2D february!

Valentine's Day on February 14 isn't widely celebrated here. In fact, the day of love didn't come along here until the 90s. To us, that's a good thing. Only a few restaurants are fully booked with fixed menus and there's no heavy marketing pressure to proclaim undying love to your significant other with the expected Valentine's gift. Instead, Prague offers what it always does... an invariably endless supply of romantic adventures down it's cobblestoned streets. THE

PRAGUE

VISITOR WWW.PRAGUEVISITOR.EU D /praguevisitor

This month we look at some of the best romantic dates the city has to offer. From an evening with classical music and wine to beautiful dinner views on a boat and delicious cocktails - you can even go ice-climbing! We also dive into the best places to drink in Malá Strana. This beautiful district just under Prague Castle is notorious for over-priced restaurants and tourist-traps, but we've lived here long enough to know where to drink like a local. Join us for a beer at

the historical Strahov Brewery with gorgeous views or for a pint of Guiness and live jazz at U Malého Glena. If wine's more your thing, visit U Staré studny, which has an actual well in the wine bar. For a vibrant night chatting in a local dive bar next to famous Czech politicians, actors and musicians, check out the eclectic Bar Bluelight. Send us a Facebook message and chat with our chatbot Golem to find even more romantic things to do this month!

Our guide to drinking like a non-tourist in

Malá Strana

Like most popular tourist destinations, Prague's Malá Strana area is filled with it's share of gimmicky shops and overpriced bars and restaurants. But don't worry, even this district has its hidden gems. This month, we're telling you about a few of our favorite "non-tourist trap" safe bets to grab a cocktail, beer or glass of wine. From the iconic Blue Light Bar to the latest hot spots including Parlour's sister bar Schody Home Bar or Roesel Beer & Cake, let's grab a round!

Roesel Beer & Cake Mostecká 20

Vibe: Hipster Heaven They had us with beer AND cake. Charming café right next to but hidden away from the chaos of Charles Bridge. Weekly small lunch plates and a rotating selection of craft beer, including IPAs, from local microbrewery Clock. Enjoy your drinks in the quaint hallway courtyard, weather permitting. What we’ll have: Any of the Clock brews on tap (you can’t go wrong)!

Jo’s Bar & Restaurant Malostranské náměstí 7

Vibe: Lively restaurant and bar Our favorite burger place near the castle doubles down with a wide array of drinks and a great bespoke cocktail selection. The beautiful heavily wooded bar and friendly staff makes it one of our favorite places to grab a bite with a few adult chasers. What we’ll have: The fruity Mrs. Raspbee with rosemary and lime or a vibrant glass of Czech Frankovka.

February 2019 | THE PRAGUE VISITOR

11


Napa Bar and Gallery Prokopská 8

Vibe: The neighborhood local The name Napa Bar and Gallery may sound like a snooty wine bar, but really it’s just your friendly neighborhood local. A wide array of cheap drinks, multiple rooms with comfy sofas, a piano (and occasional live music), a pool table and a courtyard make it the perfect place to grab a drink with friends. Pro tip: Try the klobasa from the grill in the courtyard if they’re cooking (usually on a weekend). What we’ll have: Light, crisp lager Ježek from the Moravian Jihlava Brewery, a bottle of wine (which costs less than ten euros), or a classic cocktail – they’ve got it all.

