A must visit place. As you descend the candlelit stairs into the vaulted basement you soak in the quirky surroundings and the choice of wines and Cognacs on offer. Knowledgeable staff will help you with their recommendations. We tasted several Cognacs and Pineau de Charente. A very pleasant way to spend an evening.

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

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!

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

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.
