Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

The best cocktails I’ve ever had!
Aug 2020 • Friends
I don’t even know where to start, this bar is amazing! It has such cute decor, the friendliest of staff and amazing views! The cocktails were amazing, each one (and we had a lot) were 10/10 and after ordering one cocktail, they made us cocktails based on our preference and they got better each time! The staff went above and beyond for me and my friend and we will definitely be visiting again tonight! I personally found the prices very reasonable, granted not ‘cheap’ but compared to every other cocktail bar I’ve ever visited both at home and abroad, these prices cannot be beaten! I would definitely recommend this bar!

My friend and I were seeking a cocktail bar in central prague so decided to visit the alchemist. We had such a great evening, the setting was cozy and the staff were so lovely and accommodating, they have great knowledge of drinks. I’ll be back when I’m next in Prague!

High prices, low value
Mar 2020 • Friends
Can't understand the overly positive reviews for this place. There are several things which are just plain wrong about the bar. Some minor thing is seats which may looked nice but were quite uncomfortable. We were immediately off-put by the high prices for the drinks. Normal beer was just about triple to four times as expensive as the average beer price in bars close by. We tried one of the cocktails in hopes of finding good value there. But even for such a ridiculous high price we got only a little amount which was barely a mediocre cocktail.
The little cherry on top was the fact that we had to wait 20 minutes for one cocktail and two small bottled beers in an almost empty bar basically next to the bartender.

Worst bar experience we had in Prague. Can only highly discourage people going there.

Dear Nicoco, we do feel sad for your experience in our bar. As for the price of the beer, we do inform our guests in advance about the reason why we decided to rise to such levels the prices for beer. That`s because we do not wish to promote drinking beer in our bar, and we do try to discourage this from happening. We do sell only bottles beer and drinking a beer in a bottle in our bar will definitely be, for a beer lover, a lesser experience compared to drinking one in any of the many traditional Czech pubs in Prague. We are a cocktail bar and we do our best to give a great experience to everyone that walks through our doors. That is probably the reason why "the overly positive reviews for this place". Once again, we are very sad to ready about your experience and we hope your next Prague experience to be a more positive one. For that we are leaving here for you a few recommendations in regards with places where you might have a better beer experience. Our favorite pub is "U Vojevodu". Besides that we recommend visiting : " U Pinkasu" , " Lokal" , "Dva Kohouti" , "Černá Svině" and "Andělský Pivovar" Thank you for your visit and we are wishing you a wonderful day.

Best cocktail bar in Prague
Feb 2020 • Couples
This place is definitely worth a visit. The cocktails were great and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. We went for the 'choose your fate' option where an actor comes out dressed up carrying a smoking treasure chest. Inside the chest you pick from a deck of tarot cards and whichever card you choose, determines which cocktail you receive from their secret menu. The barman then makes your cocktails and explains to you what's in your drink and why it's called what it is and the meaning behind the tarot card. The bar was dark to give an old prohibition style feel and the music was good and matched the atmosphere perfectly.

Great bar, but you pay for it.
Feb 2020 • Couples
Really liked this place. Quirky, from the decor, to the drinks, to the music. Great concept. We didn’t do the Tarot cards and just ordered from the drinks menu. Definitely worth a visit.
Why only 4 stars? The drink prices are very pricey when compared with other local bars. You are paying for the uniqueness of the bar. If you ok with that, definitely go, but probably just for one.

Best cocktails & bar staff in the city!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We are fans of the bars in the uk so had to try the European version. We did not leave disappointed and actually made sure we returned a second time to see David (bartender) and the drinks one more time.

Fantastic bar, wonderful staff and what a top themed bar should strive to match. I would recommend this place to everyone!

Ok for One Drink!
Feb 2020
We came here on the back of reviews on a Sunday night and we chose the 'choose your fate' option, which was apparently the last one available (at 9pm, odd!) We had a little man run in with a box full of smoke and told us to choose a tarot card. We were then told what our cocktail would be. I enjoyed mine, my boyfriend didn't want the whisky based one he was told he'd get so they made him something else which he enjoyed. We were sat in a strange little room to the right, which was empty as the main bar was full so the atmosphere was a bit strange. Weird cover music of rock songs put us off staying past the one so we left. A fun idea, and maybe the atmosphere would be better in the main bar, but would recommend for at least one for the novelty.
