Fantastic concept

I love cognac and I so much miss such a place at home. Loads of different cognacs from smaller farmers. You can buy cigars per one and smoke inside 😃. Try the 5-years old cheese and the cognac ginger beer cocktail.

Passed by this place on a cold September night to catch a glass of wine; Superb underground setting, with warm and friendly welcoming staff that will make you feel at home. Wine selection is from all over the world, with the specials written on a chalk board for you to pick. the cheese platter is a great companion to that... More

Amazing cellar away from the tourist traps! Excellent service. Friendly and attendant! Extremely large variety of chech, french and italian wines as well as armaniac. Amazing gothic atmosphere! Also very cheap. 4 glasses of wine and nibbles less than 10€ per person! Must see!

Unique space right in the heart of Mala Strana. Service is professional and kind. We chose a pineau tasting consisting of 5 samples paired with luxurious chocolate pralines...what a breathtaking experience. The tasting cost is 250 czk. Very affordable luxury. Our pleasure to recommend this gorgeous place.

We had arranged to visit this little bar prior to our dinner reservation not too far away and found it quite empty. We all had some lovely cocktails before dinner and vowed to return. Very charming.

Came here for a glass of wine after visiting Prague castle and this was a very cool place! Very small entry and stairs to basement level. Small selection of by the glass wines and small cheese selection but the atmosphere is just brilliant! Highly recommended!

We were most fortunate on the evening when we visited the owner Tereza was there, and she devoted some time with me and my guests offering a tasting of Pineau des Charentes, which was excellent and most informative. The variety of wines and Cognacs which are available in this cellar, will easily compete with any we had frequented in London.... More

Just steps away from the hotel Aria where we were staying. It does not look like much from the street and is not that easy to find. We passed by it several times before we even noticed it. But yes, go down the flight of stairs into the cozy cellar for some wine and cheese and a nice ending to... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
