The Czech capital of Prague has an ancient soul which reveals itself in Old Town, the medieval heart of the city. You can enjoy a cold brew or a freshly shaken cocktail at one of the neighbourhood’s many excellent bars, from a 1940s to 1960s aviation-themed hangout, to a Hawaiian bar serving a knockout Old Cuban and a beer hall on the roof of OD Kotva, a communist-era shopping mall.
If you’re into Instagram, you’ll want to be ready with your camera at Hangar Bar, which is visually very exciting. In the Dušní 9, Prague 1 ‘cocktail quarter’, the theme is ‘aviation from the 1940s to the 1960s’, which translates into two bars with different aesthetics. The Hangar Pilot’s Lounge features Pan Am airlines memorabilia, such as the body of a Clipper aircraft, and you’re served your aviation-themed drinks by waitresses dressed as stewardesses. The Hangar Club meanwhile is dedicated to Hollywood stunt pilots, airplane mechanics, and pilots of the 1940s and ’50s, including World War II pilots.
With hispanic artwork and knick-knacks scattered across the walls, El Mojito Café certainly gives off a latin feel to match its name. On trendy Dlouha Street, natural wood accents warm the space and help create a relaxing environment. The cocktails feature fresh fruit and balanced blends, all artfully assembled. You really should at least start with a mojito — take your pick from 19 different kinds.
Named one of the top four hotel bars in the world at annual spirit awards ceremony Tales of the Cocktail, Black Angel’s Bar is a must-visit for any cocktail-lover in Prague. In the renovated Gothic-style cellar of the Hotel U Prince in Old Town Square, the bar’s atmosphere pulsates with energy amid a 1930s public-house theme. You can enjoy one of history’s forgotten drinks, like the gin-based Corpse Reviver, as you relax on one of the rich, red leather banquettes.
