Neighborhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

Totally Unique and Utterly Brilliant
Feb 2020
What a great and unique experience!

This is a speakeasy style bar, whereby you enter and speak to someone who guides you down a hallway and presses a button, this opens a hidden door which takes you down to the seating area.

You are not handed a menu to choose cocktails, but instead handed cards with ink blots on them in all sorts of colours. You then choose which one you like the look of the most and in return receive a cocktail which somehow ties in with the drawing.

We were informed by the bar staff that these drawings are changed on a regular basis so everyone who books gets to experience the surprise and not know what is coming. The bar staff were lovely and accommodating in every way.

My husband and I went through everyone (10 in total) and for completing this, we were handed a diary and ink pad to place our fingerprints and sign to show we completed it.

They also offered a scent test, whereby you smell 5 different coloured bottles and again, in return receive a drink. It really was a great experience. My husband and I loved everything about it.

Would definitely return and have already recommended this to our friends.

Unique experience

In this speakeasy bar they do not have cocktail menus but paintings on a card and the one you prefer will be a suprise cocktail! One of my favorite cocktail bars in Prague. The staff members pay a lot of attention to their guests!

Letdown and silly concept
Jul 2020 • Couples
Waiter doesn’t tell you what the cocktail tastes like. Instead its setup is that of a Rorschach test - ended up not liking the cocktail so was a waste of money. Go to the other anonymous bar.

AFTER DINNER DRINKS
Oct 2019
After dinner we had booked here for the drinks with their unusual concept. Walking into the main entrance you find yourself in the Bulletproof bar. You then walk down a corridor on the left and there is a door disguised by brickwork to go downstairs to the Shrinks Anonymous bar. IT was really small down there , not many tables. The bartender who was charming came over and explained the concept of looking at blobs on paper which indicates which drink you are having. It was fun and we of course had to have 2 different drinks each. Everybody is quiet and not like a usual bar, very relaxing.

Let down!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Having read many great reviews about this place we couldn't wait to check it out. However, receiving your cocktail is an anticlimax as the build up to it is so dramatic. You press a red button and someone comes to the door and leads you down a secret stairway which is exciting. You are then sat in a private room and given the inkblot cards and told to choose one which you are drawn to. They then make your cocktail and you are given it with very little explanation or background as to the psychological meaning behind your card. We were expecting a 'shrink' actor but were server by a regular bartender with little enthusiasm. The concept is cool but for the money there are much better cocktail bars in Prague which actors and visual effects etc (The Alchemist).

A Must Visit!
Feb 2020
We hunted this out after finding it on TripAdvisor. Was easy enough to make a reservation for that night, and we went on a Saturday. We had a lovely friendly waiter, and we ended up staying the whole night and trying every cocktail from the ink blots! Make sure you stress what you don't like, and not just spirits as they add lots of funky ingredients - my boyfriend said he didn't like whisky and although the first he had had whisky in and was delightful (tasted like popcorn) - he had three more whisky based ones which he didn't really enjoy - one so strong it was undrinkable! Our waiter mixed it up a little but it still wasn't great. Was a fun evening and we loved the interior and the comfy chairs, but I'd recommend one or two and then moving on!

What a great experience!
Feb 2020 • Couples
The experience starts from the moment you arrive at the Shrinks office, accessing the bar through a secret doorway and led down to a underground bar. The cocktail you receive is decided through a physiological test, on which ink blot looks the tastiest to you, the cocktails myself and my partner received are gorgeous and maybe the best cocktails we have ever drank, I would recommend the shrinks office to anyone looking for a fun unique drinking experience.

Absolutely unique experience!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We heard about the Shrinks office while watching prague holiday vlogs on you tube and thought it would be a bit different.
We booked online in advance but didnt receive a confirmation so after reading reviews on here we followed it up by email which was then confirmed.
The shrinks office is located below the super trendy bar and you have to ask to see it.
Wander down a gorgeous dark and mysterious staircase to a cosy office with low lights and atmospheric music.
A chap will come and explain how your drinks will be chosen. Brilliant but simple concept.
Wont spoil it for you but its ace.
We had 2 drinks each. All were delicious.
My husbands 2nd drink had popcorn syrup in it and it was the tastiest cocktail he has ever had.
This was a great find. Worth a visit.
(See if you can find the secret room!) Wink wink!

Mindf**k - in a good way
Jan 2020 • Couples
Visited here with the missus last weekend on a city break in Prague. Booked it in advance for a table for an hour, but as we were visiting after 10pm, we were allowed to sit on due to no more reservations.

Fantastic concept, led into a secret speakeasy venue and choosing visual images or scents which then are presented to you in the form of a cocktail that psychologically should match your taste buds. This worked for me, with my preferred tipples of rum and whiskey being brought over after selection.

Your visit will be an experience as opposed to just a normal few drinks in a bar. For this it may be pricier than your normal bar but worth it as a one off visit.

Just be aware the main bar is fairly well hidden, as we walked past it unknowingly 2-3 times before walking in.

Great idea
Jan 2020 • Couples
Visited this bar on our recent trip to Prague. Didn’t know about it and only heard about it when we visited the Anonymous bar. LOVED it here. One of the best places we visited in Prague would highly recommend.
Such an interesting concept and tasty cocktails! :)
