The area
Address
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.
How to get there
  • bridge • 2 min walk
  • national Ave • 5 min walk

Lovely little bar. Excellent bespoke cocktail menu with lots of interesting ideas. Wonderful service. Cocktails really well made and reasonably priced - roughly £8 or so per drink, which for this style of bar is fine. We were sad to depart when it was time to go and have dinner! We will definitely be back when we are in Prague again

We've had an amazing night. Vidma is very accommodating and helpful, suggesting drinks and always making sure we've got full glasses. Vidma even helped us when we requested a drink not on the menu where another employee refused. Over all it was a great night and I would recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful city, the vibe and decor of the bar is very classy also.

Unique and charming venue. We're 2 couples in our 60s that visited early in the evening, before it got crowded. They have an interesting menu of drinks, with something for everyone. Our server was kind, polite, attentive and engaging, even though we weren't the typical customers.
The drinks were good, too. We appreciated the lovely furniture.

My wife and I love to visit Cocktail bars whenever we hear about them. The Alchemist Bar serendipitously came up when we were conducting a search in Prague for the “Alchemy tour” Fantastic!! It had an old school charm - almost like a “Speakeasy” of Decades ago. The staff were awesome, “welcomers,” waitresses, and the Bar Tenders were all super friendly, very knowledgeable, and quick to take care of all their guests. We were shown to our table and given a leather menu that contained approximately 20 signature cocktails and entertaining cocktail philosophy on each page. We tried 4 different cocktails between the two of us over about 90 minutes and completely enjoyed the whole experience. The bartender/mixologist was young, but extremely talented and entertaining! They don’t open until 7 PM, so we had to plan for dinner before we headed here.

This is perhaps the best bar in Prague. And it's for one reason: Valentyn, the bartender.

This dude is more like an artist with cocktails. (If you really want a treat, ask him to make his signature Old Fashioned, which isn't on the menu.)

I randomly walked into this bar one night after being disappointed by a couple other "popular" places. I ended up inviting another friend to come, insisting he was missing out. We ended up staying for hours, having some of the best cocktails of our lives, and making some amazing new friends.

The Alchemist was head and shoulders above any other place I went to. It's energetic without being overly crowded. The staff were all super nice and helpful. Plus it has this fun "magic" vibe, hence the name "Alchemist".

The cocktail menu itself is quite creative. They have a bunch of signature cocktails you can't find anywhere else, and you can't go wrong with any of them. Or just ask Valentyn to make you something based on what you like...you can't go wrong with anything he makes either.

If you're in Prague, you simply have to visit this place. Tell Valentyn I sent ya.

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.

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.

Very cool staff, especially Vidmar. Cosy vintage mixed with music from all decades. Very professional barkeeper always open to special requests (ask for recommendation about Old Fashioned) Definitely a must visit for cocktail lovers.

Loved this bar. The decor is lovely Old Prague, the atmosphere is very calm and chill, with great music and a great range of cocktails. Our bartender Viktoria really took the time to chat and make us feel welcome, as well as tell us a bit about Prague. She really made a good experience into a great experience.
