar tends to be quieter so it's easier to grab a table!
WALK 10 MINUTES
BAR 5: THE ANONYMOUS SHRINK'S OFFICE
The Anonymous Shrink's Office is much more than just a bar, it's more like a drinks experience. We honestly had one of the best cocktails we have ever tasted.
The experience starts when you are lead through a secret doorway that takes you down to the underground bar. Your waiter will then explain that the cocktail you receive will be decided through a physiological test.
We don't want to give anything else away, but we would recommend the Anonymous Shrink's Office to anyone looking for a unique and fun drinking experience.
WALK 8 MINUTES
BAR 6: U FLEKÜ
We've saved our favourite till last! Although U Fleků is very much a touristy restaurant, the beer and traditional Czech food are 100% worth a visit and is our number one recommendation for a bar to visit in Prague.
U Fleků only serve one beer! The dark beer of the house. U Fleků’s dark lager is unpasteurised and unfiltered - their beer only lasts about 4 weeks before it goes off, because it still contains active yeast. If you like darker beers you need to try this. Even if you don't, you still need to try it! It's unlike any other beer we have tried, and it's seriously tasty!
Before you even have chance to put your bum on a seat you will be handed a beer by one of the waiters circling the room with trays loaded with glasses. They also have strong aperitifs but we got advised to avoid these so maybe suggest you do the same! Or if you're feeling courageous, go for it and let us know what it's like.
As soon as your glass is empty they will pick it up straight away and swap it with a full one. The waiters mark up your orders on a piece of paper that stays on your table and at the end of the meal, you give that to the cashier to ring up and pay.
The food was a big highlight for us, we didn't actually plan on eating here but after seeing the traditional Czech cuisine being served we had to try it for ourselves. We definitely didn't regret our decision!
We hope you've made it safely to the end! and you've enjoyed our walking tour guide of our favourite bars that Prague has to offer! Is our Bar Walking Tour missing something? Please share your favourite bars in Prague below!