Vinotéka U Mouřenína Tržiště 17

Vibe: Upscale atmosphere that's shockingly affordable Located next to the American Embassy, this cozy and elegant wine bar and shop features both local and French wines with excellent prices for the district, plus light snacks like cheeses, meats and charcuterie plates. Perfect for a late-night romantic glass of wine after a walk through Malá Strana. Fair warning, they close at 10 pm. What we’ll have: A local red from the Moravian region paired with a delicious cheese plate (our favorite is the peppered cheese)

Schody Home Bar Zámecké schody 8

Vibe: Cozy and Cool Sister to our favorite beloved cocktail bar Parlour, the fairly new Schody Home Bar is a cozy secret hidden right on the famous steps leading up to the castle. Hard to find but well worth the search, you’ll find yourself in an intimate, open-concept room decorated with classy dangling lights and a unique tile design. There's no sign, and when you think you've found it, you'll need to knock on the window to be let in. During the days, Schody is offering up amazing coffees as well. What we’ll have: Like Parlour, there's no drink menu, but the bartender will develop a bespoke drink based on whatever desire you can describe. 12

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | February 2019


U Malého Glena Karmelitská 23

Vibe: Classic Jazz Pub U Malého Glena has been a part of the local bar scene since just after the Velvet Revolution. The Jazz and Blues club is packed almost every night. The bar, which translates to “Little Glenn” takes its name from American owner and one of Prague’s founding expats Glenn Spicker who is an avid jazz player himself. What we’ll have: If it’s a school night, we stick with a Guiness, but nothing goes better with jazz than a nice sipping whiskey.

Strahov Brewery Strahovské nádvoří 10

Vibe: Best brew with a view History, history, history. This brewery is located in a monastery that dates all the way back to the 12th century. It’s a bit of a hike up, but the stunning views of the entire city are worth it. Plus, the classic Czech food served in a traditional beer hall is a must-have experience. Pro tip: If you don't fancy the walk up the hill, you can take the number 22 tram from Malostranské náměstí to the Pohořelec stop. What we’ll have: Strahov's own pivo called St. Norbert in a classic Czech mug, duh.

“This is by far the best burger I have ever had, anywhere in the world. I can't even explain how good the burger was (ironically the server made a bit of fun of me because I ordered the plain old "craft burger" instead of one of their specialty burgers, but it was awesome!). They also have some very good beers to choose from. - Brian H from Chicago, TripAdvisor Review 

K THE TWO BROTHERS I N D I A N R E S TA U R A N T “Great find from all the tourist chaos ” - Tripadvisor Review

“Our restaurant descends from an era when celebration of life, culture, luxury, open mindedness, hospitality and happiness all put together were a must. We the two brothers at K have designed the décor of the restaurant in the spirit of what Kapurthala , a European holiday retreat could have looked like. K’s modernity is expressed through its ambience, music and fashionable spirit.”

U Staré studny Tržiště 3

Vibe: Cozy underground wine bar This wine bar has every wine, cognac, and champagne you can think of (it’s no wonder, their other business is wine distribution). Literally meaning “In the Well,” there is an actual ancient well in the bar. Located in a cellar, the bar is elegant and cozy. What we’ll have: With daily wine tastings, the wine of the day is always a safe (and amazing) bet.

Bar Bluelight Josefská 1

Vibe: Super cool dive bar This legendary dive bar boasts an extensive cocktail and wine selection and is known for its elite clientele, from actors and musicians to politicians. Every inch of the space is covered in drawings and signatures, while the bohemian assortment of pictures and beer bottle chandelier add to the eclectic atmosphere. Come for a drink, stay for the compelling conversation (but be prepared to yell, the bar gets packed). What we’ll have: The High Society with Gin, Campari, peach liqueur and pink grapefruit for the perfect blend of sweet and sour, mirroring the mix of the bar’s expat and elite patrons.

The Roxy is one of Prague’s oldest and bestknown clubs. The venue was a popular theatre and ballroom in the 1920’s, but now you’ll find drum and bass, house, techno, and other modern styles on the dancefloor. When the club isn’t hosting a live DJ, it’s the spot for concerts and music festivals.

Revoluční 3, Prague 1 www.epicprague.com Newcomer to the club scene, Epic has made a name for itself as one of the hottest new clubs in the city.

