Established in 2004 Tynska Bar and Books was the first overseas Bar and Books enterprise. The Czech Republic had just become a member of the European Union and its capital Prague is well known as one of the most beautiful European cities, rivaling Paris, London and Rome. Located in the heart of Prague, just steps away from the Old Town Square, perfectly hidden in a small cobblestone street with a spectacular view of the Tyn Church. Tynska Bar and Books is proof of how sophisticated Prague has become.

What a place! Loved every second in here. Beautifully made cocktails, accompanied by fine cigars. The bar staff (David and Anna) were knowlegeable, charming and pleasant to talk to. They chatted with me throughout my evening and kept me entertained on a cold Prague night! Seriously, if you like fine drinks, cocktails, cigars and a more refined and civilised evening... More

Excellent vintage decor, great jazz music, and perfect service. There was a wide selection of drinks and a fantastic separate menu with different kinds of whisky. The only downside is that it is quite pricey

Comfortable like your private club, or your own smoking room - drop in and have a tasty cocktail or order something straight up.

Bar and Books offers you a comfortable environment and a long menu to choose your favorite cocktail. Especially if it's not too crowded, this place is perfect for a few drinks.

I was there with business partner when the manager arrived drunk and shooted at us because we were .. Well actually I do not know why. Nive ambiance but poor management, where the staff is ok.

We visited recently for some cocktails and were not disappointed. Excellent table service and greeted with some delicious spicy popcorn. The cocktails themselves were great, and poured at the table. Cosy atmosphere with great music and dim lighting. Would visit again.

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.
