Whether you’re looking for a famous Czech beer or their popular Kofola drink, there’s a lot of choice for great places to enjoy a drink in Prague. Check out our guide of the top 10 Bars in Prague.
Enjoy a coffee with a view overlooking the River, or a cocktail at a trendy new underground place, or head to a good old fashioned beer cellar! There’s something for ever taste in Prague, from a traditional ‘pivo’ (beer) or the ever popular ‘Kofola’ (cola) drink. If you’d like to sample the best Czech beer (pivo) then head to the Staropramen brewery in the Smíchov district, and the most celebrated beer cellar bars in Prague – the 500 year old U Fleku and Pivovarský dum on the site of the former ‘Research Institute of Brewing and Malting’. After these famous founders – head to our list of top 10 bars in Prague.
Best for Traditional Beer
Starting with the traditional and most famous for Czech beer is the monastery where they have been brewed since the 13th century. The Klasterni Pivovar Strahov is located next to Prague Castle and is a must on a visit to Prague. Renovated recently to host up to 350 people in the brewery, there is a restaurant and charming courtyard too where you can enjoy your beer St. Norbert.
The Monastery Tavern (or Klasterni Senk) is a great place to grab a beer or glass of wine and it’s famous for its traditional Czech food – don’t miss the ham hock and pork scratchings here, they’re delicious!!
Along with the traditional beer places there’s also a newcomer; the microbrewery Novomestský where you can order a 10 litre barrel! They have live music in the evenings and beer tours. They also have Czech and international food served until late.
It’s a bit touristy but Cafe B Braun on Sokolovská Street still attracts locals along with an international crowd – and they have great coffee and cake!! It’s very light and designer but they are happy for you to chill and have a coffee and enjoy the space (or get their lunch deal which is 89 CZK).
For a casual coffee (or enjoying their high class restaurant) try Cafe Lounge. It has a great courtyard where they also serve breakfast – it’s very sophisticated but also has great coffee in the Lesser Quarter.
For a Cocktail
You might need to reserve here and expand your budget but it’s worth dropping by for one cocktail just to see the amazing view of the city. Head to Cloud 9 and get a sunset view. They also have a terrace.
This cocktail bar mixes a mean Gimlet, and they are very proud of their history and long menu of creative and traditional cocktails. The bar started in 1994 but was renovated in 2010 – and since then they’ve claimed to serve the best cocktails.
For Live Music
This is definitely the best place in town to have a few drinks and enjoy some live music on stage. It’s very international (American owned) and they are open until 2am. Cosy yet still Rock ’n’ Roll!
M1 throws some serious parties and is THE place to go and get dressed up for a night out on the town. Expect cocktails, music and lots of dancing.
If live music and dancing is your thing then hit one of the trendiest clubs in Prague with live performances on stage and different rooms with a individual vibe in each. They have everything from punk to dance, dubstep, drum’n’bass or techno. They even have table football! Free entrance on some nights – check the website for who’s playing.
