“Multi-faceted jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have been to Obceni Dum several time over the years but keep on discovering new features - this time we were invited to the Mayor's Ball in the Smetena Hall, a beautifully decorated space where an orchestra played Vienese waltzes. In a nearby room, the group Patrola played the songs of Old Prague, including songs by my father, Karel Hasler. Another time we met friends in the basement in a vast room resembling a beer hall where an accordian provided the music.

“Wonderful art nouveau building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Magnificent art nouveau cafe and wonderful exhibition on the second floor of Art Nouveau paintings posters furniture , clothes and textiles. Buy the tickets to the exhibition first and get 20% off in the tea room. I didn't manage to be there to have a guided tour but you still get a very good idea of the magnificence of the building on your way up to the exhibition. And you can peek through the windows to the Mucha decorated ceiling of the main auditorium Don't forget to go downstairs to the American bar and the world,s most spectacular looking beer Keller!

“Splendid Art Nouveau sample”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

The Jugendstil house hosts several attractions such as a beer hall in the basement, a french restaurant and a bistro at the ground floor. Further, it contains the beautiful Smetana concert hall. The entire building has perfectly preserved its Art Nouveau features and acts as a splendid example of the style. The halls, the elevator, the rooms are all gems and a guided tour or a visit at one of ist facilities is a must while in Prague.

“Beautiful!”

It is the place I personally liked most in Prague. Gives you the sensation of a glorious capital where great men created history. Very beautiful at night!

“clickity click”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

another great building worthy of a visit.Some of the buildings can only be viewed from the outside of course as not all are open on certain days, nevertheless still worth going if only for the architectural construction of some of the sights.
