Where to go for beer in Prague
Situated on Old Town Square, Brasserie Mincovna offers traditional Czech cuisine with a modern twist, with an emphasis on elegant presentation. The restaurant’s atmosphere is both modern and welcoming, with wooden tables and chairs in a high-ceilinged room typical of Prague’s old houses.
Close to Charles Bridge, Lokál U Bílé kuželky (At the White Skittle) restaurant is an excellent mix of good food and reasonable prices, in a traditional Czech setting. All Lokál restaurants are the work of Václav Červenka, in-house architect at the Ambiente group, which owns them.
The entire menu at the Strahov restaurant is based on the local beer, Saint-Norbert. The dishes are based on beer, or at least designed to go perfectly with the different types: light amber, brown or India Pale Ale.
A modern approach to a traditional beverage is the secret of the success of Vinohradský pivovar. Although the brewery was founded in 1893, production was disrupted for a long time by the Second World War. Beer is no longer produced at Vinohradský pivovar, but parts of the brewing process continue here.
With its eight dining rooms and terrace, this brasserie near the New Town Hall can accommodate almost a thousand customers. A figure that is sometimes really reached, especially when there is a musical production consisting mainly of old Prague songs.
The Malostranská beseda (Malá Strana Circle) building, on the corner of Malostranské square, houses three separate establishments: a café, a restaurant and a pub. The restaurant’s menu offers mainly traditional Czech dishes matching Pilsen Urquell beer served with mastery.
Why are they always full at U Pinkasů? Among other things, because of the revered Pilsner beer, which is served from stainless steel tanks at this famous establishment. What’s more, you can eat at reasonable prices, even though the pub is in the heart of Prague.