Cross Club 6&

Plynární 23, Prague 7 www.crossclub.cz Cross Club is a labyrinth of small bars and dancefloors pumping music from dubstep and techno to reggae and hip-hop. The club’s psychedelic, industrial décor is a sight to see in itself—every piece of the building from the walls to the ceiling is constructed to move and pulsate with the music, some of it you can even interact with. It’s one of the most unique experiences you’ll have with nightlife in Prague. Cross Club is a bit out of the city center, but worth the trek. Check the website to see what kind of music will be pulsating through the multi-level space. Vibe: Euphoric and alternative, definitely in a category of it’s own.

James Dean 7)

V kolkovně 1, Prague 1 www.jamesdean.cz Okay, we admit that this one’s kind of kitschy— but only in the best way. Named for the iconic rebel and actor, the bar has a classic 1950’s American diner feel turned late-night club. Vibe: Modern twist on a classic time, all ages and all sorts of feels.

Harley’s 7(

Dlouhá 18, Prague 1 www.harleys.cz Harley's is described as the coolest hell on earth. This American-style biker bar opens late and is always rockin’ and rollin’ with live DJs and music acts.

Cocktail guide & wine bar guide

The best cocktail bars in Prague (like the ones listed here) get pretty busy, even during the week. It's always good to make a reservation just to make sure you get a seat (even at the bar).

Le Valmont 9)

Uhelný trh 9, Prague 1 levalmont.cz The Michael Van Cleef Ault concept was inspired by the Miloš Forman movie of the same name, and is decorated in 18th-century French fashion with aubusson carpets, antique sofas, and massive crystal chandeliers. Reservations are all but required, since the 100-capacity lounge fills up fairly quickly. +420 224 267 266 for Reservations.

Schody Home Bar 7^

Zámecké schody 8, Prague 1 Recently opened bespoke cocktail bar and sister to one of our favorite cocktail places, Parlour. Located right on the stairs (schody) leading to the Prague Castle, it's hard to find but well worth the search. Once you're inside, tell the mixologist what flavors you like and he'll fix up your dream cocktail. No website, no number - it's a cozy hidden secret and they're trying to keep it that way.

Black Angel's 8#

Staroměstské náměstí 29, Prague 1 blackangels.cz Nestled in a cozy cellar just across from the Old Town astronomical clock, Black Angel’s will put you in sensory overload. With high cellar ceilings, chandeliers, and ornate decor, it’s a lot to take in. +420 224 213 807 for Reservations.

Bar and Books 8%

Mánesova 64, Prague 2 and Týnská 19, Prague 1 barandbooks.cz Bar & Books is the first overseas extension of the famous New York family of bars, with two locations in Prague (the casual hangout in Mánesova and slightly more formal experience in Týnská). Like its New York counterpart, the bar evokes the feeling of a gentleman’s library. Dim lighting, heavy woods, ornately framed paintings, and of course books (mostly for visual aesthetics). Reservations online.

L'Fleur 9$

V kolkovně 5, Prague 1 lfleur.cz L’Fleur is just a few doors down from Tretter’s. Even before our first drink, we fell in love with the 1920’s feel of the interior, complete with a Mucha-inspired stained glass window towards the back of the bar. The signature drinks all come with their own history, which the bartender is always happy to explain. If you’re feeling a bit more bubbly, try a selection from L’Fleur’s expansive champagne list. +420 734 255 665 for Reservations

Parlour 8$

Hemingway Bar 9!

parlour.cz Maybe Parlour doesn’t want to be found – and that’s fine with us. The tiny little bar at the top of Wenceslas Square near the National Museum has a delightful speakeasy vibe to it, though it’s quickly becoming a popular secret. If you should luck out and discover the nearly unmarked entry, inside you’ll find an intimate, dimly lit bar with old jazz and R&B records playing and amazing craft cocktails served in antique glassware. +420 777 200 015 for Reservations.

hemingwaybar.cz Chances are, if you’ve asked around, Hemingway's Bar has already been recommended. The Old Town hotspot just made the “World’s Top 50 Bars” for the third time, and with good reason. The bar’s philosophy is that every customer must have a seat, so you won’t feel overcrowded here. Reservations are highly recommended. +420 773 974 764 for Reservations.

