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

Beautiful cave bar with an extensive wine and cognac menu. I love beer but kind of nice to take a break from it. Ambiance is to die for, as it is in a sexy and romantic cave. Staff were friendly and helpful. They also serve a nice cheese plate. Worth seeing, for sure!!!

Very cozy and warm place. Excellent choice of wines and cognacs. We tried a Czech Frankovka red wine and it was amazing. The cheese platter is very good. Staff are extremely nice and helpful.

Modern but eclectic wine and cognac bar close to Charles Bridge.  My husband and I enjoyed there glasses of wine and a delcious meat and cheese platter (3 kinds of cheese, 3 meats and olives) for about $25 CDN.  Friendly service and knowledgable. Would have liked to try more local wines as most grapes and cognac sources from France. Great... More

We found this little bar effectively next to our hotel (ARIA) and popped down to a magical cellar bar specialising in Cognac and we imbibed with some lovely local cheeses and sausages
