Meeting the little green fairy!

My wife really really wanted to try Absinthe. I was pretty unsure as I am not a big drinker (neither is she). The place was a bit tricky to find the sign does not say Absinthe Time. For some reason both google maps and Apple Maps both where having issues with its location. We finally found it and... read more

When in Prague you have to try absinthe! This place has several choices and the staff were very helpful explaining the different kinds, and the different ways to drink it.

After living almost 3 yrs in Prague i visited this place once, never more. For me the experience was really the worse in whole Prague. Mybe i was unlucky with my visit but my summary is like a tourist trap. *Bad service. *High prices. *Few customers. *Bad taste of tap beer, (something really wrong with the taste).

Never experienced this before Prague and we had a great bartender who knew everything about Absinthe. He setup the water tower on the table the served the Absinthe. Make sure you ask to see the bottle with the scorpion in it. YIKES. After about an hour and feeling no pain we left for more drinks elsewhere. A great experience, thanks... More

Really great absinthe bar. The bartender Boris was fantastic. He helped explain the different types of Absinthe and the different systems for drinking it ('hot" or "cold"). My boyfriend tried the hot system and said eh like it better than cold. The place was small and intimate. It was not very busy the night we went and the bartender says... More

I was looking forward to trying the green fairy... and read some great and some 'not so great' reviews on locations in Prague. I am not really a person that likes to research stuff... I like to go by feeling... But my feeling was that I shouldn't just walk in to any place and order this mysterious beverage. I picked... More

Nice selection with a bartender who knew more about the liqueur than anyone I've met. Must go, don't have my tab but a 10% service charge is not going to ruin my buzz.

The bar was looking nice and the waitress adviced us in a really good way. But it was quite empty and we had a really bad surprise at the end. We saw that the prices were already quite high (5euros for a glass of absinthe) and then they are adding a 10% fee for servis that is not included in... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