Krakovská 15, Prague 1

Crazy Daisy 9(

Václavské náměstí 4, Prague 1 crazydaisy.cz Somewhat hidden at the bottom of Wenceslas Square, this one of our favourite new hotspots. First Republic style interior, bar staff dressed the part and videomapping on the walls that pushes reality - it feels like you're in The Great Gatsby. +420 273 130 486 for Reservations.

Bugsy's 9%

Pařížská 10, Prague 1 bugsysbar.cz Bugsy’s is another bar with a great history, popping up just after the Velvet Revolution. Their one constant has been attention to detail and passion for good cocktails. Bugsy’s also loves their bubbly, and boasts over 130 brands of champagne and prosecco, as well as over 90 single malt whiskeys and 100 types of rum. +420 224 810 287 for Reservations.

Tretter's 8@

V kolkovně 3, Prague 1 tretters.cz The Tretter family has been in the bar business for more than 90 years, so it’s no wonder this place feels like walking into a 1930’s Paris or New York cocktail bar. With soft lighting, classic decor and bartenders dressed the part in vintage cocktail jackets, the bar has become an institution. +420 224 811 165 for Reservations.

AnonymouS Bar 9# Michalská 12, Prague 1

anonymousbar.cz It’s nearly impossible to go into the AnonymouS Bar and not smile, the bar is clever at every turn. You can tell the bartender your likes and they’ll make suggestions, or choose from the secret drink menu printed in UV ink and read with a small blacklight. Reservations are taken only until 9pm. +420 608 280 069 for Reservations.

Alchemist Bar 9*

Provaznická 1, Prague 1 thealchemistbar.cz A relative newcomer on the scene, Alchemist is turning out quality prohibition style drinks in their ornate classically decorated location at the bottom of Wenceslas Square. +420 251 510 940 for Reservations.

Karolíny Světlé 26, Prague 1

Cash Only Bar 8( Liliová 3, Prague 1

Vinograf 8(

Senovážné náměstí 23, Prague 1 Míšeňská 8, Prague 1 vinograf.cz Vinograf Wine Bar stays up-to-date to ensure they only serve the very best. The everchanging wine selection is on an easy to use digital tablet – you’re guaranteed to find the perfect glass for you! There are two convenient locations to choose from, each with their own distinct personality, but both cozy and comfortable. This is our personal favorite when it comes to wine. +420 214 214 681 for Reservations.

cashonlybar.cz Just around the corner from its older sibling Hemingway’s, this little gem is making its own name with cocktails like Pin-Up Martini, made with passion fruit, vanilla and champagne. It’s an intimate bar, and they don’t take reservations. There’s also no smoking and, you guessed it—the bar doesn’t take credit cards. Oh, and by the way, they do serve amazing hot dogs.

Na břehu Rhôny 4$

Green Devil's Absinth Bar 7(

Tržiště 3, Prague 1

Týn 7, Prague 1

Four valentines dates So you’re on holiday in Prague for Valentine’s Day and have absolutely no clue what to do - we’ve got you covered! Although Valentine’s Day isn’t much of a Czech thing, it only takes a glance at the stunning castles, charming cobbled streets and baroque gardens to get in the romantic spirit. But if you’re looking to amp up the romance even more, here’s the best

romantic experiences for you and your loved one. From an intimate art gallery visit, to customized chocolate creations and the best cocktail bars, try pairing any of these dates with flowers from coolflowers.cz to really kick your romantic side into high gear.

