If you're an Absinthe Virgin or a total old boy this is the place for you! Straight from the bottle or mixed in a fruity cocktail you can get your fix of the green fairy. A must for your stay in Prague.

We went there on a Saturday night with my girlfriend to have some cocktails with absinth. We were very lucky to find a table since at that point there was also some really nice live piano music. The drinks were great, the stuff very fast and polite and the place has a nice atmosphere.

Was so excited to come here on my trip to Prague on 13th February, sure enough the bar looked very cool as soon as we walked in and the cocktails were very fun and beautifully presented. However I can't get over how RUDE the two girls working there were! We arrived at 4pm and we were the only ones in... More

Very atmospheric and attractive little absinthe bar. They have an enormous choice of the stuff and, if you're unsure what to order, the very helpful bar staff will help. Their speciality is very craftily made (expect lots of fire) and presented with water (you'll need it). With some soft jazz and low lighting, you might not want to leave.

Huge array of absinthe both French and Czech; friendly and knowledgeable staff; live pianist playing variations of songs and classical music. Lovely place to get out from the cold.

Came here with my husband for a birthday drink. It's a nicely atmospheric place and it's well located but sadly that's all the good things I have to say. Had cocktails and the drinks were ok, but their prices are completely ridiculous, even if they claim to be top quality (could not have told, tasted the same than the absinthe... More

Such a cute and cosy place, the vibe and interior alone is worth a visit. We had a Czech absinthe and the absinthe beer - can recommend both!

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
