The best armagnac, cognacs and wines.

Every time we visit Prague, we come back here. We enjoy the great wines and the tastings of Armagnac, cognac and pineaut de charentes. We've had the excellent boar pâté, the smoked almonds and the tête the moin cheese with them. Our greatest recommendation when visiting Prague!

Set in a series of downstairs cavernous rooms, this wine bar offers a marvelous way to take a break from the heavy meals we tend to consume on trips to new places. I dropped in on the recommendation of so many other TA Reviewers and was incredibly pleased with my evening's fare. While there are several other choices, I selected... More

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.

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.