Date 2: ART, VIEWS, and CHOCOLATE Start your day with an immersion into Czech contemporary art at the intimate Galerie La Femme on Bílkova Street. Then experience the beauty of Prague’s magical Old Town with a horse-drawn carriage ride, followed by a short walk to Chocotopia, where you'll create your dessert for later - a customized chocolate bar you decorate with your loved one. End the evening with beautiful views of the river and Prague Castle at Marina Ristorante with their special Valentine’s menu. Budget: Carriage Ride: Around 1,200 CZK. Customized Chocolate: 380 CZK. Dinner: Entrees range from 250-600 CZK. Reservations: For reservations at Marina (Alšovo nábřeží) call +420 222 316 744 or email rezervace@marinaristorante.cz For more information on Chocotopia (Celetná 15) call +420 226 776 776

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | February 2019


Date 3: GET ALL JACK AND ROSE WITH IT If you're feeling a bit more adventurous (Marina on Date 2 is a stationary boat), be like Jack and Rose from Titanic, take to the open, erm...river... Prague River Boats offers a Valentine’s Day Cruise with a gourmet dinner and live music. Before your adventure, go back to the basics with a walk through Malá Strana’s cobblestoned streets to Petřín Hill, where a statue of romantic poet Karel Hynek Mácha resides. Let’s just say there’s a reason couples line up to kiss in the park on May 1, Prague’s unofficial Love Day. End the night with a handcrafted cocktail at one of Prague’s classy mixology bars, like the intimate Parlour or vibrant Hemingway’s.. Budget: Walk: Free! Dinner Cruise: 1,500 CZK (use the code VISITOR for 20% discount).

Cocktail: One of the best things about Prague is that beer isn’t the only thing that’s cheap - most cocktails are around the 250 CZK mark. Reservations: Prague River Boats (underneath Štefánik bridge, Pier 16) call +420 734 255 067 Parlour (Krakovská 15) call +420 777 200 015 Hemingway’s (Karoliny Světlé 26) call +420 773 974 764

Date 4: Ski trip If a riverboat isn’t quite adventurous enough for you, go snowboarding, skiing or even ice climbing. A frozen waterfall outside of Prague in the mountain town of Liberec provides the backdrop for your excursion, while a qualified instructor guides you through this three hour climbing course. Or spend your time in Liberec hitting the slopes at the Ještěd ski resort with 6 slopes and plenty of cozy pubs. Equipment is provided, check out activeczech.com to sign up. Budget: Ice climbing for two: 3200 CZK A Full Day of Snowboarding or Skiing 8600 CZK Reservations: VIsit Active Czech online to book www.activeczech.cz

BY Bektash Musa Good Soldier Švejk – Dobrý voják Švejk (1957) The Good Soldier Švejk is the abbreviated title of an unfinished satirical dark comedy novel by Jaroslav Hašek. Originally titled Osudy dobrého vojáka Švejka za světové války, meaning The Good Soldier Švejk and His Fortunes in the World War, Švejk is a staple of the Czech cultural scene, often regarded, albeit ironically, as the quintessential Czech. The character is known for his absurd antics and bumbling, dimwit ways of surviving 38

WWI. The comedy is the most translated novel of Czech literature, having been translated into over 50 languages. Its original illustrations were drawn by famed Czech artist Josef Lada, with newer cartoons added by Olympic gold-medalist and illustrator Petr Urban. The novel explores the madness of war as a concept and wonders if the only way to deal with such idiocy is to either be, or fake being, an idiot. Czech director Karel Steklý directed the film and shot almost entirely in Prague. You can see here how the historical Charles Bridge looked

THE PRAGUE VISITOR | February 2019

over 60 years ago. If you recognize the name Švejk, that’s because it’s become a common name for cafés, restaurants and shops across the Czech Republic in honor of The Good Soldier himself. Turkish photographer Bektash Musa fell in love with Prague at first sight. A fan of media, Musa also wanted to show the world the beauty of the city through the eyes of directors who filmed here, pairing photos of actual places with scenes from movies, television shows, documentaries and music video where they were originally shot.
