Great time, great service

Came here after dinner on the hunt for some absinthe. The waitress we had was so helpful. She went over the menu with us and was able to offer suggestions about what we should try and which drinks were served traditionally or on fire. The prices were not too bad but keep in mind it is cash only.

Cheap place, expensive prices (plus hidden costs). An unpleasant place that ruined a perfect evening. We will stay away from it, next time.

Randomly spotted this little bar while walking around the tourist areas of Prague, looks like it's theme is Halloween! We we're lucky to get a lovely armchair upstairs where we could watch the bar staff prepare the drinks! We tried the strawberry mojito which was recommended by the lovely bar staff, and then we decided to get the real deal,... More

We were walking through streets in Prague - Old Town when we found this bar. It was pleasure for us to visit this place. They have good selection of absinthe products and absinthe coctails. The personnel will kindly serve you absinth according to your taste. Certainly I will return there my next time in Prague.

A wide choice of absynth and the kindness of the waitress makes it a must. The preparation phase is a trick. Very very good.

Been here a couple of times, you have to really! Staff great at talking you through the different types of Absinthe on offer, try ones which you couldn't have in the UK. Also, ask for your absinthe flamin', they put on a show for you.

I didn't know anything about absinthe but this is the perfect place to try this mysterious drink based on wormwood, which was banned for some decades but is now perfectly legal. It's an intimate café, like an artists' hangout, and the waitress asked us questions before deciding which of the 20 or so absinthes would suit us. We liked it... More

Half of the pictures above are for Absinthe Time and others are from Absintherie which is a completely separate business that we also visited. Absintherie is super touristy and we found both the environment and service at Absinthe Time much more intimate. At Absinthe Time we were served by Boris who spoke excellent English and whom we understand works there... More
