Some say it is the best Czech invention ever: Pilsner! Prague has countless bars located in historical cellars and buildings as well as large beer halls and modern cafés. The traditionally brewed beer is cheaper than water in many pubs, and in Europe’s beer capital not a day goes by without a brew. Below is an overview of the five best beer bars in Prague. Na zdravi (cheers)!
This huge cellar bar and club is located between Wenceslas Square and the Old City Square. Although the name suggests otherwise, Double Trouble is the most popular Gothic cellar pub in the city. The building was meticulously restored and is frequented by a wide variety of people; from local residents and groups of bachelors to passers-by and businessmen. This is the perfect place in Prague for an unforgettable evening.
