The streets of Vinohrady are full of restaurants and bars – it’s a really popular area for both Czechs and Expats – plus a few tourists who decide to wander beyond the centre of Prague.
I remember when this space was occupied by a pizza place called La Romantica (wasn’t very good), then Knajpa (better but something missing). Now the place has been completely refurbished as a modern Irish Pub. You won’t see old sewing machines turned into tables, nor pictures of a horse and cart here.
The Guinness (0.5l at 95kc) is excellent and exactly what you would expect from an Irish Pub. The lager is Staropramen, although I prefer Gambrinus – if I’m drinking Staropramen, then I go for the non-filtered (Nefiltrovaný).
The food is good quality although expensive compared to the nearby restaurants.
There are a couple of big screen TVs and they show all the usual sports.
Now the weather has improved, I see that new tables have appeared outside. There’s a large area out front and I’m guessing that it will be pretty popular in the summer.
